Bunions can be painful and debilitating, but they can be addressed through certain exercises. Exercises such as heel raises can help to strengthen the muscles around your bunion, which help to correct the displacement of your big toe. To perform heel raises, simply lift your heel up ¾ of the way, hold for three seconds and gently lower back down. Strive to do 10 repetitions of heel raises per day.*
Toe crunches are another exercise that can strengthen the muscles around a bunion. Place a washcloth on the floor and pick it up with your bare feet by crunching your toes. Hold the crunch for three seconds, then release and repeat for 10 repetitions.
