Bunions are bony bumps that form at the base of your big toes. Sometimes they are caused by ill-fitting shoes, but most often heredity and the shape of your feet are to blame. If you elect to have surgery to remove painful bunions, it is important to plan for custom orthotics post-surgery to protect your feet and maintain the correction of the surgery.*
Bunion surgery should only take place when you and your doctor have exhausted all other treatment methods. In addition to custom orthotics, remember to elevate your feet and keep them dry post-surgery.
