If you or someone you know has a bunion, typically people believe the only option is to have surgery. While this is the only way to get rid of the bunion, there are many cases when conservative treatment reduces pain and slows to progression down such that you may not need to worry about surgery - at least not as soon. Bunions are the result of compensation within your foot structure. Very commonly, a particular joint has more than the normal amount of movement which creates instability and allows a slow deviation/dislocation of a joint that is actually within the arch of your foot. Wearing an orthotics increases stability to this joint and helps your foot to function in a more balanced way which can alleviate pain and also slow the progression of a bunion.
