Treatment for bunions doesn't have to involve surgery, consider all your options before you commit to drastic action.

Bunions are painful and certainly no fun – the good news is that there are many great bunion correctors on the market that can ease your pain naturally (no surgery required).

Bunion Corrector

After a long research and many happy customers, I've decided to explain you, in this article, how a bunion corrector can truly help you, despite all the negative comments of people that say only surgery can help you! 

First of all, i'll give you some ideas of these people: they may have opted for surgery instantly, without even trying to find a less painful way to correct their bunions.Most of them, maybe yourself included, isn't sure how a bunion corrector can help you, so it's easier to say that it won't work. But how can you be sure, if you didn't tried? 

In this article, i will try to cover all the benefits that bunion correctors have and explain to you why it's worth to give it a try!

What is a bunion and what are the benefits of using a bunion corrector?

Bunion Corrector

Bunions effect what is referred to as the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint at the base of the big toe.

The MTP joint is critical in bearing and distributing weight during various activities. The misalignment and pain can impair how the foot is meant to function.

Bunion correctors help realign the MTP joint, relieve pain, and help your foot bear and distribute your weight properly. The bunion correctors not only relieve pain, but also prevent further damage.

Bunion correctors are a conservative treatment option for patients who suffer from bunions. While the most permanent and effective form of treatment for bunions is  surgery, there are conservative techniques patients can practice to slow the progression of the condition and/or reduce pain symptoms and with time, even correct the bunion.

A bunion corrector gently realigns the big toe, taking away pressure from the other toes, releasing built up tension and relieving soreness. It can also give post-operative relief.It is ultra thin and comfortable and can be worn with socks and shoes. Suitable for both day and night wear.

Main benefits of a bunion corrector:

Bunion sleeves are a type of bunion correctorwhich performs three main functions:

  • Protects. By creating a barrier between your MTP joint and your shoe, bunion sleeves protect your foot from the discomfort of friction, rawness, and pain. This protection allows you to continue your usual activities by decreasing the pain of your bunion.
  • Straightens. Bunion sleeve correctors realign your big toe into its proper position. By straightening your big toe, the pressure on your MTP joint is alleviated, improving your balance and enabling you to walk, run, or engage in other activities.
  • Rehabilitates. The misalignment doesn’t just cause problems with your MTP joint – it also creates tension in the ligaments of your foot. Bunion correctors help to relieve that pressure and prevent the problem from becoming worse.

How to use a bunion corrector?

At the beginning, wear the Bunion aid only for an hour at a time until your foot becomes accustomed to it. After the first week it is recommended to wear the bunion corrector regularly during the night and for 2-3 hours during the day.This is a very important thing to know, and also that effects won't appear in the first days.You must be conscientious that it's a medical issue, not just a trend! You have to be patient and wait for the results.

When should surgery be considered?

Surgery is an option if your bunion is painful or affecting your life in other ways.

You need to think carefully about this option as it can take six to eight weeks to recovery, and you will probably need crutches and an ortho-boot to help you walk. An operation can work but should only be undertaken if all other interventions have failed and you’re suffering significant symptoms. I would always try different footwear and treatment with orthotics and splints first. If you choose to proceed, do your research and choose someone with a good history of foot surgery because once you go under the knife, options for treatment are reduced dramatically.

I really hope that i could help you and give you a clearer view about how a bunion corrector can help you and what it's exactly doing.

Hi, Gail Stevens

If your bunion corrector isn’t tight, then you may have ordered a larger size that you usually wear. Please contact us at support@genesischarm.com if you want another size. Thanks
