How to Avoid Pesky and Painful Bunions

If you’ve ever known someone who has had a bunion, you’ve probably heard all about how awful they are and how painful it is to walk. They are so much easier to avoid, though, than to get fixed. Just follow these few guidelines and you’ll be just fine.

How to Avoid Pesky and Painful Bunions

  1. Know when a bunion is forming. The skin over a joint will be red and painful.
  2. If you own shoes that don’t actually look like the shape of a human foot, get rid of them! They are not good for your feet.
  3. When shopping for shoes, make sure that the pairs your purchase have a good amount of room for your toes. When you put them on, you should be able to move your toes around pretty freely and comfortably.
  4. Another way to check that there’s enough room for your toes is to push in the top of your shoe above your toes, leaving a dimple under your finger.  If there’s no dimple, you need a bigger size.
  5. When possible, go barefoot around the house. By doing this you’re keeping pressure off of your toes.
  6. Opt for open-toed sandals when the weather is nice and warm. Your toes like to breathe, too!
  7. As sad as it is, you should absolutely avoid high heels. Yes, they make your legs look great, but are they worth the trouble and pain of bunions? If you really feel the need to wear them, though, try not to wear heels that are higher in 2 ¼ inches tall.
