Can you naturally correct a bunion?
The short answer is no. Bunions can’t be reversed, and unfortunately, they don’t go away on their own. Once you have a bunion, it will likely continue to grow over time. Luckily, many people don’t need to have surgery to treat their bunions.
How can I straighten my bunions without surgery?
You can wear a splint at night to hold your toe straight, which may help to prevent your joint from stiffening in the misaligned position and slow bunion formation. But once you remove the splint, the toe will return to where it was. You can also wear toe spacers, which alleviate pressure on your toes.
