Bunion Prevention

Peter Wishnie, D.P.M.

Keep track of the shape of your feet as they develop over time, especially if foot problems run in your family.

Preventing a Bunion:

1. Exercising your feet can strengthen them. Learn to pick up small objects with your toes.
2. Wear shoes that fit properly and that do not cramp or pinch your toes. Women should avoid shoes with high heels or pointed toes.
3. Orthotics will support the foot and take pressure off.
4. Get treated immediately if notice any changes in your feet. The earlier you get treated, the easier it will be to treat and may prevent surgical intervention!
