Do bunion splints really work?

Asked 2 years ago

Does anyone here know someone who avoided bunion surgery has used a splint to correct their bunion instead? Did it work, was it painful, and how long did it take?

There is no strong scientific evidence to suggest these devices work at correcting or improving a bunion.

Some Research suggests that bunion correctors are not productive at realigning your big toe or at getting rid of bunions.

But It may provide some temporary pain relief, while you wear them. However, If your condition is relatively moderate, a bunion splint may help alleviate pressure and pain in your feet and forbid further complications.

While toe separators and big toe splints can bring pain relief, research suggests they cannot correct a bunion deformity. At best, they're a good intervention in the early stages before the deformity. Once the deformity forms, surgery is the only way to permanently correct it.
