How do you get rid of a tailor's bunion?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi, I have a tailor's bunion that I need to get rid of, but I refuse to go in for surgery. There must be another way to shrink it. I hope there's a massage technique, especially for bunions, or a home treatment like exercises or something along that line.

A tailor's bunion is identical to a conventional bunion, however it is located on the opposite side of the foot. Bunions develop on the inside of the foot, beneath the big toe. Tailor's bunions form at the base of the little toe on the outside of the foot.

Simple changes can help alleviate the pain of a tailor’s bunion and probably reduce the size but not eliminate the bump. Try the following remedies:

To reduce pain and avoid the tailor’s bunion from rubbing against your shoe, place an orthotic pad over it.

Wear shoes with a wide toe box and are flexible. Shoes with narrow toes and pointed toes, as well as high heels, should be avoided. Add a customized shoe insert to ease pressure on the foot’s outer side.

Up to three times each day, apply ice to your foot for 5 to 10 minutes.

To reduce swelling and ease pain, take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs) such ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin).

Calf stretches should be done twice a day. Face a wall with your toes pointed in that direction. To stretch the calf, take a step back with the afflicted leg. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds.

While there's no natural treatment that can cure a tailor's bunion completely, the following remedies can shrink the size and alleviate its symptoms;

  • Tailor's bunion insoles like a silicon bunion pad
  • Shoes for tailor's bunion: Should be flexible and have a wider toe space.
  • Ice application
  • Daily calf stretches

You don't need surgery to shrink your bunion; there are several other ways you can manage the condition. You can use bunion splints and toe separators to straighten the toe. You may also use ice, mobilization exercises, massage, change your footwear, and manage your weight.
