Bunion Care Products - Bunion Treatment and Pain Relief
A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe. Bunions are often caused by genetic predispositions and biomechanical abnormalities, but they can be exacerbated by wearing ill-fitting footwear. The swelling, redness or soreness around your big toe joint when you have a bunion can cause persistent pain and decreased mobility. Whether formed as a result of a structural genetic defect, stress on the foot or a related chronic condition like arthritis, your bunion and its symptoms can be treated with the help of today's products. At HealthyFeetStore.com, we carry a number of brand-name bunion relief products - including bunion socks and bunion pads - to mitigate the pain and swelling commonly caused by bunions.

A bunion is a bony bump or ridge that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe. (A smaller form of the ailment, a bunionette may form at the base joint of the pinky toe.) They form when the big toe is pushed against the second toe, angling the big toe's base joint toward the inside of your shoe. Skin overtop of the bunion may appear red and sore.
Preventing bunions begins with the shoes. Avoid tight and/or narrow shoes that may cause or exacerbate bunions. Select a pair with a wide toe box - no pointy toes - and make sure the shoes conform to your foot without undue pressure. Make sure there is a comfortable space between the tip of your longest toe and the end of your shoe.
While prevention is most ideal, the Healthy Feet Store has a great selection of many bunion care products for reliable, recommended treatment and pain relief. Our everyday low prices mean you can take advantage a range of solutions like bunion pads, arch supports, and gel toe separators.
Bunion products help cushion bunions and reduce or prevent inflammation. Pads, shields, gel sleeves or gel toe caps, can help restore mobility when applied to the bunion in its early stages. Wear well-fitting shoes with a wide toe box to prevent a small bunion from becoming even more painful, or prevent bunions outright. Boost your shoe's comfort with arch supports or orthotic insoles that evenly distribute weight across your foot.
Bunion shoes are also recommended for bunion prevention and pain relief. To learn more about bunions, visit our bunion information page.
Bunion Pads and Arch Supports
If a bunion has developed, it may be necessary to wear a special bunion pad such as a bunion shield, gel sleeve, or gel toe cap to restore comfortable mobility. In its earliest stages, you can prevent a small bunion from becoming painful by wearing well-fitting shoes that have a roomy toebox and supplementing them with arch supports or orthotic insoles
to ensure that your weight is evenly distributed across your foot.
Gel Toe Separators
Gel toe separators promote comfortable toe spacing and can provide relief when a person's bunion has progressed to the point where their big toe sits above or below the toe beside it.
