Do I need surgery if I have a bunion?

No, you do not need to have surgery if you are looking to manage the pain and prevent the condition from progressing. Many conservative, noninvasive remedies have been successful in treating bunions. The main goal is to remove pressure on the affected joint and reduce inflammation to eliminate your pain. Changing shoes to models that have padded soles, low heels, and wider, rounded toe boxes that don’t squeeze your foot helps relieve strain on the toes and joint. You may need to pad the area to prevent the irritation from rubbing against your shoes. Icing the bulge can help reduce some of the swelling as well.

If you are looking to correct the misalignment, however, you will need surgery, since bunions are a problem with the bones deforming. While effective for dealing with discomfort, conservative treatments can’t reverse the damage. If you’re struggling with bunion pain but don’t want to go through surgery, don’t ignore the problem. There are noninvasive ways you can eliminate your discomfort.
