No bunion, but bunionette (or tailors bunion)

by Jamie
(Globe, az)

I was just diagnosed with one a few days ago. It's red and puffy and most of my old shoes hurt. The bunion is on my little toe! I read a lot about splints, bad foot conformation,etc and will have to try some of these out. My problem, I work heavily on my feet, hiking a lot on never terrain. I'm worried it will affect my ability to work.


My first try is more barefoot work and investing in a splint, correction pad and minimalist shows, trying to strenghten my feet. I started stretching and yoga to improve conformation! Lets hope!

i had my bunionette " shaved ", i.e . had it surgically "improved " , it is minimally invasive surgery - 2 weeks recovery - and while it is not perfect it, is much better and was definitely worth it.

I also wear good orthotics + wide/healthy shoes.

Cheers, Ilana
