Self-management

Prevention

To help prevent bunions:

  • Choose shoes carefully. They should have a wide toe box — no pointy toes — and there should be space between the tip of your longest toe and the end of the shoe.
  • Your shoes should conform to the shape of your feet without squeezing or pressing any part of your foot.
