How to Avoid Getting Bunions

PowerPoint Presentation:

Most people who have bunions have a hereditary genetic condition called overpronation. This means that when you're standing or walking, your feet have a tendency to roll inward toward the big toe joint. Over time, the toe joint deforms, causing a bunion.

PowerPoint Presentation:

While both men and women can develop bunions, women develop them more often because of their choice in footwear

PowerPoint Presentation:

Even flip-flops and ballet flats can cause bunions. Any shoe without proper support for your feet can cause them to roll inward.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Most people have mild signs of bunions before they notice any discomfort. Foot problems can be treated easily if they are identified early . So make an appointment with a bunion specialist .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wear shoes with lots of toe room.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Go barefoot. Ditch your shoes whenever you can. Develop a household habit of removing shoes. Walk around the park on grass in your bare feet for 20 minutes a day.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Insert orthopedic padding in your shoes when necessary to make each pair of shoes you wear on a daily basis as comfortable, supportive, and as forgiving as possible. Cushioned sports socks, bunion pads and cushions can also help, but make sure you buy larger sized shoes to make room for such padding rather than allow your shoes to get crowded and uncomfortable, conditions that cause bunions in the first place.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Incorporate food massages, foot soaks, and other foot therapies that relieve foot pressure and keep the muscles, ligaments and joints in your feet flexible and soft.
