... ^ I agree that's the best. One of the things they will probably do for you is see about getting orthotic inserts. You can wear them in your shoes and this will help out a lot if you are on your feet all day. Men do get them, my brother has them pretty bad (he's 25). I have had 3 surgeries for them and I almost never wear high heels.. I pretty much restrict them to dances,... (7 replies)

... My pod told me that orthotics are the main way to treat neuromas. If you had bunions and now a neuroma, you likely have a biomechanical problem that should be addressed. My best orthotics came from a pedorthist rather than a pod. ... (4 replies)

... fashionable shoes. I didn't have much pain with them until I was in my 20's and 30's, one bunion is gone and I have one to go. When you get your bunions corrected I wish you the best luck and let us know how it goes. Good luck! ... (5 replies)
... I agree with your doctor who said to ditch the orthotics and get into some strengthening exercises. I had orthotics years ago and all they did was make my feet very, very weak, which, in turn, made my leg muscles weak. ... (11 replies)
... The best thing you can do is get yourself into an exercise program of some sort where you stretch your muscles or else use a slant board or buy some yoga toes. ... (4 replies)
... So, I have been actively partaking in these outdoor pursuits for years, and over the last three or so years have noticed that my bunions have been getting larger. I don't recall ever having feet without bunions. ... (6 replies)
... acia, the elastic band under your foot, is too tight, it can easily make your feet cold because tight muscles effect the blood flow to your feet and ankles. The best thing to do is to walk barefooted on hardwood floor, if you have hardwood floor. ... (10 replies)

... I had at the golf ball as well and guess what caused it_the second pair of orthotics!! Please do me a favor and ditch those things and go barefooted, if you can. Your arch will come up, but i will take time. Also, loosen your toes because you most likely have cartilage between them and that is what is making your toes tight. There are exercises on the Intenet that will... (16 replies)
... I went back to the podiatrist the other day and he seemed to think there was no reason to worry, and considering there's obviously some damage along with my bunions, there's going to be pain. He said there could be a little arthritis but the "best defense" at this point is the orthotics. I told him my wishes to be "more than functional" and do 5Ks, lunges, etc. He told me to...

... a girl's post on some site about her experience. She seemed to have such a youthful, spunky attitude about it. She was happy and realistic. Reading that was the best thing for me. I then knew that I had to be strong and go for it! ... (15 replies)
... Hi Chubstercat, that is where I was last year. My foot has given me problems for many years, but I had made accomodations and managed okay.

... One of the absolute best things you can do is get a really good pair of orthotics. The pt got them for me and they were much cheaper. ... (7 replies)
... PLEASE!!! Use an OS for this operation. Mark Myerson at Mercy Hospital in Baltimore is probably one of the best. I had both bunions removed by a podiatrist and the second operation was a disaster. I have to wear special orthotics to compensate for the poor "carpentry". ... (17 replies)
... high shoes as much as possible, and there's a good chance that they'll stabilize. Unfortunately I live in New York so I do a LOT of walking, so even though my bunions aren't that severe, they still hurt a lot and one day I just got fed up and decided to stick to my guns. ... (39 replies)
