Orthotics will prevent occurrence of them in the first place.
Custom made orthoses support the skeleton, muscles and fascia in the correct position. Orthoses are a long-term solution to prevent reoccurrence by controlling and / or correcting the mechanics that cause the problem.
Orthotics for bunions include:
- Medial longitudinal arch support which helps to position the weight of the inside arch / bunion onto the centre of the foot.
- A built in angulation for more advanced cases
- Forefoot cushioning materials.
- Hollowing out orthotic material under sensitive forefoot joints.
