I am a 30 year old male. My left toe has been turning inward more with the years. I'm pretty sure it is genetic since my father, 52 years old, has the same problem. I want to do everything I can to prevent my bunion from getting worse and preventing pain in later years. What non-surgical things can I do to prevent painful bunions or even correct the bunion?
I bought some foot insoles to correct my pronation. I've tried gel toe seperators, but they don't seem to do much. I've also tried the Profoot Goodnight Bunion which stretches the big toe out when going to sleep (but I wake up at night because it hurts after a few hours). I've heard there is also a way to bandage the toe for daytime walking.
Could you please advice on these techniques and any other techniques you recommend?
