Bunion splints provide one size fits all bunion correction
Bunion Advice

 

Shopping for shoes when you have bunions can be a major pain in the feet, as the bony deformities tend to widen the forefoot and present a barrier to getting tootsies to fit into ballet flats, pumps and other shoes enjoyed by those who are narrow of foot.

However, when it comes to bunion correction devices, ladies and gents need not worry about such fit issues.

Bunion splints, such as the Bunion Aid by Alpha Orthotics, are one-size-fits-all, meaning that they are suitable for men, women and teens with bunions ranging from minor to advanced.

Additionally, the Bunion Aid can be worn on either foot – or even both at the same time.

Early bunion splint designs rendered the wearer immobile, because they didn't allow for flexibility in the foot. However, the Bunion Aid features an award-winning hinged design that allows people to obtain non-invasive bunion treatment but doesn't fully hinder movement.

It's generally recommended that individuals try conservative means of bunion correction before resorting to bunion surgery, which can be painful and expensive. Many people have found that regular use of bunion splints is an effective way to reduce the appearance of bony deformities sans scalpel.
