Why a Bunion forms
A bunion forms primarily because of a misalignment in your feet that affects the way that you walk and move. Yes, bunions can be hereditary in many cases; however, this doesn’t change the fact that the misalignment is the character trait that is passed down, which turn causes the bunion.
How to Get Rid of Bunions Naturally
Most people think that surgery is the only treatment when it comes to bunions; however, foot mobilisation is extremely successful in most cases. Foot mobilisation helps to address the underlying cause, correcting the way that someone stands and walks as well as straightening the big toe. Conservative management, such as foot mobilisation, is recommended as early as possible, even if the sufferer feels no pain. Studies tell us that our bodies only feel pain during the last seven to ten per cent of the progression of any condition. As a result, by the time a bunion starts hurting, significant irreversible damage has occurred. The sooner bunion treatment is started, the sooner the underlying cause can be addressed.
Below is an example of a before and after x ray taken of one of the many successful bunion patients that have been treated through foot mobilisation. As can see there is a huge change with the bunion now being straight.

How to Prevent Bunions
The future prevention of bunions is another key advantage of foot mobilisation therapies. Once the misalignment within the foot is addressed and the foot is strengthened, the biomechanics of your foot is changed long term as a result you are far less prone to getting a bunion or progression of a bunion. Your walking and running pattern do change long term which has a positive effect long term.
Orthopaedic Bunion Surgery
In some very advanced cases (particularly in you have a large bony lump), surgery needs to be considered as a bunion treatment option. However, we generally find that surgery is avoidable and we won’t recommend a surgical approach until we are 100% sure that the issue cannot be resolved with foot mobilisation and physical therapy.
