Did You Know You Can Manage Painful Bunions Easily? All You Need Is An Ordinary Hair Band

Bunions… they happen. Bunions are those gross protruding bumps that are formed on the edge of your foot. They’re usually caused by wearing shoes that don't fit you properly or high heels that are extra high.

They’re ugly and sometimes, even painful making it difficult to walk or stand or just have your foot in a shoe. According to Little Things, some people are even embarrassed by them when they have to show off their feet.

They are pretty common, but in extreme cases they may require surgery. Most cases of bunions can be taken care of at home with some prevention and management tips. To manage your bunions, just loop a strong elastic hair tie over your big toes. Then gently pull your toes apart. Don’t use a rubber band because they snap easily. This helps to keep your toe joints straight and offers then relief from being compressed. This is especially helpful if you’ve been wearing tight shoes all day.

The number one rule to preventing bunions is always wearing comfortable shoes that are good for your feet. You can also try exercising your feet. Keep them limber and flexible by sitting down with your shoes off. Then lift your heels and hold for 10 seconds. Just repeat that ten times. Then lift only the balls of your feet, hold for 10 seconds and repeat 10 times. You can even do it while you watch TV.
