The short answer is yes! But this depends on the severity of the bunion deformity and how long the problem has existed before beginning a bunion rehabilitation program.
In our experience, we have found that the Big Toe Stretch is a helpful first-line exercise in achieving bunion correction. Stretching the tight muscles and tendons on the inside aspect of the big toe is an important step in this process, though performing this stretch alone may not be enough for most people to successfully eliminate their bunion, especially if the bunion has been present for a long time and the tissues that surround and act upon the big toe are tight and stiff.
For many people who have a bunion, using Correct Toes toe spacers in combination with men’s and women’s foot-healthy footwear (i.e., footwear that respects normal and natural foot and toe anatomy) is one of the most effective strategies to help reverse or prevent bunions. One additional tool you can use to help address an existing bunion is BlackBoard ToeBands. There are also several easy exercises (in addition to the Big Toe Stretch) that have proven helpful. This video precisely demonstrates these exercises.
