Foot health including bunions - Archive

December 13, 2011 11:22AM
Hi Chiron Dave,

I seem to be in the beginning stages of a bunion. I'm frustrated because my right foot turns out, which seems to be causing it because I use a lot of pressure to push off right in the first metatarsal area. Dr. F (a chiropractor) said he couldn't do anything, and he still wanted me to wear the orthotics although they hurt my back. Or, come back with a lot of money ....

So I'm taking this into my own hands. I bought a bunion split on ebay to try to provide some reverse pressure to the metatarsils. I also bought some toe straightening socks which might help plus maybe straighten a few of my other toes which are twisted. I'm going to soak in the hot tub every couple of nights and try to do some really intense massage on my calves and shins. My calves are ALWAYS tight despite regular stretching.

Do you have any other ideas?

Thanks much,
Jan
