Strengthening Exercises for Bunion
- Treatment Reviews
- Videos & Guides
Good to read I was told last year I needed 3 different surgical procedures on my left foot for bunion (remove) hyperextended toe (pin) and morton's neuroma (remove nerve). The thought of failure propelled me to ice my foot for a year every day for 10 mins and strengthen with roller exercises. 12 months later I ran a PB at Edinburgh marathon aged 51. Bit of a miracle really. Surgery definately only when all other options have gone. I have blogged about it extensively at:: www.thegrimrunner.tumblr.com

I started developing a bunion on my right foot since I was 7, so I've had lived with the problem most of my life.
Pilates is the answer. Probably even more effective than yoga, because pilates actually strengthens your ankle/feet muscles. It also corrects your posture, so your other joints won't have to overcompensate
