Bunions are usually managed with rest, cold applications, cushioning pads, orthotics, and anti-inflammatory medications. A change of footwear to lessen pressure on the affected toe and joint is often helpful. A local injection of cortisone (steroid) in the inflamed area can rapidly reduce the pain, swelling, and tenderness from acute inflammation.
If initial treatments are not effective, orthotics are often prescribed.
