According to podiatrist Dr. Christin Runkel, there are many ways to help prevent recurrence of a surgically corrected bunion. "Just like a dentist usually fits a patient with a mouth retainer after braces, that same concept applies to a nighttime bunion splint. When healed after surgery, a patient can wear a soft, comfortable splint to prevent shifting of the newly realigned toe. It usually is worn when the patient is non-ambulatory or during sleeping hours."

"Finally, wearing good, supportive shoes will reduce the risk of recurrence. For example, you should pick a shoe with a firm back and one that provides good arch contact, says Runkel."
