According to Priya Parthasarathy, DPM, a bunion specialist and spokeswoman for the American Podiatric Medical Association, “A bunion is an enlargement of the joint at the base of the big toe — the metatarsophalangeal (MP) joint — that forms when the bone or tissue at the big toe joint moves out of place.” As the movement forces the toe to bend toward the others, an often painful, prominent bump is formed.

For a remedy you can do in your sleep (literally), Dr. Parthasarathy says that wearing a bunion splint at night can stretch out the tightened ligaments and provide relief during the day. “I tell my patients that you will either love these products or hate them, but it is definitely worth a try,” says Parthasarathy.
