Years of improper footwear and stress on our feet can create bunions caused by inflammation in the joint of our feet. This condition can cause a large amount of discomfort, but there are ways to help reduce the size of bunions so they cause less pain. Maintaining a normal weight is the best way to avoid most of the pain because it will put less stress on your feet. Ice and Epsom salts are great for reducing inflammation and swelling. Olive oil and castor oil can also help get the blood flowing in your feet and reduce inflammation.
- Bunion is a term for those big bumps next to our large toe on our foot, and they are actually a sign of inflammation in the joint.
- Dip a thin cotton cloth into warmed castor oil and wrap it around the bunion.
- dissolve half a cup of Epsom salt into a small tub of hot water and soak your foot into it for 20 minutes, twice a day.
“”Years of motion and pressure on the joint forces the big toe to bend toward the others, which causes an often-painful lump on the joint.””
