Will A Bunion Go Away On Its Own?
Is it possible to cure a bunion without surgical intervention?
Remember, bunions are a progressive disorder and do not go away on their own. It’s important to have a doctor evaluate your bunion early, as other issues may develop as the bunion progresses.
Pain can be managed in the early stages of bunion development, but will typically worsen until surgical correction can address the root cause. Conservative treatments are designed to help keep you comfortable, and include:
- Toe spacers

However, these conservative treatments will not, ultimately, fix the problem and you may develop some additional symptoms, including:
- Toes cross over
- Bone spurs
- Ball of foot pain
There used to be a school of thought that you should delay bunion surgery as long as possible. However, now many doctors feel that it is important to receive an evaluation early on, to determine if it’s appropriate for you to consider surgery as other issues may develop as the bunion progresses.
