At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we know that bunions occur when the joint at the base of a toe moves out of place and begins to drift toward the next toe. This happens most commonly to the big toe but can also occur with the pinky toe. Although this is primarily a biomechanical defect in the structure of the foot, wearing shoes with tight, narrow toe boxes can speed the progression of bunions. Your Podiatrist will know the best way to treat your bunion. In the meantime, we have several ways to help:
- Spreader with Bunion Combo—when it comes to bunions, the Spreader with Bunion Combo does double duty for the health of your foot. It separates and aligns the toes into proper position while at the same time cushioning and protecting the bunion. It also prevents the first and second toes from rubbing against each other, eliminating painful irritation and the possibility of
- Bunion Care Compression Sleeve—another versatile product is our Bunion Care Compression Sleeve. A large, soft gel pad encased in a soft satin fabric sleeve that slips over your foot gives immediate relief to the pressure of footwear. It is also helpful in reducing scarring after surgery and provides compression to the forefoot and midfoot. The sleeve is latex-free, hypoallergenic and can be washed and re-used over and over.
- Gel Tailor’s Bunion Pad—bunions that develop on the little toe are known as Tailor’s Bunions. To give cushioning over the bunion we’ve created the Gel Tailor’s Bunion Pad which slips easily over your little toe. It creates a barrier between the bunion and your shoes and is made of premier gel with a very soft and stretchy loop that allows it to fit comfortably over your toe. Designed for use in all styles of footwear, this pad is washable and fits either the left or right foot.
- Gel Bunion Sleeve – our most popular seller is the Gel Bunion Sleeve, which comes in a tan satin fabric that provides a comfortable fit on either foot and gives immediate relief from footwear pressure. This washable and re-usable sleeve provides a superior soft gel pad inside the fabric that conforms to your foot and does not create bulk in your shoes.
