KT Tape: Bunion

Bunions are much more common in females than in men. This leads most to believe that bunions are often time caused by wearing tight fitting shoes or heels. Genetics also plays an important role in determining the individual’s susceptibility to developing the condition.

Often the bunion is not painful and the individual leads a normal active life. Other times the bunion can be very painful, even debilitating. Pain is usually very achy and typically radiates to the toes and along the arch of the foot. Due to the abnormal positioning of the bones in the foot, sharp nerve pains could also be present.

KT Tape can help reduce pain and inflammation for many common injuries*. Unrestricted footwear should always be the chosen for those with bunions. Surgery is another option for those with serious pain and worsening symptoms.
