Q
Do bunion splints correct bunions?

A

The answer is no.  Bunion splints are worn, at times, after surgery to maintain the alignment post operatively, but they will not correct a bunion deformity.  You cannot use a splint to re-align the bones and joint problems with a bunion, also called hallux abducto valgus.
