Yes. There are many people that have a bunion that do not need surgery. Sometimes, if we can diagnose the problem in the early stages and the bunion is not too large, we can use padding, injections, laser therapy, and orthotics to alleviate the pain. Often time’s people are wearing shoes that are too short causing increased pressure on the bunion and are thus aggravating the bunion as well. This can cause redness, swelling and pain.
