What is a Bunion?

Flip flops can reduce the pain caused by bunions. This is true because many of us have hardwood and tile throughout our homes. These hard services can injure the big toe joint. Wearing flip-flops around the house can help ease the pain caused by bunions. Since many of us have hardwood and tile floors, our big toes are under constant assault. Flip flops can very well reduce the pain caused by bunions. This is because many of us wear sandals throughout the year. While sandals do not injure the big toe joint, they come to be a better alternative than wearing regular shoes. When a bunion forms, the big toe's joint shifts inward and increasingly makes contact with the second toe. It can become painful, especially when wearing shoes that do not fit properly. A bunion on the big toe side of the foot is called hallux abducto valgus (HAV), while one on the smaller side of the foot is called hallux valgus (HV). HAV is less common than HV. Flip flops and slippers can reduce pain from bunions. This is important, considering that many of us have hardwood and tile throughout our homes. This hard flooring can injure the big toe joint. 


The many motion ranges in the foot when walking or running can cause bunion pain by pressing on the bony bump of the big toe joint. These motions force the internal bump of the big toe to press against the side edge of the shoe, starting inflammation and pain. A tight or narrow toe box can worsen this problem. Compression within the big toe joint is also a factor in the cause of bunion pain.

The Bunions Saver Flip Flop relieves your agonizing bunions. Eliminates painful, bunion induced pressure on the big toe, and prevents compression within the big toe joint. The Bunions Saver Flip Flop is the only treatment of bunion pain that prescribes exactly how your feet should be positioned to alleviate pain, and provides a supportive but flexible platform for weight bearing. The first step to treating bunion pain is to stop wearing shoes that put pressure on the bump. Midsoles that are too stiff or heels that are too high can actually increase the stress on the joint.

To ease the pressure on the bunion, put a padding under your foot. So can flip-flops or any flexible flat footwear. The compression within toe-joint increases with time and walking distance, you should avoid walking barefooted and wear appropriate shoes.

Bunions are caused by an improper fit between the big toe joint and the second, third, and fourth toes. While an overabundance of pronation may be present in many cases of bunions, other causes include errant foot muscles, heredity, genetics, and an increase in hormones. Slippers that create a custom fit are called orthotics. These are an excellent way to help reduce bunion pain. When worn at night, bunny slippers help to realign the foot and redistribute the forces within the big toe joint. Orthotic sandals can be purchased at most local drug stores or shoe stores. Simply size the sandals to fit you and wear them each night before bedtime. One of the ways to accomplish this goal is to provide appropriate footwear. When it comes to picking out the perfect pair of shoes, there are many different factors to consider. However, recent anatomical studies regarding the causes of bunions indicate that one of the most important considerations may be the height of the shoe or slipper sole.

Flip-flops, or slippers, can help reduce pressure in the big toe joint because their floppy nature allows for a wider range of motion in the joint. In addition to reducing the amount of motion in the joint, flip-flops often allow for a better alignment of your foot to prevent your toes from continually rubbing against the back of your shoe. Flip-flops are the ultimate summer accessory, providing a casual yet on-trend look.

The goal in treating bunions is to reduce the forces within the big toe joint that lead to their formation and cause pain. Slippers have been shown to be helpful in reducing these forces, but this evidence does not suggest that slippers themselves prevent bunions from forming or growth from continuing once a bunion has formed.

The big toe joint of the affected foot may become deformed (bunions), swollen and very painful. Many doctors recommend wearing comfortable footwear that does not aggravate your condition. Your doctor may use physical therapies to lessen the pain associated with bunions. Your physician may suggest that you try wearing a soft, padded shoe to relieve pressure and pain. Wearing a soft, loose sock over the bunion may also help. Alternate pressure pad is the best available treatment for bunion deformity. Bunions are painful because they are caused by excessive or repetitive forces on the bones of the foot. Treatment should be about strengthening this joint and reducing force on the bunion. Slippers should not be worn for this condition. However, once other factors have been addressed, including bunion deformity reduction surgery, then slippers may help to remove pressure off of other areas that play a role in bunion pain.  

Flip flops are sandals to be worn outside the house. However, they can lead to bunions. By wearing proper clothing and either flexible or reinforced orthotics, the stresses at the first metatarsal-phalangeal joint can be reduced. In the long run, flip-flops will inevitably cause damage to your feet. By wearing a proper shoe and using a custom orthotic or a prefabricated orthotic, the forces at the 1st metatarsal-phalangeal joint can be decreased.

Wearing flip flops might seem convenient, but wearing them can cause bunions to form on your toes. To prevent this, wear proper shoes and either prefabricated or custom orthotics. When you do this, the joint will align better and you won’t have to worry about your foot getting deformed.

Flip-flops are a simple and convenient way to keep your feet comfortable, but they can actually cause serious damage to your feet. Wearing proper footwear – both prefabricated and custom – not only prevents bunions from forming but also works to heal them. The object, therefore, of this present invention is to provide a device which can be applied to the foot of the wearer to relieve the stresses and strains placed on the foot by flip-flops or other types of footwear.

Flip-flops, while comfortable, should only be worn when you're cautious about where you're going to put your feet. Even then, proper shoes and either prefabricated or custom orthotics are critical in reducing these forces. Feet naturally swell as we walk, and our foot arches often become sore as the day wears on. We like our flip flops for their comfortable fit and freedom of movement, but as you spend more time on your feet, that spacey feeling can turn into a painful one. So, choose shoes that offer adequate arch support if you plan to stand or walk for long periods of time. Choose a shoe with a counter or a wedge-shaped platform under the ball of the foot if you have a high instep. If you have a rigid forefoot, seek shoes with extra cushioning to absorb shock at heel strike. Shoes designed specifically for the foot arches tend to be more supportive and comfortable. The following shoe features include: cushioned insoles and leather outsoles, wedge-shaped platforms under the ball of the foot, and a firm heel counter.
