A concise guide for treating bunions with splints – from the perspective of doctors and patients.
Tiburon, Ca – February 22, 2011 – Alpha Orthotics Corp., distributor of the award-winning hinged Bunion Aid® splint, released its latest patient education eBook, When the Foot Hits the Ground from Toe to Heel: Bunion Self-treatment Products. With warm weather around the corner and women wanting to wear sandals, it is time to treat unsightly or painful bunions. This complimentary eBook is a single source that provides an overview of non-invasive bunion treatments and bunion splints.
In the Bunion Busters feature on the Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz remarked that wearing bunion splints is an effective way to treat bunions. However, there is very little published information about the role of wearing bunion splints in relieving bunion pain and straightening the big toe,” says Marianne Mullins, author of When the Foot Hits the Ground from Toe to Heel and Director of Marketing at Alpha Orthotics Corp. “My objective for this guide is to inform the reader about how a splint must address the underlying causes of a bunion in order to be effective”.
Patients and doctors share opinions and comments in this concise format. Patients witness visible straightening of the big toe with daily use of bunion splints. Doctors recommend bunion splints to relieve bunion pain and to prevent further progression of a bunion. Although there are bunion pads, toe separators, and toe straighteners on the market that help bunions, these treatments do not treat the entire foot function. The hinged Bunion Aid splint is the most effective treatment for addressing the underlying causes of a bunion. Marcus Striebeck DC, DABCO, agrees, “Bunion Aid offers an advantage during the straightening process. That is why I have added Bunion Aid as part of my bunion management regiment.”
