Bunions are a pain in the foot for nurses

The nursing community is turning to bunion splints to ease foot pain.

Bunions are a pain in the foot for nursesNurses often spend long shifts on their feet, running around hospitals and healthcare facilities to tend to patients who are in serious need of medical care. However, it's important that these professionals don't neglect their own health and let bunions become advanced. 

Bunion splints or orthotics have been shown to help prevent or correct bunions or hammer toe, helping individuals to avoid painful, costly bunion surgery. So, nurses around the country have turned to the devices in order to correct foot deformities without having to take time off from work.

The Bunion Aid from Alpha Orthotics has a special hinged design that allows users to walk while treating their foot condition, which may offer an ideal solution for nurses.

"This splint can be used as a conservative pain reduction treatment option that may help avoid or postpone the need for invasive surgery. Bunion Aid can help nurses as they actively move around hospital wards doing their important work pain-free," said Gaby Federal, CEO of Alpha Orthotics.
