Orthotics can help to control abnormal motion which may be contributing to the development of the bunionette. The long bone on the outside of the foot, the 5th metatarsal, moves away from the center line of the body and the 5th toe moves towards the other toes, as seen in the image to the left.
Use ice for 5 minutes and then heat for 5 minutes – alternate for 30 minutes, twice a day.

This movement results in a structural change and causes a bump to form on the outside of the foot. Bunions and bunionettes develop as a result of abnormal mechanics and abnormal tendon pull in the foot and generally take a few years to form. The type of pain associated with a bunionette is a deep, dull, achy pain which is worse with shoes and walking.
