Bunion & Soft Tissue Release

Soft Tissue Release is touted to reapproximate the Big Toe of those presenting with a Bunion Deformity.

Bunion soft tissue release involves pulling out on the big toe, “to reverse the bunion”, while a deep pressure is applied between the first and second metatarsal bones simultaneously.

According to one practitioner, “often times there will be a bump or a lump”.

If a bump or lump is identified, a gentle pressure is applied.

Next, the big toe is pulled down and into plantar flexion for an additional stretch.

-Here’s the Problem with Soft Tissue Release for Bunion-

Soft tissue release does NOT address the cause & therefore has ZERO long term potential for correction.

In fact, you’ll continue to worsen!

Since this technique does not improve how your feet absorb the unrelenting stress of gravity and your body weight WHILE UPRIGHT, this technique is considered purely palliative in nature.

Soft tissue release has great potential for temporary relief and should be pursued generally once all attempts to optimize how the feet handle gravity have been exhausted.
