Bunion Pain while Running

Hi Dr. Blake,

      I started running last year and have since participated in a couple half marathons.  My bunions are quite painful during these long runs.  I tried doing shorter distances with the toe spacers, but found that I was "gripping" the spacers afraid they would move around in my sock.  Is there something else I can do to ease the pain?  They get swollen a few miles in and unfortunately, I'm more of a toe striker which doesn't help.
Thanks,
Marjorie

Marjorie, Here is an item you can buy at Footsmart that may help you. Rich


You can also get 1/4 inch adhesive felt from Moore Medical for proximal padding. Please see the blog. Rich
