A bunion walking boot is a type of medical device that is worn around the foot to help alleviate pain and discomfort caused by bunions. It is a type of orthopedic boot that provides support and protection to the foot, ankle and leg. They typically consist of a padded splint that is placed over the bunion, and an adjustable band that wraps around the foot to hold the splint in place. The boot also provides an elevated heel to help redistribute pressure on the bunion and improve alignment of the toes. It also has a built-in sole that can be adjusted to provide additional arch support. They are usually worn during the day and can be used for activities such as walking and standing. It's important to consult a doctor or a physical therapist before using a bunion walking boot or any other kind of supportive device, as it may be prescribed for specific conditions or for use for a certain amount of time.
