Yoga: Yoga really is a total body workout and the feet are not to be forgotten. Downward dog not only strengthens your calf muscles, but also the muscles in your feet (be sure to spread your toes). You can also try giving yourself a “yoga handshake” by siting down and alternating your fingers in between each toes. Roll the foot around and move it up and down. This creates space between the toes and helps them increase flexibility.
These exercises will not get rid of your bunions, but if your discomfort is minimal these exercises may keep you surgery free.
