Knitido Dr. Foot Bunion toe socks mid-calf act preventively against Bunion and support the physical self-healing process
Knitido Dr. Foot Bunion toe socks - your advantages
- Toe socks relieve the toe area from tension.
- The toes gain mobility - this in turn relieves the lateral leg muscles and provides relaxation.
- A compression band on the forefoot supports the weakened muscles and ligaments responsible for the Bunion and leads to joint relief.
How do Knitido Dr. Foot Bunion toe socks work
Our product follows two approaches.
1. separation of the toes
Separating the toes takes the tension out of the toe arch. This allows the toes to move separately again.
This stimulates the sensory system, the toes move more, can flex and strengthen and are integrated back into the walking process.
The lateral musculature can recover from the permanent strain. As a result, the muscles and tendons return to their natural starting position.
At the same time, you should become active against your Bunion with appropriate exercises - your physiotherapist, chiropractor or podiatrist will be happy to assist you.
2. compression on the joint affected by the Bunion
Thanks to a compression band, our toe socks contract the foot's medial bone, the joint affected by the Bunion . The light but steady pressure applied to the bone causes a slight splay between the foot and the big toe, about 1° outward. Depending on the severity of the hallux, this can lead to immediate relief and causes further relief of the lateral muscles.
Unlike orthotics, for example, which perform a corrective alignment of the foot by splinting, Knitido takes the opposite approach: we free the toe area from tension caused by baggy socks. In this way, our socks open up scope for the self-healing process: the toes return to their natural position, move more and can strengthen.
What is Bunion and how is it created?
Bunion has many possible causes and manifestations: Wrong footwear, wrong socks, too little foot movement, but also an inherited weakness of the connective tissue can be the reason.
It often develops sluggishly, over years, and appears visibly and often noticeably as a thickened big toe joint. This thickening causes the big toe to move inwards. Normally, lateral muscles and tendons hold it in position so that it stands straight forward in a radial shape - like a fan.
If these muscles and tendons lose their function, the toe slowly bends inwards and the bunion appears, especially in contact with shoes, but often also when running.
No matter what the underlying causes are, Bunion most often occurs due to loss of function of the muscles and tendons that are supposed to hold the toes in place.
