Feb. 22, Tiburon, Calif. – Alpha Orthotics Corp., distributor of the award-winning hinged Bunion Aid® splint, released its latest patient education e-Book, When the Foot Hits the Ground from Toe to Heel: Bunion Self-treatment Products.

Bunions can be painful and also compromise gait, which leads to other musculoskeletal issues. While targeting these problems through manual therapy, RMTs are also well positioned to discuss options for additional bunion treatment with their patients.

The book offers a platform for educating patients on how to deal with painful (and unsightly) bunions. This complimentary e-Book is a single source that provides an overview of non-invasive bunion treatments and bunion splints.

“There is very little published information about the role of wearing bunion splints in relieving bunion pain and straightening the big toe,” says Marianne Mullins, author of When the Foot Hits the Ground from Toe to Heel and Director of Marketing at Alpha Orthotics Corp. “My objective for this guide is to inform the reader about how a splint must address the underlying causes of a bunion in order to be effective”.

In the book, patients and doctors share opinions and comments in a concise format. Patients witness visible straightening of the big toe with daily use of bunion splints. Doctors recommend bunion splints to relieve bunion pain and to prevent further progression of a bunion. Although there are bunion pads, toe separators, and toe straighteners on the market that help bunions, these treatments do not treat the entire foot function. The hinged Bunion Aid splint is the most effective treatment for addressing the underlying causes of a bunion.

Marcus Striebeck DC, DABCO, agrees, “Bunion Aid offers an advantage during the straightening process. That is why I have added Bunion Aid as part of my bunion management regimen.”
