    Do the correctors for bunion make any difference? Are the worth using?

    The Archies that you posted about in your other question will most likely help bunions are they have no pressure over the bunion!

    As for bunion correctors, I presume you mean contraptions like these?
    Yes, the evidence is that they can help improve the angle of the big toe by a few degrees after a month of wearing them at night.
    I also find them quite useful to help keep the joint mobile and flexible, so even if they do not "correct" the bunion, then they can be helpful at that, which is a good thing.

    Coincidentally, I recently write about them here and how people might all be the marketing of them.

    There is nothing wrong with using them as long as you have realistic expectations and do not fall for the marketing hype.

    I have been planning for ages to connect with a forum to describe what worked for me after buying every type of bunion corrector and toe separator on the market. My problem is not bunion pain, but pressure on my 2nd toe from the bunion angle, which has also caused 2nd toe hammer toe. What has worked (by serendipity) is The Original POLY-Fil which is a premium polyester fiber fill used for pillows, stuffed animals etc. Pinch a piece off and place between your toes, then put on your sock , don't think it will work without a sock. It is resilient and will not pack down or bunch, it's washable and hypoallergenic. Cost? Just about a life-time supply (20 0z. bag) since it's washable for about $7.00 at Hobby Lobby or other craft stores. So for anyone who has problems with toes rubbing on each other, give this a try. I hope that it helps some of you!
