A non-surgical remedy for bunions (Hallux Valgus) invented in Japan is now available worldwide.

As many as one in three people are said to have hallux valgus (bunions), with the majority of sufferers being women. A non‐surgical remedy, Bochikun, which has been widely accepted overseas, is now available online.

Japanese Judo Therapist and Bonesetter, Mr Sakamoto, an Orthopedic veteran of more than 35 years, developed the remedy out of his experience of helping tens of thousands of sufferers through his clinic in Tsuyama. “The device has revolutionized the treatment of bunions,” he claims.

The imperative to correct the alignment of the feet to give patients relief from the extreme pain misalignment causes is very well established in Orthopedics, where there are more than 100 different surgical procedures to treat the condition. Misalignment burdens the neck, waist, hips, knees and ankles. The abductor hallucis “abducts” the big toe, moving it away from the body. Bochikun is designed to enable the abductor hallucis to re‐strengthen and thereby restore the toes back to their intended positions.

“Bochikun has the potential to halt the development of the condition, and shift the treatment of all but the most extreme cases away from surgical intervention and into simple, affordable, over the e‐counter self management,” claims Mr Sakamoto.

While surgery will no doubt remain the last resort for some cases, the moderately priced Bochikun has given patients a non‐surgical option to get sustained relief from what is frequently debilitating pain. It’s also given them back their mobility and sports performance. “Best results are achieved by wearing Bochikun every day consistently," says Mr Sakamoto.

“Ours is not the first device on the market, but it's a significant improvement over earlier models, many of which were made with rigid materials to give them the necessary strength, but our patients report they made wearing normal footwear impossible,” claims Mr Sakamoto.

“Now patients need no special footwear or to cut holes into their favorite shoes, because Bochikun was designed to be worn under regular footwear. “Bochikun is a flexible textile solution, worn against the skin of the foot. It’s easily adjusted to the individual’s foot, irrespective of size or degree of deformity. Patients have said it is simple to fit even when their feet change shape on a day‐to‐day basis. “It’s comfortable to wear, affordable, and is an easy choice compared to expensive custom Orthotics or surgery.”

For people who experiencing agonizing pain in their feet, or have associated pain radiating to other parts of their body, it could be worth checking out the list of indications on, from where the device may also be ordered.
