Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham plans to rid herself of bunions, a painful foot condition, using a do-it-yourself treatment
Victoria Beckham plans to rid herself of bunions using a do-it-yourself treatment.
The former Spice Girl has been plagued by the unsightly swellings on her feet throughout her adult life as a result of her penchant for high heels, but now believes she has found a cure.
A source said: "Victoria has tracked down a device that you wear at night. It's like a foot splint and moves the toe joint slowly back into place while you sleep.
"She hates the look of the big ugly lumps, as well as the pain."
Image-conscious Victoria is desperate to cure the painful condition on her own otherwise she faces a painful operation, which would mean she would have to stop wearing her favourite shoes.
The source added to Closer magazine: "She really wants to avoid surgery as it'd mean she'd be out of heels for months. The thought of wearing flats during that time terrifies her."
Victoria has even taken to wearing shoes a size too big in order to give her ravaged feet more room, and is obsessed with getting her toes in top condition in time for summer.
The source revealed: "She's always checking out other celeb's feet and can't wait to wear strappy heels again."
