Sesamoiditis

Posted by Mark Lewis on

Causes: Sesamoids are tiny bones surrounded by tendons that run from the ball of the foot to the big toe. Sesamoiditis is a condition characterized by an inflammation of the bones and tendons in this area. People with bony feet are especially prone to sesamoiditis, because fat pads generally protect the bones.

Symptoms: Sesamoiditis usually begins as an ache and gradually becomes more painful

Prevention & Care: Rest your feet. Sesamoiditis is commonly seen in runners or dancers. If you've increased your activity lev el lately and have developed sesamoiditis, you may have to rest your feet until the pain subsides.

If you are experiencing persistent pain, and symptoms that do not improve with treatment of a non-prescription product consult a podiatrist.  A foot doctor can correctly diagnose the condition and make appropriate recommendations.
