Accessory Navicular (Os Naviculare)
Read More >
An accessory Navicular is an extra bone on the foot’s arch, and most people who have this extra bone don’t even know they have it. However, in a minority of cases, an accessory Navicular can become painful when walking and standing. Poor foot mechanics and poor control of the muscles of the foot and ankle can lead to this irritation known as Accessory Navicular Syndrome. A graded exercise programme is one of the most effective treatment methods for Accessory Navicular Syndrome. It is important to remember that one size does not fit all. Still, we have created a programme that addresses the most common muscular imbalances in our clinics in patients with Accessory Navicular Syndrome.
A mixture of stretching, strengthening and balance exercises are best for Accessory Navicular Syndrome, which we have provided below. You do not need to follow this programme rigidly. It should be carried out 3 times weekly, and you should consult your physician before commencing it.
