Sesamoiditis: Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment
Read More >
Sesamoiditis is a painful condition that affects the sesamoid bones located under the big toe. It is primarily an inflammatory condition where one or both of the sesamoid bones become irritated and painful as a result of increased activity levels, tight-fitting shoes or high heels. Sesamoiditis is a difficult condition to treat and for the acute phase, we have provided a home treatment plan.
After one to two weeks of symptoms then exercises are the best form of treatment for Sesamoiditis.
A mixture of stretching, balance and strengthening exercises is most effective for the treatment of Sesamoiditis. Stretching exercises can provide immediate pain relief while strengthening and balance exercises can help to address the causes of Sesamoiditis.
