Sesamoiditis

Sesamoiditis is an inflammation in the sesamoid bones in the big toe, usually connected to heavy activity such as running, jumping from a great height, ballet, or other pursuits.

Great Lakes Foot & Ankle Centers can help reduce the inflammation, which will lessen the pain, and can direct you to long-term therapies that will treat the causes.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis entails a review of your personal history and a thorough examination. X-rays may be needed to tell the difference between sesamoiditis and a sesamoid fracture.

Treatment

Initial treatments include rest, ice, medications, and physical therapy.
