sesamoiditis June 30, 2020 8:27 pm

Sesamoiditis: This is a painful condition located under the big toe area of the ball of the foot. Two “sesamoid” bones can become inflamed and sore from the constant pounding of your foot. It is usually seen with a “plantarflexed first metatarsal bone.” A customized orthotic offloading pad, called a dancer’s pad, will shield these bones from trauma and permit them to heal.
