Treatment Of Sesamoiditis In Dublin, Ireland

Sesamoiditis is a chronic condition that can cause pain in the foot. It is caused by inflammation or irritation of the sesamoid bones which are two small bones located beneath the big toe joint.

Sesamoid bones get their from their shape which resembles a sesame seed. We have two sesamoid bones under our big toe and our knee-cap or patella is also a sesamoid bone. The function of sesamoid bones is to allow force through a joint, making a certain movement, like bending the knee, easier on the muscles.

If you are suffering from sesamoiditis, you may find that your symptoms get worse when you walk or run.

This can be very frustrating and make it difficult to participate in your normal activities, making walking painful. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help relieve your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

What Is The Cause Of Sesamoiditis? Toe Pain

There are several potential causes of sesamoiditis, including:

  • Trauma or injury to the foot. This can include anything from a stubbed toe to a more serious fracture.
  • Overuse or repetitive stress on the sesamoid bones, often seen in athletes or people who do a lot of walking or running.
  • Arthritis, which is inflammation of the joint surfaces.
  • Bursitis, which is inflammation of the fluid-filled sac that surrounds and cushions the sesamoid bones.

How Is Sesamoiditis Diagnosed?

Your physical therapist will ask about your symptoms and medical history. They will also perform a physical examination of your foot, looking for any areas that are tender or swollen.

They may also order an X-ray to look for sesamoid fractures and any other injuries that may be present, but this is very unlikely and rarely necessary unless there have been a trauma.

Shockwave therapy is highly effective for reducing pain and dysfunction caused by chronic conditions. The shockwaves are applied directly to sesamoid area, and this helps to promote healing in the damaged tissues. Each session is very quick, and we usually recommend 4-6 sessions one week apart.
