Sesamoiditis Treatment in New Jersey
Symptoms typically begin with a mild ache in the ball of the foot beneath the big toe. As the aggravating activity is continued, pain increases and can become intense. In addition, bruising and swelling may occur and the affected toe may be painful when moved.
- Treatment options include rest, anti-inflammatory medications, special shoes or pads, taping the big toe and, in some cases, a leg brace.
Custom-molded orthotics is an essential part of the care for foot and ankle problems. Many of these problems are caused by poor foot position or alignment and can be dramatically improved with the use of custom orthotics. The purpose of orthotics is to hold the foot in a certain position while controlling the amount of motion the joints go through in a normal walk. Every foot has a unique arch and foot type. The making of orthotics is a blend of art and technology.
