What is Sesamoiditis?

Sesamoids are small bones found in your muscles and tendons. They act as a pulley system for our bones and are the only bones in our body that aren’t attached to another bone. Sesamoiditis is the swelling and inflammation of these sesamoid bones under the first joint of the big toe. You wouldn’t think that this tiny jellybean-sized bone would cause so much discomfort, but it plays a crucial role in the way that we walk.

To cause the least amount of pain while suffering from sesamoiditis you need to find the right pair of shoes. Proper footwear is the biggest treatment option for people who suffer from sesamoiditis. You should also try resting, Icing the area, and physical therapy if necessary.

When looking for a shoe, here are 3 things you should look out for:

  1. Wide Toes Boxes
  2. No Heel to Toe Drop
  3. No Toe Spring
