Sesamoiditis is an inflammatory condition of the sesamoid bones and surrounding tissue. It causes pain and discomfort in the ball of the foot behind the big toe. Sesamoiditis normally progresses over a long period of time as a result of stress on the foot (i.e. from footwear like high heels). However, it can also be a result of sudden trauma.
Given that Sesamoiditis is caused by Inflammation, Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a great way to help heal this difficult to treat condition. LILT helps to resolve the inflammation and increase the speed of healing.
LaserHealth® Solutions therapists can also help you determine what caused the Sesamoiditis so that you can make any appropriate changes.
The number of treatments needed to correct Sesamoiditis varies. The average number of treatments required is ten. Much depends on the severity and duration of symptoms.
