Forefoot Pain (Sesamoiditis)

Request an Appointment with an Orlando Health Physician

Treatment will be focused on eliminating your pain and helping you regain mobility for daily activities, such as exercise and sports. High-impact sports and repetitive stress on the forefoot can trigger pain, which typically responds to conservative treatment but may require additional measures.


Our orthopedic specialists and physical therapists may fit you for custom-designed arch supports and cushions in your shoes to reduce pressure on your foot. We may recommend exercises, stretches, massage and acupuncture to relieve your symptoms. If your pain persists, depending on your condition and your sports activities, we may consider orthopedic surgery to repair tendons or ligaments and realign bones.
