Capsulitis 2017-01-05T14:18:53+00:00

Capsulitis

Capsulitis is an inflammation of the soft tissue and ligaments surrounding a joint in the foot. It is usually caused by trauma or abnormal structural functioning, which overstretches the ligament that attaches one of the toe bones to a metatarsal bone. Wearing high heels or other poorly fitting footwear and repetitive activities that bend the toes, such as ladder climbing, are also known causes.

Pain in the forefront of the foot is the most common symptom of capsulitis. It is often misdiagnosed as Morton’s neuroma because of similar symptoms.

Non invasive treatments are used to resolve capsulitis, including:

  • Wearing low-heeled shoes with firm soles that fit properly.
  • Decreasing or temporarily discontinuing the activity responsible for the onset of the inflammation.
  • A short course of oral anti-inflammatory medication. Note: Please consult your chiropodist/podiatrist before taking any medications.
  • Cortisone injections.
