Since Sesamoid injures are so rare, I thought it would be helpful to explain it to you.

A sesamoid is a bone embedded in a tendon. In the normal foot, the sesamoids are two jelly bean-sized bones located in the ball of the foot, beneath the big toe joint. The sesamoids act as a pulley for tendons, their primary function is to help raise and lower the big toe with each step (allowing you to push off your foot when you walk, run, dance, or jump). Sesamoid injuries can involve the bones, tendons, and/or surrounding tissue in the joint. They are common with activities requiring increased pressure on the ball of the foot, like running, basketball, football, golf, tennis and ballet. People with high arches or flexible feet are at risk for developing sesamoid problems. High-heeled shoes can also be a contributing factor.

Sesamoid injuries cause PAIN at the BALL of the foot – when you bend the foot while walking. Healing from a sesamoid injury can take YEARS, especially without the right training and lifestyle adjustments.

  1. Good morning
    I live in Ireland and have just come across your website. My daughter had a seismoid bone removed 20/2 and at the moment she is in post op recovery. She was a champion Irish dancer and in truth there is a question mark about her competing at this level again. Once the bandages are off etc she will return to physio. Your video looks very interesting. Other than following guidelines from physio and surgeon, and participating in programs like yours, is there anything else you would suggest please? She is very down with all of this.

    Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. Trish
