The term sesamoiditis most commonly refers to inflammation and swelling of the soft tissues in the region of one or both sesamoid bones of the forefoot, with a localized tendinosis of the medial and lateral heads of the flexor hallucis brevis tendons in which they reside, as well as inflammation of the nearby metatarsophalangeal joint capsule.


The goal of this sesamoiditis program is to help physical therapists identify the etiology, presentation and treatments associated with sesamoiditis. After reading this module, you will be able to:
  • Describe the relevant anatomy of the first metatarsophalangeal region, and discuss the mechanisms of injury associated with sesamoiditis
  • Explain the etiology and risk factors associated with sesamoiditis
  • Discuss the most common treatment approaches for patients with sesamoiditis
