Capsulities

Capsulities is an inflammation of the ligament on the bottom of the foot. It is usually caused by trauma or abnormal structural functioning, which over stretches the ligament that attaches one of the toe bones to a medtatarsal 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. Capsulitis is often misdiagnosed as Morton's neuroma because of similar symptoms.

Noninvasive treatment 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 with your physician before taking any medications.
  • Cortisone injections.
