Sesamoiditis is a type of bone inflammation of the foot that causes pain.

The sesamoids are bones in your foot where tendons connect to help bend your big toe.

Sesamoiditis occurs when the sesamoids are injured or inflamed, often after particular activities like participating in ballet or playing catcher in baseball.

Resting your feet, using heat or ice, taking pain relievers, or trying a compression bandage may be initial treatments for this condition.

You may also need other treatments as guided by your doctor.
