Is it the Predislocation Syndrome?

I have foot pain in the ball of the foot, pain is worse when I stand on my toes, it is worse barefoot or walking on hard surfaces, the second toe is lifting off the ground when I stand. I do not have history of trauma or injury. A friend told me it could be the Predislocation Syndrome, what is that and how do I treat it? Thanks!

    Thank you for your question.

    Predislocation syndrome is when the supporting soft tissue structure around the toes – in this case your second toe – are weak or torn. The instability to the soft tissue can happen from stresses we place on the foot, shoes we wear or biomechanical imbalances in the foot. What you can do to help stabilize the toe is tape it to your third toe. This will increase the stability of the joint and prevent further stress to the soft tissue.

    Sometimes orthotics can correct biomechanical imbalances in the foot which will reduce stress on the joint. Depending on the severity of it there are surgical corrections as well. To get a better understanding of the best treatment for you I recommend seeing a Podiatrist.

    Good luck!
