Re: cuboid syndrome

Yes it is possible, but I would need to see your foot, your orthotics and both running and biking shoes to be sure. Having said all that, I must confess manipulating a cuboid can be frustrating. Sometimes, if the patient comes in soon after the bone goes out, it is much easier to pop back in. Other times I can budge it for anything. This is the technique I use. It is not easy to do on yourself.

A. Cuboid whip
1. Purpose to move the cuboid superiorly
a. tends to reduce excessive supination
b. reduces friction between cuboid and peroneus longus in supinated foot.
2. Technique
a. grasp cuboid with thumbs below cuboid
b. with quick downward whipping motion push cuboid dorsally.

Good luck
