Re: What is the lateral sesamoid?

There are 2 sesamoid bone that sit in the flexor hallucis brevis tendon under the 1st metatarsal head. They function to increase the mechanical advantage of the tendon when the foot "toes off."

Seeing fliud is a frequent notation on MRI's. It needs to be corrolated with symptoms.

As far as switching doctors, as I have suggested to you previously, you need to be able to get your questions answered.

Full-length viscoelastic insoles incorporating areas of softer density in the heel and metatarsal region. Raised metatarsal pad aids in desired realignment of metatarsal heads.
