Re: Broken Sesamoid Bone

Many tiomes the sesamoid will develop into an asymptomatic non-union. As far as surgery, there are different opinions regarding this and it depends on which sesamoid is broken.

Discuss your concern with the orthotics with your doctor. Perhaps they can be adjusted or modified or remade.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
