Re: daughters bump on outside of her foot

Unfortunately, since I can't see the area in question, it is difficult for me to guess. Possibly there is an accessory bone at the base of the 5th metatarsal which may still be cartilaginous. This is called an os vesalianum. I would recommend a MRI if there is pain involved.

Sorry I can't give you more help.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
