Re: sesamoid screw

While I understand it in principle, I have not done this nor do I have any references to papers about this procedure. I would assume you would need to be non-weight bearing afterward. I wonder how the screw is inserted? Does any part of it interfere with the articulation at the metatarsal head?

You might consider asking the doctor for more information, studies, how successful is this method?

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.
