Houston Astros relief pitcher Francisco Cordero was placed on the disabled list during the last half of the season, after suffering painful inflammation on his big right toe that has been diagnosed as sesamoiditis. Cordero was only recently acquired after a ten man trade with the Blue Jays. Cordero is currently on the 15 day disabled list, but is scheduled to visit a doctor soon, who will determine if surgery is necessary, though Astros manager Brad Mills is hopeful Cordero will recover with conservative treatment.

Foot and ankle injuries like sesamoiditis are painful and may potentially require surgery, as Cordero has learned. If you are experiencing sesamoiditis or any other foot pain, it is important to speak to a podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay to determine the appropriate treatment options for your condition.

Sesamoiditis

Sesamoiditis is a condition of the foot that affects the ball of the foot. It is more common in younger people than it is in older people. It can also occur with people who have begun a new exercise program, since their bodies are adjusting to the new physical regimen. Pain may also be caused by the inflammation of tendons surrounding the bones. It is important to seek treatment in its early stages because if you ignore the pain, this condition can lead to more serious problems such as severe irritation and bone fractures.

Causes of Sesamoiditis

· Sudden increase in activity
· Increase in physically strenuous movement without a proper warm up or build up
· Foot structure: those who have smaller, bonier feet or those with a high arch may be more susceptible

Treatment for sesamoiditis is non-invasive and simple. Doctors may recommend a strict rest period where the patient forgoes most physical activity. This will help give the patient time to heal their feet through limited activity. For serious cases, it is best to speak with your doctor to determine a treatment option that will help your specific needs.
