Kohler’s Disease


Kohler’s disease is a rare condition that causes the bones in the arch of the foot to become inflamed. Avascular necrosis is also sometimes incorporated with Kohler’s disease, leading to a lack of blood supply to the bones, leading to its breakdown and hardening. Thus, pain and swelling will occur.

  • Rest the affected foot
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs can be taken to reduce pain and inflammation
  • Seek help from a podiatrist

What kind of help can I get?

  • Medical insoles can be prescribed
  • A cam walker can be used
