Os Trigonum Syndrome


Os Trigonum Syndrome is the presence of an extra bone known as “Os Trigonum”. This extra bone is present on one or both feet at birth. With the presence of this extra bone, tissue can get trapped between it and other bones of the foot, causing pain, stiffness and lower plantar flexion around the ankle joints.

How did this happen?

  • Seek help from a podiatrist

What kind of help can I get?

  • A podiatrist can advise on proper footwear and exercises to treat symptoms
  • A cam walker can be used
  • Low-Level Laser Therapy can be used to reduce pain and inflammation
  • Surgery might be needed if symptoms continue after conservative treatment

How long till it recovers?

  • It can take up to 6 - 8 weeks to see improvements
