Capsulitis Of The Second Toe Splint

Ligaments surrounding the joint at the base of the second toe form a capsule, which helps the joint to function properly. Capsulitis is a condition in which these ligaments have become inflamed. Although capsulitis can also occur in the joints of the third or fourth toes, it most commonly affects the second toe.
The most common MTP joint capsule to develop capsulitis is the one that connects the second metatarsal bone with the second set of phalanges. Problems with this capsule, especially inflammation, are particularly common because of the excessive pressure placed on this joint during weight-bearing activities.
So I went to the foot doc. and was told I have capsulitis.. he showed me this very simple tape job that lifted the 2nd toe I think to prevent stress .
When the ligaments supporting your toe joint get stresses, capsulitis pain is the common result. Family Foot and Ankle Center of Cincinnati explains.. We may also show you how to splint your toe, or tape it to its neighbor, in order to keep it .
