I'm experincing acute pain to the outside and top of my right foot. I have gone
to a podiatrist where x-rays were taken. The doctor believes my ailment to be
CUBOID SYNDROME. After researching this on the net I've learned that some form
of munipulation may ease my pain. How would one perform the simple manipulation
to correct this?
Cuboid Syndrome is caused by the long peroneal tendon taking purchase on the cuboid bone as it turns the corner to travel under the foot. A sudden contraction of the Peroneus Longus can cause the bone to be rotated leaving you experiencing painful weightbearing. The manipulation is easy (if you know how) and can totally correct the problem, but you will need to have the manipulation done more than once most likely. In my experience, a Lo-dye taping will be necessary to maintain the arch of the foot after the manipulation, and you should also tape your foot in this fashion for several weeks after the procedure to ensure you do not sublux the cuboid again.
