When there is not sufficient blood supply to the bone the normal weight-bearing stress can cause pain, therefore reducing the stress on the affected area of the foot is crucial. This can be achieved by adjusting the footwear and insoles but also by physiotherapy to work on certain muscles to reduce the weight bearing stress on the affected area of the foot. In case the bone settles but does not regain its normal shape the adjacent joints might become arthritic resulting in further pain. If conservative treatment fails to provide sufficient pain relief an operation will become a good option. Fusing the arthritic bone and joint to the neighbouring bone will eliminate the pain and allow pain-free mobilisation of the foot.
