How to manage pain due to extra bone growth in my foot?
Q: I have developed pain in my left foot on the inner side base joint of foot. The x-ray report says there is an extra bone growth or formation at the joint. What should I do to cure this problem? What is the expected remedial action for this? What is the reason behind this formation of extra bone mass?
A:This problem can happen without any definite reason and is more troublesome if you have flat feet. As far as treatment is concerned, you should do hot fomentation and local application of pain relieving gel / voveron gel. In addition, if you have flat feet you must use arch support.
