Sesamoiditis or an inflammation of the sesamoid bones and surrounding structures that are under the first metatarsal head. The most common cause of the is a more rigid forefoot combined with sports activity that pivots a lot on the forefoot such as tennis. The pain of this is always under the sesamoid bones and tends not to radiate. The treatment is usually the use of padding or foot orthoses to off load the painful area
