Are You Suffering From Arch Pain?

Find out if you have accessory navicular syndrome in Bozeman or Livingston, MT

Accessory navicular syndrome is an extra bone or piece of cartilage located on the inner side of your foot just above the arch. It can result from trauma, chronic irritation from shoes or excessive activity. If you’re flat footed, you may be at risk for accessory navicular syndrome.

Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic can diagnose accessory navicular syndrome. If you have accessory navicular syndrome, your symptoms may include:

  • Visible bony prominence
  • Redness or swelling
  • Pain in your arch

Call Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic today for a diagnosis. Your surgeon will examine your foot, press for discomfort or perform X-rays to find out if you have accessory navicular syndrome.

Does accessory navicular syndrome require surgery?

If you’re diagnosed with accessory navicular syndrome, your doctor may recommend immobilization treatment or anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce swelling. If standard treatments don’t work, you may need surgery to remove the accessory bone, reshape the area and repair the tendon.
