Capsulitis is a Painful Problem Usually Occurs Under the 2nd Toe Joint

Commonly, there is a deep soreness and an inability to walk barefooted or in shoes that lack cushioning. Most of the time, the 2nd toe is contracted (hammertoe), and a bunion deformity may exist.

Xrays provide valuable information about the bony structures that contribute to the entity.

Treatment usually revolves around redistribution of weight by the use of padding and/or orthotic devices.

Surgical intervention is indicated in refractory cases.
