Cuboid Syndrome Images:
The following is our cuboid syndrome images.
Outside of the Foot Pain Picture Gallery:
- Fifth toe pain usually has nothing wrong with the bone unless it has recently been broken. The pain usually results from pressure against the front of the shoe, causing a callus or ingrown toenail.
- The fifth toe joint can cause a Tailor’s bunion to occur. This can also result in nerve pain and arthritis of the fifth toe joint.
- The bone connecting to the fifth toe is called the fifth metatarsal. It is possible to develop a stress fracture or “Jones” fracture.
- It is also possible to have pain and tendons and nerves outside the ankle from pressure against the outside of the shoe.
- The peroneal tendons can also be causing pain. This means the peroneus brevis tendon and the peroneus longus tendon.
- Cuboid syndrome can also cause pain at the back and outside of the foot.

Cuboid syndrome symptoms:
- The cuboid syndrome symptoms include:
- A deep dull ache to the outside middle of the foot.
- Pain that gets worse with walking or jogging.
- It feels like the bone needs to crack or pop free but is unable to do so.
- It could potentially lead to numbness, burning, and tingling.
- It could lead to aching and possibly popping.
What is Cuboid Syndrome?
🦶What is Cuboid Syndrome?🦶
- This may be Cuboid syndrome! 5% of runners and 40% of ankle sprains are reported to have this problem.
- What it cuboid syndrome? Cuboid syndrome is the dorsal or plantar subluxation of your cuboid bone.
- This is another way of saying you have a dislocated cuboid bone.
- It is unlikely that the cuboid bone is broken, but a cuboid or ankle ligament sprain has more likely occurred.
- It is also more common in flat feet and over-pronated runners.
Cuboid Bone Anatomy:
- This is a small bone in the outside of the foot.
- It is shown in the pictures below.
Cuboid Syndrome Test:
Cuboid syndrome test:
- If you have to find the cuboid bone from both above and the bottom, a cuboid syndrome test is to palpate it at the bottom and the top of the foot.
- This should hurt and feel different on the affected foot than the other.
- It will also likely lead to decreased ankle flexibility.
Cuboid Syndrome Pain location:
- The cuboid syndrome pain location is on the outside middle of your foot.
- The heel bone is called the calcaneus, and the bump on the middle outside of your foot is called the fifth metatarsal.
- The cuboid bone is between the fifth metatarsal bump and the heel bone called the calcaneus.
Cuboid Syndrome Treatment:
- In the above cuboid syndrome video, we will show you how to perform cuboid syndrome treatment quickly.
- The video will also go over cuboid syndrome manipulation.
- Pain on the outside of your foot or the lateral foot pain may be your cuboid bone.
- We go over cuboid subluxation, cuboid syndrome tests.
- So don’t stress about your broken or dislocated cuboid. This guide will help you get better!
- We go over two maneuvers called the cuboid whip and the cuboid squeeze maneuvers in the above video.
- This can result in pretty quick improvement of your cuboid symptoms.
- So stop stressing about your cuboid bone pain. We’ve got you covered!
Cuboid Syndrome Exercises:
In the above video, we spend time showing and going over cuboid syndrome exercises.
We believe that cuboid syndrome exercises are some of the best ways to fix cuboid pain and cuboid syndrome pain!
If the cuboid syndrome exercises don’t get you better, see the best podiatrists in Michigan!
Cuboid syndrome recovery time:
- The cuboid syndrome recovery time can be nearly instantaneous.
- With the proper manipulation and treatment by a podiatrist, the cuboid bone could be relocated back into the proper position.
- On the other hand, if it was popped out for a long time and there is associated damage, the healing time can be a little longer.
- Generally, if the bone is relocated in the underlying causes are corrected, the foot should be better within a few weeks.
Cuboid syndrome taping:
- We believe cuboid syndrome taping is not as effective as other types of taping.
- In her other videos, we show taping for bunions, hammertoes, and plantar fascia.
- Unfortunately, for the cuboid syndrome, we found it is not all that effective thus, we do not recommend using cuboid syndrome taping.
- We usually go over cuboid syndrome manipulation with our patients and then use good cuboid syndrome orthotics and the best cuboid syndrome shoes to keep the foot in the proper position.
Cuboid syndrome bandage:
- As mentioned for our cuboid syndrome taping guide above, we believe that there are better options than a cuboid syndrome bandage.
- A cuboid syndrome bandage is a lot of work, and with sweat, it tends to come loose.
- In our opinion, the cuboid syndrome bandage is not very effective in holding the bone in place as a cuboid syndrome brace, as a cuboid syndrome orthotic, or as a good cuboid syndrome shoe.
KT tape for cuboid syndrome:
- KT tape for cuboid syndrome can be very effective.
- But as we mentioned above, we prefer to focus on cuboid syndrome manipulation to get the cuboid bone back in a position.
- We then believe in using good cuboid syndrome orthotics and good cuboid syndrome shoes.
Cuboid syndrome healing time:
- The cuboid syndrome healing time could be very quick with the proper cuboid syndrome manipulation.
- We estimate that it can take up to 4-6 weeks for the soreness to go away after cuboid syndrome manipulation in the more painful cases.
- The bone could pop back into place and lead to rapid healing.
Best Cuboid Syndrome Products:
- There are usually two phases to cuboid syndrome pain treatment.
- The two phases of treatment include controlling the acute inflammation and correcting the biomechanics, which led to the problem in the first place.
- If the tendons and ligaments are inflamed, they are almost frozen in place and cannot function properly.
- Once the inflammation is decreased, we need to correct the biomechanical causes to ensure that they can never become overworked and inflamed again!
- This doesn’t matter whether it’s plantar fasciitis, plantar fibroma, the sore bottom of the foot, or even Achilles tendon pain. Treatment is all roughly very similar.
Removing The Stress:
- The key is to prevent future pain.
- If you can get rid of the pain and swelling, this will let you start walking normally.
- If you can walk normally, the vast majority of your pain should gradually start to go away.
- The best way to ensure that your plantar fascia, foot, and ankle ligaments are not overworked is to support them.
- The best way to support them is to use great orthotics and great shoes.
- Some people may also need to rely on supportive ankle braces and other supportive modalities.
Best Shoes for Cuboid Syndrome:
The following are our best shoes for cuboid syndrome pain.
- Getting a great supportive pair of shoes will ensure that the pressure is removed from the heel and plantar fascia region.
- This is especially important if you have plantar fasciitis, heel spur pain, or Achilles tendonitis.
- Consider shoes combined with a good supportive orthotic for the best pain relief!
- The following link will show you what our favorites are.
Cuboid Syndrome Brace:
- The following braces have worked really well for us as a cuboid syndrome brace.
- We initially look at performing good cuboid syndrome exercises to loosen up the calf muscle, the hamstring, and the surrounding muscles and ligaments.
- But if it keeps repetitively popping loose, great shoes and great orthotics for cuboid syndrome might be the best first step. Secondly, we then look at getting a good cuboid syndrome brace.
- These are some of our favorite cuboid syndrome braces.
Best Orthotics Cuboid Syndrome:
- These are our recommended best orthotics for the cuboid syndrome.
- There are different types of different shoes.
- Women’s shoes usually need a less bulky orthotic but allow for less correction.
- A full-length orthotic requires a running shoe, boot, or comfortable walking/dress shoe.
- We recommend doing everything you can to get a good supportive shoe that can fit a full-length orthotic.
- This is the best way to maximize your orthotics for great results.
Best Full-Length Orthotics:
- These will only work in wider shoes or a good supportive running shoe.
- This will not work in sandals, flats, or most women’s dress shoes.
Best Dress Shoe Orthotics:
- These are a great choice for dress orthotics.
Best 3/4 Length Orthotics:
- These are great options for women’s dress shoes and thinner shoes.
- These are not the most supportive pair of orthotics.
Cuboid Syndrome Pain Relief:
Massage & Ice Products:
- Ice is an excellent option that can be safe for almost everyone.
- There is some debate about whether icing is worth doing, but this can help limit the need for medications and keep your options open for chronic pain.
- This works great for your arch, less for the ball of the foot.
- The more muscle and ligament tissue there is, the better ice will work there.
Menthol Based Gels:
- Bio freeze is one of our favorites.
- These gels have been studied to work 2x if ice.
- This works great for the ball of the foot.
- This can be amazingly effective for the bottom of the heel and Achilles tendon sore regions.
- These can work great for loosening your muscles.
- This allows less tightness and pressure on the ball of your foot.
- This is amazingly effective for the arch, the gastrocnemius, calf muscle, and the hamstring and thigh muscles.
- This also works very well for the gluteus muscles if you are having butt cheek or hip pain.

Why does my cuboid bone hurt?
- If he ever ask yourself “my cuboid bone hurts?”
