Arch Pain Treatment Seattle

Pain on the outside (side of little toe) of foot



Pain on the outside (side of the little toe) of the foot is a common problem we treat in our Seattle foot and ankle clinic. In most cases outside of the foot pain responds well to treatment.

If the outside of your foot hurts, it is usually due to one of several problems that affect the outside of the foot near the 5th metatarsal (long bone behind little toe) bone. Sometimes the pain is found a bit more on top of the foot.

Pain on the outside of the foot can be due to a number of different foot conditions. If the outside of your foot is sore, use the picture of the foot below to find the area that is most painful. Click on that foot problem to read more and learn how to best treat pain in this area (remember you should see a physician to accurately diagnosis your problem). The problems listed below are the most common conditions causing pain on the outside of the foot. A stress fracture of the long bone behind your little toe (5th metatarsal) may require non-weight bearing cast or surgery so make sure you don’t delay your diagnosis. Click on the link and follow the instructions we give for treating these problems.

If you twisted your ankle and now have pain on the outside of your foot you may have a 5th metatarsal tuberosity fracture.
