This is a normally-occurring boney prominence on the inside of the foot just above the arch. In some people there is an extra bone located at the tip of the navicular tuberosity.
What Are the Symptoms of Navicular Tuberosity?
Since this is a normally occurring bone there are often no symptoms at all. Shoe gear can rub along this area and cause swelling, redness and pain.
How is Navicular Tuberosity Treated?
This is only treated if there are symptoms. Treatment consists of padding, orthotics and shoe adjustments as needed. In more severe cases, a small portion of the bone may need to be removed.
