Home :: Foot Tenosynovitis

Foot Tenosynovitis

Inflammation of the lining of a tendon sheath in the foot. This lining secretes a fluid that lubricates the tendon. When the lining becomes inflamed, the tendon cannot glide smoothly in its covering.


  • Any foot-tendon lining.
  • Soft tissue in the surrounding area, including blood vessels, nerves, ligaments, periosteum (covering to bone) and connective tissue.


  • Strain from unusual use or overuse of .muscles and tendons in the foot.
  • Direct blow or injury to the foot. Tenosynovitis becomes more likely with repeated injury to the ankle or foot.
  • Infection introduced through broken skin at the time of injury or through a surgical incision after injury

Signs & Symptoms

  • Constant pain or pain with motion.
  • Limited motion of the foot and ankle.
  • Crepitation (a "crackling" sound when the tendon moves or is touched).
  • Redness and tenderness over the inflamed tendon.


The goal of treatment is to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Follow your doctor's instructions. Instructions are supplemental.

  • Wrap the foot and ankle with an elasticized bandage until healing is complete.
  • Apply heat frequently. Use heat lamps, hot soaks ,hot showers, heating pads, or heat liniments and ointments.
  • Take whirlpool treatments, if available.

Home Diet

During recovery ,Eat a well-balanced diet that includes extra protein, such as meat, fish, poultry, cheese, milk and eggs. Increase fiber and fluid intake to prevent constipation that may result from decreased activity.Your doctor may suggest vitamin and mineral supplements to promote healing.

Prevention Tips
  • Engage in a vigorous program of physical conditioning before beginning regular sports participation.
  • Warm up adequately before practice or competition.
  • Wear protective gear appropriate for your sport.
  • Avoiding repetitive movements and overuse of an extremity may help prevent tenosynovitis.
  • Learn proper moves and techniques for your sport.
