    Hello, I'm writing here because I don't know where to turn for my sore foot.
    I have seen podiatrists, chiropractors, osteopaths and kinesiologists ... without success.

    Last february, while running I felt pain in my cuboid.

    I went to see a podiatrist who tried to replace it, without success. After 2 weeks of rest, the same pain persisted. Even brisk walking gives me pain. So I had x-rays (see image) and I was recommended some exercises to give mobility to my ankle which was very difficult to move. I have often twisted my ankle on this foot. The pain has been present for 7 months now, although when my foot is at rest I notice improvement. As soon as I put a little too much stress on it, however, the pain becomes acute again. Following the images of my X-ray, do you have any possible solutions? Thanks in advance, Nicolas, a runner who can't wait to run around.

    Note: My ankle is much more flexible now and when the pain is not near the cuboid, it seems to move all over the sole of the foot with the presence of numbness

    It is hard to say without a more thorough assessment. Best guess is 'cuboid syndrome'.

    Update: I've finally found something that work beyond expectation.

    Yin yoga has some great pose that remove all the pain in the ankle and the cuboid area.

    Swan pose and the saddle pose for 3-5 mins each side each day release a lot of tension and now im able to run 30k+ each week.

    If someone has chronic cuboid pain associated with ankle sprain I highly recommand to give it a try.
