I've seen a few people with a variety of symptoms , some with midfoot pain about the cuneo/navicular area occurring while walking, one with neuroma like symptoms and some with nothing specific other than tired feet wanting a massage.
While assessing various joints about the foot for ranges of motion and where to look to mobilise I find the dorsal aspect of the cuboid to be an uncomfortably painful spot when I attempt to assess or mobilise it.
In some cases it seems to be rock solid and any attempt to mobilise it in a plantar direction is too uncomfortable for the patient.
I presume that the cuboid is stuck.
I read the thread on subluxed cuboid
and couldn't really relate the discussion there to what I'm experiencing
Does anyone have any tips on
1/ what might make the dorsum of the cuboid so tender? ( and it's usually just the cuboid)
2/where else the problem might be if it's not with the cuboid
3/ how to mob' or manip' it to free it up with minimal pain to the patient
