Pain in top of foot

Posted by Jim on 6/05/04 at 05:36 (152074)

Hello, I have an unusually high instep on my right foot. The bone on top sticks out abnormally and has got worse over the course of 3 years. I go running and it causes me some discomfort across the top of my foot, not to mention the troubel I have when buying shoes!!!

Is there anything that can be done to reduce the hight of the bone? My first thoughts were to have it filed, but that sounds rather severe.

It is not a result of any surgery, but I may well have cracked it while Thai-boxing.

For any help you can give I would be truly grateful.
