Manipulation for Cuboid Syndrome

Cuboid syndrome is an interesting condition with many different understanding about what exactly it is; what causes it; and how to treat it. Everyone seems to have an opinion on cuboid syndrome. Is it a subluxed cuboid? Or is it just a strain of the ligaments about the joints the cuboid is involved in. Opinions are also divided on the value of cuboid manipulation. For some it’s the only treatment, for other cuboid manipulation is dangerous if not done properly.

Personally, I actually have no idea exactly what cuboid syndrome is. It does seem to respond to strapping foot orthotics and gentle manipulation. The manipulation does seem to work some times, but not at other times.
