Common Conditions and Diagnosis

Capsulitis

Capsulitis is inflammation of a joint capsule. Ligaments surround your joints, including your toe joints, and help form a capsule. Joint capsules help your joints to function properly. Capsulitis is a common problem in certain parts of your body, especially your shoulders and toes. Capsulitis-related inflammation may cause significant discomfort. This health problem can, over time, lead to toe dislocation if it not treated appropriately. In fact, capsulitis is sometimes known as pre-dislocation syndrome. Capsulitis is a condition that can manifest in people of all ages.
