Abductor hallucis pain is probably an overuse injury to the proximal part of the abductor hallucis muscle near its insertion or could be a trigger point issue in the muscle.

The symptoms typically mimic plantar fasciitis however, the pain tends to be more medial on the heel and posterior arch area and above plantar fascia

Management would be the general management of any overuse/overload type injury or trigger point therapy if indicated.

Abductor hallucis inhibition:
This is a poorly described and understood concept that may be related and have a similar pain pattern.
Typically, a cuboid mobilization can often give a spontaneous resolution to symptoms.
