Metatarsalgia

 

If you are experiencing pain or inflammation in the ball of your foot,-you may have metatarsalgia.  This condition is especially prevalent in physically active individuals  caused by repeated impact on the ball of the foot . 

Symptoms you may experience from this condition can include:

  • Sharp pain or dull ache just behind the toes on the ball of the foot.
  • Pain that worsens while walking, running or jumping and improves at rest.
  • Numbness or pain in the toes.
  • Pain in the feet that worsens when barefoot.

 

Causes of metatarsalgia

  • Improper foot alignment
  • Improper walking mechanics
  • Unusual foot shape
  • Hammertoe
  • Intense training and activity
  • Bunions
  • Excess weight
  • Tight shoes
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Stress fractures

The painful foot can be diminished in a few days with rest, ice and over the counter pain medication. However, if your pain is severe or ongoing, it may be time for a consultation. Other treatment options include modification of footwear or insoles, use of metatarsal pads and orthotics..
