Metatarsalgia is a painful inflammation that occurs in the ball of your foot. You will find that this condition usually comes into play from overuse in sporting injuries that have come about from jumping or running. However, suppose you are prone to wearing shoes that don’t fit, experience foot abnormalities such as bunions or hammertoe, or have arthritis or other diseases. In that case, this condition can happen to you. Being overweight can cause this problem to occur as well.
Catch this condition quickly and see a podiatrist. Your doctor will perform an exam and then begin to treat your problem.
If nothing on this list helps, you will need surgery. The bones of your metatarsal will be realigned so that you will be able to walk correctly.
Be proactive with your feet. The longer you wait, the higher you are at risk for needing surgery. By switching to proper footwear and treating the issue early, you will be more likely to be given a better prognosis.
