Metatarsalgia

Medical Definition: Pain in the metatarsal region of the foot caused by conditions of
"fallen metatarsal arch", "ball of foot" pain, Morton's Neuroma (irritated nerve endings), and bursitis.

Causes:
Repetitive strain, excessive running and/or poor biomechanics may lead to metatarsalgia.

Symptoms:
Pain in the forefoot region, especially felt when walking or running.

Recommended Treatment:
Seek evaluation from a medical professional. Rest and keep weight off of foot as much as possible. Stretch the calf muscles (soleus, gastrocnemius). Use metatarsal pads to provide a comfortable lift to the central metatarsal heads. Click for Calf Stretch
