Metatarsalgia is defined as pain and inflammation in the ball of the foot. It is often more a symptom of other conditions, such as Hammer Toes or Morton’s Neuroma, rather than a condition in and of itself. Typically the result of an overuse injury, Metatarsalgia is often the result of poor foot biomechanics that causes abnormal weight distribution.
Symptoms of Metatarsalgia
Metatarsalgia sufferers may feel pain and inflammation in the “ball” area of their foot, sometimes experienced as a “burning” sensation. The pain and discomfort generally do not come on suddenly, instead, it tends to build gradually over several weeks or months.
