Metatarsalgia

Metatarsalgia

Do you feel pain in the front of your foot? If you have a burning sensation when standing, walking, or putting any kind of pressure on your foot, you may suffer from metatarsalgia.

The name comes from the forefoot bones called metatarsal bones that articulate with the phalanges of your toes. If you feel a kind of diffuse burning sensation under the soles of your feet when you walk or even when you are static, you may be suffering from this foot problem.

What are the symptoms of metatarsalgia?

In most cases, the affected people feel like they have several needles or pebbles in their shoes. The pain is situated between the arch and the toes, where the soles of the feet are.

There are several types of metatarsalgia:

  • Static: when you stand or walk.
  • Traumatic: they usually follow a shock, a sprain or a fracture.
  • Dystrophic: this is manifested in children who are in the growth phase and athletes mainly.
  • Neurological: often related to Morton's disease (irritation of the interosseous plantar nerve)
  • Tumor
  • Inflammatory

The people most affected by metatarsalgia are women, especially when they are overweight or when they reach menopause. If you are overweight, you will obviously have to lose weight and medical treatment is also recommended. Your supporting foot will be put to rest for a period of three weeks so you don't have to use your foot or stand for extended periods of time, and the causes of the problem will be explored and addressed as well.

Your foot type also comes into play: anterior hollow feet, "Greek" feet, round flat forefoot, short Achilles tendon or congenital Hallux valgus (Onion) are usually considered to be aggravating factors or direct causes.

What are the possible treatments for this type of pain?

There are several ways and treatments for metatarsalgia possible. First, you need to think about the type of shoes you wear. Avoid narrow-toe shoes, pumps shoes and high heels.

In terms of treatment, corticosteroids infiltrations may be necessary. The management of pain will be done by taking analgesics such as paracetamol or by taking anti-inflammatories. Wearing a plantar orthosis to correct the defects that we have noticed during the diagnosis is also possible. It is possible to combine with this massage and rehabilitation sessions to soften your foot and avoid muscle atrophy and toe claw. Add to this pedicure care to reduce the callus and you should be able to feel better in the space of a few weeks.
