Let Foot Solutions Help You Find the Right Solution to Your Metatarsalgia Pain
Metatarsalgia, commonly referred to as ball-of-foot pain, can occur in the region between the arch and the toes. Pain starts to occur when the balance between the metatarsal bones is thrown off. Sometimes pressure on the ends of the metatarsal bones can cause symptoms in the ball of the foot.
Metatarsalgia derives its name from the term "metatarsals," or long bones of the foot. The metatarsal area is the region where the toes join the rest of the foot and is a spot often subjected to added pressure because of body weight. People who suffer from this condition often feel intense pain in the ball of the foot.
