(Last but not Least): Condition #14: Metatarsalgia
Metatarsalgia is a general term for pain in the area of the metatarsophalangeal joints (ball of the foot). Most common causes include Freiberg’s disease, interdigital nerve pain (Morton’s Neuroma- Interdigital nerve irritation), and capsulitis. Metatarsophalangeal joint (MPJ) pain usually results from tissue changes due to abnormal foot biomechanics. Sesamoiditis – is pain at the sesamoid bones beneath the head of the 1st metatarsal. Diagnosis for these conditions can be made within the clinical setting.
If you experience painful foot problems we encourage you to see a Chiropodist or Podiatrist. Life doesn’t have to hurt!
