Pain (Metatarsalgia, Nerves, Stressfracture and Ganglion)
Metatarsalgia (Ball of the Foot)
Metatarsalgia describes pain along the long bones of the forefoot (metatarsal bones) and the ball of the foot where the toes meet the rest of the foot. Metatarsalgia can occur for many reasons. Once the exact cause is pinpointed, physiotherapy and the use of insoles is usually successful. Surgery is rarely needed.
Stress Fracture / Bone Edema
What is a stress fracture?
A stress fracture is a small fissure or crack in the weight-bearing bones of the foot, caused by repetitive overload to the bone, osteoporosis, or a general foot deformity. Conservative treatment is usually very successful and may require the use of walking boots, plaster and crutches to relieve the fracture from weight, and/or special medication.
Conservative Treatment, Insoles
Physiotherapy is the other main pillar of conservative treatment of the foot and ankle. If physiotherapy is necessary, I will refer you to one of my selected partners.
