What is metatarsalgia?


Metatarsalgia is a common form of foot disease that often occurs in the forefoot area of the foot. Usually due to excessive compression of the forefoot

Or strain, damage to the fat pad under the head of the metatarsal, the main long-term, chronic, severe pain.

Prevention and treatment of metatarsalgia in the following ways

** Wear loose shoes

** often foot bath

** Mat pad before the foot pad to avoid pressure and pain in the feet

Normally structured foot, the first metatarsal should be longer than or equal to the second metatarsal, if you are metatarsalgia, then your second metatarsal longer than the first metatarsal. (This does not have to be your second toe is longer than the first toe.) The long second metatarsus leads to increased instability in the foot and ankle joints and poor motor efficiency, and can easily lead to trigger points and long-term pain.

The easiest way to treat metatarsalgia is to place a small cushion beneath the first metatarsal head, which is the ball of the thumb.
