Pain In The Ball Of The Foot (Metatarsalgia)

A common condition known as metatarsalgia can result in pain along the ball of the foot. This may be the result of abnormal metatarsal or toe length, the presence of ligament and tendon tears, and local micro-trauma from shoes and/or overuse activities. We will assess the cause of your pain and prescribe an appropriate treatment plan. In some cases of chronic metatarsal pain, we offer realignment utilizing one of several surgical procedures, most commonly the Weil Metatarsal Osteotomy.
