Treatment for your metatarsalgia, an overuse injury often caused by high-impact sports and repetitive stress on your upper foot, will be focused on reducing and eliminating your pain so you can resume your normal activities.
Our orthopedic specialists and physical therapists may recommend using custom-designed arch supports and metatarsal pads in your shoes to reduce pressure on your foot. We also may develop a physical therapy plan using exercises, stretches, massage and acupuncture to help relieve your symptoms. If your pain persists, we may consider surgery to realign the metatarsal bones in your upper foot.
