Metatarsalgia = Pain the the ball of the foot
Metatarsalgia is a general word for pain in the ball of the foot.
Metatarsalgia has many different causes from fractures, joint inflammation, flat feet, high arched feet, corns, calluses, hammertoes, and the loss of cushion to the bottom of the foot.
For certain causes of metatarsalgia, foot filler may be a treatment option to bring back cushion and padding in the feet, and allow you to get back to life pain-free.
Flat foot is also known as pes planus. Due to the change in arch height in your foot, having a flat foot can be painful.
Some symptoms of flat foot include pain, arthritis, corns, and calluses.
Hammer toes are the most common toe deformity seen.
There are many factors that would make someone more likely to develop a hammer toe such as having a high-arched foot.
