In spite of this wonderful museum experience, you likely will not feel inclined to take a trip to the DMA when you are living with forefoot pain that accompanies metatarsalgia. This condition has an array of causes, including:
Intense activity like running
For a majority of cases, conservative treatment proves to be rather effective for dealing with this ailment. Some tips to help are:
Resting your foot and avoiding stress that can lead to further injury. This will likely mean giving up running and various other sports for a while, but you can use the time to start low-impact activities like cycling or swimming. Once you are at full health, keep the low-impact exercises as part of your routine for injury prevention and greater overall fitness.
Arch supports, especially custom-prepared orthotics from our office, can help reduce stress on your metatarsal bones.
Shoes that offer adequate support and are intended for your stride, foot type, and the physical activities you perform can help with this condition.
Let our foot specialists provide extra cushioning for your sore feet with the use of injectable dermal fillers to protect them. We will determine the cause of your pain and discomfort and evaluate if this option can help. If so, we use FDA-approved biodegradable fillers to enhance your natural conditioning. This therapy can provide help for potentially up to one year, without posing the risk of major complications.
