NY Podiatrist treats Metatarsalgia

By Isaac Tabari


The ball of the foot is known as the metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ) region. The long bones of the forefoot (metatarsals) and the toes (made up of phalanges) form the MTPJs. Metatarsalgia is a catch-all term used to describe pain in this region (algia = pain). It is therefore not a diagnosis in its own right as there are many conditions that can cause pain in this region. The more common are listed below:

  • Arthritis
  • Capsule rupture
  • Capsulitis / Synovitis
  • Cavus foot
  • Flat foot
  • Freiburgs disease
  • Ganglions
  • Hammertoe
  • Neuroma
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Retracted toe
  • Tenosynovitis
