Is Foot Pain Affecting Your Game? Metatarsalgia May Be The Culprit!

Your feet can experience all sorts of aches and pains. It’s not surprising to be watching a football or basketball game – whether professional or amateur – and see a player limping off the field. Just a Google news search on foot pain brought up six stories of professional athletes suffering from a foot injury this week.

However, knowing where pain affects your foot is important in identifying the cause. One common foot complaint is pain and inflammation in the ball of the foot. The ball of the foot is the metatarsal, and the foot condition is metatarsalgia. With metatarsalgia, you can have symptoms of sharp pain, tingling in the toes, and feeling like your walking with a pebble in your shoe.

Pain can happen from participating in activities with lots of running and jumping. Wearing the wrong type of footwear can also cause problems. Factors also include weight, trauma to the foot and the shape of your foot and toes.

Dr. Marco Vargas, of Foot & Ankle Associates, can help identify the cause of your pain. He will perform a thorough examination of the area and ask you questions about your physical activity. With your help, he will come up with a treatment plan.

If you have symptoms of metatarsalgia and not finding relief in rest or icing the area, contact Dr. Vargas. You can schedule an appointment at our Sugar Land office at (281) 313-0090
