The New Year will be here before anyone knows it and many student-athletes from Sugar Land’s high schools will begin training in earnest for the 2015 University Interscholastic League (UIL) Track and Field Season. As runners take to the gym, track, and streets, it is important that they are aware of health and medical issues in their feet and ankles that maybe require diagnosis and treatment from Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists, such as plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma, or stone bruise. These ailments can make running uncomfortable or even painful, but we will get you back on track in a speedy manner!


Stone bruise, also known as metatarsalgia, is not so much an injury as it is the symptom of various ailments. You will know if you have an issue when there is pain under the ball of your foot. The pain is typically experienced during weight-bearing activities or ones that induce additional force upon the foot, like running.

Given that stone bruises arise for a variety of reasons, there are various methods that will be used in treating your pain and discomfort. Some of the treatments we recommend and use to relieve the pain include resting, wearing appropriate footwear, and the use of orthotics. Elevating the affected foot after long periods of standing or exercise, along with an icing regimen, can provide relief. If the root cause is ill-fitting or underperforming footwear, a simple change of shoes might help. Orthotics can help evenly distribute bodyweight and are quite beneficial if an uneven distribution is the issue.

Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists in Sugar Land, TX, has the experience to effectively diagnosis and treat whatever condition might be causing the metatarsalgia for you or the runner in your family. If you have forefoot pain, call us at (888) 784-5335 and set up an appointment with Dr. Marco Vargas today. We will make sure that you can hit the ground running after your pain has been relieved!
