Joint & Ball of Foot Pain Relief in Newtown, Warminster & Surrounding Areas
Are you experiencing pain or a stabbing sensation in the joints or balls of your feet when you walk or stand for prolonged periods? If yes, you may have metatarsalgia or swelling in the areas of the balls of your feet. Pre-existing conditions may cause you to put more pressure on the balls of your foot which only complicates the situation. After our experts do a complete assessment of your case with x-rays, we will discuss the possible treatment options including non-surgical treatments such as injections, orthotics, and shoe modifications, and laser treatments.
Symptoms of Metatarsalgia
Warning signs of metatarsalgia can be more damaging to patients who are athletes and already put more strain on their heels. Symptoms may develop instantly due to high-interval training but most issues take some time to develop. That’s why it is important to be aware of any warning signs if need be.
Common symptoms of metatarsalgia include:
- Sharp burning pain in the ball of your foot
- Intensifying pain when running
- Radiating pain from the balls of the feet into the toes
- Numbness or tingling in the toes
- A feeling in your feet as if you are walking with a pebble in your shoe
Treatment Options for Metatarsalgia
Symptoms of metatarsalgia can greatly affect your overall quality of life and disrupt normal day-to-day activities. In most cases, metatarsalgia can be treated non-surgically. An experienced podiatrist may prescribe specially-designed orthotics or shock-absorbing insoles and arch supports to prevent and minimize future problems with metatarsalgia.
