Metatarsalgia is a general term used to denote a painful foot condition in the metatarsal region of the foot (the area just before the toes, more commonly referred to as the ball-of-the-foot). This is a common foot disorder that can affect the bones and joints at the ball-of-the-foot. Metatarsalgia (ball-of-foot-pain) is often located under the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th metatarsal heads, or more isolated at the first metatarsal head (near the big toe).

Treatment here includes intensive physiotherapy, which is accompanied with hot and cold packs, use of NSAID to relieve the pain, wearing corrective shoes, rest and in rare cases, surgery if needed.
