Metatarsalgia is a term that refers to a localized pain affecting the metatarsal region of the foot. The joints and the bones of the metatarsals are affected by this condition, often due to excessive pressure inflicted on the metatarsal heads. Treatment includes home remedies such as massages and hot compresses as well as inflammation-reducing ointments and pain management medication.
