Metatarsalgia is a broad umbrella term to describe an array of conditions that cause pain in the ball of the foot (under your foot just before the toes). Pain in the ball of the foot can be debilitating to the point where it can stop you from performing basic activities or sports. It is very common as the ball of the foot is under constant, excessive pressure for long periods of time. Morton’s neuroma, flexor plate dysfunction, capsulitis, bursitis and osteo arthritis are often conditions that cause pain in the ball of the foot.

Ball of foot pain is typically the result of bad footwear, high impact sports, poor foot mechanics (the way someone is walking), being overweight, a reduction of the fatty pad at the ball of the foot and walking on uneven or rocky ground.
