Additional indications treated were grouped as ankle tendonitis, sesamoiditis, metatarsalgia
, delayed union/ non-unions, neuromas, and other.
Recent statistical data in fact report that the incidence of peri-tendinopathies, enthesities of the Achilles' tendon, bursitis, plantar fasciitis and foot spur, but also tendinopathies of the posterior tibial tendon and metatarsalgia
make up around 50% of all the foot problems caused by "unwise" physical activity.

," Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, vol.
Peripheral neuropathic pain was due to metatarsalgia
, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain with irradiation, and meralgia paresthetica.
Morton's neuroma--a benign (non-cancerous) growth of nerve tissue causing metatarsalgia
often between the third and fourth toes.
Although this kind of "load transfer" could relieve the plantar pressure in the injury of TMT joint to some extent, the additional increased plantar pressure in other part of the forefoot might cause the complications such as the forefoot metatarsalgia
, painful callosities, osteonecrosis of the MH, plantar fasciitis and pressure ulcer if it existed in a long time.
Several scientific evidences suggests that the contracture of the posterior tendons and calf muscle bellies increases the load transfer from the hindfoot to the forefoot, changing the load distribution on the plantar surface, which could influence on the emergence of calluses, metatarsalgia
, lesser toes deformities, and skin ulcers .
The "learn" section of the profoot.co website also features articles on how to deal with nail fungus, high arch, foot corns, bunions, over pronation (also known as flat feet) and metatarsalgia
, a painful injury caused by overstress of the forefoot.
Other conditions that cause forefoot pain can be differential diagnoses of Morton's neuroma and include stress fracture, metatarsalgia
, degenerative and inflammatory arthritis, Freiberg disease, tarsal tunnel syndrome, tumors, and metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint instability [1, 2].
In addition to lateral deviation of the great toe, hallux valgus can also induce various pathological changes to the first ray of bones in the foot, such as internal deviation of the first metatarsal, metastatic metatarsalgia
or bunion formation.
When speaking of metatarsalgia
, it is customary to exclude conditions affecting the first metatarsophalangeal joint, as those conditions tend to fall under the umbrella of hallux valgus, hallux rigidus and other related conditions of the big toe.
Other causes of fore foot pain were Rheumatoid Arthritis, Gouty Arthritis, Callosities, Hallux Valgus, stress Fractures of the Metatarsals, Plantar Fasciitis, Infections, Morton's Metatarsalgia
and Barefoot Walking (mechanical).
