Treating Metatarsalgia with Pinnacle
Metatarsalgia treatment often involves;
- Footwear advice and modification
- Strapping, padding and metatarsal domes
- Custom foot orthotics or modified prefabricated orthotics
- Injection therapies such as cortisone, local anaesthetic and saline
- Dry needling
- Activity modification
Metatarsalgia treatment doesn’t need to be overly complicated or onerous in terms of time commitment to rehab. The mainstay of treatment is offloading the area to allow healing to occur, then gradually re-introducing activities that were previously painful. An important part of metatarsalgia treatment is identifying all the contributing factors that led to the injury and making sure that steps are put in place to prevent a recurrence.
