What is a metatarsalgia? - hammer toes

The foot has to deal with many forces every day. Every step we take in a day uses the foot. We land on the heel of the foot and the foot is unwound. However, forefoot complaints can arise. In a Metatarsalgia, the injury is at the bottom of the metatarsal bones. Often at the second and third toe. Metatarsalgia is a general name for complaints in the metatarsals, often we also refer to this as hammer toes.

In metatarsalgia or hammer toes, it is the metatarsals that hurt. The pressure on the bones is increased when taking steps. Inflammation and pain can result from this.

Causes of the metatarsalgia

Metatarsalgia injuries can have multiple causes. One cause may be that the footbed underfoot deteriorates as we age. The fat pad becomes thinner, which can increase the pressure on the metatarsals. Often the pressure is increased when ladies wear a shoe with a high heel. The pressure comes on the forefoot and can become sensitive.

Incorrect foot posture can also increase pressure on the forefoot.


  • Pain in the bottom of the forefoot
  • Sensitive forefoot
  • Calluses under the foot
  • Corn under the foot
  • Swollen foot
  • Risk of tingling

Diagnosis and recovery

The main thing about the recovery from metatarsalgia or hammer toes is by changing the pressure distribution on the foot. It helps to put on good shoes without a high heel. It is also advisable to visit an orthopedist. This can develop arch supports in which the pain symptoms decrease considerably.
