Symptoms and causesSymptoms and causes
Pain in the forefoot is usually caused by overburdening of some sort, often as a consequence of the position of certain bones in the foot while standing and walking, a stress fracture or a micro-fracture.
Diagnosis and treatmentDiagnosis and treatment
To ascertain the right diagnosis, femoral head necrosis as well as instability of the base joint of the big toe must be excluded. An X-ray may be useful too, as well as, in some cases, a bone scan.
You can improve your foot stability with the following exercises. This improved stability may help you cope with your symptoms.
