Don’t go to the doctor if you have any pain in the foot that you can’t stop

Metatarsalgia has become my life. Lately I’ve been reading content and medical studies to find more correlations between subjective treatment responses and plantar pressure parameters of metatarsal pad treatment in metatarsalgia patients. When it comes to reducing the pain in the foot caused by metatarsalgia there are some rules your need to stick to.

To reduce swelling in the foot, don’t let your foot swell up.

In the last two years I’ve done a couple of different foot sprain treatments and metatarsal sprain treatments and they were all incredibly effective and helped reduce the pain and swelling. You can read a series of blog posts about me doing various foot sprain treatments, which can be found here and here.

The last leg of the sprain treatment which helped most of us was the foot massage. I spent hours relaxing and helping myself to relax and feel better.

At the end it was about the only foot sprain treatment I got to see how my foot felt with no inflammation, pain, or swelling. Not all doctors agree that massage is always a good thing to do for metatarsalgia, however, to be honest I think it’s more often than not helpful and helpful for many more reasons than just pain relief.

I’ll just say it: When you go for a foot massage, you may be looking for relief, you may not be looking for pain reduction or a reduction of swelling, but maybe both.

Rule #2

If you wear your metatarsal on your left foot the pressure on the metatarsals on your right foot will often be opposite of what this causes.

For instance, if your metatarsal starts to tingle while resting on a piece of white plastic, it doesn’t mean that you have metatarsalgia. You have to rest it in the same way you rest your legs on the floor. If you’re a left-handed person don’t try to stretch the metatarsals on your right foot like a righty would with a metatarsal.

In the last two months I’ve been using 3.5mm tape on my left Metatarsal and 1.5mm tape on my right Metatarsal to keep the metatarsals in alignment. I haven’t worn my metatarsals on my right foot since I received my Metatarsal Repair Kit in May of 2013. I’m glad I did!

When I first started reading about my foot sprain, I wanted to stop using metatarsal clips. But now I’m using tape as a backup. I’ve been wearing the tape the entire time I’ve been taking care of my feet, and I can’t tell the difference.

Rule #3

When exercising in both shoes, try not to over stretch the metatarsals.
