What’s Involved In The Treatment Of Metatarsalgia?

First, we must understand the nature of a person’s metatarsal. The term is derived from two Greek words: meta and tarsus. Meta means “after”, whilst tarsus is known as the anatomical structure that is located after one’s toes. We can see how the name refers to bones in one’s foot that are behind other bones, like those present in an actual human skeleton.
I will first give a brief overview of the foot, as this is relevant to understanding metatarsalgia. The foot is divided into three sections: the forefoot, midfoot and hind-foot. Each section contains bones that are called phalanges (fingers), metatarsals (middle toes) and tarsals, respectively. The phalange consists of five bones beginning with one’s big toe. This bone connects to the next four smaller ones in order until it reaches one’s smallest toe.
The metatarsal consists of five bones that are located behind the phalange. In addition, the metatarsal connects to one’s toes in order from big toe through to small toe.
The tarsus is located behind the metatarsal and consists of seven bones. It connects to one’s toes in order from big toe through to small toe.
This brings us to the foot’s bones. There are 33 bones in one’s foot and 26 of them belong to a person’s right side, whereas 7 of them belong to a left side.
Now we will examine the metatarsal. It consists of five bones: the first, second, third, fourth and fifth metatarsals. The first metatarsal is connected to one’s big toe and then connects with four other smaller ones until it reaches one’s smallest toe.

In the past, in my early days of consciousness research, I had a rather simplistic view on humanity and one that was common at the time. People were not merely biological organisms or machines; they were composed of physical matter but also energy. They were like batteries storing up large amounts of internal potential. The potential for what exactly wasn’t clear to me then.
I had a friend who knew about the work I was doing and decided to ask me some questions. As we were talking, he said something that made my view of humanity shift slightly with one question:
He asked me if I believed that each person has a soul. This caused me to pause and think about it for a moment. It struck me as odd how he just casually mentioned the concept of souls, in such an offhanded manner, with no explanation or reason given.
I paused for a few minutes to gather my thoughts and then replied to him that I didn’t know. He, however, was certain of it.
He then went on to explain his reasoning. He said that humans had this internal energy, and he called it a soul. This energy was the source of all life, consciousness, creativity, love, and emotion in human beings.
Though I didn’t have a name for it at the time, this energy sounded remarkably similar to what I would later refer to as gamma radiation. This is the type of radiation that we had detected in ourselves but given no thought to.

The treatment of metatarsalgia is an interesting subject and involves many medical and non-medical areas. Let me just focus on one thing for now, which is the definition of ‘metatarsalgia’. According to the dictionary: “Metatarsalgia (from Greek μετά meaning ‘after’ or ‘beyond’, Ταρσός meaning “palm”, and λαγών meaning “wrist” / wrist joint) denotes any disorder involving pain in a region of the hand that includes parts of either the metacarpophalangeal joints (MCPJ), or carpometacarpal joints (CMCJ).
Ok, so an interesting thing about this topic is that it involves the medical field very closely. The treatment of metatarsalgia needs to be done by a doctor or a specialized nurse who understands pain in the hands and feet, because sometimes patients may have other problems related to their hands as well. So doctors need to know how to treat these types of issues.
Also, the treatment of metatarsalgia involves a lot of psychological aspects. I looked up some information on this particular aspect and found that “In the past it was believed that pain in the foot or hand was due to excessive activity or stress”. But now we know better.
Now, a lot of the information I found was about ‘Effleurage’, which is “a broad category of massage techniques involving gliding movements”. It seems to be quite effective for people who suffer from metatarsalgia and other types of pain related to the hands or feet. Generally speaking, it’s an advanced form of massage that involves the palms and fingers.
Other methods of treatment include the use of splints, strapping or taping and other types of protective devices. Also, in some cases patients may be given pain relieving medication.
Another interesting aspect of treatment is the use of ultrasound and other types of technology. Some doctors are now using a device called ‘TheraDoc’ which allows them to “provide pain relief through electrical stimulation”. The method works by sending low-voltage electricity into musculoskeletal tissue, which usually relieves pain.
At times like this, when I am faced with such topics, I often think of the old paradox of the Cretan who says that all Cretans are liars. In trying to determine whether or not any given statement is true, we need a way to separate out those statements which are definitely false from those whose truth value we can’t yet be sure about. The problem lies in finding some kind of test for falsity which itself has no falsehoods in it.
If we could find a statement which, when added to any other statement would result in the latter being definitely false, then that might be our test. But if every Cretan were to say this is such a truth-test for falsehoods, and he was lying (by definition), then it would turn out that his claim itself was a falsehood.
The paradox can be resolved, however, if we distinguish between the truth-values of a statement and its meaning. The Cretan might define ‘truth’ to mean ‘falsehood,’ but this would not make his claim that all Cretans are liars true.
We might also say that ‘true’ means ‘not true,’ so if we use this definition, then the Cretan’s statement about all Cretans being liars is false.
But another problem arises in trying to decide what the Cretan’s statement means. If we say that it does not mean ‘all Cretans are liars’ or ‘truth means falsehood,’ then what does it mean? What is its meaning?
If we can’t find the meaning of any statement, then how do we decide whether or not it is true? If everything is meaningless, can anything be meaningful? And if everything is meaningful, then what decides which things are meaningful?
