Update about definition and classification of metatarsalgia

Bardelli M.

Santa Rita Hospital, Montecatini Terme, Pistoia, Italia

Metatarsalgia refers to acute or chronic pain in relation to one or more metatarsophalangeal joints caused by damage to the anatomical structures that interact with the joint (bone, cartilage, capsule and ligaments, vessels, nerves, tendons, bursae and the subcutaneous tissue, skin), whether or not of mechanical origin. Metatarsalgia after surgery can be included in the non biomechanical group if the pain is caused by the damage of soft tissue or bone and cartilage of foot, or else in the biomechanical group if the pain is mainly due to functional anomalies or structural changes by irregular weight distribution on the forefoot.
