Metatarses are the long bones in the foot. These bones are designed to share the body weight of a person when walking and during other daily activities. The disruption of the delicate balance of bones in the foot causes mild and in some cases intense foot pain, which is known as metatarsalgia (foot pain).
Metatarsalgia can be caused by various factors including but not limited to systemic diseases like diabetes and bone abnormalities. One of the most common reasons for its occurrence is the disruption of the posture of metatarsals, the long foot bones.
