Dropped Metatarsal

Dropped Metatarsal

Your foot has five metatarsals that each connect to one of your toes. If one of these metatarsals sits lower than the others, it will bear a greater amount of your body’s weight than it should, causing pain and inflammation.

High heels are often a culprit in the development of a dropped metatarsal. Luckily, multiple procedures are available to correct this problem.
