In Clínica San Román we use advanced techniques in percutaneous or minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of metatarsalgia. Visit Clínica Médico-Podológica San Román for more information. Metatarsalgia is the pain caused by a metatarsal overload or a fallen transverse arch. It may occur that not all the metatarsal bones are placed in the plane of support with the same inclination and length. An excess or shortage in the inclination or collapsing of the metatarsal bone, or in the length thereof, can cause an alteration of the anterior transverse arch and of the metatarsal parabola, causing plantar hypersupports and pain which hinder normal walking.
At Clínica San Román we make orthopedic insoles in a plastic mould with the latest technology in materials and machinery. This conservative treatment is usually effective and adapts to almost any type of footwear.
For resistant cases, in Clínica San Román we offer a surgical treatment with minimally invasive surgery, accessing by a 2 mm incision.
