Metatarsalgia Treatment

Request An Appointment

The knee is affected by a number of injuries and one of the common issues is known as the Iliotibial friction syndrome. This is a condition where the knee is painful due to the inflammation of the iliotibial band. We will use our metatarsalgia treatment to deal with this syndrome.

The iliotibial band is a thick strip of connective tissue that runs from the hip to the shin and helps in stabilizing the knee joint. When this band gets inflamed, it rubs against the bone on the outer side of the knee, causing pain and swelling. The pain is worse when you bend your knee or walk downhill.

Our Treatment Process

The first step in the metatarsalgia treatment is to reduce the inflammation of the iliotibial band. This can be done by applying ice to the affected area for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day. You can also take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen or naproxen.

If the inflammation persists, our next step is to stretch and strengthen the muscles around the knee. This will help reduce the stress on the iliotibial band and prevent it from rubbing against the bone. We will also massage the affected area to loosen the tight muscles.

In severe cases, our metatarsalgia treatment may involve the use of corticosteroid injections or surgery. The injections are given to reduce the inflammation and pain while surgery is done to release the tension on the iliotibial band.

After the metatarsalgia treatment, it is important to take care of your knee to prevent the condition from recurring. You should avoid activities that put a strain on the knee such as running or jumping. You should also wear shoes with good support and cushioning.
