Inflammation.: An experienced specialist should be able to determine and the isolate the true nature of the pain. Depending on whether the tissue is soft tissue, bone or both, a treatment protocol can be designed. Some considerations might involve stress fracture, capsulitis, neuritis and metatarsalgia. It is best to seek help before your problem escalates and more tissue areas become involved.
