In brief: Yes
They will help with the inflammation but don't forget about: • rest.
• ice to the affected area. • take an over-the-counter pain reliever.. • wear proper shoes. • try shock-absorbing insoles. • use metatarsal pads. • consider arch supports. .

In brief: Potentially
Cortisone shots can "quiet down" infalmmation.
They are not a substitute for addressing the underlying issues (usually foot mechanics) which led to "metatarsalgia.".
