Prevent Foot Problems With Brachymetatarsia Treatment
In most cases, brachymetatarsia is a cosmetic issue. There are some cases where the condition becomes worrisome, and the patient must choose to prevent additional foot problems with brachymetatarsia treatment. Brachymetatarsia (also known as “short toe”) usually happens to the fourth toe bone of one foot or both feet. This can be painful when you’re walking because the other bones (toes) are holding more weight than usual. A majority of patients experience discomfort in shoes. If you are experiencing any of the below symptoms or concerns related to brachymetatarsia, it is important to seek medical advice to prevent further health complications or discomfort.
When To Prevent Foot Problems With Brachymetatarsia Treatment
If you suffer from excessive or continual pain and discomfort.
Brachymetatarsia can cause pain and discomfort in the affected foot, especially when walking or standing for long periods of time. If the pain is severe or affects your quality of life, it may be time to seek medical treatment.
If you have difficulty wearing shoes.
Brachymetatarsia can make it difficult to find shoes that fit properly and comfortably. If you are unable to find shoes that fit well or if you experience discomfort when wearing shoes, it may be time to seek medical treatment.
If you’re developing other foot problems.
Brachymetatarsia can increase the risk of developing other foot problems such as hammertoes, corns, and calluses. If you start to notice these or other foot problems, it may be time to seek medical treatment.
If you’re experiencing functional limitations.
In some cases, brachymetatarsia can limit the functionality of the foot, making it difficult to perform daily activities such as walking, running, or participating in sports. If you are experiencing functional limitations due to brachymetatarsia, it may be time to seek medical treatment.
