187 Possible Causes for Long Metatarsals

  • Metatarsal Fracture

    Back to Top Anatomy Your forefoot (metatarsus) contains five long metatarsal bones. As a group, the metatarsal bones help raise and lower or twist your foot.[] Back to Top Anatomy Your forefoot (metatarus) contains five long metatarsal bones. As a group, the metatarsal bones help raise and lower or twist your foot.[] Explained Metatarsals are the long bones in the forefoot.[]

  • Freiberg's Disease

    long metatarsals.[] Excessively long metatarsals. Foot trauma. Symptoms of Freiberg's disease Although Freiberg's disease may be asymptomatic, it can cause symptoms.[] It is an uncommon condition, occurring most often in young women, athletes, and those with abnormally long metatarsals.[]

  • Metatarsal Stress Fracture

    What is a Metatarsal Stress Fracture? When excessive stress is placed upon the ball of the foot, a hairline fracture of one of the long metatarsal bones may occur.[] A metatarsal stress fracture is a fine fracture in one of the long metatarsal bones in the foot. A stress fracture can occur through overuse or poor foot biomechanics.[]

  • Metatarsalgia

    For example if either the second or the third metatarsal is very long in comparison to the fourth metatarsal, you may be predisposed to this condition.[] This includes a high-arched foot, or a foot with an extra-long metatarsal bone. All these factors also increase the risk of the trauma in sportsmen.[] […] fat pad; - metatarsal stress frx ; - verruca plantaris - abnormally long 2nd metatarsal; - unless the foot is free to deviate laterally, the second metatarsal takes an undue[]

  • Hallux Rigidus

    Overly long metatarsal bone. Overly short metatarsal bone. Repetitive injuries (particularly jamming the toe).[] For example, if the condition is due to a long first metatarsal, the best treatment will be to shorten it.[] Sesamoid dyscrasias, flexor plate injury or immobility, intrinsic muscle contracture, altered metatarsal head shape, short first metatarsal, long proximal phalanx, or a tight[]

  • Exostosis

    It will normally appear at the end of the long bones of the body. Metatarsal cuneiform exostosis – This is sometimes called saddle bone deformity.[] These areas are due to a prominence of the long bone behind the toe called the metatarsal bone.[]

  • Bunion

    The largest of the two is the metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP), where the first long bone of the foot (metatarsal) meets the first bone of the toe (phalanx).[] Abstract A long-term retrospective review of a long oblique distal osteotomy of the fifth metatarsal for correction of a tailor's bunion deformity is presented.[] A bunion forms when the bones that make up the MTP joint move out of alignment: the long metatarsal bone shifts toward the inside of the foot, and the phalanx bones of the[]

  • Heelspur

    […] bones, which are five long bones in the foot located between the heel and the toes.[] […] surface of the heel, while plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia — a thick connective tissue band that extends from the heel bone to the heads of the metatarsal[]

  • Fracture

    What Is a Fifth Metatarsal Fracture? Fractures (breaks) are common in the fifth metatarsal—the long bone on the outside of the foot that connects to the little toe.[] Of the 28 bones in the foot, 19 are toe bones (phalanges) and metatarsal bones (the long bones in the midfoot).[] A metatarsal fracture occurs when one of the long bones of the midfoot is cracked or broken.[]

  • Fibroma

    Very few cases of intracortical CMFs located in the long tubular bones have been reported to date.[] Moreover, even though the feet are the second most common site for CMF (after the knees), intracortical metatarsal CMF has not been reported previously, to our knowledge.[]
