Static pathology of the forefoot, as a cause of so-called “static” metatarsalgia, represents the most frequent reason for consultation in pathology of the foot. Such metatarsalgia can originate from a wide range of affections; any static disruption will bring about an imbalance of the metatarsal row and an uneven distribution of pressures and will thus cause podalgia.
