A neuroma, an inflamed nerve in the ball of the foot, can also cause pain under the 2nd toe joint.
A hammertoe can cause retrograde force on the metatarsal head, increasing the pressure under the ball of the foot and causing dull achy pain with walking. When you mention foot injuries, most people think of Achilles tendonitis, stress fractures or the dreaded plantar fasciitis.
Taping or Splinting: proper taping helps align your involved toe and prevents your toe from drifting.
While these afflictions seem to be the most popular, especially among runners, it is possible that pain in your forefoot could be the result of another common ailment: capsulitis. It can be a painful condition, often accompanied by swelling and redness in the affected area. McClanahan believes that toe springs (shoe designs that force toes to be held in an upward position) and tapered toe boxes may be the most common causes of capsulitis.


Also, metatarsal pads placed in your shoe can help return your foot’s fat pad to its rightful, protective location under your metatarsal heads. The most common cause of pain under the 2nd toe joint (2nd metatarsal phalangeal joint) is 2nd metatarsal overload syndrome. My wife, on the other hand, has chronic foot pain and it is unfortunate because it can limit her in many things involving fitness and even work.
Our Merry Janes, Metros and Ballerine flats can all fit dressier occasions if ordered in black. This is an overuse injury and a result of abnormal foot mechanics placing excess stress on the ball of the foot, causing small tears in the joint capsule which result in inflammation and pain. If left untreated, chronic capsulitis can lead to the formation of painful calluses that feel as if they have a core or seed inside of them.
Toe springs increase pressure under the joints where capsulitis often occurs, and tapered toe boxes squeeze your toes together, often taking much weight off the big toe and distributing it to the second toe.


Like you said, when you experience foot pain you should rest, use ice, stretch and even use anti-inflammatory agents.
When I apply pressure in the area at the base of that toe, it feels as if it is bruised, but no bruise is there. Pain is generally deep and dull, or sharp with weight bearing, tender with pressure and relieved with rest. Although this can happen to any joint in your body, it seems to be most common in the ball of your foot, especially behind your second toe. It is common to have pain when first stepping down in the morning or stepping down after long periods of rest.
