Metatarsalgia

Overview:

Metatarsalgia is a condition marked by pain and inflammation in the ball of your foot (the area just before the toes)

Causes:

  • Wearing improper fitting footwear

  • You may experience metatarsalgia if you're physically active and your feet are impacted by running and jumping.

  • Can also be caused by hammer toes, bunions, Morton's Neuroma and thinning of the fat pads at the balls of the feet.

Treatments:

Along with wearing proper footwear:

  • Massaging Insoles lift and support the longitudinal arch keeping your feet aligned. The glycerin fluid cuts the friction forces and absorbs the shock to the feet. This alleviates the pain and reduces the inflammation to the metatarsal heads.
