Metatarsalgia – a large word which means pain in the ball-of-your-foot!
If you have pain in the ball-of-your-foot the first thing you should do is get a diagnosis and establish the cause of the pain. Sometimes this may be improper fitting footwear, if so changing the footwear will be the solution. Sometimes the pain is due to pressure on the ball-of-the-foot, if so simple orthotics such as Footlogics can be enough to alleviate pain and discomfort. Footlogics and many other over-the-counter orthotics feature a metatarsal pad which helps to redistribute weight from the painful area under the ball-of-the-foot.
