Ball of Foot Pain (Metatarsalgia)
“After walking and standing all day I get tired, aching feet. Often I experience pain under the arch of my foot – sometimes a burning sensation right under the ball of my foot”.
This condition commonly occurs with women, however many men suffer from pain in the ball of the foot. Sometimes a callous develops in the centre of the foot and footwear may wear out in a similar fashion. It causes a burning sensation in the ball of the foot and can become very painful.
Ball of Foot Pain (Metatarsalgia) commonly occurs from rotation and dropping (plantarflexion) of the metatarsal bones along with excess pronation and weakening of the soft tissue (ligament & muscle) structures.
Orthotics align the central three (3) metatarsal shafts using an inbuilt 5mm met raise to correctly position and maintain the Metatarsal bone position. By balancing the weight distribution over five (5) metatarsal bones, this helps remove excess weight & friction which commonly causes the callous and burning sensation.
