Metatarsalgia can be described as a condition in which you experience pain in the balls of your foot or under your metatarsals. This is common in sports people who run or jump a lot. It can also be caused due to abnormal weight distribution caused by a foot that pronates excessively. Another cause of metatarsalgia is ill-fitting footwear.
Metatarsalgia can be treated with ice and rest and orthotic insoles. Podiapro’s orthoses for metatarsalgia correct over-pronation in the foot and also have soft medical grade poron under the metatarsals to offload weight from the region. If shoes allow, we also fit a metatarsal bar that further offloads weight from the metatarsal heads and brings relief from pain and allows for healing.
