Pain in ball of foot

There are many conditions that can result in pain in the ball of the foot. Some of the most common conditions are; metatarsalgia, Morton’s neuroma, capsulitis, and sesamoidits. All of these conditions are the result of excessive forces being placed on the bone, soft tissue structures or nerves in the ball of the foot. The goal of treatment in all of these conditions is to disperse excessive stress away from the ball of the foot.  

This can be accomplished with the use of Metatarsal Foam Cushion Pads, Gel Metatarsal Pads, and innersoles with metatarsal pads like the Scott Tri-Performance ¾ arch support. Shoes with a wider toe box like those available in the Propet Shoe and Sneaker line are helpful in reducing compression of the ball of the foot.
A more serious condition that results in pain in the foot is a metatarsal stress fracture. A stress fracture is a subtle break in the bone secondary to repetitive injury. A stress fracture may be diagnosed with X-rays but in some cases a bone scan or MRI may be necessary to visualize the break. Treatment involves decreasing stress on the affected bone. This can be achieved with crutches, a Surgical Shoe by Ovation, or a Cam Walker by Ovation.
