Ball-of-Foot Pain Information
Learn More About Ball-of-Foot-Pain Causes, Symptoms & Treatments
Ball-of-Foot pain, or Metatarsalgia, is a painful condition in the metatarsal region of the foot, commonly referred to as the ball-of-the-foot. The ball-of-the-foot is the area just before the toes, where fatty pads help cushion the feet when you"re walking, running or staying active. A common disorder, ball-of-foot pain affects the bones and joints. Ball-of-foot pain is often located under the second, third, and fourth toe or more isolated near the big toe.

Causes of Ball-of-Foot Pain
Ball-of-the-foot pain occurs when one or more of the metatarsal heads becomes inflamed. How does this happen? Below are a few of the most common causes:
Excessive pressure over a long period of timeImproper fitting footwear (most frequently women"s dress shoes)Footwear with a narrow toe box (toe area)Shoes with heels that are too highParticipation in high impact activities without proper footwear and/or orthoticsAdvancing age
Symptoms of Ball-of-Foot Pain
The universal symptom of metatarsalgia is pain in the ball-of-the-foot, which is most pronounced when walking or engaging in sports. Other common symptoms include discomfort wearing shoes and socks, and pain during activities where impact is applied to the foot such as running.

Ball-of-Foot Pain Treatments and Recommended Products
Determining the cause of ball-of-the-foot pain is the first step toward treatment and prevention. Prevention may be as simple as changing the type of footwear you use. Footwear with a high, wide toe box (toe area) and a rocket sole is ideal. It allows the foot to spread out while reducing the stress on the ball-of-the-foot. Metatarsal pads, cushions and bandages may provide additional support.
