Metatarsalgia is an ailment commonly caused by improper foot function, causing an increase in weight to be placed on the ball of the foot, or the second, third, and fourth metatarsal heads. This weight increase is the cause of inflammation around the ball of the foot and is characterized by numbness and tingling in the area, sharp pain, which worsens when the foot is flexed, and even the feeling of a bruise or a small rock in your shoe.
To alleviate this condition, we provide our patients with Sole Supports custom foot orthotics. These orthotics are specifically designed for your unique foot and can help to alleviate pain from many foot and ankle conditions.
