article sheds some light on a common type of foot pain called
Metatarsalgia nike

 , more commonly known as Ball of Foot
Pain.

Metatarsalgia – Ball of Foot Pain

Pain in the balls of the
feet (Latin: Metatarsalgia) is a very common foot complaint, in particular for
women. Most women who wear high heels or tight fashion shoes (or who have done
so in the past) are likely to suffer from Metatarsalgia. Men can also suffer
from this condition, especially if they have to wear hard shoes or boots without
any cushioning inside, and their job requires standing or walking for prolonged
periods. For example workboots or militarypolice boots can easily cause ball of
foot pain.

What are the symptoms of Ball of Foot Pain?

People
suffering from Metatarsalgia often experience a burning sensation under the ball
of the foot. Sometimes combined with a sharp, tingling sensation near the toes
(this condition is called Morton's Neuroma, see further below). The pain can
also be stabbing pain that comes and goes throughout the day. In some cases
people experience a feeling similar to having a pebble sitting under the
forefoot.

Ball of Foot pain worsens when wearing high heelsfashion shoes
for a longer periods of time or, for men after walking long distances in hard
shoes. Typically people with Ball of Foot pain also display excessive callous
formation under the balls of their feet.

What causes
Metatarsalgia?

Typically, the two main causes for ball of foot pain
are:

- wearing high heelsfashion shoes

- over-pronation (fallen
arches)

Most (young) women like to look stylish and wear a shoe with a
medium to high heel. The problem with high heels is that your bodyweight is not
evenly distributed across the underside of the foot, but rather 80% of your
weight pushes down on only one area of the foot nike

 , the forefoot area. i.e. the balls of
your feet. This is totally unnatural and before long the entire forefoot
structure collapses, leading to constant pressure and friction in the ball of
the foot. The body reacts and builds up thick layers of callous in this area
which in turn leads to a burning sensation under the foot.

Also, as part
of the ageing process women tend to lose the bulk of the shock-absorbing
'fibro-fatty' pad under the ball of the foot. Without this natural padding pain
develops due to the pressure on skin over bone.

Another cause of Ball of
Foot Pain is over-pronation. Over-pronation (or excess pronation) occurs in a
lot of people, especially as they get older. The arches drop and feet and ankles
tend to roll inwards. Excessive pronation is a major contributing cause to heel
pain and heel spurs, but it also can lead to Metatarsalgia. As the longitidunal
arch collapses so does the transverse arch. The transverse arch is the arch that
runs across the forefoot and is formed by the 5 metatarsal bones. The bones in
the foot drop and the structure of the foot is severely weakened. When we wear
shoes that do not provide enough support and cushioning excess pressure is
placed on the ball of the foot and often pain is
experienced.

Over-pronation, combined with wearing hard, flat shoes and
walking on hard surfaces such as concrete, pavements, tiled floors etc often
leads to ball of foot pain nike

 , but also other common complaints
including aching legs, knee pain and lower back pain.

Treatment of Ball
of Foot Pain (Metatarsalgia)

For ladies' high heel and fashion shoes
there is a new, unique solution to ball of foot pain: Footlogics 'Catwalk.' New
from Spain these specially designed insoles restore our natural body balance by
supporting the longitundinal arch, as well as the metatarsal bones and they
shift bodyweight away from the forefoot towards the arch and heel. The result is
that your bodyweight is more evenly distributed over the entire surface of the
feet, and not just pushing into the balls of the feet. Thus, the insole prevents
excessive pressure and friction in the ball of the foot are, and greatly
reduceseliminates the pain and burning sensation under the feet – especially
with longer periods of standing or walking.

In case of regular flat
footwear – whereby Metatarsalgia is caused by over-pronation – a full-length
orthotic insoles with arch support as well as metatarsal support is recommended
to prevent and relieve pain the ball of the foot.

Removal of excess
callous by a Pedicurist, Chiropodist or Podiatrist is highly recommended to
relieve ball of foot pain. You can also remove hard skin and callous yourself by
means of daily light abrasion (using a pumice stone or fine grit foot
file).

Choose the right footwear..

Shoes that are very narrow in
the forefoot force the metatarsal bones together, pinching nerves and blood
vessels that run between the bones. Continued use of shoes that are too narrow
can cause one or more of the metatarsal bones to either shift up or down within
the transverse arch nike

 , causing the arch to completely
collapse.

On the other hand, shoes that are too wide can cause shearing
stress under the foot as it slides around, causing callus to build up under the
ball of the foot and under the toes. A narrow foot in a wide shoe will slide
forwards, causing compression and curling of the toes. By allowing your toes to
curl inside a shoe, you disturb the resting positions of your extensor and
flexor muscles. Over time, this can result in fatigue and even
cramp.

Thin soled shoes or shoes without any innersole cushioning will
transfer all the hard impact with man-made surfaces directly into the bones of
your feet, stimulating callous formation. So always buy shoes with plenty of
cushioning and support, or wear orthotics inside your shoes.
