Varying in intensity, pain in the ball of the foot can be excruciating, particularly when walking or running. This pain, often referred to as metatarsalgia, can be caused by an imbalance between the metatarsals, which are the long bones between your toes and rearfoot that evenly distribute weight. Metatarsal pain ranges from aching and burning to numbness and shooting pains, and can become unbearable if ignored.

If you suffer from Metatarsalgia, or pain in the ball of the foot, you're no doubt aware of how debilitating and frustrating it can be. Since the metatarsal region of the foot is so important for overall movement, suffering from this condition can not only hurt your enjoyment of walking, but it can hurt your motivation to get up and move, leading to overall decreases in your physical health. Whether you experience sharp and shooting pains, numbness and tingling in the toes, or just overall pain in the ball of the foot, Metatarsalgia is no fun, and needs to be dealt with.

Metatarsal pain is pain and/or inflammation which are usually centred on and around the ball of the foot. This is also known as Metatarsalgia, and usually involves the metatarsal arch (the bones which make up our toes) collapsing or falling out of balance, putting more pressure on the ball of your foot.
