Basic Metatarsal Domes
The Basic Metatarsal Domes are adhesive backed and can be applied to a range of orthotics to help reduce pain in the metatarsal area. The metatarsal domes are available in a pack of two domes and a pack of 10 domes, and can be stuck to insoles or orthotics for ongoing use.
The Basic Metatarsal Domes are available in the following options:
The pack of two domes allows you to try out the domes in the footwear of your choice. However, if you wish to use the domes in multiple pairs of shoes, then we would recommend the pack of 10 domes, as the adhesive backing means that they are not designed for moving between footwear. Your required choice can be selected from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
Who Can Benefit from Wearing the Basic Metatarsal Domes?
Those suffering with foot conditions such as metatarsal pain and Morton's neuroma could benefit from the effective pressure relief these domes provide when placed under the metatarsal area (middle of the ball of foot area). The conditions for which these domes are suitable is as follows:
- Metatarsal bursitis
- Morton's neuroma
- Realignment of lesser digits
Where Should I Apply the Metatarsal Supports?
These metatarsal supports should be placed at the front of your metatarsal area, just behind your toe joints. The flatter edge should be positioned just behind your metatarsal heads at the ball of your foot, with the tapered edge resting at the beginning of your arch and pointing towards your heel. The diagram below shows a general guide that will vary based on your insoles and foot shape.
