Metatarsalgia is a condition in which the ball of your foot becomes painful and inflamed due to overintense physical activities like running and jumping


  • Sharp burning pain at the ball of the feet
  • A feeling of a pebble in the bottom of the leg
  • Pain worsens when running or walking


  • Intense training or physical activities
  • Certain foot shapes like high arch feet will put extra pressure on metatarsals.
  • Poorly fitted shoes such as high heels will put extra weight on the front of the leg
  • Excess Weights


  • Avoid too-tight or too-loose shoes and limit your wearing of high heels. Wear shoes appropriate to the sports you play

  • Orthotic devices such as custom made inserts or BODYFEET Level 2 Sports Kit to provide stability and cushioning to the foot and toes.
