Ball of Foot Pain – Metatarsalgia – Foot Burning Sensation

Ball of Foot Pain – Metatarsalgia – Foot Burning Sensation

Ball of Foot Pain is Often Caused by Wearing High Heels
or Long Periods Standing Without Proper Support
Metatarsalgia - Ball of Foot PainPain under the ball of the foot (Metatarsalgia) is a common complaint with women wearing high-heeled shoes, as well as men wearing work boots or other hard shoes while standing for long periods. Pain in this area of the foot may also occur when wearing hard shoes without any cushioning inside, such as work boots.

What causes Ball of Foot Pain?
High Heels Cause Ball of Foot PainBall of Foot Pain occurs frequently when wearing high-heeled shoes, which cause our weight to be unevenly distributed across our feet, putting undue pressure on the metatarsals (forefoot bones). As a result, these bones drop, the surrounding ligaments weaken, and the entire forefoot structure collapses. This in turn leads to excess pressure and friction under the ball of the foot. The key reason for this problem is that when wearing high heels, most of our body weight is resting on the forefoot area.

Footminders(R) Catwalk Orthotics Relieve Pressure on the Forefoot When Wearing High Heels
Footminders Catwalk Orthotics were especially designed to support the foot arches in just the right places to relieve the excess pressure on the forefoot caused by wearing high-heeled shoes.

Ball of Foot Pain with Normal Shoes
Ball of Foot pain can also occur when wearing normal footwear, especially during long walks or standing for longer periods of time. This type of ball-of-foot pain can be treated with a full-length orthotic such as podiatry-designed Footminders Comfort, which features a metatarsal raise to help alleviate the pressure and friction in the ball of the foot.

Orthotics with metatarsal support

Metatarsalgia Symptoms
Metatarsalgia is often described as a burning sensation in the ball of the foot, often combined with excess callous forming. The pain worsens when wearing high heels or tight fashion shoes for longer periods of time.

Recommended orthotics for Ball of Foot pain: Footminders Catwalk insoles for ladies fashion shoes or Footminders Comfort insoles for other footwear.

Treatment and relief
For high heel wearers there's now a great new product on the market called Footminders Catwalk. Footminders Catwalk Orthotic Insoles restore biomechanical balance by supporting the arch, as well as the metatarsal bones.

This means that your bodyweight is distributed more evenly over the entire foot, instead of just on the forefoot. In turn, Catwalk insoles prevent excessive pressure and friction in the ball of the foot. As a result there's a reduction of foot pain and the associated burning sensation - especially with longer periods of standing or walking.

Foot Pain Symptoms

Spinal Causes of Foot Pain Video
While there may be many causes of foot pain, it is important to note that not all foot pain originates in the toes or in the front or back of the foot, nor does it necessarily develop because of some injury or trauma to the foot.

What may come as a surprise is that many types of pain in the foot may have nothing to do with the foot or the leg, but rather a problem in the lower back.

However, patients that have foot pain due to a pinched nerve in the low back will generally have a good deal of leg pain associated with the foot pain. It would be very rare to have isolated foot pain due to a problem in the low back without any leg pain. Foot pain without associated leg pain is usually due to a problem localized to the foot itself.
See Leg Pain and Numbness: What Might These Symptoms Mean?Article continues below
For example, if a nerve root in the lower back is irritated or compressed, this low back condition, which may or may not cause any actual ow back pain, can cause pain to radiate along the sciatic nerve and into the foot.

Common Foot Pain Symptoms Related to the Lower Back
Depending on the lower back diagnosis, specific types of foot pain symptoms and other symptoms may include:
Restricted ability to bring the foot up (heel walk). This specific symptom is characterized by an inability to bring the foot upward and may be accompanied by numbness in the middle lower leg and foot. Heel walk may occur if one of the spinal nerve roots in the lower back that innervates the sciatic nerve is affected. See Sciatic Nerve and SciaticaFoot heaviness or weakness (foot drop). Often originating from a spinal nerve root in the lower back, foot drop refers to a weak or heavy feeling that makes it difficult or impossible to flex the ankle and bring the front of the foot up. Foot drop due to a L5 nerve root problem will usually also produce pain that radiates down the outside of the calf and over the top of the foot to the big toe.See What is Foot Drop?Difficulty walking on tiptoes. Bottom of foot pain may occur if the sciatic nerve's S1 spinal nerve root is affected. Typical symptoms of pain in the bottom of the foot may include weakness in the gastonemius muscle, making it hard to walk on the tiptoes, raise the heel off the ground, or even complete everyday activities like walking or driving.

Bunionette (Tailor's Bunion) - Patient Education - Orthogate

Bunionette (Tailor's Bunion) - Patient Education - Orthogate

What should I expect after treatment?

Nonsurgical Rehabilitation
Patients with a painful bunionette may benefit from four to sixphysical therapy treatments. Your therapist can offer ideas of shoesthat have a wide forefoot, or toe box. The added space in thispart of the shoe keeps the metatarsals from getting squeezed inside theshoe. A special pad can also be placed over the bunionette.

These simple changes to your footwear may allow you to resume normalwalking immediately, but you should probably cut back on more vigorousactivities for several weeks to allow the inflammation and pain tosubside.

Treatments directed to the painful area help control pain andswelling. Examples include ultrasound, moist heat, and soft-tissuemassage. Therapy sessions sometimes include iontophoresis,which uses a mild electrical current to push anti-inflammatory medicineto the sore area. This treatment is especially helpful for patients whocan't tolerate injections.

After Surgery
Patients are usually fitted with a post-op shoe. This shoehas a stiff, wooden sole that protects the toes by keeping the footfrom bending. Any pins are usually removed after the bone begins tomend (usually three or four weeks). You will probably need crutchesbriefly after surgery, and a therapist may be consulted to help you useyour crutches.

You will probably wear a bandage or dressing for about a weekfollowing the procedure. The stitches are generally removed in 10 to 14days. However, if your surgeon chose to use sutures that dissolve, youwon't need to have the stitches taken out.

During your follow-up visits, X-rays will probably be taken so thatthe surgeon can follow the healing of the bones and determine how muchcorrection has been achieved.

Bunions develop when the pressures of bearing and shifting your weight fall unevenly on the joints and tendons in your feet. This imbalance in pressure makes your big toe joint unstable, eventually molding the parts of the joint into a hard knob that juts out beyond the normal shape of your foot.

Experts disagree on whether tight, high-heeled or too-narrow shoes cause bunions or whether footwear simply contributes to bunion development. Other causes include:
Inherited foot typeFoot injuriesDeformities present at birth (congenital)
Bunions may be associated with certain types of arthritis, particularly inflammatory types, such as rheumatoid arthritis. An occupation that puts extra stress on your feet or one that requires you to wear pointed shoes also can be a cause.
