Metatarsalgia - Metatarsal Pads

Metatarsalgia - Metatarsal Pads

Metatarsal pads are used to help extent your transverse arch, promote the return of your overextended toes to their normal body position, and encourage the return of your forefoot fat pad to its rightful position supporting your metatarsal heads. Your metatarsals are the long and thin bones in your mid-foot. The heads of your metatarsals are at the ball of foot, and they connect to the base of your toes. Metatarsal pads help properly realign your metatarsal heads and the fat pad that's underneath them. It can help straighten and realign your toes, especially when your metatarsal pads are used in conjunction with our toe-spacing product. Metatarsal pads, when properly sited within a completely flat shoe with a sufficiently wide toe box, can help undo muscle imbalance in your foot. Metatarsal pads help reconfigure your foot to the position that nature intended; that is, with splayed metatarsal heads, splayed toes, and a fat pad located directly underneath the fragile bones and nerves in the ball of foot. This foot shape can lead to a host of problems, including, but not limited to, Morton’s neuroma, sesamoiditis, and plantar fasciosis, or more simply: pain in the ball of your foot, heel, or both.
