Ball of foot pain

Limping out of bed in the morning? Walking barefoot causing pain? Not comfortable in shoes?

The “ball of the foot” includes a complex and delicate arrangement of joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and small arteries and veins – all of which are vulnerable to injury.

Common causes of pain in the ball of the foot include:

 -Strain of the plantar plate

- Mortons Neuroma, an enlarged inflamed nerve

-Arthritis of a joint

-stress fracture

-osteoporotic fracture

The good news is that pain in the ball of the feet is often simply managed with podiatry treatment, without the need for surgery. When you make an appointment at the Active Foot Clinic your podiatrist will assess your pain, diagnose your condition, analyse your foot posture, footwear and walking pattern. They will be looking for any underlying problems or contributing factors. Your podiatrist can also refer for x-rays or ultrasounds if required, however a diagnosis can generally be reached at your appointment. We will then discuss treatment options and can start straight away

.So stop suffering in silence with pain in the balls of your feet, and see your Active Foot Clinic podiatrist to walk without pain.
