Orthotics Designed for Ball of Foot Discomfort
Discomfort in the Ball-of-foot area can be caused by improperly fitting footwear, shoes with narrow toe box areas, or even from wearing flip flops or high heels. This can inhibit the walking process and lead to extreme discomfort. Excessive pressure over time can result in a condition called metatarsalgia, where one or more metatarsals become inflamed.
Aetrex orthotics are available with built in metatarsal pads to help unload pressure at the metatarsal area while providing the cushioning and shock absorption needed to quickly help relieve the discomfort.
