insole with metatarsal pad

What is metatarsalgia?

The metatarsals are the five bones that connect the middle of your foot to tát your toes. The points at which the metatarsals meet the phalanges (toe bones) are known as the metatarsal heads; you can think of them lượt thích the first knuckles of your feet. They’re right above the fleshy pad of the ‘ball’ of your foot. This area is particularly susceptible to tát extra strain and pressure that can cause inflammation and pain commonly referred to tát as metatarsalgia. There are multiple possible causes, from biomechanical issues, specific foot shapes and problems with weight distribution, to tát wearing tight shoes that cramp metatarsal heads where blood vessels and nerves are squeezed and constricted. Another common cause is when your second toe is longer than vãn your big toe, putting extra stress on your second metatarsal. People who play high impact sports and runners are particularly at risk, as their feet take a lot of strain in their regular routine.

So what’s the solution?

You can get relief from metatarsalgia by adding a metatarsal (met) pad to tát your footwear. A met pad supports the metatarsals in their natural position and spacing, preventing them from becoming cramped, especially in the metatarsal heads. It also helps to tát promote the natural positioning of the padding under the ball of your foot, optimizing your natural shock-absorbing tissue to tát prevent your feet from absorbing excess stress. Lastly, a met pad helps to tát ensure that pressure is efficiently distributed and that no one point of your foot is carrying more weight than vãn it can handle. One option for met pads is to tát add supportive insoles that include a met pad to tát your footwear. Supportive insoles help the feet carry the load and distribute pressure evenly, offering relief to tát people who suffer from metatarsalgia as well as plantar fasciitis or other foot injuries. Runners with metatarsalgia are particularly likely to tát benefit from supportive insoles with metatarsal pads as they will also help promote a neutral alignment and maximize biomechanical efficiency through each stride.

Our customers say it best:

 “Recently I developed a Metatarsal injury on my left foot. I went through the routine of resting, icing and stretching without success. I thought for sure that I would have to tát take an extended time off from running. I tried various inserts to tát provide more protection for the foot. I even had a custom insert made by an orthopedic doctor. None of these attempts provided the protection I needed. On a visit to tát my local Performance Footwear running store, I noticed the SOLE display. I thought I had to tát give them a try. Not only did SOLE Custom Footbeds allow mạ to tát resume my normal training routine, it also allowed my metatarsal to tát recover and I am now pain miễn phí once again.” - John, Verified purchaser.
