WHAT IS METATARSALGIA?
Metatarsalgia is a foot condition in which the ball of your foot becomes painful and inflamed. It commonly develops from activities that involve running or jumping. It can also result from wearing shoes that are too tight or too loose.
Fortunately, at-home treatments, such as ice and rest, often relieve symptoms. Also wearing proper footwear with shock-absorbing insoles or arch supports might prevent or minimize future issues.
What Causes Metatarsalgia?
The most frequent cause of metatarsalgia is participating in sports activities that put pressure on the metatarsal bones at the front of your foot. These activities typically involve running and jumping.
Other causes of metatarsalgia include wearing the wrong size shoes, frequent wearing of high-heeled shoes, and being overweight, which causes more pressure on the ball of your foot.
How Pedors Can Help you

The seamless stretchable material of the Pedors Classic and Pedors Classic Max are perfect for those with painful feet.
The Pedors 3P Inserts are designed to even out pressure, which helps to reduce hot spots and pressure points. They also help those needing arch support, and those with plantar fasciitis, heel pain, metatarsalgia, alignment, and stability.

What are Good Orthopedic Shoes?
One of the common questions that we are often asked is…what is the best type of shoe for swollen and painful feet? Typically, feet tend to swell more as the day progresses so it is essential that the shoes have adjustability. Laces can be adjusted, however most people don’t want the hassle of tying and re-trying shoes several times a day. By far the easiest option is to purchase shoes with adjustable touch closure straps, typically referred to as Velcro straps.
