Our team at Blue Mountains Podiatry provide care for sufferers of ball of foot pain near State Mine Gully and the surrounding communities.
Metatarsalgia is a broad umbrella term to describe an array of conditions that cause pain in the ball of the foot (under your foot just before the toes). Pain in the ball of the foot can be debilitating to the point where it can stop you performing basic activities or sports. It is very common as the ball of the foot is under constant, excessive pressure for long periods of time. Morton’s neuroma, flexor plate dysfunction, capsulitis, bursitis and osteo arthritis are often conditions that cause pain in the ball of the foot.
Ball of foot pain is often caused by poor fitting or inappropriate footwear, high impact sports, poor foot mechanics (the way someone is walking), being overweight, a reduction of the fatty pad at the ball of the foot and walking on uneven or rocky ground.
At Blue Mountains Podiatry we are experts in diagnosing, managing and treating conditions that can cause pain in the ball of the foot and getting you back on your feet, pain free.
Here at Blue Mountains Podiatry, we see patients every day with ball of foot pain and our expert therapists have a proven track record in getting the best outcomes for all our patients. A thorough initial examination will identify the precise source of your pain, which will be accompanied by the most up to date biomechanical analysis using our state of the art 3d technology to identify any contributing factors to your condition. Our goal is to remove your pain as opposed to providing a band aid, quick fix solution.
