This is a general term used to describe pain under the ball of the foot. This usually occurs due to excessive forces occurring through one or more of the metatarsals during walking and running. A comprehensive biomechanical assessment of your lower limb and foot will be carried out before discussing the best treatment option with you. Treatment may include taping, orthotics, advice on footwear and exercises.
If you are making an appointment about a foot problem it is helpful if you bring in the shoes and sports footwear along with you to your first appointment.
