Oppo Medical Ball Of Foot Gel Pads support and help redistribute pressure on forefoot area and may be used to treat metatarsalgia.
Metatarsalgia is the result of pain and inflammation in the ball of the foot. That pain and inflammation can result from several factors, including regular participation in high impact sports that cause you to regularly land on the ground at high force. Track & field runners are usually the most common sufferers of the condition. However, athletes from other sports like football, tennis, baseball and soccer can often develop the condition.
You can also develop metatarsalgia from abnormalities in your gait or balance that result in an unnatural weight distribution. When this results in excessive forefoot pressure over a prolonged period, metatarsalgia can result.
Excessive forefoot pressure can also result from frequently wearing certain types of footwear, such as ballet or high heeled shoes.
