Forefoot pain relief

If you’re suffering from pain in the ball of your foot, or the wider forefoot area, it might be worth visiting a podiatrist for an assessment.

Get In Touch

At Kelso Foot Clinic, we see lots of this type of pain in patients. An examination and assessment of the problem leads to a variety of treatment options. Left untreated, the forefoot pain is likely to cause issues elsewhere in the body – interconnected body parts may start to compensate for the pain and, in doing so, store up further problems.

What causes forefoot pain?

Forefoot pain (often referred to as metatarsalgia) has lots of causes, mostly relating to too much force going through specific areas of the foot. A full assessment enables an accurate diagnosis and, as critically, a cause for the condition. The following problems result in forefoot pain:

Whatever the cause, it’s worth a discussion with a podiatrist and an assessment of the forefoot.

How does Kelso Foot Clinic treat this type of pain?

Our treatment focuses on getting a “normal loading” through the foot – i.e. to remove the pressure on the forefoot. We do this by changing footwear, orthotics (e.g. prescription insoles) and rehabilitation. The specifics of the treatment all come down to the precise diagnosis and analysis of the patient’s foot. In rare cases, we may refer you for surgery.
