(Ball of foot pain)

Also known as ball of the foot pain, is a type of pain and inflammation that occurs in a part of the foot known as the metatarsal (ball of foot). It often occurs in the metatarsal heads - where the three middle toes meet the ball of the foot.

Metatarsalgia is the most common case of foot related injuries that we see here at Modpod.
