Soreness on ball of foot

Recommended Posts

Good Morning,

 

I am in week three of C25K and have soreness on the ball of my right foot.

I am resting in between days.

I have soaked in epson salt.

I have tried gel pads.

I am sure loosing a few pounds would help, which is the goal.

 

Approx 5 years ago I fractured the sesamoid bone in that foot and have hardware in my ankle from an accident 15 years prior.

Before I call to the podiatrist, does anyone have an suggestions or home remedies?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Ann

Pain under the ball of the foot is typically 'metatarsalgia'. Resting your foot on a cold compress will help a lot with easing the pain and drawing down any inflammation. Do this especially after being on your feet. All the best :)

Thanks for the suggestion, I will try that on a consistent basis and see if it help!

Any luck so far? Getting some of the pain under control? I went through the same thing so know what you are going through. Pain anywhere on the bottom of the feet is terrible.

I'm having the same issue with pain on the ball of my left foot all the way to my knee. Any recommendations on gel pads (brand)? Have you tried the metatarsal sleeve? Just wondering if it's worth purchasing. I'm on W2D2 but sidelined until my knee pain subsides

I posted a link awhile back on the products I used to treat my foot...but don't remember the thread. I'm always a little nervous of posting links, but I really do want the world to know, as it got me back walking without a limp. Here's info about metatarsalgia and what I used:  http://kingbrand.com/Metatarsalgia-Treatment.php?REF=46PV179.254

It took me a month and half and it's never come back :)  I used the ColdCure Foot wrap and BFST Wrist wrap (easier to wrap around that area of foot), and I taped it for 2-3 weeks. Wishing you all the best!
