Dropped Metatarsals

Do you have a dropped metatarsal?  You would know because your foot would hurt.  Normally it hurts on the bottom of your foot.  This issue is a bigger issue for woman than men and I think that is because of high heels, which put the foot in an unnatural position.  The metatarsal is the bone that attaches to the toes.  The bone is long and thin.  When the bottom of the foot hurts, in the ball of the foot, it is often a dropped metatarsal.

If you have this condition someway regularly, you might want to go to Rite Aid or Walgreens or a good quality shoe store and see if they have a metatarsal pad that will help. You put it under you’re the ball of your foot and it supports the metatarsal.  That is certainly a lot better than having pain.  They are inexpensive and can really be helpful.  Try one if you need it!
