Ball of Foot Pain

How can I treat my ball of foot pain?

To help find ball of foot pain relief:

  • Rest:

    By reducing stress on the ball of your foot, you can prevent further injury. Replacing high-impact activities with low-impact exercises, such as cycling and swimming, may help your feet to recover.

  • Apply ice:

    Apply several times a day for 20 minutes at a time.

  • Wear comfortable, supportive shoes:

    Choose a shoe that is supportive of your lifestyle and activity level.

  • Use shock-absorbing insoles:

    These insoles can help to reduce shock and lessen pain.

  • Try arch supports:

    If you are finding insoles are not helping your pain, arch supports may help by minimizing the stress on the balls of your feet.

  • Use over-the-counter pain relievers, as needed.
