Do insoles help with Metatarsalgia?
Asked 2 years ago
Hi guys, I'm really struggling with the ball of foot pain at the moment, and I'm so over it. I'm looking for anything that can help. I recently learned about insoles and how they provide foot support. Does this mean they can help with Metatarsalgia too? If so, which can you recommend I use? Appreciated!

Yes, insoles can help with metatarsalgia.
However, because metatarsalgia has several causes, not every insole works well. If you're going to use an insole, make sure you're getting a custom insole. Custom insoles or orthotics factor in the underlying pathology of the metatarsalgia, making them more effective.
Because podiatrists design Upstep's custom insoles for metatarsalgia, you'll know that they're treating the root cause of your pain. Our metatarsalgia custom orthotics will help with your everyday activities and are a long-term solution.

Metatarsalgia can cause a real issue while running, walking or doing daily activities. But the use of insoles could play a support system if you are experiencing Metatarsalgia. An insole with met pad helps to distribute the pain equally, diminishing the total pain on the feet and it becomes easier to balance. If you are a runner with Metatarsalgia, then insoles with met pad can be a lifesaver.

The answer is yes! A personalized foot orthotic is advantageous in that it reduces pressure and loading to the smaller metatarsal heads, thus moving pressure back to the first (and biggest) metatarsal, where it belongs. Furthermore, the orthotic’s support of the foot arch and full contact with the entire bottom of the foot distributes pressure away from the afflicted metatarsals, minimizing tissue stress and allowing for healing. I would recommend trying Upstep orthotics. Apart from their good quality I like that their staff makes it hassle-free!

Yes, insoles help manage metatarsalgia. The best metatarsalgia insoles contain a metatarsalgia pad, e.g. Upstep insoles. These pads lift and support the transverse arch of the foot. With weight evenly distributed across the joints, the pressure on the ball of the foot reduces, causing foot pain to subside.

Yes, orthotic insoles can provide great relief from day to day symptoms of metertasalgia or pain in the forefoot area. Orthotics aims to redistribute the weight off the inflamed area of tissue and rather place it though the rest of the forefoot. Insoles also have shock absorbing qualities from the material that they are built out of and hence, can reduce some of the shock placed through the specific area that is causing you pain.
Orthotics can also be used in an effort to slow the progression of the condition down as you age and may prevent complications from arising in the future. Upstep have custom insoles specifically designed for Metatarsalgia and may be a cost effective and long term management stratergy to your pain. Insoles can be worn throughout a variety of shoes and can be used interchangeably. Visit Upstep.com for your orthotic needs.

Insoles can help with metatarsalgia. They redistribute pressure on the foot during walking, causing significant improvement in pain level and function. Unlike other custom insoles, Upstep insoles are well recommended. They are made of top-quality materials by the best professionals. Upstep insoles are also durable and inexpensive, like other custom orthotics.
