Ball Of Foot Pain
The ball of the foot is the padded section just before your toes but before the arch rises. There are multiple problems that can affect this area of foot, but ball of foot pain occurs when pressure or too much weight is applied to the area.
Ball of foot pain can occur because of the shape of your feet. For example, you are more likely to suffer from ball of foot pain if you have smaller toes and high arches. This is because impact from walking or physical activity is focused on the ball of the foot more than usual. Ball of foot pain is often emphasised after exercise; this can indicate that you are wearing incorrect and unsupportive footwear for physical activity.
