Metatarsal pads were created to make your feet feel better! Specifically, a metatarsal pad, or met pad for short, is used to help support your transverse arch (this is the arch that runs widthwise across your forefoot located right below the ball of your foot). This will help place your forefoot in a natural resting position while supporting the heads of your metatarsal bones.
Metatarsal pads are often recommended by podiatrists for those suffering from Metatarsalgia, Morton's Neuroma, Sesamoiditis, and Arthritis of the foot. It's also a great product for those who are wearing high heels a lot more than they should and feel pain and burning in the ball of their foot. Metatarsal pads are typically made using rubber, felt, or foam.Full Story
