The ball of the foot absorbs a huge amount of pressure from walking, working, and exercising. All that stress can damage the metatarsal bones and sensitive tissues causing a condition called metatarsalgia. Other conditions like neuroma and capsulitis have similar symptoms, so be sure to contact your foot doctor for the proper diagnosis and treatment.
