Cause: Compression of forefoot nerves


Appearance: Pain in the forefoot, tingling, burning, pain with compression of the forefoot. Pain in tight shoes. Feeling like a ball is under your foot.



Treatment: Orthotics, rest, ice, wider shoes, padding. Cortisone injections are helpful if the athlete is a candidate. Surgery may be necessary in some cases-this typically entails removing the affected nerve.


Long-term prognosis: Once the inflammation is treated, pain typically resolves. Orthotics and wide shoes will help prevent flare-ups.
