A wider ball of foot pad (aka metatarsal pad or metatarsal cookie) to help alleviate pressure across the entire ball of the foot. Also great for helping to prevent the foot from slidng forward in shoes. Self-adhesive backing allows the pad to stay securely in place. The metatarsal pads are approximately 2.25 inches at their widest and 2.75 inches in length. Metatarsal pads are used for a variety of foot problems like pain in the ball of the fee, neuromas, calluses, IPks, Painful scars, and lack of a plantar fat pad. Metatarsal pads splay and offload the metatarsal heads. This reduces the pressure across the ball of the foot and in the nerves between the metatarsal heads. The metatarsal pad has little less bulk making a little better tolerated while the non-skived cut offers a little more effect. Proper placement of the pad is critical to achieve the therapeutic relief from any of the above conditions. Metatarsal pads can be placed in the insole, under the insole or directly on the foot.
