Leave Your Ball of the Foot Pain Behind

With so many entertainment options in the city, it would be a shame to let ball of foot pain and sore feet keep you from enjoying fantastic local programs like Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art. Giving Dallas, TX residents and visitors a real treat every third Friday of the month, the DMA stays open until midnight and offers concerts, readings, performances, tours, film screenings, and more. It gets better, though: there’s no museum entry charge! (Well, some exhibitions do require an admission ticket.)

In spite of the amazing price tag for the experience, you likely will not feel inclined to take a trip to the DMA when you are living with forefoot pain that accompanies metatarsalgia. This condition has an array of causes, including:


For a majority of cases, conservative treatment proves to be rather effective for dealing with this ailment. Some tips to help are:

  • Walking Can Aggravate Foot PainResting your foot and avoiding stress that can lead to further injury. This will likely mean giving up running and various other sports for a while, but you can use the time to start low-impact activities like cycling or swimming. Once you are at full health, keep the low-impact exercises as part of your routine for injury prevention and greater overall fitness.
  • Arch supports, especially custom-prepared orthotics from our office, can help reduce stress on your metatarsal bones.
  • Shoes that offer adequate support and are intended for your stride, foot type, and the physical activities you perform can help with this condition.
  • Let our foot specialists provide extra cushioning for your sore feet with the use of injectable dermal fillers to protect them. We will determine the cause of your pain and discomfort and evaluate if this option can help.  If so, we use FDA-approved biodegradable fillers to enhance your natural conditioning. This therapy can provide help for potentially up to one year, without posing the risk of major complications.
