Metatarsal pads are a staple of podiatry offices, used as a primary tool to treat forefoot pain or pain in the metatarsal area. PPT Metatarsal Pads can be placed inside shoes, or applied directly to the foot to support, comfort and protect metatarsal heads and shafts. Place the pad behind the ball of your foot to off-load weight bearing away from your forefoot.
