I have had significant pain in the ball of my right foot (beneath the big toe) for several years. It seemed to be caused by overuse from playing tennis. It gets better after resting it, but then I dont get to play! It got so bad, that I would have to walk with the weight on the outside of my foot, which can't be good for the knee, etc.
I had an x-ray done which showed no break, but the doctor only said the sesamoids were in need of rest. I have thin feet, without a lot of extra meat on them, so that made it worse.
I tried these 1/8 inch pads over the last 2 weeks, and I can say that they help take the pressure off the ball of my foot really well!!
If I position them right, I don't feel pressure from the pounding, and I am back to playing tennis without having to worry about how I step. The adhesive is strong and I find I only have to wash them every 2-3 days to bring back the stickiness. I am happy with the product!
