Metatarsal pads may reduce pain by creating space in the forefoot

A Dutch study suggests that metatarsal pads relieve metatar­salgia pain by creating space between metatarsal heads in addition to reducing plantar pressure. Researchers from St. Maartens Clinic in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, performed motion analysis on 16 feet with primary metatarsalgia and 12 control feet as study participants walked with and without a metatarsal pad
