Hello everyone I’m trying to better understand the biomechanics of a metatarsal pad. What I understand: Using a metatarsal pad for a MPJ capsulitis or plantar plate injurie: you will place the metatarsal pad proximal to the are of maximum tenderness? This way you will increase the GRF at the metatarsal neck and decrease it at the MPJ level
See the original article here:
Can a metatarsal stress fracture be caused by a metatarsal pad?
