Do you notice clicking in the ball of your foot? Pain into your toes at all?
The clicking you feel in the ball of your foot may not just be that from the joints! People who suffer from a condition called a neuroma may often feel a clicking sensation between the bones in the ball of the foot. This clicking is sometimes associated with pain in the ball of the foot or even burning/tingling or sharp-shooting pains into the toes. Neuromas can often be treated successfully with conservative treatment, but this is most successful if treated quickly after the onset of symptoms.
A couple things to try before your visit - 1.) Wear supportive shoes at all times for a few days, 2.) Ice the area of your foot that click/hurts, for 10 minutes a few times each day, 3.) Avoid high heels and shoes with a narrow toebox (ie. refer to #1!)
If the clicking and/or pain does not resolve in a week or two, schedule a visit for an evaluation! Our doctors will evaluate you and help you to fully understand your condition and recommended treatments.
