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.
