The ball of the foot is the section of the foot between your arch and toes. As you walk, your weight is shifted from your heel to the ball of your foot. If your body weight is not well aligned over the ball of your foot, pain and swelling of the area can occur.
As we age, we generally lose the fat pad underneath the ball of the foot, leading to abnormal pressure and shock to the area. People with extremely high arches or those who are overweight may also experience ball of foot pain.
"Therafit sneakers have the perfect arch support for plantar fasciitis sufferers. I wear them and recommend them to my patients."
