Dropped Metatarsals is when the metatarsal head lies at a lower level than the surrounding metatarsals and protrude from the bottom of the foot. This results in more pressure being applied in this area and causes a thick callus to form.
Patients usually complain of pain directly under the affected metatarsal at the location of the callus, made worse by prolonged periods of standing or activity. This pain is described initially as an ache, but can get more painful with continued thickening of the callus.
Doctors Foot Labs will provide relief of pain from this syndrome by making a pair of custom orthotics specifically for your feet.
