Why You Have Forefoot Pain

Metatarsalgia, Morton’s neuroma, or just an undiagnosed achiness under the ball of your foot just below your toes…this is one of those running injuries that can hang around for a long time.

Most often, runners find they can keep running if they wear cushioned shoes, but there’s no denying it nags, niggles, and holds you back. In some cases the pain is more severe and interrupts your running.

Occasionally runners develop this problem by stepping on something sharp or hard, but most of the time it’s an overuse injury that just gradually comes on.

But how?

Usually runners who develop this problem are already running in cushioned shoes, and even though the pressure of the forefoot against the ground hurts, there’s too much cushioning for that movement to be the original cause.

In this video I explain the most common movement cause of runner’s forefoot pain. In order to recover fully from this problem it’s essential that you address this movement issue!
