The use of a complete insole is not necessary in many occasions; depending on the disease the patient suffers, h/she will need a specific product. Thus, Herbi Feet offers a great variety of pads, which protect the metatarsal sensible area located in the forefoot where receive all pressure.
The feet have a natural fat pad that absorbs impacts and supports the inner area of the metatarsal. Without these pads, the front of the metatarsal area would receive strong impacts from walking, jumping or running which would cause pain. Age and repetitive use can wear down this fat pad, which can cause pain in the metatarsal area called Metatarsalgia.
Pads are address to women that use high heels to avoid burning sensation. Moreover, you can use these pads when you are going to long walks or when a person still stand lot of time. This product will provide you a comfort feeling and you may use it with party shoes or sandals, since these pads are non-slip.
Differences between an insole and a cup
In addition to age, there are other causes for metatarsal pain. Some of them are arthritis, joint irritation, ligament injuries, Morton’s Neuroma, Tarsiano Tunnel Syndrome and excess pressure on the foot for long periods.
Poorly fitting shoes (too narrow toe, too high heels or too flat soles) may also be the cause. In fact, the latter are the most common causes of metatarsal pain. Therefore, the footwear you choose and the extra support you can place under your feet can go a long way toward preventing foot pain.
To prevent and treat this pain, you can choose whole insoles or pads. The main difference between them is that the former protect the entire sole of the foot, while the latter focus their action on the front of the foot to treat pain in the metatarsal.
