metatarsal support

Posted by Sandy W on 12/22/02 at 20:52 (103802)

where should metatarsal support fit? should it be under the metatarsal
heads or behind them. every time I have bought an insole with metataral
support in it, it sits directly under my metatarsal heads and can be
painful yet if i buy a smaller insole it doesn't seem to fit properly.

Hi Sandy...
The metatarsal supports should fit just proximal to the metatarsal heads. That is one of the problems with off the shelf inserts with added support in specific areas. They may or may not fit your foot...mostly not.
