Metatarsal Injuries

Metatarsal injuries can be a result of a few different conditions, including a stress fracture, wearing poorly fitting footwear, or even increasing your activity level. With any soft tissue injury, one of the most important things you can do to help yourself heal is rest. Applying cold compression will also be a big help in reducing your pain and inflammation.

Metatarsalgia is most commonly felt as pain and inflammation in the ball of the foot, otherwise known as the spot on your foot between the toes and the arch of the foot. For those of us who may have work, or other obligations, it can be difficult to take enough time to rest, and this can make your healing progress very slow going. It’s easy to get stuck in a cycle of reinjury because walking puts pressure on the metatarsals, and keeps your injury inflamed and aggravated.

If you have to keep moving while you are dealing with a metatarsal injury, King Brand Healthcare Products are the best solution to speed up your healing process. These hospital grade, FDA-approved products are proven to heal the soft tissue and reduce your pain. One of the most important things you can do to prevent aggravating your metatarsal injury more is to use KB Tape to support your foot during the day, and even during sleep if you tend to wake up with pain. This tape has adhesive on one side of it, which helps it to hold the skin together and form an “armor” for your injury, as well as giving you support and stabilization when walking.

The importance of healthy, oxygenated blood flow cannot be understated when it comes to healing completely. King Brand’s medical device, called the BFST (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy), is designed to increase your circulation by producing electromagnetic energy that stimulates more blood flow. The BFST has helped thousands of people to heal from soft tissue injuries, and by using it 3-4 times a day for 20 minutes each time, it can heal metatarsalgia and help you get your life and normal activities back.
