Re: Ball of foot pain

The collagen injections are of a temporary nature, much like they would be anywhere else on the body. It would be an every 6 month event for maintanence, but it definately is a possibility. You must determine the exact cause of the ball of the foot pain and then address the cause. The collagen injection simply addresses the symptoms. If you have plantar fat atrophy, that is irreversible and like I stated before, collagen is a temporary and periodic treatment. If your matatarsals are plantarflexed and/or elongated, then the correct course of action would be metatarsal osteotomies for shortening/dorsiflexion. You should try exhausting all conservative measures before surgical, but surgery may be helpful in your situation.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
