My son is 14 5-11, extremeley flat-footed. He is involved with a very competitive AAU basketball team. Recently, he has developed persistent pain in the ball of the right foot (on the right side of the first metatarsal head). There is a callus there. His podiatrist says there was almost certainly an injury and that it will heal by itself. (My son recalls no injury but that it was first noticeable after a Bball game.) But after resting for four weeks and taking 1200 IB and icing twice per day, he resumed moderate exercise and the pain returned immediately.

It appears to me to be a chronic problem related to his gait and over-pronation. are we missing something and what else can we do?
