Re: Pain in 4th Metatarsal Head after Great Toe fusion

While it is possible your weight shift has caused the pain in the 4th metatarsal, it would be more appropriate to see x-rays and observe your gait in and out of shoes.

There are options including different orthotics, braces, surgery and padding.

You should see a podiatrist for further evaluation

This slip-on device is a soft and stretchable Nylon/Lycra® fabric molded with a proprietary gel pad to protect the entire Achilles tendon of the foot by absorbing pressure and friction resulted from rubbing with the surface of the shoe.
