For pains due essentially to Morton’s neuroma syndrome and to median metatarsalgia.

Pains due to a forefoot nerve compression between two joints.

Pains linked to metatarsal heads.

The METASTAR insoles are particularly effective to relieve these two types of pain associated to the biomechanical foot disorders.

They are designed in half insoles with a latex foam element behind the second, the third and the fourth metatarsal.

For the Morton’s neuroma

The special support provided by the insole forces a curve on the metatarsal bones which increases the space between metatarsal and therefore it releases the pressure from the sensitive nerve of the toes (see the sketch under Pathologies)

For median metatarsalgia

Here too, the role of the support is crucial as it is placed directly behind the metatarsal bones in order to lift them so that it releases the pressure of the press and hold on the ground of the painful area (see the sketch under Pathologies)

Concerned pathologies

  • Morton’s neuroma

    Extremely acute pain, felt while standing or while walking, generally located at the second and/or third intermetatarsal space (at the base of the toes). These pains are generated by the compression of the sensitive nerve which innervates the toes.

    Its origin is mechanical and it gets worse by wearing shoes too narrow and heels too high.

    One solution and among the most efficient to erase the pain is to give enough space to the intermetatarsal space.

    Morton’s neuroma

    The simple solution to eliminate theses pains, efficient, immediate, without side effects and non invasive is to spread enough the intermetatarsal space. It is the role of Support Retro Median Capital of the insoles METASTAR. Due to its special shape it is slipped under the metatarsal heads and lifts them in an arc of circle which gives enough space between the inter-metatarsal joints.

    In order to be relieved you must wear the METASTAR insoles specific for this type of pains.

     

  • Median Metatarsalgia

    The pains are generated by the hyper pressure at the base of the joints for the second, third or/and fourth toe.

    This flexing zone of the foot is highly stressed while walking or running and often complained about.

    Median Metatarsalgia

    The causes may be due to:

    A decrease in the thickness of the footpad with age;

    Fat pad under the foot helping to shock absorption

    when too much pressure;

    Excessive pressure zone due to the weight of the body

    On one or several claw toes or hammer toes;

    On a callus;

    Thickening and hardening of the skin

    due to heels too high.

    This type of pain is easily relieved by wearing the METASTAR insoles thanks to their Support Retro Median Capital.

    In order to enhance the beneficial effect of the insoles we recommend you as well to wear flat shoes or with heels not higher than 2 cm with wide forefoot.

    You will quickly find that the pain will fade and disappear completely in a few days.

  • Callus

    It is an excessive production of skin which causes the thickness of the dermis as a reaction to a pressure or a repeated friction.  

    It is a reaction of the body to a constraint. Callus diagram located under second, third and fourth metatarsal head

    This result can be beneficial and protective when spread on the entire surface of the foot sole, while walking barefoot for instance.

    However when concentrated and located on one point, the callus is uncomfortable and painful like a pebble in a shoe.

    It looks like a yellowish disc on the surface of the skin and its size varies depending on the pressure zone.   

    Its center is the thickest.

    If suffering from diabetes ask a pedicure specialist to monitor the callus. 

    In order to relieve the pain caused by a callus on the second, third and or fourth metatarsal heads (just behind the joints of the toes) you must wear the insoles METASTAR which will insolate the callus from all pressure and reorganize the press and hold on the ground.

  • The hyper pressure

    It corresponds to an area of excessive pressure under the second, the third and the fourth metatarsal Plantar footprint with hyper pressureheads (just behind the toes joint).

    This hyper pressure may be the result of:

    -a reduction of the footpad (fat pad under the foot which helps to cushion)

    -a distortion of the bone structure

    -changes in the press and hold on the ground

    -or wearing shoes with heels too high

    The skin reacts by thickening at the hyper pressure level. It can be seen on a footprint made by a podograph.

    With time, if nothing is done, this area may become painful. It could even become a callus.

    If suffering from diabetes ask a pedicure specialist to monitor any hyper pressure. 

    In order to relieve one or several hyper pressures located on the second, the third and or fourth metatarsal heads, you should wear the insoles METASTAR. They will reorganize the press and hold points on the ground and relieve that area of any pressure.

  • Claw or hammer toes

    It is a common disease affecting essentially women.

    Wearing shoes with heels too high and a forefoot too tight has a big responsibility in this biomechanical disorder of the foot.

    It is a distortion of the toe in claw shape due to a muscle-tendon retraction.

    It concerns mostly the second, the third and fourth toe.

    This retraction of the toes causes painful conflicts inside the shoe on the prominent areas over the inter phalangeal joints and sometimes also on the extremities of the toes. These areas of friction will help privilege the appearance of callus and the pains that accompany them. (If suffering from diabetes ask a pedicure specialist to monitor the callus or calluses).

    In order to stop the evolution of the claw toe and avoid the deformations of the joints, you should react upon first visible signs of deformation or upon first appearance of pains.

    Support Retro Median Capital (SRMC) of the insoles METASTAR will press on the tendons to relax and help the extension of the toes. Once the points of friction are eliminated the pain will disappear.

    Priority should be given to shoes made of soft leather which offer wideness and volume to the forefoot as well as heels of about 2 cm high.
