Predislocation metatarsal phalangeal joint: a painful condition located under the toe area by the ball of the foot. This is an area where a particular joint (usually below the second or third toe) can become inflamed and sore from the constant pounding of the foot. A hammertoe may also develop. This adds more pressure to that individual ball. A customized orthotic with an offloading U pad will shield this painful joint from trauma and allow it to heal.
