i had a stroke, and now the ball of my right foot is in pain all the time, what causes this to happen,i cant walk because of this pain,in want to be pain free and walk again
Hello and thank you for your question. Most ball of foot pain post-stroke is due to the change in pressure in the foot. Do you also have foot drop? If so then foot drop shifts more pressure and body weight to the ball of the foot. I would recommend seeing a Podiatrist who can guide you with footwear and other modalities for shifting body weight back to the heel. If you also have corns or calluses developing due to the shift in pressure this will increase the pain you experiencing. This is also something that can be addressed by a Podiatrist. I hope this helps!
