Dr Blake's comment: Definitely metatarsal pads are a direct help by off weighting. Daily ice massage for 5 minutes 3 times is helpful. Try to purchase some single loop Budin splints to immobilize the 2 and/or 2/3 Metatarsal Joints. Also try to off weight the sore area with 1/8th inch adhesive felt you can purchase from www.mooremedical.com.
