What a cool name.
For the past six months or so, I've had this pain on the ball of my left foot. It hurts mainly when I'm in spin class, standing up in the pedals.
Never the right foot, which is odd. Went to the doctor a couple of months ago and he said that's what it was (but I since forgot the name). The problem has persisted and today my nurse friend Sam from spin class said he'd had it too--and recommended stretching the leg more. He offered some other ideas, which were helpful.
You have a problem with the ball of your foot? Stretch everything that leads to it, including the calf and hamstring. Whodathunk?!
