Forefoot pain

Do you suffer with pain under the ball of your foot?  This is referred to as metatarsalgia and can have several causes.  One major cause is the loss of fat pad under our foot knuckles (Metatarsal heads.  This causes excessive pressure on the underlaying bony prominences and pain.  Sometimes there is heavy callus buildup.  Dr Hugo may be able to relieve this pressure using a dermal filler that effectively pads out over the bony area.  Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the body and is the main ingredient of this filler. Results can last up to 12 months.  See Dr Burke Hugo for all your options relating to foot pain.  Call 93824800, or
