The Health health section of the SLO Motion Shoes library offers information on different topics of interest presented by the San Luis Podiatry Group Podiatrists and Pedorthists. 

Intermetatarsal Neuroma

Intermetatarsal Neuromas are associated with acute sharp pain to the bottom of the foot and are most commonly seen between the 2nd and 3rd metatarsal bones or between 3rd and 4th metatarsal bones.

Peroneal Tendonitis

Peroneal Tendonitis is associated with pain to the outside region of the foot and ankle following the course of the peroneal tendons. Peroneal Tendonitis is most commonly seen in people with history of ankle sprains and people with Pes Cavus, or high arch.


Metatarsalgia causes the ball of the foot to be inflamed and experience pain. One of the main causes of metatarsalgia is the reduction of the forefoot’s natural fat pad. This reduction in protection leaves the foot vulnerable to different types of injuries.
