If you suffer from brachymetatarsia, you may find it difficult to properly balance or smoothly transfer weight across the toes when walking or running. In order to correct this problem, extra padding can be used in the shoe to protect the shorter toe from excessive friction and pressure. Orthotics may also be used to properly distribute the weight across the foot while in motion. The surgical grafting of bone to lengthen the short toe may also be an option in some cases.
