Usually the metatarsal head that is taking the greatest weight is under excess stress during walking and the plantar plate ligament gives out over time and begins to tear. In mild cases, there may be little to no deformity to the toe that can be seen. A patient may describe the pain as a dull ache or a sharp pain the ball of the foot.

Secondly, the pelvic girdle is also one of the most important weight-bearing parts of the body (the others being the back, knees, feet, etc.). A ball and socket joint is also located in the hip area.
