What is Morton’s Neuroma?
Morton’s neuroma affects the ball of the foot between the third and fourth toes. It is an injury to the nerve between the toes, causing a thickening of the tissue around the nerve. In many cases, this heel disorder may feel like a pebble in your shoe. In women, the condition is more likely for those who wear high-heeled shoes. Some causes of Morton’s neuroma are:
Symptoms of Morton’s neuroma may include:
- Cramping of toes
- Shooting or burning pains in the ball of the foot or toes
- Pressure on the affected area
- Tingling in the area
- Increased pain over time
Wearing restrictive or tight shoes causes pressure on the enlarged nerve when walking, resulting in compression of the area causing pain as the nerve is squeezed.
Morton’s Neuroma Treatment
Treatment for Morton’s neuroma involves nonsurgical approaches as well as surgical options. The foot pain specialist will first give a full examination and determine the extent of the condition. Nonsurgical options may include:
