Morton's Neuroma

Definition

Morton’s Neuroma is a common foot problem associated with pain, swelling and/or an inflammation of a nerve, usually at the ball-of-the-foot between the 3rd and 4th toes.  Symptoms of this condition include sharp pain, burning, and even a lack of feeling in the affected area.  Morton’s Neuroma may also cause numbness, tingling, or cramping in the forefoot.

Cause

Morton’s Neuroma is a foot condition caused from an abnormal function of the foot that leads to bones squeezing a nerve usually between the 3rd and 4th metatarsal heads.  Symptoms of Morton's Neuroma often occur during or after you have been placing significant pressure on the forefoot area, while walking, standing, jumping, or sprinting.  This condition can also be caused from footwear selection.  Footwear with pointed toes and/or high heels can often lead to a neuroma.  Constricting shoes can pinch the nerve between the toes, causing discomfort and extreme pain.

Treatment and Prevention

The first step in treating Morton’s Neuroma is to select proper footwear.  Footwear with a high and wide toe box (toe area) is ideal for treating and relieving the pain.  The next step in treatment is to use an orthotic designed with a metatarsal pad.  This pad is located behind the ball-of-the-foot to unload pressure, and relieve the pain caused by the neuroma.

If problem persists, consult your foot doctor.
