What Is Morton’s Neuroma?

by MASS4D® Insoles

Morton's Neuroma

Morton’s Neuroma is a swollen nerve located between two toes, most commonly found between the third and fourth toes. The pain felt from this enlarged nerve can be sharp or burning, and is often described by patients as 'walking on a pebble'.

Understanding the symptoms and causes of morton's neuroma can help individuals in taking better care of their feet. 

In its latter stages, Morton's Neuroma causes the toes to spread apart. Risk factors include wearing tight-fitting shoes, excess weight and poor foot posture.

Having flat feet creates uneven distribution of weight in the foot, causing repeated irritation to the soft tissues of the foot, including the nerves.

Diagnosis for the condition is typically completed with physical examination. However, X-rays and MRIs may also be ordered, if necessary.

Once confirmed, treatment for morton's neuroma would involve changing to comfortable footwear that does not put any restriction on the movement of the toes, pain-relieving therapies and foot posture correction.
