Morton’s Neuroma

Morton's neuroma is a common foot condition characterized by the thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to the toes, usually between the third and fourth toes. This compression or irritation of the nerve can result in pain, tingling, or numbness in the ball of the foot or between the toes. While the exact cause is not always clear, factors such as wearing tight or high-heeled shoes, foot deformities, or repetitive stress on the forefoot can contribute to the development of Morton's neuroma. The symptoms of Morton's neuroma can often be managed with conservative measures. These may include wearing wider or more comfortable shoes, using orthotic inserts, or taking anti-inflammatory medications. Physical therapy and foot exercises may also be recommended to improve foot function and alleviate symptoms.
