Morton’s Neuroma is probably the most common kind of Neuroma. It is the result of an injured nerve located in the foot leading to a thickening of the tissue that surrounds the nerve leading to the toes.
The pain you feel will generally begin in the ball of your foot and shoot out between your third and fourth toes. Your toes might sting, burn or feel numb and walking is probably quite painful. Morton’s Neuroma is far more common in women than men and part of it can be attributed to wearing high heels and shoes that are too tight.
When caught early on, Morton’s Neuroma is generally easy to treat. If you feel any kind of pain, be sure to make an appointment with our podiatrist. Many times, making simple lifestyle changes and caring for your feet can treat Morton’s Neuroma.
