neuromas

Morton’s Neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. It can can cause Metarsalgia, which is pain in the balls of your feet. It can cause a very painful burning or sharp pain in your foot that feels worse when you walk and can make walking difficult. Morton’s Neuroma treatment is available from Doctors Orthotics.

Morton’s Neuroma can be caused by ill fitting shoes which press against the nerve as well as activities involving spinning on the ball of the foot such as golfers and tennis players. It can also develop from high-heeled shoes (which may create bunions, put pressure on the toes, and hold your foot at an unusual angle), from repeated stress to the feet due to activities such as running or jumping, or from rheumatoid arthritis. 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. A Morton’s Neuroma will not disappear on its own. It may result from abnormal movement of your foot, caused by bunions, hammertoes, flat feet or excessive flexibility.

The incidence of Morton’s Neuroma is eight to 10 times greater in women than in men and also is a common problem in runners. It can sometimes be felt by runners after 20 – 30 minutes of exercise and is described as a numbing or feeling that something is caught at the center of their shoe such as a lump in their sock.

There are a number of simple fixes you can try before resorting more drastic solutions like sclerosing or surgery. Morton’s Neuroma treatment can be as simple as changing the type of shoes a person wears or purchasing a pair of Custom Orthotics for your current shoes. The first step in Morton’s Neuroma treatment is to select proper footwear and to consider the purchase of Custom Orthotics.
