How To Treat Morton’s Neuroma

Morton’s Neuroma

Morton’s neuroma is a common foot condition that is often described as feeling like you have something in your shoe under the ball of your foot. The actual cause of this problem is a nerve condition. Morton’s neuroma is frequently a result of injury and pressure that pushes on the nerves that connect to your toes. 

Women who wear high heeled shoes are more susceptible to developing neuromas and other foot problems due to the extreme pressure that pumps put on their feet. High-stress activities like sports and running are also risk factors for this condition.

Treatments for Morton’s neuroma include the following:
