About Mortons neuroma

Back to the top

Morton’s neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot. Even though it is called “neuroma”, this condition does not involve a tumor or growth. Instead, it is caused by nerves between bones in the toes becoming swollen and inflamed. This can lead to discomfort and numbness in the affected area.

Common symptoms or sensations associated with Morton’s neuroma include:
  • Sharp burning pain in the ball of the foot that may radiate to the toes
  • The feeling of standing on a pebble under the ball of the foot
  • Tingling or numbness in your foot
  • Swelling between the toes

Women are more likely to experience Morton’s neuroma than men.

Common causes of Morton's Neuroma include:

  • Wearing shoes that put pressure on the toes and forefoot (such as high heel shoes and shoes with narrow toe boxes)
  • Playing sports that put pressure on the forefoot (such as running) or activities that feature narrow footwear (such as rock climbing, dancing, or skiing)
  • Foot deformities (such as bunions, hammertoe, flat feet, or high arches)

While most cases of Morton’s neuroma can be treated with self-care remedies and lifestyle changes, it is recommended that you seek medical attention if you experience any foot pain that lasts for more than a few days. This can help prevent complications and further injury to your foot or lower body.
