How To Relieve Morton's Neuroma Pain

What is a Morton's Neuroma?

A Morton's neuroma is a benign (non-cancerous)  thickening of tissue surrounding the digital nerve in the foot.  It is mostly found between the 3rd and 4th toes and is caused by injury or over use and occurs 4 times more often in women.location of morton's neuroma

Symptoms may vary from numbness, a strange feeling, burning, or ball of  foot pain.  Tight and/or high heels may aggravate the pain.doctorclipart

Treatment of Morton's Neuroma

You should see a podiatrist, who will perform a foot exam.  You will learn about your options:  a steroid injection, and custom orthotic devices to lift and separate the toes, relieving pressure. 

Most people get relief with these simple measures.  For immediate help, wear a wider shoe with a lower heel and avoid hard soles.

Metatarsal pads will help also.metatarsal pads
