Managing Your Morton's Neuroma

Morton’s neuroma is a condition in which small lumps develop between the third and fourth toes on the nerves, leading to pain, tingling, and irritation. The pain usually occurs in the ball area of your toes. Morton’s neuroma can be caused by various factors, including ill-fitting shoes such as high heels, stress on the feet from high pressure activities, and conditions such as bunions, hammertoes, or flat feet. Treatment options for Morton’s neuroma include changing your footwear, custom orthotics, injections that will help reduce inflammation of the nerve tissues, and surgical removal.

Morton’s Neuroma is a very uncomfortable condition to live with. If you think you have Morton’s neuroma consult with Dr. Jon M. Sherman of Kentlands Foot & Ankle Center. Our doctor will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.

Morton’s Neuroma

Morton's neuroma is a painful foot condition that commonly affects the areas between the second and third or third and fourth toe, although other areas of the foot are also susceptible. Morton’s neuroma is caused by an inflamed nerve in the foot that is being squeezed and aggravated by surrounding bones.

What Increases the Chances of having Morton’s Neuroma?

  • -Ill-fitting high heels or shoes that add pressure to the toe or foot
  • -Jogging, running or any sport that involves constant impact to the foot
  • -Flat feet, bunions, and any other foot deformities
