Morton’s Neuroma

Morton’s Neuroma

Morton’s neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. Morton’s neuroma may feel as if you are standing on a pebble in your shoe or on a fold in your sock.

Morton’s neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. You may have stinging, burning or numbness in the affected toes.

High-heeled or tight shoes have been linked to the development of Morton’s neuroma. Many people experience relief by switching to lower-heeled shoes with wider toe boxes. Sometimes corticosteroid injections or surgery may be necessary.
