Morton’s neuroma is often referred to as a pinched or swollen nerve. Wearing tight shoes or shoes with pointed toes is the most common cause of Morton’s neuroma!
Morton’s neuroma is an inflammation of the nerve located between the metatarsals at the base of the toes. This condition is often caused by the wearing of tight shoes or of shoes with pointed toes. Presence of pain, numbness and odd sensation at the ball of the foot are the most common symptoms associated with this inflammation. Early diagnosis can help alleviate the symptoms and prevent the use of surgery. Wider shoes, cortisone injections and custom orthoses are usually the first line of treatment. Surgery is recommended when nonsurgical treatments fail.
