Morton's Neuroma

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you experience sharp or burning pains in the ball of the foot that sometimes shoot up the back of your legs or to your toes? Morton’s neuroma is the medical term describing a neuroma of the nerve to the toes of the foot. Ninety percent of all neuroma sufferers are women ages 18-85.

Also known as a perineural fibroma and intermetatarsal or interdigital neuroma, this condition results from excessive pressure to the nerve and the fibrous sheath surrounding it, which causes the nerve to become inflamed and enlarged.

Squeezing the ball of the foot typically reproduces the symptomatic pain. Tenderness and numbness in the space between the third and fourth toes are also common symptoms of this condition.

 

How Footwear Can Help

A properly fitting pair of shoes and inserts should reduce the symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma.

All Dr. Comfort footwear is designed with extra depth, width and a larger toe box to accomodate for inserts. All our shoes include our Gel Plus insert.

If you think you have a neuroma, get it treated sooner than later by a podiatrist because it can enlarge over time if left untreated.
