Treating Mortons Neuroma in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Mortons Neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. If you sometimes feel that you are walking on a marble or stepping on a pebble in your shoe with persistent pain, you may have this condition. A neuroma is a benign tumor of a nerve. Morton’s neuroma is not actually a tumor, but a thickening of the tissue that surrounds the digital nerve leading to the toes. In most cases, the incidence is 8 to 10 times more likely to occur in women than in men.

Symptoms

Common symptoms include a burning pain in the ball of the foot that may radiate (travel) out to the toes, tingling, numbness, a popping sensation while walking, and the feeling that there is something inside the shoe beneath the ball of the foot such as a marble or pebble, though no outward signs, such as a lump, are visible.

Treatment

Conservative treatments include changes in footwear, such as eliminating high heels or tight shoes and choosing a shoe with more width and a softer sole. This enables the bones to spread out and reduce the pressure on the affected nerve, allowing healing. Cortisone injections may also help, but if conservative treatments fail surgery may be required to relieve the pain.
