What is Morton’s neuroma?

Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of the tissue that surrounds the nerves leading to the toes, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. This can cause compression of the nerves, leading to pain, numbness, and tingling in the affected area. Morton’s neuroma can also cause a sensation of a lump or pebble in the shoe, and patients may experience worsening symptoms with activities such as walking or running.

 

Causes of Morton’s neuroma may include:

  • Wearing shoes that are too tight or narrow, or that have high heels
  • Repeated stress or trauma to the affected area
  • Certain foot deformities, such as flat feet or high arches

 

Treatment for Morton’s neuroma

At Sydney Wide Podiatry, we offer a range of treatments for Morton’s neuroma, depending on the severity of the condition and the patient’s individual needs. Some of our most common treatments for Morton’s neuroma include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications or corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation and pain
