This blog post will focus on Morton’s neuroma – a common condition that affects many people.
What is Morton’s Neuroma?
Morton’s neuroma is a painful condition that affects the nerves in your feet, particularly the ball of your foot. It typically causes a sharp, burning pain that can make walking or standing uncomfortable. Many people describe it as feeling like there’s a pebble or a lump in their shoe, even when there isn’t one.
What causes Morton’s Neuroma?
There are many different factors that can contribute to the development of Morton’s neuroma. It’s often caused by wearing tight, narrow shoes that put pressure on the nerves in your feet. High-impact activities like running or jumping can also aggravate the condition. Women are more likely to develop Morton’s neuroma than men, possibly due to the types of shoes they tend to wear.
How is Morton’s Neuroma treated?
The good news is that Morton’s neuroma can often be treated without surgery. At Feet Street Podiatry Clinic, we offer a variety of non-surgical treatments to help relieve your pain and improve your mobility. These may include custom orthotics, corticosteroid injections, physical therapy, or changes to your footwear.
In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the affected nerve. However, this is usually a last resort after all other options have been exhausted.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek the help of a podiatrist. At Feet Street Podiatry Clinic, we can help diagnose and treat Morton’s neuroma to relieve your pain and improve your quality of life.
