Morton's Neuroma Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment
Morton's neuroma is thickening of the tissue around the nerve between the bases of the toes (usually between the third and fourth toes). Foot pain, odd sensations, or numbness over the ball of the foot are the usual symptoms. It is more common in women and can be a result of wearing high heels or tight shoes.
Morton's neuroma treatment includes:
- shoe inserts to reduce pressure on the nerve
- steroid injection into the area of foot pain
- pain relievers
- surgery (occasionally)
