Morton's Neuroma

Posted by Mark Lewis on

Causes: We all have nerves in our feet that provide us with sensation; however, some of those nerve endings can abnormally swell into a benign tumor called a Morton's neuroma. Typically located between either the second and third toes or the third and fourth no one is completely sure why this process occurs though there are many theories which focus on abnormal foot biomechanics

Symptoms: Causes of a Morton's neuroma may vary the burning pain, numbness and tingling located on the balls of the feet are relatively consistent.


Prevention & Care: Wear proper fitting shoes that have adequate room for your toes. Women suffer from Morton's neuroma five times more frequently than men because they wear tight confining high heels that put abnormal pressure on the foot and toes.
