MORTON'S NEUROMA

Is a thickening of the nerve that runs between the toes (the interdigital nerve) which may be the result of chronic impingement (pinching) of the nerve. The most common site for a neuroma to develop tends to be between the 3rd and 4th toes. The pain might feel better when shoe (tight fitting) are removed. In these cases, the compression of the nerve caused by squeezing the foot into a tight shoe makes the pain much worse. We have treated many patients with mortons neuroma. Most of our patients feel alleviation of pain after about two weeks of treatment. Don’t let pain limit you, call us today for an appointment, or fill our online appointment request form.
