Morton’s Neuroma: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment
Morton’s Neuroma results from continuous or repeated compression of the nerve between the third and fourth metatarsal bones. Morton’s Neuroma is very similar to Metatarsalgia (Ball of Foot Pain), but it also involves other symptoms such as numbness and a tingling sensation in the toes. This condition can be quite uncomfortable and painful at times.
A neuroma is a benign nerve tumor. However, Morton’s Neuroma is not actually a tumor, but a fibrous thickening or swelling of the tissue that surrounds the digital nerve leading to the toes.
Morton’s Neuroma: Treatment and relief
Morton’s Neuroma is characterized by pain and numbness in the toes, and the symptoms are often relieved by removal of tight-fitting footwear. Wearing ladies’ fashion shoes and high heels can cause undue stress on these nerves. In these cases, Footminders Catwalk can help relieve the painful symptoms brought on by this condition.
The Footminders Catwalk orthotic insoles supports the forefoot and prevent the metatarsals from dropping. As a result, this helps reduce the squeezing of the nerve and consequent tingling and pain associated with Morton’s Neuroma.
