Neuroma (or Mortons Neuroma)

Morton's NeuromaThere are nerves in feet which run up towards the toes, finally branching off to give sensation into the toes themselves. Back at the level of the main toe joints at the level of the intermetatarsal ligament these nerves are vulnerable to thickening. This can occur between the 3rd and 4th toes, but also between the 2nd and 3rd toes. This benign thickening is called a mortons neuroma.

Neuroma pain is believed to be related to mechanical irritation to the nerve where the  neuroma is located.

Different methods can be used to reduce symptoms and treat neuromas.  If you are suffering with pain in the ball of your foot (metatarsalgia) or toes then speak to a foot specialist/chiropodist for advice.
