Morton’s Neuroma

Morton's neuroma is a thickening of tissues around the nerve that leads to the toes. The condition usually occurs between the third and fourth toes in response to irritation, such as that caused by wearing high-heeled or narrow shoes, or from trauma.

Symptoms may include a burning pain that radiates from the ball of the foot to the toes or numbness in the toes. Simple treatments usually resolve the condition, and range from wearing better-fitting footwear and using orthotics, to injections of corticosteroids to reduce swelling and inflammation.
