One of the most common foot conditions, Morton’s neuroma, affects about a third of US adults. It’s an inflammation of a bundle of nerves between the toes, most commonly between the third and fourth toe.With continued inflammation and entrapment, the nerve tissue can become thickened and enlarged, which can lead to a painful, burning sensation with weight-bearing that is typically felt more on the bottom or ball of the foot.There can also be associated numbness or tingling radiating to the toes. Unlike some other foot conditions, Morton’s neuroma is not hereditary nor is it related to a specific injury. It’s often the result of wearing narrow or ill fitting shoes.Many times people with neuroma pain will feel relief and decreased pain simply by removing their shoes.If you are suffering from these or similar symptoms, the award-winning expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Maspeth, Huntington, Plainview, and Coram will evaluate your problem and help you find the most appropriate treatment for your condition and lifestyle.
