Morton's Neuroma (pain in the ball of the foot)
Morton's Neuroma is the 'squeezing' of the nerves between the metatarsal bones (often the 3rd and 4th metatarsal bones). Morton's Neuroma is very similar to Metatarsalgia, but in addition displays symptoms like numbness and a tingling sensation in the toes. It may also be quite painful at times.
A Neuroma is a benign tumor of a nerve. Morton's Neuroma is not actually a tumor, but a thickening or swelling of the tissue that surrounds the digital nerve leading to the toes.
Morton's Neuroma treatment solutions and relief
For normal flat shoes we recommend Footlogics Comfort which features an in-built metatarsal support.
For woman when wearing ladies' fashion shoes and high heels, Footlogics Catwalk can help reduce the symptoms of Morton's Neuroma. These orthotic insoles supports the forefoot and prevents the metatarsals from dropping. In turn, this helps reduce the squeezing of the nerve and consequent tingling and pain associated with Morton's Neuroma.
To consult a health professional about Morton's Neuroma we recommend Foot Mechanics Podiatry.
