Morton’s Neuroma

Morton’s neuroma describes a benign fibrotic thickening of the nerve that runs between the metatarsals of the foot. Most commonly it develops between the third and fourth toes. The thickening starts in response to ongoing irritation or excessive pressure. This irritation is usually due to a history of narrow or heeled shoes. It is also often seen in certain activities requiring allot of stress of the forefoot such as dance or running. A flat foot type can also make you more susceptible to this condition. 

Common Symptons

Feeling like your walking on a pebble or there is something in your shoe

Numbness or tingling into the toes

Pain in the ball of the foot
