What is a Morton’s Neuroma?

A Morton’s Neuroma is a benign tumour that develops in-between your toes as a result of a trapped nerve caused when your metatarsal bones pinch together. To protect your nerve your body forms a neuroma to prevent pressure from damaging the nerve, however this neuroma can often cause uncomfortable and painful symptoms. You will most often suffer from a Morton’s neuromas in-between your big toe and second toe however they can develop in-between any of your toes.

What are the most common symptoms?

If you have a Morton’s Neuroma it can feel as though you are stood on a sharp pebble when you walk. You may also struggle to be able to wiggle your affected toes and may experience tightness, inflammation and swelling and a sharp pain radiating from the affected area. Those suffering from a Morton’s Neuroma may change the way that they walk to compensate for the pain being caused by it. Overtime this can lead to biomechanical imbalances during gait which can cause further strain and pressure on your feet making things even worse and even cause other foot and lower limb injuries to develop.

What causes you to develop a Morton’s Neuroma?

There are many different reasons why you may have ended up trapping a nerve in-between your toes and causing a neuroma to develop. Wearing ill-fitting, tight shoes and high heels can cause your metatarsal bones to bunch together and cause nerves to become trapped. Biomechanical imbalances when you walk such as Overpronation and under pronation can also be a cause. Biomechanical imbalances in your feet can place excessive strain and pressure on the balls of your feet and metatarsal bones which can make you more susceptible to trapping a nerve in-between your toes.

How common is this condition?

Having a Morton’s neuroma is very common so much so that it is estimated that 1 in 3 people have one. More women suffer from the condition than men. This is believed to be because women will often wear more pointed shoes than men and High heels making them more susceptible to trapping nerves in-between their toes. Whilst most people do not suffer badly from the condition some people can suffer severe pain when walking and will need treatment.

How do you treat this condition?

Addressing and treating the underlining issues that have caused you to trap the nerve in-between your toes should underpin any treatment for this condition.

The most common treatments include wearing better fitted shoes that do not bunch your toes together, wearing arch support insoles that help to better support your feet and prevent biomechanical imbalances from occurring, applying an ice pack to the affected area to reduce swelling and inflammation and wearing Morton’s neuroma pads that help to support, realign and protect your metatarsal bones and the balls of your feet.

Is having a Morton’s Neuroma a serious health concern?

If you suffer from a Morton’s neuroma, then you should not be worried as it is not considered a serious health problem as it is a benign tumour and is easily treatable. However, it is recommended that you seek advice from your doctor as soon as possible if you are all concerned that your neuroma is not simply a benign tumour and could be cancer. Suffering from a Morton’s neuroma can be a sign of other underlining problems with the way your feet function making you more susceptible to other foot and lower limb injuries. Having a Morton’s Neuroma in itself can also affect your gait due to the pain that it causes. This can lead to other more serious foot injuries and conditions to develop such as Bunions, Sesamoiditis, Atrophy of the fat pad, Hammer toes, Plantar Fasciitis, Cuboid Syndrome, Arthritis etc. If you suspect that this is the case, you should seek help from a podiatrist to help you correct your gait.
