What is Morton’s Neuroma?

Morton’s neuroma is the of the most common nueromas, which normally occurs at the base of the third toe and fourth toe. The thickening, or enlargement, of the nerve that defines a neuroma is the result of compression and irritation of the nerve. This compression creates swelling of the nerve, which eventually can lead to permanent nerve damage.

Who suffers from Morton’s Neuroma?

Anything that causes compression or irritation of the nerve can lead to the development of a neuroma. One of the most common offenders is wearing shoes that have a tapered toe box, or high-heeled shoes that cause the toes to be forced into the toe box.

People with certain foot deformities including bunions, hammertoes, flatfeet, or flexible feet—are at higher risk for developing a neuroma. Other potential causes are activities that involve repetitive irritation to the ball of the foot, such as running or racquet sports. An injury or other type of trauma to the area may also lead to a neuroma.
