What is Morton’s Neuroma?

by MASS4D® Insoles March 24, 2018

It is common for people with Morton’s neuroma to complain of foot pain that makes them feel like they’re walking on a pebble.

This pain is often felt between the third and fourth toes; it is also possible to have a stinging or prickly sensation in the toes.

The reason for this pain is the swelling or thickening of a nerve tissue between the bones in the ball of the foot. With this type of swelling, you may find it difficult to continue walking without limping from the pain.

By learning about some of the common risk factors that can lead to Morton’s neuroma, you can protect yourself and your family better from this painful foot condition.

Morton's Neuroma
Morton's neuroma refers to a swollen nerve between the toes.

Symptoms of Morton’s neuroma

Besides the constant feeling of having a pebble in your shoe, you may also experience a sharp or burning pain in the ball of your foot. This pain can slowly spread to your toes and may increase while walking or running. In the latter stages of the condition, Morton’s neuroma can cause your toes to spread apart.

With your toes positioned this way, wearing shoes can become hard as any kind of pressure on your toes will only increase the pain.

This is especially true if you have a fondness for high-heeled shoes or other tight-fitting shoes that compress your toes.

Runners usually feel this pain more because of repeated stress on the affected toes while running.

Risk factors of Morton’s neuroma 

There are a few factors that can increase your chances of developing a swollen nerve between the toes.

The most common one is choosing footwear that doesn’t fit you properly. For example, wearing high heels regularly will place extra pressure on the toes and may gradually cause the nerve to become inflamed.

If you’re involved in sports such as running or jogging, then it becomes even more risky to wear uncomfortable shoes, as this will only increase the impact of the foot repeatedly hitting the ground.

Having obesity is another factor that can stress the soft tissues of the foot over time. This is because of the extra weight that is consistently put on the feet.

Foot posture problems such as flat or high arches can also elevate pressure on the toes because of improper movement of the feet.

This type of foot movement causes an unbalanced distribution of weight which can cause more weight to shift towards the toes, leading to inflammation of the nerve.

It is important to get your feet examined for foot posture problems while treating Morton’s neuroma. If left untreated, these foot problems can cause this condition to develop again.

Treatment for Morton’s neuroma

The first step in treatment would involve switching to comfortable shoes that do not leave your toes compressed.

It is better to opt for footwear with enough wiggle room for the toes to move and function properly.

If you’re obese, try losing the excess weight by pursing an active lifestyle that consists of a healthy diet and exercise.

This should help in easing some of the stress on the affected nerve.

In case the pain is unbearable, speak to your doctor and see if he recommends painkillers or injections for relief.

For foot posture problems, you can practice strengthening exercises to build strength in flat or high arches.

A good exercise to try is the towel scrunch – simply place a towel under each foot (one at a time) and start grabbing it by the toes until you reach the edge.

Practising this simple exercise for five minutes each day can help stabilise your arches and improve their condition.

MASS4D® Insoles can help Morton’s neuroma

MASS4D® can help you with flat arches that lead to Morton’s neuroma. These insoles have been created by specialists after a thorough analysis of the way flat arches cause different conditions such as Morton’s neuroma.

By balancing weight distribution in the feet, MASS4D® will help in reducing any excess stress on the inflamed nerve, promoting healing and recovery.

In this way, your MASS4D® insoles will make a great addition to a rehabilitation programme designed for Morton’s neuroma.

Most people don’t realise the negative effects of improper foot movement.

When your feet don’t move in a healthy manner, you become vulnerable to painful foot conditions that slow you down, including Morton’s neuroma.

MASS4D® insoles help in regulating movement of the feet to lower your chances of developing this condition again.

With your arch in its normal position, your feet will be able to efficiently absorb shock forces from the ground during running.

This means, not only will your running form improve, but you will also be protected from foot problems that can affect your performance or force you to stop running completely.

So, if you’re suffering from Morton’s neuroma or know somebody with the condition, order a pair of MASS4D® insoles today and don’t live another day with foot pain.
