Don’t let your Morton’s neuroma get you down
If you or someone you care about is suffering from Morton’s neuroma for longer than one month, or if your pain is so severe that you are having difficulty walking, running or just functioning, it’s time to seek professional help from a clinic specifically tailored to treat Morton’s neuroma that can provide a wide range of services. Often, Morton’s neuroma creates a vicious cycle. It can cause changes in your posture, mood and activity level. Because movement is painful, you might start to avoid exercise and routine activities. This inactivity and avoidance of weight bearing on your affected foot leads to poor posture, weakening the muscles supporting your foot and ankle resulting in worse posture and continued foot problems – not to mention giving up on the activities you enjoy.
What is Morton’s neuroma?
If you’ve ever had the feeling of walking around with a rock in your shoe, then you might understand the first symptoms of Morton’s neuroma. Often, this condition causes you to feel as if a rock is stuck in your shoe, your sock is bunched up, or something is poking you in the ball of the foot.
Although the word neuroma can sometimes conjure up images of cancer, it is not a cancerous tumor. Instead, it is a thickening of the tissue surrounding a nerve that serves the upper foot and toes. In general, Morton’s neuroma does not indicate any serious pathology of the foot, and it is common and treatable. For more information on Morton’s neuroma see: What is it.
We’ll find the right treatment for you
We will develop a complete multi-disciplinary treatment plan to best treat your Morton’s neuroma. We’ll select from an appropriate combination of state-of-the-art techniques, medications, physical therapy and if necessary surgery to achieve success. Our philosophy is to treat your Morton’s neuroma with the most appropriate non-surgical treatment for you and only resort to surgery as a last option. Any surgery carries certain risks and so we offer a broad range of guided procedures, which we can exhaust before recommending surgery. However we will recommend surgery if non-surgical approaches have been exhausted or are inappropriate.
