Our Morton’s neuroma Network
We have chosen a select few providers who we recommend to our patients with Morton’s neuroma. We feel that they have extensive experience in helping patients with Morton’s neuroma. We are not affiliated with any of these providers and provide this as a resource to our patients.
We work with Adaptive Prosthetic & Orthotic Technologies, Inc. who provide custom orthotics for our Morton’s neuroma patients. DJ, Ilia, and Amanda of Adaptive Prosthetic & Orthotic Technologies have many years of experience in providing orthotic solutions to Morton’s neuroma patients.
They utilize innovative technology including carbon and Kevlar composites, multiple density foam laminates, silicone, and conventional thermoplastics in their orthotics. They combine activities of daily living, biomechanical alignment, and diagnosis to fabricate a true custom orthotic device. We can arrange for one of their senior orthotists to meet you at our facility.

Their clinic has been under the management of Debra MacNeil MSPT since 1995 and the clinical staff has a wealth of experience in helping patients with Morton’s neuroma.
