Massaging is a great way to reduce pain in the early stages of Morton’s Neuroma. However, massaging methods that put too much pressure on the metatarsal heads can aggravate the pain by worsening the nerve compression.

The Massaging techniques that are recommended for Morton’s neuroma include the ones that foster mobilization of the metatarsal heads. These massaging techniques involve applying mild pressure on the metatarsal heads which can reduce nerve compression and make Morton’s Neuroma bearable. This technique works best when combined with daily use of toe spacers or a metatarsal pad to decrease the pain caused in early stage Morton’s neuroma.

If massaging is not sufficient to reduce the pain, you should consider other conservative treatment options or procedures to treat resistant Morton’s neuroma pain.
