Morton’s Neuroma

Do you sometimes feel like there’s a rock inside your shoe when you’re walking? But when you check to see what’s causing the discomfort, you can’t find any rock or pebble. If this sounds familiar, you might have a condition called Morton’s neuroma.

Morton’s neuroma happens when a tissue thickens around the nerves leading to your toes. You might feel a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot, especially in the area between your third and fourth toes, where Morton’s neuroma most often occurs.

If you’re tired of dealing with the pain and discomfort caused by Morton’s neuroma, The Center For Morton’s Neuroma can provide the solution for you. We specialize in Morton’s neuroma and offer specialized products and procedures for patients suffering from Morton’s neuroma. Our experienced doctors and staff will work closely with you to develop a treatment that will help improve your condition.

What Causes Morton’s Neuroma?

Morton’s neuroma is often the result of wearing shoes that are too tight or shoes with high heels. Other possible reasons are gait defects that might cause stress on the nerves on the foot. Some examples of these defects are: Flat Feet, High-Arched Feet, Bunions and Hammertoes.

Morton’s Neuroma is more likely to occur in women who wear high-heeled shoes for long periods. Athletes are also prone to having Morton’s neuroma if their sport involves high-impact activities with intense “stop-start” movements. Some sports require players to wear tight, constricting shoes that put pressure on the toes as well.

What Are the Symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma?

Morton’s neuroma has no visible signs such as lumps or swelling. Patients who have Morton’s neuroma often find out through the slight tingling or pain they feel between their toes. Although there are cases when people don’t always feel the symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma, others are in constant pain and discomfort. Some of the most common symptoms of Morton’s neuroma are:

  • You feel prickling or tingling pains on the ball of your foot that might spread out to your toes.
  • The pain might come in intervals and eases off when you’re not walking or wearing tight shoes.
  • You feel like there’s a pebble in your shoe, or one of your socks is bunched up.
  • The pain or discomfort worsens when you’re walking, running, or wearing shoes that squeeze your toes.

What Are The Simple Initial Treatments for Morton’s Neuroma?

Treatment for Morton’s neuroma depends on the seriousness of a patient’s symptoms. Your doctor might suggest that you start on simple first line nonsurgical treatments before moving on to procedures if the pain on your foot persists. Initial treatment for Morton’s neuroma usually involves:

  • Avoiding high heels or tight shoes, and wearing wider shoes with lower heels to let the bones in the foot relax and heal.
  • Orthoses or custom shoe inserts that relieve stress on one area of the foot by distributing force evenly.
  • Injection of corticosteroid medication may be a temporary short term solution.
  • Stretching exercises to loosen tendons and ligaments.

Our Non-Surgical Treatments for Your Morton’s Neuroma

Don’t let Morton’s Neuroma interfere with your daily routine. At The Center For Morton’s Neuroma, we specialize in non-surgical treatments for foot neuromas. There are a wide range of treatments and procedures which can be used to treat Morton’s Neuroma. However, each individual responds differently to certain kinds of treatment. That is why we carefully evaluate your foot pain, make a diagnosis and plan before deciding on the best approach to treat your Morton’s Neuroma. Here are some of our treatments:

Ultrasound Guided Cryotherapy Ablation

This minimally invasive treatment makes use of extremely cold temperatures to target nerves affected by Morton’s Neuroma. This procedure is done by using liquid nitrogen or argon gas in order to freeze and destroy tissues affected by Morton’s Neuroma.

Ultrasound Guided Neurolytic Injections 

This treatment involves injecting a neurolytic agents like concentrated alcohol into the affected tissue. This eliminates or at least significantly decreases the ability of the nerves to transmit pain signals, thereby causing significant pain relief.

Customized Orthotics for Morton’s Neuroma Relief

Our custom-designed orthotics will help you with your biomechanical foot issues such as problems with walking and running. We offer two types of designs that ensure maximum comfort and rigidness for your feet. You can choose from Comfort or Support Orthotics.

Stem Cell Therapy for Morton’s Neuroma Relief

Through this therapy, stem cells from the bone marrow are used in order to repair and rebuild the tissues damaged by Morton’s Neuroma. This is done by collecting stem cells from your pelvic bone, and injecting them into the affected body part.

Ultrasound Guided Radio Frequency Ablation

This treatment makes use of high-frequency radio waves which target nerves affected by Morton’s Neuroma. The heat emitted by these radio waves breaks down proteins which prevents nerve fibers from transmitting pain.

Ultrasound Guided Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

We usually combine this with an ultrasound guided ablation. PRP involves harnessing your body’s natural ability to regenerate itself in order to promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. Platelet Rich Plasma is taken from a sample of your own blood, which is then centrifuged it to concentrate the platelets then injected into the damaged tissues.

Corticosteroid Injection for Temporary Relief

Corticosteroid Injections can be used for temporary pain relief. This should used rarely due to its adverse effects which may include fat pad atrophy and weakening of the muscles and ligaments which could lead to further foot pain and instability.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy for Morton’s Neuroma Relief

This treatment transmits pressure waves onto the affected area through the use of Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology. These waves help stimulate metabolism, enhance blood circulation, and accelerate the healing process.
