Morton’s Neuroma Symptoms

Morton’s neuroma develops when a nerve in the foot swells because of irritation or compression. It commonly affects the area between the third and fourth toes. While benign, it can be very painful. When you have Morton’s neuroma symptoms, a simple task such as walking can become unbearable.

Morton’s Neuroma Symptoms

Typically, this condition has no external signs. Your foot would appear fine even if you’re experiencing Morton’s neuroma symptoms. To find out if you have this condition, check if you have these Morton’s neuroma symptoms:

  • Metatarsalgia:

Intense soreness in the ball of the foot or metatarsalgia is one of the most common Morton’s neuroma symptoms. It may feel like burning pain that could cause difficulty in walking and running.

  • Feeling As If You’re Standing on a Pebble

Another example of common Morton’s neuroma symptoms is feeling like you’re standing on a hard lump, like a marble or pebble. People who have Morton’s neuroma symptoms could also feel like they’re standing on a wadded-up sock.

  • Pins and Needles or Numbness of Your Toes:

If your toes feel numb or tingly with pain that radiates from the affected area, you may have Morton’s neuroma. Another indicator that you might have Morton’s neuroma symptoms is feeling the need to constantly stop while walking.

Factors That Lead to the Development of Morton’s Neuroma Symptoms

To prevent this condition, it is important to know what factors lead to the progression of Morton’s neuroma symptoms. Below are the main contributors to the development of Morton’s neuroma symptoms:

  • Footwear:

They might look fashionable but wearing high heels or tight, ill-fitting shoes can place excessive pressure on your toes and the ball of your foot. Wearing these types of footwear is a risk factor that may contribute to the development of Morton’s neuroma symptoms.

  • Certain Sports:

Participating in high-impact exercise such as running and sprinting may repeatedly subject your feet to trauma. Also, playing sports that require tight footwear such as skiing or rock climbing may put you at risk of developing Morton’s neuroma symptoms. These practices subject your feet to tremendous pressure which can lead to the progression of Morton’s neuroma symptoms.

  • Foot Deformities:

People with bunions, hammertoes, high arches, or flat feet are at higher risk of developing Morton’s neuroma symptoms. If you have these conditions, consult a medical professional on ways to prevent the development of Morton’s neuroma symptoms.

What You Can Do

Here are some options when you’re experiencing Morton’s neuroma symptoms. You may choose to have surgery if doctors can confirm that you have the condition. However, not everyone who suffers from Morton’s neuroma symptoms automatically has to go under the knife.

Most people that are affected by Morton’s neuroma symptoms have the option of nonsurgical treatments, (like the one we offer). Morton’s neuroma symptoms can be treated with the use of ultrasound-guided radio frequency ablation.

Another alternative for treating Morton’s neuroma symptoms is performing ultrasound-guided cryoablation. Ultrasound-guided neurolytic ablation is another way of dealing with Morton’s neuroma symptoms.

Morton’s Neuroma is an increasingly painful condition. It occurs when the tissue around one of the nerves leading to the toes thickens, causing a burning sensation in the ball of the foot. It has been associated with the feeling of walking around in your shoes with a small rock constantly poking the ball of your foot.

Our Treatments and Procedures

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 at The Center For Morton’s Neuroma, we carefully make our diagnosis before deciding on the best approach to treat your Morton’s Neuroma. Here are some of them:

Ultrasound Guided Cryotherapy Ablation for Morton’s Neuroma Relief

Unlike Radio Frequency Ablation which uses heat, Cryotherapy Ablation makes use of extremely cold temperatures. 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 for Morton’s Neuroma Relief

This treatment involves injecting a sclerosing 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 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 Orthotic
This is designed to offer maximum support and shock absorption.
It also fits perfectly into any type of sneaker design.
Support Orthotic
Its 16-18mm heel cup depth is designed to provide fuller heel support. It is also made of thicker plastic which makes for better rearfoot control.

Ultrasound Guided Radio Frequency Ablation for Morton’s Neuroma Relief

This minimally invasive 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. In addition, this procedure stimulates the creation of new blood vessels which promotes healing.

Ultrasound Guided Platelet Rich Plasma Injections for Morton’s Neuroma Relief

This method 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 Injections are done by running your own blood into a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. After this, the activated platelets are then administered into the damaged tissues.

Ultrasound Guided Corticosteroid Injection for Morton’s Neuroma Relief

For temporary pain relief, Corticosteroid Injections can be used on the affected area. This medication, however, should not be used as an initial treatment due to its adverse effects. Some of these include weakening of the muscles and ligaments which could lead to 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.
