Morton’s Neuroma: Caused By Footwear?
Oftentimes, we buy footwear based on how beautiful they look when we first wear them. We go to the mall or shoe store to buy a pair and after we chose the most beautiful pair, we purchase them. After using them on a daily basis or special occasions, we started to feel pain in our feet and the shoes are not comfortable anymore after using them for a while. I guess this is a common story that happened to most of us before.
Sometimes you disregard the pain because you love the shoes. The pain you are experiencing like the squeezing or chronic compression in forefoot’s bone is the pain of morton’s neuroma. So what is a morton’s neuroma? Morton’s Neuroma is a benign neuroma of an intermetatarsal plantar nerve, most commonly of the third and fourth intermetatarsal spaces.
Symptoms may include burning, swelling, stinging, numbness and pain in the forefoot and toes, particularly between the fourth and third toes. Morton’s neuroma treatment widely use corticosteroid and orthotics injections. If the injections fail, removing the affected piece of nerve tissue are commonly offered to the patient.
