What is a Morton’s Neuroma?
A patient’s story
“I have had a very strange pain in my foot that no one seems to be able to diagnose. The problem is whenever I see somebody the pain seems to have gone. The pain only really occurs when I am walking, but it is never predictable. One day I can be in agony the next, whilst doing exactly the same things, perfectly pain free. It is really hard to say where the pain is, but it is somewhere around my toes and the ball of my foot. Do you know what? I have even had to take my shoe off in the middle of the supermarket and wiggle my toes, which gives me some relief for a short time.
When I get home and look at my foot it is entirely normal and I cannot reproduce the pain by pressing on the spot where I think it was.”

How do you treat a Morton’s Neuroma?
To treat a Morton’s Neuroma, we will need to ascertain why you developed it. Treatment may involve footwear advice, orthotics and steroid injection under ultrasound guidance.
This will give you relief of the discomfort and the ability to do what you love again.
