Morton's Neuroma

The classic presentation of a patient with Morton’s Neuroma is a person who relates an onset of pain in the far area of the foot or forefoot when walking. Often the person describes that the discomfort feels “like my sock was bunched up” or “I thought I had a pebble in my shoe.” Relief is often felt when the shoe is removed. A neuroma is actually a thickening of a segment of a nerve and is usually found between the third and fourth toes. A common cause is high heels in women, but a neuroma can occur in anyone. Certain foot types that are commonly associated with other foot deformities such as bunions and hammertoes will often predispose a person for a neuroma.
