About 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 is caused by the squeezing and irritation of a small nerve called the common plantar digital nerve which provides the sensation to the webspace between the toes. This nerve runs very close to an important supporting ligament of the forefoot, the transverse intermetatarsal ligament which runs across the foot bones.

  • Feeling of a pebble in the sock
  • Numbness or tingling in the neuroma toes
  • Pain between the third and fourth toes
  • Pain on the balls of the foot

Morton’s neuroma symptoms are typically on one side of the foot, usually between the third and fourth toes but the pain can extend outwards or even involve the whole side of the morton’s foot. You will not likely feel a lump in your neuroma foot, because a neuroma is generally small. You may feel a burning pain in your forefoot, and this pain can extend into the toes and be hard to find relief from Morton’s neuroma.

The pain is generally worse when wearing shoes or with activity, and can create the feeling of a pebble in the shoe. In addition, you may feel numbness and tingling in the toes as the condition affects the sensory aspects of the nerves in the foot. The episodes of pain can be intermittent. You may experience flare ups such as two attacks in a week, but then have no symptoms for over a year. However, the attacks tend to become more frequent as time progresses. Rarely, a foot may contain two separate Morton’s neuromas.

Ultrasound guided non-surgical procedures are the treatments of choice to cure Morton’s neuroma.

It is very common for conservative treatment and corticosteroid injections not to help in treating your Morton’s neuroma. Depending on your other medical conditions and an assessment by our one of our doctors, we perform:

  • Ultrasound Guided Radiofrequency Ablation
  • Ultrasound Guided Cyroablation
  • Ultrasound Guided Neurolytic Ablation
