Morton's Neuroma Conditions

Our Musculoskeletal Podiatrists use several treatment approaches to resolve nerve related pains in the feet, to give you back the freedom to run, jump and dance and wear whatever shoes match your coat and handbag!

Morton’s Neuroma is also known as Interdigital Neuritis and relates to a fibrous nerve bundle that forms in between the toes and causes radiating pain and numbness in the toes.

The most common site of a Morton’s Neuroma is between the 3rd and 4th toe and diagnosis is usually made by squeezing the forefoot and listening for an audible click which is called “Mulder’s Click”.

The most common cause of Morton’s Neuroma is tight fitting footwear and ladies who wear high heels are typical sufferers. Other people that may suffer from neuromas are those who do lots of walking or running and people with flat feet or very high arched feet also seem to be more susceptible.

Our Musculoskeletal Podiatrists are specialists in diagnosing Morton’s neuroma and differentiating it from other causes of forefoot pain. Our Musculoskeletal Consultation with Video Gait Analysis will enable them to diagnose the condition, assess footwear and identify any gait-related issues that may be contributing to your symptoms so that they can tailor a treatment plan to get you pain-free again.
