Morton’s neuroma, not to be confused with Morton’s toe, which is an entirely different foot condition, is a thickening of the nerve tissues between the toes, typically the third and fourth toe. This thickening is what causes the pain that people with Morton’s neuroma experience when walking. The pain can be quite intense with sensations ranging from burning, numbness, and swelling to pain in the ball of the foot. Morton’s toe, on the other hand, is not really a foot condition at all, but a foot shape. With Morton’s toe, the big toe is shorter than the second toe. Sometimes, it’s hardly noticeable, but with more obvious cases, it can cause problems such as calluses or excessive pronation.
What causes Morton’s Neuroma? The exact causes of Morton’s neuroma are unknown, but there are contributing factors. These include participating in high-impact sports that expose your feet to repetitive trauma, foot deformities like bunions, flat feet, high arches, or hammertoes and wearing high-heeled shoes, or shoes that are ill fitting or too tight in the toe box area.
How is it prevented and treated? The cure and prevention could be as simple as switching to men’s shoes for Morton’s neuroma, which feature a wider toe box. The best men’s shoes for Morton’s neuroma will have a loose, comfortable fit to minimize pressure on the painful area. The best Morton’s neuroma shoes for men should also feature orthopedic insoles with anatomical arch-support, which help straighten the foot and further decrease pressure on the neuroma. If you participate in sports, it’s also important to make sure that your wear special men’s Morton’s neuroma athletic shoes that have enough padding to cushion the bottom of your feet. Sometimes orthopedic insoles and orthotics with good arch support and a metatarsal pad might be necessary. As a last resort, corticosteroid injections or surgery (neurectomy) can also be considered.
