For those who may feel numbness or tightness in the toes during physical activity, you may have Morton’s neuroma, a disorder of the nerve tissue. The condition occurs when the nerves between the toes becomes pinched, leading to symptoms of pain or numbness. Potential factors that can contribute to Morton’s neuroma includes tight-fitting shoes. When shopping for shoes make sure to shop toward the end of the day as our feet tend to swell later on in the day.

Morton’s neuroma can be a difficult condition to contend with. If you are experiencing symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma, contact Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti will treat your foot and ankle needs.

Morton’s Neuroma
Morton's neuroma is a painful foot condition that commonly affects the areas between the third and fourth toe and the ball of the foot, although other areas of the foot are also susceptible to this condition. Morton’s neuroma is caused by an inflamed nerve in the foot that is being squeezed and aggravated by surrounding bones.  Women are more likely than men to have an occurrence of this foot condition.

What Increases the Chances of having Morton’s Neuroma?
-Ill-fitting high heels or shoes that add pressure to the toe or foot area.
-Jogging, running and any sports that involve constant impact to the foot area.
-Flat feet, bunions, and any other foot deformity may put you at a higher risk for developing Morton’s neuroma.

If you suspect that you may have this condition, you should visit your podiatrist. A podiatrist will first conduct a thorough physical examination to check for palpable masses between the bones of the foot.
