Morton's neuroma

Morton’s Neuroma is often attributed to swelling in the plantar nerve branches that run between the second and third, and third and fourth metatarsals. Compression of these nerves between metatarsal heads can be caused by microtraumas resulting from the use of inappropriate footwear (narrow shoes in particular).

Patients usually present with a sudden onset of pain, often likened to an electric shock. Numbness is also frequently present in the two affected toes.

The diagnosis is essentially clinical, but can be confirmed through an ultrasound, or an MRI scan.

Initial treatment is conservative, but in severe cases where surgical intervention is necessary the neuroma is removed.
