Heel Pain? We Can Help!

Morton’s Neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. Morton’s Neuroma may feel as if you are standing on a pebble in your shoe or on a fold in your sock.

Morton’s Neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. Your toes also may sting, burn or feel numb.

ORTHOTICSORTHOTICS

Orthotics support the arch removing some of the pressure off of your metatarsals. We have several great over the counter options between $40-55 and come with a 100 day satisfaction guarantee!

MET PADMET PAD

A metatarsal pad, or met pad for short, is used to help support your transverse arch (this is the arch that runs widthwise across your forefoot located right below the ball of your foot). This will help place your forefoot in a natural resting position while supporting the heads of your metatarsal bones.

PROPER FOOTWEARPROPER FOOTWEAR

When treating Morton’s Neuroma, it is imperative to assess your footwear. You need a shoe that is both wide and tall in the toe area (otherwise known as the toe box).

Arch-building and barefoot balance exercises help improve foot functions and can take pressure off of your Morton’s Neuroma.

A very common cause of Morton’s Neuroma is having too small of a toe box in your shoe or footwear. This compresses the nerves between your metatarsal foot bones until they become inflamed and enlarged.

Passive toe flexion (not extension!) exercises and toe separator cushions can help improve the symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma.
