Understanding Morton's Disease

Morton's Disease, also referred to as Morton's neuroma, is a common foot condition that affects the nerves in the ball of the foot. It typically occurs between the third and fourth toes, causing pain, numbness, or tingling sensations. This condition is often caused by the compression of the nerves due to abnormal foot mechanics, such as wearing tight-fitting shoes or engaging in high-impact activities.

At The Foot Practice, we understand the challenges and discomfort associated with Morton's Disease. Our podiatrists have extensive knowledge and expertise in diagnosing and treating this condition, ensuring personalized care tailored to your specific needs.

Treating Morton's Disease

When it comes to managing Morton's Disease, our primary goal is to relieve pain, improve foot function, and enhance your overall quality of life. Our podiatrists employ a comprehensive approach that involves both non-surgical and surgical treatment options, depending on the severity of your condition.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

If you're diagnosed with Morton's Disease in its early stages, non-surgical interventions are often highly effective in managing the condition. Our podiatrists may recommend the following treatment options:

  • Orthotic Devices: Custom orthotic inserts can be prescribed to provide proper foot support, alleviate pressure on the affected nerves, and improve overall foot mechanics.
  • Footwear Modification: Our knowledgeable podiatrists can guide you on choosing appropriate footwear that offers ample arch support, a wide toe box, and sufficient cushioning to reduce nerve compression.
  • Physical Therapy: Specific exercises and stretches can help strengthen the foot muscles, promote proper alignment, and alleviate symptoms associated with Morton's Disease.
  • Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or steroid injections may be prescribed to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation in the affected area.

Surgical Treatment Options

In cases where non-surgical interventions do not provide sufficient relief, our podiatrists may recommend surgical procedures to address Morton's Disease. Surgical options aim to remove the neuroma or release the compressed nerves, relieving symptoms and restoring normal foot function. Our dedicated team will carefully assess your condition, discuss the potential benefits and risks, and guide you through every step of the surgical process.
