Morton’s Neuroma - Podiatrist in Scottsdale and North Scottsdale AZ - Richard Jacoby DPM
Podiatrist - Dr. Richard Jacoby of Valley Foot Surgeons discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Morton’s Neuroma.
Morton’s neuroma affects the ball of the foot. The most commonly affected area is between the third and fourth toes. The sensation is similar to having a small rock in your shoe.
Morton’s neuroma is caused by the nerves leading to the toes becoming thicker than normal. This causes pain in the ball of the foot or a tingling sensation in the toes. It can also lead to stinging or burning sensations.
Morton’s neuroma may occur as a result of injury, pressure or foot irritation. Home remedies for Morton’s neuroma include using arch supports, changing footwear, and discarding high heeled or tight footwear. In some cases, injections or surgery may be required to mitigate pain.
