If you wear high heels or are experiencing pain between your third and fourth toe, you could be feeling the effects of Morton’s Neuroma. Morton’s Neuroma affects the tissue around the nerves of your foot leading to your toes. It is often described as a sharp burning pain in the ball of your foot.
Morton’s Neuroma is eight times more likely to occur in women than in men. Wearing high heels increases your chances of developing Morton’s Neuroma, because high heels have a narrow toe box that places pressure on your toes and the ball of your foot. Sports that leave your foot prone to repetitive injuries can also result in Morton’s Neuroma.
If you feel like you are walking on a pebble, you may be experiencing the effects of Morton’s Neuroma. Address your foot pain today by calling or scheduling an appointment online with Dr. Marco Vargas. He may recommend a change in footwear, custom orthotics, or even steroid injections to reduce swelling.
