Late November is an ideal time for participating in 5k fun runs in the Sugar Land area. The Impact a Hero 5k on November 22 and Sugar Land Turkey Trot November 27 are right around the corner. This means you should be training in order to make sure you are ready to go when the starting gun sounds. As you train, we want you to make sure that you are paying attention to your feet, and especially be aware if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of Morton’s neuroma.

Nerve Pain

Morton’s neuroma is a swollen nerve that results from a pinching at the base of your toes on the bottom of the foot. In most instances, this condition will be found between the third and fourth toes. You will recognize this ailment if you notice an enlargement, similar to a scar, as well as burning, tingling, and numbness in the area.

This condition happens more often for those who have flat feet or rigid arches, because this is conducive to greater pressure on the nerve. Tight shoes can also be a culprit that leads to Morton’s neuroma. Both of these are situations that runners need to be aware. Flat feet are fairly common—only 25% of the population has normal arches—and it is easy to purchase running shoes that are too snug.

Luckily, there are a few at-home care treatments that can help. A simple change of footwear might be all you need. Make sure to find a pair that fits comfortably and are not excessively tight. Other things that may help ease symptoms include anti-inflammatory medication, using ice to massage the impacted area, and just plain taking a break.

If you are experiencing symptoms of Morton’s neuroma, schedule an appointment with Sugar Land’s Dr. Marco Vargas and have him properly diagnosis and treat your condition. Call (888) 784-5335 to make an appointment with the Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists today.
