Stay active all day. Enjoy sports and dancing again.
A painful condition affecting the foot, Morton’s neuroma affects the ball of the foot. Commonly between the metatarsals, you may experience a sharp burning pain in the ball of your foot. It may feel like a small knob and, when pressed, produces a shooting pain, numbness and tingling between the toes and the ball of the foot.
Often referred to as a pinched nerve or nerve tumour, it is more common in women due to the wearing of narrow shoes or high heels. To ease the pain of the thickened nerves, those suffering often have to stop walking, take off their shoe and massage the affected area, which is not ideal for enjoying your best life and participating in sports, dancing or working all day whilst standing.
Morton’s neuromas are usually diagnosed with clinical assessment and scans such as ultrasound or MRI. Dr Kim, a specialist podiatric surgeon can assess your foot and order scans as necessary during a consultation.
