A Morton’s neuroma is a benign growth outside the nerve that lies between the base
of the 3rd and the 4th toe. It can cause a sharp pain on weight bearing and is often
described as feeling like there is a pebble in the shoe.
Podiatrists at Orthotika will carry out an assessment to confirm whether or not you
have a Morton’s neuroma. The podiatrist may:
(i) Provide a custom made wedge that fits between the toes and relieves
the pressure on the neuroma.
(ii) Provide a custom made temporary orthtotic designed to offload the
neuroma and reduce any excessive pronation.
(iii) In resistant cases a GP referral may be made for further assessment by
imaging , injection and/or surgery.
