Morton’s Neuroma is a painful condition that effects the forefoot and is caused by inflammation of the sheath that surrounds the nerves of the foot.
65% of the time Morton’s Neuroma occurs between the 3rd and 4th toes, but may be present elsewhere in the foot.
Furthermore, females in their 40’s are 15 times more likely to suffer from this debilitating and painful foot condition.
Usually no obvious area of swelling is noted but symptoms may include;
- A feeling that you are standing on or that you have a stone/lump in your shoe
- A painful burning sensation in the ball of your foot that may radiate down into your toes
- A tingling feeling or a numbness in your forefoot or toes
In a recent study it has been shown that ESWT is a effective, none surgical treatment option for Morton’s Neuroma.
