A Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of the tissue that surrounds the digital nerve that goes to the toes.
A Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of the tissue that surrounds the digital nerve that goes to the toes. This condition creates a persistent pain at the ball of the foot and is often described as a “walking on a marble” sensation. The most frequent location is between the third and fourth toes. Women are more likely to develop the condition than men. This diagnosis can be made easily in the office setting and treatment is often nonsurgical with proper footwear recommendations or orthotics; sometimes cortisone injections can help relieve the symptoms.
