Morton’s neuroma is a stiffening of the tissues of the foot that pinch and pressure the nerves. Neuroma means benign tumor, but Morton’s neuroma always indicates a thickening that affects the metatarsalgia. There are no noticeable physical changes due to this condition.

Things To Look For

  • Pain commonly found between the fourth and third toes of the feet.
  • Pain similar to having a pebble or marble in your shoes as you walk.
  • Burning pain, numbness, stinging sensations that radiate through the toes
  • Pain triggered by starting a sprint

Examine your feet by placing pressure between the toe bones. Search for calluses, fractures, masses, or clicks between the bones. An X-Ray or motion tests can be conducted to definitively locate the condition.
