Morton’s neuroma

Morton’s neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. It involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes.

This may feel as if you are standing on a pebble in your shoe. The development of this condition is linked with wearing high-heeled tight shoes.

Comfortable shoes with wider toe boxes and a forefoot cushion metatarsal relief pad will reduce the pain and bring relief while walking.

Sometimes, surgery may be necessary to remove the thickened tissue.
