The Benefits of Foot Care for Morton Syndrome

Feb 23, 2024

Morton syndrome, also known as Morton's neuroma, is a common foot condition that can cause discomfort and pain. It typically affects the area between the third and fourth toes and can result in a sharp, burning pain in the ball of the foot.

Understanding Morton Syndrome

Individuals experiencing Morton syndrome may feel like they are standing on a pebble or a fold in their sock due to the inflammation of the nerve in that area. The condition can be exacerbated by wearing tight shoes or engaging in high-impact activities.

Common Symptoms

Common symptoms of Morton syndrome include:

  • Pain in the ball of the foot
  • Numbness or tingling in the toes
  • A feeling of a lump or fold in the sock
  • Difficulty walking or bearing weight on the affected foot

Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnosing Morton syndrome usually involves a physical examination by a podiatrist and may include imaging tests like X-rays or MRIs. Treatment options for Morton syndrome can vary based on the severity of the condition and may include:

  • Orthotic devices to relieve pressure on the affected area
  • Cortisone injections to reduce inflammation and pain
  • Physical therapy to improve foot mechanics
  • Surgery in severe cases
