Morton's Neuroma and Your Feet
Morton’s Neuroma is a common foot condition characterized by pain and swelling in the ball of the foot, between the third and fourth toes. It’s caused by bones in your feet squeezing a nerve. Symptoms include a sharp, burning pain and possibly separation between the affected toes.
Why Footwear Matters
Wearing properly fitting shoes and slippers with a wide, deep toe box can alleviate the discomfort associated with Morton’s Neuroma. Your podiatrist might also recommend a customized insert.

What Else You Can Do
To reduce the pain associated with Morton’s Neuroma, follow these simple tips:
- Avoid shoes that are too tight in the toe area.
- Avoid high heels, too.
- Ice and elevate the inflamed foot when possible.
- Wear clean, dry socks that fit.
