Morton's neuroma is an uncomfortable condition with symptoms including a burning pain at the front of the foot. Morton's neuroma occurs when fibrous tissue develops around the nerve, and this becomes irritated and compressed. The pain associated with Morton's neuroma affects the area near the ball of the foot or metatarsal, and also causes waves of pain at the base of the toes. You may find that you experience symptoms of Morton's neuroma in one or both of your feet, and it most commonly occurs in the gap between the third and fourth toes. Morton's neuroma can be caused by restrictive footwear and aggravated by impact to the metatarsal. Take a look at our Morton's neuroma products below which are designed to help reduce the impact on the forefoot.
