Morton’s Neuroma - Podiatrist in Garland, Firewheel and Plano, TX - Michael Lenertz, DPM
Dr. Michael Lenertz of the Foot and Ankle Medical Clinic discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Morton’s Neuroma.
Neuromas are enlarged, benign growths of nerves, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. They are caused by bones and other tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. Abnormal bone structure and pressure from ill-fitting shoes can also create the condition, which can result in pain, burning, tingling or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot.
Conservative treatment can include padding, taping, orthotics devices, and cortisone injections, but surgical removal of the growth can happen in up to 50% of those suffering from this condition.
