Morton’s Neuroma may result from sustained wearing of high-heeled or narrow shoes, or from foot trauma. Some cases also result from an abnormality in foot shape.
Dr. Marso treats Morton’s Neuroma with one of the following conservative treatments:
- Roomier, low-heeled shoes
- Orthotic inserts
- Corticosteriod injections
In cases of chronic pain, outpatient surgery may be recommended. A non-surgical procedure called neurolysis may also be used, in which the affected nerve is destroyed through a series of ethanol injections.
