morton's neuromaFoot and ankle surgeons have gathered at the Annual Scientific Conference of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) in a conference on how to best treat neuromas in women. Women are reportedly more susceptible to negative foot and ankle conditions as a result of high heels and narrow footwear.

Scottsdale foot and ankle surgeon Kris DiNucci DPM states that active women who enjoy running are prone to neuromas, especially if they have flat feet or wear narrow shoes regularly. Neuromas are nerve disorders that require treatment before they worsen. A common neuroma is Morton’s Neuroma, which occurs between the third and fourth toe.

Morton’s neuroma can become a serious condition when left untreated. If you are experiencing any symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma, talk to podiatrist Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can address and treat your symptoms.  

Morton’s Neuroma

Morton's neuroma is a painful foot condition that commonly affects the areas between the third and fourth toe and the ball of the foot, although other areas of the foot are also susceptible to this condition. Morton’s neuroma is caused by an inflamed nerve in the foot that is being squeezed and aggravated by surrounding bones.  Women are more likely than men to have an occurrence of this foot condition.

What Increases the Chances of having Morton’s Neuroma?

-Ill-fitting high heels or shoes that add pressure to the toe or foot area.
-Jogging, running and any sports that involve constant impact to the foot area.
-Flat feet, bunions, and any other foot deformity may put you at a higher risk for developing Morton’s neuroma.

If you suspect that you may have this condition, you should visit your podiatrist. A podiatrist will first conduct a thorough physical examination to check for palpable masses between the bones of the foot.
