 Morton's NeuromaAccording to theChicago Tribune’s Harvard Health Letters, wearing shoes or boots are too tight or having bunions can potentially lead to the development of Morton’s Neuroma. Symptoms from Morton’s Neuroma, in addition to other adverse foot conditions, can be noticed and even made worse during the colder months and weather. "Colder weather makes you realize there's a problem," says Dr. Jim Ioli, assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at Harvard Medical School. "You're no longer wearing sandals, and your feet are enclosed in shoes. That brings pain to your attention."

Dr. Ioli advises any symptoms that are being experienced, such as pain or fallen arches, need be addressed immediately. In addition, Dr. Ioli prescribes over the counter supports and of course wearing supportive shoes in order to maintain proper foot health.

If you think you may be suffering from Morton’s Neuromaor other heel-related injuries, don’t be afraid to contact a podiatrist like Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can help treat your injuries and prevent any permanent damage.

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. When a person has Morton's neuroma, it can feel as if they are walking on stones or marbles.

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. The podiatrist will also apply pressure to the foot or toe area to replicate the pain a person experiences when active. The podiatrist may also prescribe an x-ray to rule out other conditions or problems.
