Morton's neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of the foot. Morton's neuroma is the thickening of one of the nerves leading to the toes. It can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. The toes also may sting, burn or feel numb.


Conservative treatment for Morton's neuroma includes padding, icing, orthotic devices, activity modifications, shoe modifications, nonsteroid anti-inflmmatory medications and Injection therapy. 

Surgery may be considered for patients who have not responded adequately to non-surgical treatments. The podiatric surgeon will determine the approach that is best for your condition. Depending on the procedure performed, recovery periods may vary. In most cases patients can wear normal shoes in 10-14 days.

Associate Professor Reza Naraghi is finishing his PhD. studies with the University of Western Australia on 'The epidemiology and aetiology of Morton's neuroma'.
