Morton’s Neuroma

What is Morton’s Neuroma?

When a nerve tissue grows in the foot and becomes inflammatory, it’s called a neuroma. Anatomically, the swollen nerve tissue is usually between the second and third or the third and fourth heads of metatarsals. 

 When the bones of the forefoot come together, they rub against the foot nerve present in the adjoining toes.

Whenever you flex, you will feel a clicking sound in your toes; it can also feel like the sensation of walking on small stones or sharp sensations underside your foot

Injury, stress, or irritation in nerves that lead to neuroma can be due to problematic footwear such as high heels or tight shoes. It can also be caused due to deformities in the foot or due to activity levels.
