Morton’s Neuroma - Podiatrist in Bethesda, MD and Springfield, VA
Dr. Paul Ross discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Morton’s Neuroma. http://www.paulrossdpm.com
A neuroma is an enlarged, benign growth of nerves, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. Neuromas are caused by tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. Pressure from poorly fitting shoes or an abnormal bone structure can also lead to this condition. Symptoms may include sensations of thickness, burning, numbness, tingling, or pain in the ball of the foot. Treatments generally include wearing corrective shoes or orthotics and/or receiving cortisone injections. In severe cases, surgical removal of the growth may be necessary.
