What is Morton’s Neuroma?

Morton’s neuroma is a benign neuroma (non-malignant tumour) of an intermetatarsal plantar nerve. It begins as a low-grade entrapment of a single nerve (typically between the second or third toe spaces). This increased pressure causes low-grade repetitive trauma to the nerve resulting in chronic irritation and the subsequent development of a benign growth within the nerve. Morton’s neuroma typically presents as gradual onset of pain under the sole of the foot, occasionally accompanied by numbness, tingling or a burning sensation into the related toes. These symptoms may decrease when barefoot.
