What Is Morton’s Neuroma?
“Morton’s neuroma is a benign but painful condition that affects the ball of the foot. It’s also called an intermetatarsal neuroma because it’s located in the ball of the foot between your metatarsal bones. It happens when the tissue around a nerve that leads to a toe thickens from irritation or compression.” [Healthline.com] Neuromas can develop anywhere in the body, however, they commonly occur in the ball of the foot, usually in one of the intermetatarsal nerves. An interdigital neuroma is the proper name used to describe the nerve mass or enlargement when it occurs in between the toes. As with most toe and foot deformities, interdigital neuromas are more likely to occur in women than in men. Neuromas of the toes can arise between any of the long bones in the foot, those that occur between the third and fourth metatarsal bones are commonly referred to as Morton’s neuromas. If the neuroma develops between any other bones, it is referred to as an interdigital neuroma, not a Morton’s neuroma. Neuromas are benign, noncancerous growths that often respond to natural treatment options and approaches, surgery should always be a last resort option.
Interdigital Neuroma Symptoms
When it comes to having an interdigital neuroma, there are quite a few annoying symptoms that can accompany it and impact your day-to-day life, including:
- Foot cramps.
- Numbness of the foot.
- Feeling like you are walking or standing on a lump.
- Tingling/numb sensation between the toes.
- Burning/stabbing pain in the ball of the foot that is affected by the neuroma.
What Causes An Interdigital Neuroma?
There are various factors that can contribute to the formation of interdigital and Morton’s neuromas, these include flat feet, high-heeled shoes, high foot arched shoes, bunions, hammertoes and other foot/toe problems. What typically happens is that one of the intermetatarsal nerves is pinched and stretched across the ball of the foot, resulting in various symptoms and discomfort.
