If you suspect you have Morton’s Neuroma, the first step is to ease the pain. Icing the painful area and using painkillers may help to reduce the pain. A change of footwear with a larger toebox will also help by relieving pressure. Avoiding high heels or sports that require tight-fitting shoes (such as skiing) will also help to reduce the pain.
If the pain persists, consult a podiatrist who will be able to assess your condition and the biomechanics of your feet to determine the appropriate treatment.
Conservative therapies such as shockwave therapy (ESWT) and Super Inductive System (SIS) may be able to effectively relieve your pain. If your condition is worsened by pre-existing biomechanical issues such as flat feet, full custom orthotics may be prescribed by a podiatrist to prevent the condition from worsening.
If all conservative options have been exhausted, foot surgery will be the last option to remove the neuroma to provide pain relief.
