Customized Insoles For Morton's Neuroma

Morton's Neuroma is a benign tumor of nerve cells. Foot Morton's Neuroma is a painful condition affecting the feet (usually between third and fourth toes).

The patient feels akin to standing on pebbles! Basically, the condition is caused by thickening of the toe nerve tissues. In turn, a sharp burning pain can be felt around the ball of the foot. Apart from the ball of the foot, it can occur in other locations of the foot as well.

The Metatarsal Foot Morton's Neuroma is a clinical condition attributed to the thickening of the sheath of the plantar​ inter-digital nerve. This condition also called as inter-metatarsal Neuroma causes irritation and pain. Other names for the condition include Morton's disease, Morton's neuralgia, Morton's nerve entrapment, etc.

Women remain at a higher risk of developing the condition. Wearing ill-fitted or high heels can place extra pressure on the toes and worsen the problem.

The problem may improve by opting for custom designed boots for Morton's Neuroma.

There are special women's Morton's Neuroma shoe inserts insoles that are sold as Morton's Neuroma orthotic insoles in the market.

How Morton's Neuroma Arises?

Morton's Neuroma diagnosis is preceded by the painful irritation of balls of the foot.

The issue is caused by thickening of nerves. A compression results in the enlargement of foot nerve. This causes a permanent damage to the foot nerves.

Therefore, Morton's Neuroma is caused by any condition that leads to compression or irritation. The most common causes include:

  • Wearing high heels.
  • Tapered toe box design.
  • Issues like: hammer toes, bunions, and flat feet.
  • Repetitive irritation in the foot.
  • High foot arches.
  • An Injury or trauma to the foot nerves.
  • Ballet and racquet sports.
  • Any other gait abnormality.

Morton's Neuroma diagnosis becomes easy if you identify any of the above conditions in the early stages.


Normally pain and burning sensations are two major giveaways of the condition. Apart from this, there occur no outward signs of the problem.

The issue arises as soon as the foot bears the body weight.

A sharp shooting pain affects the adjacent sides. In Morton's Neuroma, both feet may also be affected due to the repetitive nature of the problem. In some cases, the issue starts after a brief period of walking with a dull pain in the third and the fourth toe.

The patient may complain about pain and feeling of the presence of marble in shoes. He may end up removing the shoes to find the pebble.

The common symptoms of Morton's Neuroma include:

  • Feeling of standing on pebbles or folded socks.
  • Burning pain like as if a red-hot needle is inserted in the balls of the feet. This may also radiate to the toes.
  • Paresthesia, i.e. tingling or numbness in the toe region.
  • The sensation of pins and needles.
  • An unpleasant sensation while walking or playing sports.
  • Feeling of pushing off from the starting block while running.
  • Pinching of nerves on wearing tight shoes.
  • The problem tends to worsen on wearing tight or high heeled footwear.
  • Pain may be constant. It may last for days and weeks.
  • There are lower instances of pain at night.

In some cases, the patient may even develop a fear of walking and placing feet on the ground. Extreme cases of Morton’s Neuroma in both feet have also been observed.

Therefore, it is advisable to consult with your doctor if the pain sustains even after changing your footwear.

Diagnosis And Treatment For Morton's Neuroma

A physical examination by a physician can detect the issue. By placing pressure on bones and looking for calluses, he may be able to detect the cause of pain. An MRI scan can also reveal the disease. Short term Morton's Neuroma treatment includes resting the feet, wearing better-fitted shoes and ice pack.

Long-term Morton's Neuroma cure:

  • Changes in footwear: Avoid wearing high heels and ill-fitted shoes. By opting for proper fitting shoes, bones tend to spread and the pressure on the nerves reduces. Hence, the foot receives time to heal from the day’s pressure.

  • Avoiding repetitive activities and sports: Sports like running, ballet, tennis and badminton are highly repetitive in nature. This cause the pressure to shift on toes and worsen the problem. Thus, if possible, avoid these activities.

  • Orthoses: Morton's Neuroma cure includes opting for custom shoe inserts and pads. Morton's Neuroma foot insoles relieve irritation by lifting the bones. Shoe insoles for Morton's Neuroma are also designed to separate the bones.

  • Cortisone injections: An injection of cortisone medication reduces the inflammation and swelling. This brings relief from the foot pain. Similarly, anti-inflammatory medications also provide a considerable amount of relief for up to six weeks to the patient. The step can be repeated again for better results.

  • Surgery: Foot surgery is another option for treatment of Morton's Neuroma. Surgery involves resection of the nerve and has a shorter recovery period.

The surgery can be approached in extreme cases. However, utilizing the benefit of a 3D custom insole for the treatment of Morton's Neuroma is the best option. The inserting of shoe insoles for Morton's Neuroma can help remove the need for surgery completely.
