Pathologies

Morton’s neuroma

Morton’s neuroma is a nerve-related condition impacting the base of the toes. It causes pain and tingling and sometimes numbness in the forefoot.

Cause

This pathology is due to localized inflammation of a nerve located between two toes. It can be triggered by wearing narrow shoes or putting too much weight on the ball of the foot.

 

Treatment

A local corticosteroid injection can provide patients with temporary or permanent pain relief. If non-surgical treatment is not effective, the neuroma (benign tumour) can be excised surgically.
