A NEUROMA IS A GROWTH OR TUMOR OF NERVE TISSUE.  IN THE FOOT, A NEUROMA IS A NERVE THAT BECOMES IRRITATED AND SWELLS UP.  IF THE NERVE STAYS IRRITATED, IT CAN BECOME THICKENED WHIC MAKES THE NERVE LARGER AND CAUSES MORE IRRITATION.  PAIN FROM A NEUROMA IS USUALLY FELT ON THE BALL OF THE FOOT.  ONE OF THE MOST COMMON NEUROMAS IS MORTON'S NEUROMA WHIC CAN ALSO BE KNOWN AS MORTON'S METATARSALGIA, MORTON'S NEURALGIA, PLANTAR NEUROMA AND INTERMETATARSAL NEUROMA.  IT MOST COMMONLY OCCURS BETWEEN THE SECOND AND THIRD INTERMETATARSAL SPACE AND THE THIRD AND FORTH.  MOST PEOPLE DO NOT CONSIDER IT A NEUROMA, BUT RATHER A FIBROMA.

IN OUR CLINIC WE TREAT IT WITH PHYSIOTHERAPY TO REDUCE ANY SWELLING, MAKE SURE THAT THE PATIENT IS WEARING PROPER FOOTWEAR THAT DOES NOT SQUEEZE THE TOES AND WE USUALLY PRESCRIBE CUSTOM ORTHOTICS WITH METATARSAL PADS TO REDUCE ANY PRESSURE ON THE NERVES.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT MY FOOT CLINIC FOR HONEST, COMPETENT CARE AT 416-465-8737.
