MD PODIATRIST, DR. GENE MIRKIN STATES, "IF YOU HAVE PAIN BETWEEN THE THIRD AND FOURTH TOES, YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE MORTON'S NEUROMA.  THIS IS A SWELLING OR SCARRING OF THE NERVE.  SYMPTOMS CAN BE CRAMPING, BURNING, AND/OR FEELING LIKE AN ICE PICK IS BEING PUSHED BETWEEN THE TOES.  USUALLY RELIEF IS OBTAINED BY REMOVING THE SHOE AND MASSAGING THE AREA.  OTHER POSSIBLE DIAGNOSIS INCLUDE METATARSALGIA, BURSITIS, CAPSULITITIS, GANGLION CYST, OR EVEN A STRESS FRACTURE.  THE NEUROMA DIAGNOSIS IS CONFIRMED BY PINCHING THE SPACE BETWEEN THE THIRD AND FOURTH TOES WHILE SQUEEZING THE FOOT FROM SIDE TO SIDE.  IF THE SYMPTOMS ARE REDUCED, THAT PRETTY MUCH CONFIRMS IT.  IT CAN BE FURTHERED CONFIRMED BY ULTRASOUND OR MRI, BUT MRI IS USUALLY UNNECESSARY IN MY OPINION."

DR. JOHN A. HARDY, RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR AND OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS BELIEVES IN CONSERVATIVE CARE WHENEVER POSSIBLE.  MOST CASES OF MORTON'S NEUROMA DO NOT REQUIRE SURGERY.  THERE ARE MANY EFFECTIVE CONSERVATIVE APPROACHES WHICH WILL SUCCESSFULLY TREAT THIS CONDITION SUCH AS CUSTOM ORTHOTICS WITH A METATARSAL PAD, PHYSICAL THERAPY, ICE, AND STRETCHES AND EXERCISES.

SURGICAL INTERVENTION AMD MEDICATIONS ARE ALWAYS USED AS A LAST RESORT AS BOTH COME WITH SIDE EFFECTS WHICH CANNOT BE PREDICTED.
