A neuroma is an enlarged, benign growth of nerves, typically between the third and fourth toes. It’s caused by tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves, or due to pressure formed by shoes that don’t fit properly. People who have a neuroma may experience burning, numbness, tingling, or pain in the ball(s) of their feet/foot.
Fortunately, there are effective treatments, and we have them for you at Complete Foot Care. Some of the treatments Dr. Zomback might recommend, depending on your condition, include wearing corrective shoes or orthotics (which we provide!) or getting cortisone injections. Surgery is also a possibility to remove the growth if needed.
Morton’s neuroma is similar to neuroma in terms of how it develops and its symptoms. It typically develops between the third and fourth toes in response to irritation. Irritation can be caused by wearing high-heeled shoes, narrow shoes, or from trauma.
