What is Morton’s Neuroma?
When foot pain, burning, or tingling is caused by the entrapment or squeezing of a toe nerve, it is known as Morton’s neuroma, a condition affecting the ball of the foot. Many patients describe the feeling as “walking on a marble” or feeling as if there is a rock in their shoe. With Morton’s neuroma, foot pain and discomfort can make walking or even standing difficult and unpleasant. Over time, the pressure can lead to permanent nerve damage, so seeking timely treatment is important for lasting relief.
