Conservative treatment of Morton’s Neuroma
What is a Morton's Neuroma?
It is a trapped nerve in your foot. It can be painful giving shooting pains into the toes. In early stages it can cause numbness and tingling in the front of your foot and toes.
Poor walking styles can help create a nerve entrapment within the foot. At Fitter feet for Life an assessment of how your foot moves is made by filming you walking and then replaying your movements in slow motion. A Foot support can be prescribed to re-position your foot to give pain relief from the Morton's Neuroma.
Steroid injections have been researched and proven to be a successful treatment for Morton's neuroma. They reduce the inflammation in the area thereby reducing pain.
Therapeutic laser can be used to increase mobility and give pain relief. It is used as an alternative to Steroid therapy.
