Morton’s Neuroma

Understanding Morton’s Neuroma: Seeking Relief with Atwell Podiatry

Morton’s neuroma is a condition where a nerve becomes thickened due to irritation and compression, specifically occurring in the nerves that run between the toes of the feet. This can lead to sensations of numbness, tingling, pins and needles, burning, and shooting pain around the toe areas. It is commonly observed in middle-aged women and can affect individuals with flat feet and high-arched feet.


The primary causes of Morton’s neuroma include standing for prolonged periods, high-intensity sporting activities, and the use of narrow shoes with heels, which can exacerbate the condition.

Effective Treatment Options

At Atwell Podiatry, we prioritize providing comprehensive and effective treatments for Morton’s neuroma to alleviate discomfort and promote recovery. Our treatment modalities include:

  • Wider Shoewear: Choosing shoes with a wider toe box can alleviate pressure on the affected nerves, providing relief from discomfort.
  • Foot Mobilization: Improving joint range of motion through targeted foot mobilization techniques can reduce irritation and compression of the nerves, easing symptoms.
  • Dry Needling: This targeted treatment can effectively reduce muscle tightness in the affected area, aiding in the management of Morton’s neuroma.
  • Custom Orthotics: Our custom orthotic solutions are designed to alleviate pressure on the affected nerve area, promoting enhanced comfort and mobility.

When Surgery Is Necessary

In rare cases where conservative treatments have not provided relief, surgery may be considered as a last resort. This surgical intervention involves the physical removal of the affected nerve. Our expert podiatrists will carefully assess your condition and provide transparent guidance on the most suitable treatment approach for your specific needs.
