    Morton’s Neuroma

    Morton's neuroma occurs as the nerve passes under the ligament connecting the toe bones (metatarsals) in the forefoot. Morton's neuroma most frequently develops between the third and fourth toes, usually in response to irritation, trauma or excessive pressure. The incidence of Morton's neuroma is 8 to 10 times greater in women than in men.

    Symptoms :


  • Normally, there are no outward signs, such as a lump, because this is not really a tumor.
  • Burning pain in the ball of the foot that may radiate into the toes. The pain generally intensifies with activity or wearing shoes. Night pain is rare.
  • There may also be numbness in the toes, or an unpleasant feeling in the toes.

    Runners may feel pain as they push off from the starting block. High-heeled shoes, which put the foot in a similar position to the push-off, can also aggravate the condition. Tight, narrow shoes also aggravate this condition by compressing the toe bones and pinching the nerve.

    Z-CoiL Footwear benefit :

    Wearing shoes with a high and wide toe box, like RX® shoes, is important for relieving neuroma pain. RX® shoes also feature nearly an inch of soft, resilient neoprene-like cushioning at the forefoot, plus a rocker-bottom sole which helps to propel you quickly over the painful areas of the forefoot. Trained and authorized RX® fitters can also add special padding around the neuroma to relieve pressure at the site.
