Morton’s Neuroma (Morton-Metatarsalgia)
Between the 3rd and 4th toe, sometimes also between the 2nd and 3rd toe, a particular distribution of nerves can cumulatively lead to irritation or even the growth of a painful tumour of nerve tissue (neuroma).
Conservative therapies include, for example, treatment with injections and the provision of special inserts, designed to optimise walking. Surgical treatment frees the nerves and removes the tumour of nerve tissue. A loss of sensitivity in the area covered by the affected nerve can be associated with this.
