Morton’s neuroma is an ailment commonly caused by the collapse of the foot’s arch, causing a prolonged and consistent irritation of the nerves between the third and fourth toes, or less commonly, between the second and third. This irritation over prolonged periods creates a growth, much like a callus, around the nerve.

As that growth increases in size, direct pressure is placed upon the nerve and pain increases. With time, the growth can spread the toes apart, destabilizing the foot even further.

The best way to correct this process and relieve pressure on the nerve, the arch must be supported efficiently. To provide this support, we recommend Sole Supports orthotics. These custom orthotics are molded to your unique foot, providing you with the support you need to walk comfortably. For more information, schedule an appointment at our Carmichael, CA office.
