Morton's Neuroma: Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment

What is the treatment for Morton’s Neuroma?

Following are the most common forms of treatment strategies that are used in curing Morton’s Neuroma:

  • Footwear Changes: One suffering from Morton’s Neuromamust avoid wearing high heels or tight shoes and must switch to flats or low heels and wider shoes, with soft soles. This helps the bones spread out and may reduce the pressure exerted on the nerves.
  • Injections:  Corticosteroid medications can reduce the swelling and inflammation of the nerve, bringing some relief.
  • Orthoses: These are tailor-made shoe inserts and pads that help relieve irritation by lifting and separating the bones, reducing the pressure exerted on the nerve.
  • Decompression Surgery: Decompression surgery is performed when the condition doesn’t respond to any of the non-surgical treatments. In the decompression surgery, the pressure exerted on the nerve is reduced which in turn reduces the inflammation, swelling, and pain.
  • Removal Of The Nerve: When nothing works, and the patient is under severe pain, the doctors may decide to remove the nerve itself.
  • Medication: Patients are given painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications to help soothe the pain and reduce the swelling and inflammation.
