Morton's Neuroma Treatments
Every year countless people experience pain between their toes that they attribute to the footwear they have on. While using footwear that is unsupportive can lead to complications and is generally a bad idea, there are a number of conditions that have nothing to do with the footwear and stem directly from a problem in the nerves of the foot that is triggered once squeezed inside a boot, sneaker or shoe. This painful condition that occurs between the toes is known as Morton’s Neuroma.Here at Walk Without Pain, Morton’s neuroma treatment is just one of our varied services delivered by our team of expert podiatrists. Our four clinics are dotted around Brisbane and there you can expect to find prices that are a little more affordable, but a level of care that follows best practice procedures and exploits the latest technological advances.
Instead of spending countless amounts of dollars on new shoes and trying out the latest footwear in the hope that it will relieve you of this pain, we encourage those currently suffering from this condition to book an appointment so that we can deliver sustained relief. If a change of shoes has not brought relief, then it is likely that you will need to explore other routes and this is where we have the expertise and know-how.
Morton’s Neuroma Treatment Options
Let’s get the fear factor out of the way first. Surgery is only really used in extremely rare cases, so, for the time being, assume that your pain is no different to countless other Australian patients that we have successfully treated here at Walk Without Pain. There are a number of other ways that Morton’s Neuroma treatment can be delivered.
Something as simple as adding padding to your shoes could make all the difference. What this achieves is a greater spread between the toes that relieves the pressure on the affected nerve. For some patients, the pain is as a result of one metatarsal bone colliding with another, and so padding can be put in place to lift one so that this impact no longer is a problem.
Where padding fails to address the problem adequately, customised orthotics can be created and tailored to the structure of your foot. Inserting these into your footwear will actively prevent the problem from repeating by straightening the foot and thereby rotating the metatarsals to their thinnest position.
Radiofrequency ablation offers a simple alternative to surgery and this involves killing the tissue in the nerve by inserting a probe and heating it. Patients often opt for this over surgery because fewer complications arise in the aftermath of this procedure.
