Morton's Neuroma

For Your Information Only.

Morton's Neuroma, is a benign soft tissue mass that forms on the nerve which runs between the metatarsals (normally between the 3rd and 4th toes), in the ball of the foot.

When two metatarsal bones rub together, they pinch the nerve that runs between them. This repeated pinching, or repeated injury to the nerve, will cause the nerve to swell, and eventually a benign mass occurs at the site of the repeated injury.

Signs & Symptoms

Localized sharp or dull pain in the interspace between the third and fourth toes worsened by wearing shoes and by walking.


  • Flat feet / Pes Planus (See Orthotics).
  • Wearing high heels.
  • Wearing pointed toed shoes.
