Re: alcohol injections for Morton neuroma

This is an older technique that has enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity. The most descriptive article claims a high rate of success using a 4% solution of absolute alcohol in a local anesthetic.

Personally, I have not achieved the same high rates of success. Getting the alcohol can be difficult and it does not last indefinitely.

I know of no study that tests the use of this or any other injection for neuromas based on the length of time the neuroma has been symptomatic.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
