Re: Morton's neuroma

This is coming from a patient's perspective. I had a MN for 3 months before i had it treated properly. heres my story:

it was caused from bad shoes. so first off, make sure you are wearing quality shoes that fit correctly. go to a running store and tell them your problem or get some good open toed sandals.

also, well this is probably the most important. see a specialist, make sure you see a podiatrist. an injection will work along with orthotics. try to get both. a lot of the times MNs are cause by mechanical problems in your feet, ie they way you naturaly walk (coupled with bad footwear).

once you a. get quality shoes and b. get orthotics and c. get an injection, you should be ok.

it is only after these steps that i would ask about surgery. therefore im saying conservative treatment should work for your MN...well it did for me.

good luck!
