Neuroma (Morton’s Neuroma): This is a very painful, swollen nerve condition that occurs at the bottom of the foot where your toes begin. It is usually the 2nd and 3rd toes or the 3rd and 4th toes, however, it is often hard to distinguish and pinpoint which toe is actually causing the pain. The feeling is described as that when you feel as if you have a rolled-up sock in your shoe. A properly chosen orthotic with a “metatarsal pad” can help relieve your pain by spreading the metatarsals that are putting pressure on the swollen nerve.
