Are you experiencing persistent foot pain, particularly in the ball of your foot? Morton’s neuroma, a common condition, may be the cause. At The Foot Room in Broughton, our specialised biomechanics team is equipped with the expertise and interventions necessary to address the underlying causes of Morton’s neuroma and provide effective relief.
What is Morton’s Neuroma?
Morton’s neuroma is a painful condition that affects the nerves between the toes, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. It involves the thickening of the tissues surrounding the nerve, leading to inflammation, pain, and discomfort. The condition can be caused by various factors, including:
- Footwear: Tight, narrow shoes or high heels that compress the toes and increase pressure on the nerves can contribute to the development of Morton’s neuroma.
- Biomechanical Factors: Abnormal foot mechanics, such as overpronation (excessive inward rolling) or excessive stress on the forefoot, can lead to the formation of Morton’s neuroma.
How Can Our Biomechanics Team Help?
At The Foot Room, our experienced biomechanics team specialises in diagnosing and treating Morton’s neuroma. We provide personalised interventions tailored to your specific needs, using advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Here’s how we can assist you:
- Comprehensive Assessment: Our biomechanics experts will conduct a thorough evaluation of your feet, including examining the affected area, to identify the presence of Morton’s neuroma and any contributing factors.
- Gait Analysis: Using advanced gait analysis technology, we analyse your walking or running patterns to assess foot mechanics and identify any irregularities that may be exacerbating Morton’s neuroma.
- Custom Orthotics: If foot misalignment or faulty mechanics contribute to Morton’s neuroma, we can prescribe custom orthotic devices. These specially designed shoe inserts provide support, correct alignment, and help alleviate pressure on the affected area.
- Footwear Recommendations: Proper footwear is essential in managing Morton’s neuroma. Our biomechanics team can provide guidance on selecting shoes that offer adequate room for the toes, proper cushioning, and support to reduce pressure on the affected nerve.
- Foot strengthening and stretching Techniques: We recommend specialised techniques to help improve flexibility and relieve pressure on the affected area.
