You may or may not realize you have Morton’s neuroma, as it isn’t always painful.

This is a condition that thickens the tissue around a nerve in the ball of your foot, between your arch and toes.

Morton’s neuroma occurs most commonly in middle-aged women and can be caused by high heels, too-tight shoes, athletics requiring repetitive movements, or foot or gait abnormality.

Switching shoes or resting your feet may be first-line treatments for the condition.

If the condition doesn’t improve, your doctor will examine the foot and create a treatment plan that may include foot pads, physical therapy, and other interventions.
