What is Morton's Neuroma?
What Causes Morton's Neuroma?
High heels or tight fitting footwear, such as worn in sports like skiing or rock climbing, can cause Morton’s Neuroma. The compression of the foot can cause the nerves within to become irritated and swollen, causing pain.
People who have other foot issues such as bunions, hammertoes, fallen or high arches are at a higher risk of experiencing Morton’s Neuroma, especially if they are putting a lot of stress on their feet, (eg. by doing lots of running).
When to Seek Treatment for Morton's Neuroma?
Early treatment of Morton's Neuroma facilitates faster recovery. Bowen Treatment can help alleviate the pain, and works to improve the circulation and rate of healing,
Without treatment and continuing activities that are aggravating the Neuroma the pain will likely get worse.
