Morton’s Neuroma Part II, Treatment Options

You’ve worn the high-heeled shoes, you had your night of dancing… but now your foot hurts! You suspect a Morton’s Neuroma (based on what you learned in our previous post). What can you do to help ease the pain?

There are many home remedies for Morton’s Neuroma that you can start with. These conservative treatments are simple and can really help take the edge off of the pain to help you recover. For starters, try taking some over-the-counter, non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory medication. This may help to alleviate a brief flair by reducing the swelling. A good example is ibuprofen. Also, give ice a try. A good method is to freeze a bottle of water, place it on the ground, and roll your foot over it while sitting. You should also give your feet a rest! Take some time away from the high heels, or take a break from high impact exercising, to allow the neuroma to heal.

If conservative treatments are not enough, your doctor has many options available to treat a Morton’s Neuroma. Treatment may start with a simple shoe insert. The appropriate support can take the extra pressure off of the nerve. The next step may be to use steroid injections. These injections will also reduce swelling. If the neuroma is severe enough, surgery could be the only option. If surgery is necessary, your doctor will discuss the different procedures available to you so that together you can find the best option. In the end, try to avoid your high heels. However, you still may find yourself with some burning at the toes. If you do, set up an appointment today to see what we can do to find your happy feet.
