Morton’s Neuroma Treatment – Mesa, AZ
Understanding the cause of your Morton’s Neuroma is they key to proper Morton’s Neuroma treatment. Being a holistic clinic, we want to treat foot neuromas in the most natural way possible.
Because the pain and even numbness from Morton’s nueuromas can be so intense and conventional treatment of corticosteroids or surgery create way too many dangerous side effects, finding a natural treatment for Morton’s neuroma is key! We highly recommend you avoid surgery if at all possible.
What Is Morton’s Neuroma?
A neuroma is a swelling of the nerve tissue. It is a thickening of the tissue that surrounds the nerves that lead to the toes. With nerve entrapment, you will get numbness and tingling and with neuroma inflammation you will get localized pain.
What are the symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma?
The most common symptoms include sharp pain in the ball of the foot when pushing off or stepping. It often feels like you are stepping on a pebble or that your sock is bunched up. (Except often its a lot more painful than that!)
How do you Diagnose Morton’s Neuroma?
Neuromas are often diagnosed by a podiatrist, but if you have had one before, you may diagnose it yourself. The “Mulder’s click” is a diagnostic test where you can feel a shift between the toes that creates a snap or click. A complete history and palpation of the foot can also help with the diagnosis.
At Home Morton’s Neuroma Treatment? (the slower way)
- Eliminate heels! Any shoe with a heel puts tremendous stress on the nerves in the forefoot. This can be hard news to take, but you can’t play around with a neuroma.
- Wide Toe Boxes! – Traditional shoes compress the toes by coming to a sharp point at the end. Getting a zero drop shoe with a wide toe box will greatly enhance your foot comfort.
- Toe spacers! – If your foot doesn’t naturally splay or if you can see you have a few toes that stick together, you need to invest in toes spacers. These can be worn at night or more ideally they are worn inside your wide toe box shoes or bare feet all day long.
- Nutrition – Avoid inflammatory processed and refined oils. These contribute to nerve inflammation.
- Metatarsal Pads – Use metatarsal pads to re-establish your fatty pad on the bottom of your foot.
- Exercise – Strengthen your calf muscles and release your tibialis anterior. The musculature in the foot is what allowed the neuroma to occur in the first place, strengthening your weakened muscles will allow the other therapies to last.
In general, treatment for Morton’s Neuroma at home can take between 2 months and 12 months, depending on factors such as age, overall health, dedication to daily therapies, etc.

Morton’s neuroma pain is usually reduced significantly within the first 5 minutes of treatment and then we are able to start rehab immediately by strengthening the muscles of the foot.
