Morton’s Neuroma

A neuroma, sometimes known as Morton’s neuroma is a fibrous thickening of a nerve in the front of the foot. The correct title for a neuroma is a perineural fibrosis. Neuromas can be found in between any of the long bones of the forefoot (metatarsals) yet commonly occur between the 3rd and 4th metatarsals. They occur due to friction or compression on the effected nerve perhaps from tight shoes or flat feet.
