Morton’s disease means you have pain in the front of the foot. This is because, for a long time, a nerve was squeezed between two of the front legs. Then the nerve can be thickened and pinched further.
Morton’s disease may be due to shoes that fit poorly or are too tightly laced, or that the front foot arch is a little sunken. But often there is no clear cause.
Most people get rid of the trouble by changing shoes or obtaining special shoe inserts.
Morton’s disease is quite common and occurs at all ages.
Symptoms of Morton’s disease
Common symptoms of Morton’s disease:
- The front of the foot temporarily fades away.
- It makes much evil in the forefoot and feels like a burning and cutting sensation that comes and goes.
The hassles usually get worse when you strain your foot.
When and where should I seek care?
You can contact a healthcare center if you have a lot of pain in the foot and it does not go over.
Treatment of Morton’s disease
Good shoes reduce the hassle. The shoes should be wide and support the front of the foot arch. Special shoe inserts, called the front pelvis, can help relieve the front foot arch so that the nerves are no longer pinched. Shoe inserts can be purchased at some shoe stores or tested by an orthopedic shoe technician.
A cortisone syringe can provide relief if the posts do not produce enough effect and you have major problems. In some cases, minor surgery is needed to reduce the pressure on the nerve. You may need to be on sick leave if you have a job where you stand a lot.
Influence and participate in your care
You can seek care at any medical center or open specialist clinic you want throughout the country.
In order for you to be involved in your care and treatment of Morton’s disease, it is important that you understand the information you receive from the healthcare staff.
