You might have Morton’s Neuroma—but it might not be the problem.
Morton’s Neuroma is not an uncommon condition—studies indicate that between 30% and 54% of people, including asymptomatic people, have Morton’s Neuroma.
What could this mean for people with foot pain or with a diagnosis of Morton’s Neuroma?
It means that if someone has foot pain and is even diagnosed with Morton’s Neuroma—it may not be the Morton’s Neuroma causing the pain. Because Morton’s Neuroma is so common, even in asympomatic people, other diagnostic tests may be needed to determine the actual cause of the pain and the best way to get relief—particularly if more expensive or invasive treatments are being considered.
