Causes of Mortons Neuroma
What causes Mortons's Neuroma? Well, anything that causes compression or irritation of the nerve can lead to the development of a neuroma in the foot. One of the most common offenders is wearing shoes that have a tapered toe box, or high-heeled shoes that cause the toes to be forced into the toe box.
People with certain foot deformities – bunions, hammertoes, flatfeet, or more flexible feet – are at higher risk for developing Morton's neuroma. Other potential causes of Morton's Neuroma are activities that involve repetitive irritation to the ball of the foot and toes, such as running or court sports. An injury or other type of trauma to the foot or toes may also lead to a Morton’s neuroma.
- May involve mechanical irritation of the nerve in the foot.
- Abnormal foot structure or mechanics (flatfeet or excess foot pronation) leads to irritation of the nerve.
- Tight fitting shoes or footwear may contribute to the problem.
