Morton's Neuroma: what it feels like, its causes, and how insoles with a matatarsal pad can help.
What is Morton's neuroma?
Morton's neuroma causes tingling, burning, toe cramping or shooting pains in the ball of the foot, with pain worsening when you apply pressure to the affected area. It can sometimes feel like there's something in your shoe, or like your sock is bunched up under the ball of your foot. This condition is caused by the thickening of tissue around nerves that travel between your metatarsal heads (the first big 'knuckle' of your toe bones in the ball of your foot). This tissue thickening could be caused by a variety of irritations, but it's often associated with chronic compression of the nerves from wearing cramped footwear, especially high heels.
So what's the solution?
A metatarsal (met) pad supports the metatarsals in their natural position and spacing, preventing them from becoming cramped, especially in the metatarsal heads. It also helps to promote the natural positioning of the padding under the ball of your foot, optimizing your natural shock-absorbing tissue to prevent your feet from absorbing excess stress. Lastly, a met pad helps to ensure that pressure is efficiently distributed and that no one point of your foot is carrying more weight than it can handle.
