Morton's neuroma treatment.

Morton’s Neuroma Treatment

Morton’s Neuroma also known as Morton’s metatarsalgia or interdigital neuroma, is a condition characterised by severe pain in the foot, particularly between the third and fourth toes. It can significantly impact one’s quality of life, causing discomfort and hindering daily activities. The affected individual may experience the sensation of having a pebble or lump in their shoe.

It is a debilitating condition more prevalent in women than men and this may be attributed to factors such as wearing tight or high-heeled shoes, which can exert pressure on the feet and contribute to the development of the condition. What’s more, Morton’s neuroma primarily affects ladies in middle age as this age group is more likely to have a longer history of wearing footwear that may contribute to the development of the condition. However, men can also be affected by Morton’s neuroma, while runners may also be at risk due to the repetitive pressure on the toes during running.

Morton’s Neuroma can occur in one foot or both feet and while it usually affects the nerve between the third and fourth toes, sometimes it can occur between the second and third toes.

Identifying Morton’s Neuroma: Individuals experiencing Morton’s Neuroma may initially notice a tingling sensation between their toes, which gradually intensifies over time. This sensation may progress to a sharp shooting or burning pain in the ball of the foot or at the base of the toes. Numbness in the toes can also be present.

Morton’s Neuroma Treatment

Individuals experiencing Morton’s Neuroma may initially notice a tingling sensation between their toes, which gradually intensifies over time. This sensation may progress to a sharp shooting or burning pain in the ball of the foot or at the base of the toes. Numbness in the toes can also be present.

Morton’s Neuroma Shockwave Treatment

Shockwave therapy has emerged as an effective alternative to invasive surgical procedures for Morton’s Neuroma. During the treatment, the affected area is isolated, and focused shockwave equipment delivers gentle impulses to the area. The intensity of the impulses gradually increases, with minimal discomfort experienced by the patient. The shockwave sound waves induce microtrauma, which stimulates the healing process by attracting blood vessels and nutrients to the neuroma.

Our experts have had many successes using Focused ShockWave Therapy (FSWT) to treat Morton’s Neuroma and patients have found it a better alternative than having to face invasive surgery.

Generally, Morton’s Neuroma shockwave treatment resolves the condition after three to four sessions, depending on the individual’s condition and the duration of their suffering. Early diagnosis can significantly reduce the number of required sessions.

Shockwave Therapy & Morton’s Neuroma Research

In a study published in the Journal of American Podiatric Medical Association in 2016 the authors reported that, “Patients receiving ESWT exhibited significantly decreased VAS scores 1 and 4 weeks after treatment relative to baseline”, (1)

Studies like these are in line with our own experience of successfully treating patients with Morton’s neuroma.

We administer EMTT through a handheld device that is placed over the affected area. The treatment is painless and non-invasive, and typically takes just a few minutes to complete. Patients may receive several EMTT sessions over the course of a few weeks, depending on the severity of their symptoms and the extent of their injury.

We are one of the few clinics in the country offering this as a solution to this painful condition and we recommend you book an appointment soon.

EMTT Therapy for Morton’s Neuroma

We are now using ElectroMagnetic Transduction Therapy (EMTT) in conjunction with Shockwave therapy as we have found the combination of the two treatments especially effective for dealing with Morton’s neuroma.

EMTT is a non-invasive treatment that uses electromagnetic fields to stimulate healing in the affected area. These fields can stimulate the production of growth factors and other signalling molecules that promote tissue repair and regeneration. EMTT can also help reduce pain and inflammation by increasing blood flow and reducing the activity of pain receptors in the affected area.

 The treatment works by producing a pulsed electromagnetic field that penetrates the tissues of the shoulder joint and stimulates cellular activity. This increased cellular activity can help to reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, and promote tissue repair, all of which can improve the symptoms of Morton’s neuroma.

One of the major advantages of EMTT is that it is a non-invasive treatment that does not require any medication or surgery. This makes it a safe and convenient treatment option for patients who are looking for a non-invasive alternative to more invasive treatments.
