Morton's Neuroma

Causes of Morton’s Neuroma

People with foot issues such as hammer toes, bunions, flat feet or highly-flexible feet are more likely to develop Morton's neuromas. Other causes include the following:

  •     Wearing shoes with a toe box that is too tight, which can compress the toes and forefoot.
  •     Wearing high-heeled shoes, which force the forefoot into too tight a toe box and increases pressure on the forefoot.
  •     Any repetitive impact or trauma to the forefoot, especially from court or racket sports and running.
