Woman’s fashion shoes are responsible for causing foot pain due to Morton’s neuroma in millions of woman each year
Approximately 80% of patients who are diagnosed with Morton’s neuroma at The London Podiatry Centre are women. These same women are often helped by wearing more protective shock absorbing shoes. There seems little doubt that the condition is therefore caused by shoes in the vast majority of patients and simply changing your shoes can resolve the problem if the nerve has not yet become too enlarged. If the nerve is too enlarged that it can be broken down through treatments such as cryosurgery but it is important to pay attention to your shoes afterwards, otherwise the condition may recur or develop in the other foot.
