Understanding Morton's Neuroma With our Midtown Chiropractor Rockefeller Health & Medical
Morton's neuroma is a painful condition, but it's possible to treat it and reduce the pain you're in. Your Hell's Kitchen chiropractor has techniques that can help take pressure off the nerves leading to your toes. With the right treatment plan, it's possible to reduce symptoms or reverse the condition completely.
What Is Morton's Neuroma?
Morton's neuroma is a condition that occurs when one of the nerves leading to the toes becomes entrapped in thick tissue. If you have it, you may feel like there is a bump, like a rock, in your shoe or as if your sock is folded oddly. Some people feel pain, have numbness or have stinging sensations.
How Will Our Chiropractors Diagnose Morton's Neuroma?
Our NYC chiropractors will look at several factors. For instance, if you regularly wear heels, then that could be a potential cause of the condition. Our chiropractic team will also look for the following symptoms:
- Numbness or tingling in the toes
- Burning pain the ball of the foot
- Burning pain that radiates to the toes
- Unusual sensations, like feeling as if there are objects under your feet when there aren't
It's unusual for this condition to produce an obvious sign, like lumps or bumps. Instead, you'll need to let your chiropractor know about any concerns you have.
How Is Morton's Neuroma Treated?
Initially, treatment might be as easy as switching the type of shoes you're wearing. If you wear high heels regularly, for instance, switching to flat shoes may help relieve the pressure on the nerve. Some people benefit from other treatments provided by chiropractic care Midtown east. One such treatment is the manipulation of the phrenic nerve; this eases pain in the arches of the feet. In addition, manipulating the bones of the foot can also encourage the release of the trapped nerve as well as healing with increased circulation.
Other options may include:
- Spinal realignment
- Massage therapy
- Physical therapy
- Sports medicine
Morton's neuroma treatment benefits from increased circulation and good spinal alignment, so the weight of the body is appropriately spread out across the feet. With chiropractic care, it's possible to realign the spine and help encourage better distribution and the reduction of hardening of the tissues that press on the nerves.
