A sensation like walking on a marble…
Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of the sheath of the nerve that runs between the 3rd and 4th toes (most commonly). It technically is not a neuroma at all (which is a nerve tumour) but does form a mass of tissue in an otherwise cramped space that very uncomfortably presses on the nearest nerves.
How can you help remove this marble…?!
This condition could have developed for several reasons and you may have already looked at your footwear and whether anything can be done to alleviate the discomfort without much intervention – orthotics is another option.
It may be that muscle tension and muscle fascial restrictions are present along the posterior aspect of the leg in which case acupuncture and expert bodywork can help to allow the affected nerve tissue to move and work more freely.
Massage to create space between the metatarsals (toes) can also be applied directly to the affected area and is also effective.
