Can Morton’s neuroma be prevented?
You can take steps to prevent Morton’s neuroma:
- Don’t wear tight or high-heeled shoes for long periods.
- Wear shoes with a wide toe box, so your toes aren’t cramped.
- When you’re more active, wear athletic shoes with plenty of padding to cushion the balls of your feet.
- Maintain a healthy weight, since extra pounds put more pressure on your foot.
- For athletes, talk to your coach or trainer to discuss tweaking activities for less pressure on the foot.
