Occasionally we could experience an unexpected shooting pain in one of our feet. This shooting pain is commonly felt between your 3rd and 4th toes.This pain generally are a neuroma or as it is also known, Morton’s Neuroma. This is a frequent foot problem seen by Podiatrists. When you have a neuroma you will have inflammation and shooting pain in the area. The signs and symptoms that you will experience if you have a neuroma usually are often sharp shooting pain, burning, numbness, tingling, cramping pains in the front part of the foot and sometimes you will have deficiencies in sensation in that part of the foot.
The actual cause of the neuroma is commonly because the bones of the 3rd and 4th toes are squeezing a nerve that is situated between the two. You will get the signs and symptoms of the neuroma after there's been considerable stress on the ball of your foot. The activities which cause this kind of force are walking, standing, leaping or even running. They are high-impact exercises that have been known to place a large amount of strain and stress on your feet. The other way that you may get this issue is by wearing shoes with sharp toes and higher heels. The high heels places strain on the feet as the weight of the body is sustained by the front area of your foot. While there is no other balance for the feet you are forced to depend upon the ball of the foot to stabilize the body while you're walking, standing or any other exercise.
Neuromas certainly are a curable foot disorder that could also be avoided from occurring altogether. The first step to dealing with the neuroma would be to pick and use the correct footwear. The footwear that you ought to pick should have a wide area for the ball of the foot and the top of the shoes probably should not press down onto your feet. You should then think about using a foot orthotic that's been created with a metatarsal pad. The pad should be positioned behind the ball of the feet. With the metatarsal dome put in this spot the strain on the feet are relieved since the weight on the foot is distributed evenly throughout the foot. If these self-help measures don't work, then go to a podiatrist for other options.
