Morton’s Neuroma Forest Hill, Mt Waverley, Doveton, Blackburn, Burwood East
Morton’s Neuroma is an enlarged nerve that usually occurs in the third interspace, which is between the third and fourth toes.
Problems often develop in this area because part of the lateral plantar nerve combines with part of the medial plantar nerve here. When the two nerves combine, they are typically larger in diameter than those going to the other toes.
Above the nerve is a very strong ligament called the deep transverse metatarsal ligament that holds the metatarsal bone together and forms a roof over the nerve, creating a compartment.
