There are times we could feel an abrupt sharp pain in one of our feet. This sharp pain is generally felt between your 3rd and 4th toes.This pain is commonly a neuroma or as it is also called, Morton’s Neuroma. This is a common foot problem seen by Podiatrists. When you've got a neuroma there will be swelling and shooting pain in the area. The signs and symptoms that you're going to feel if you do have a neuroma commonly are often sharp shooting pain, burning, numbness, prickling, cramping pains in the front part of the foot and in some cases you will have deficiencies in feeling in that area of the foot.
The actual cause of the neuroma is frequently because the bones of the 3rd and 4th toes are squeezing a nerve that is located between them. You may get the signs and symptoms of the neuroma just after there has been significant force on the front of your foot. Those activities which cause this kind of force are walking, standing, jumping or even sprinting. These are high-impact exercises which have been known to place a large amount of pressure and stress on the feet. The other way that you can get this condition is by using shoes with sharp toes and higher heels. The high heels places pressure on the foot as the weight of the body is sustained by the front area of your feet. As there is no other balance for the foot you are required to count on the ball of the foot to stabilize the body while you're walking, standing or any other exercise.
Neuromas are a treatable foot disorder that could also be prevented from happening in the first place. The first step to dealing with the neuroma is to choose and wear the correct shoes. The footwear that you need to pick must have a wide area for the toes and the top of the footwear ought not press down onto your feet. You should then consider using an that's been designed with a metatarsal support. The pad will be positioned behind the ball of the feet. By having the metatarsal dome placed in this spot the pressure on the foot is relieved because the weight on the foot is evenly distributed through the feet. In the event that these self-help measures don't work, then visit a podiatrist for other options.
