Step Into Comfort: Acupuncture Solutions for Morton’s Neuroma
Morton’s Neuroma is a foot condition characterized by the thickening of tissue around a nerve leading to the toes. Morton’s Neuroma typically affects the ball of the foot and can result in symptoms such as sharp pain, tingling, numbness, and the feeling of a foreign object like a pebble inside the shoe.
This neuroma often occurs between the third and fourth toes, and it’s more prevalent in women than men. The condition can develop due to a variety of factors, including wearing tight shoes, high heels, or participating in activities that put repeated pressure on the forefoot.
Benefits of Acupuncture for Morton’s Neuroma:
The key trigger of pain and discomfort caused by Morton’s neuroma is the thickening (or scaring) of soft tissues around the nerve. Acupuncture serves to break down the scar tissue, allowing for the tissue to rejuvenate. The treatments can also:
- Relieve Pain: Acupuncture helps manage and alleviate the pain associated with Morton’s Neuroma by triggering the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain relievers.
- Reduce Inflammation: By targeting specific points, acupuncture can contribute to reducing inflammation around the affected nerve.
- Enhance Nerve Function: Acupuncture aims to promote optimal nerve function, aiding in the relief of tingling and numbness.
