Pain in the ball of the foot is a very common condition. It can happen beneath the big toe or in the middle of the foot. There are many reasons for this kind of pain but a Morton’s neuroma is one of the most common causes. This is an inflammation of the nerve that travels through the foot. Sometimes it can be handled just by changing your shoes. Tight shoes will cause more pain, so a wider shoe may help reduce pain. If this doesn’t help, there are other treatment options. Come into the office to discuss other options with Houston Texas Podiatrist Dr. Andrew Schneider. Call us today at 713-785-7881 for more information or to make an appointment.
