Morton's Neuroma: Painful swelling of the nerves that run between the
metatarsals. Pain is usually
intense, worse with weight bearing, and focussed in the MT region ( most commonly
between the second and third MTs) . While in the picture above there is obvious swelling of the soft tissues
overlying the MT region, most cases of Morton's Neuroma cause pain without swelling. Additional information
