Before you try injections and surgery, this ProKinetics solution could change your life.
I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your product in dealing with my Morton's Neuroma. I went from a "9" level of pain, immediately to a 0 level of pain when I am using the orthotics. In addition, even when I'm barefoot, my feet seem to have been "retrained" by the orthotics to shift to a more balanced stance, so even barefoot I have much reduced pain.
Morton's Neuroma most often strikes between the 3rd & 4th Metatarsals
It often starts with an annoying feeling of intermittent numbness in the toes. As it worsens debilitating pain can radiate deep in the foot and up the leg, so get after the neuroma right away. The good news is that it can usually be cured by changing the mechanics of your feet.
You have nerves between all your toes, so some people can get the neuroma pain between the 2nd and 3rd metatarsals or even between the 1st and second. If your pain is right in the middle of the foot, you might want to check out Metatarsalgia or Ball-of-Foot pain too. Your problem could be too much pressure on the ball of the foot right in the middle.
Are you favoring the outside of your feet?
Over 80% of the population over pronates, and among them, over 60% tries to correct for it by shifting weight to the outside of their feet. This is usually the problem that triggers the neuroma pain between the 3rd and 4th toes. Take a look at the wear pattern of your shoes to see if you by chance are wearing harder from the middle to the lateral side.
If you do, you put excessive pressure on your lesser metatarsals and toes, so the nerve between the 3rd and 4th toes is pushed up between the metatarsal heads (toe joints). In the beginning it is just an annoyance, but as the nerve becomes irritated, scar tissue starts building around the nerve which makes the problem worse. At this point you can even feel a pea size lump between your toe joints.
The traditional solutions to this problem range from orthotics to surgery, but chances are if you've seen a doctor, you have already had your first steroid injection. It may have helped some, but the pain is guaranteed to come back. Ultimately you will be offered surgery to cut and remove the nerve, but unfortunately, for many, this is a temporary solution too.
The ProKinetics solution you can easily try yourself?
ProKinetics insoles and MicroLifts take the pressure off your lateral metatarsals and toes and distribute it across the full width of your feet, making the first metatarsal and big toe picking up a bigger share. Removing the pressure removes the cause of your neuroma pain, but it does always remove the pain instantly. It does for some, but as you remove the pressure, the irritation stops, the scar tissue will start to absorb and the nerve will heal.
If you have an old mouse pad or a 3/16th in thick felt pad, cut out a rectangle for each foot and tape them under and behind the big toes as the picture illustates. Be sure they do not infringe on the area behind the second toes, because that will feel like a wadded up sock in your shoes. Try it, love it and when you have convinced your self that it works, get a pair of ProKinetics® Insoles or MicroLifts™.
