Morton's Neuroma Insoles
Morton's neuroma is a painful condition that can be difficult to deal with but shoe inserts for Morton's neuroma can help ease the symptoms. While it may feel overwhelming to experience pain while walking, there is hope for recovery.
What is Morton's neuroma?
Morton's neuroma is a "thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes" 1. This can result in pain, typically between the third and fourth toes. This is different from neuropathy, and is not the same as the foot pain associated with diabetes. It can sometimes be caused by certain behaviors and can often be successfully treated.
What are symptoms of Morton's neuroma?
Morton's neuroma is characterized by sharp, shooting pain in the ball of the foot, pain between the toes, numbness, stinging, burning, or feeling as if you are standing on a pebble. It is not associated with pain in the heel, which may be more related to the plantar fascia.

Designed for casual or slip-on shoes with a non-removable insole.
What causes Morton's neuroma?
The condition is caused by irritation to the nerves in the foot so there are many behaviors that can contribute to this such as wearing high heels, ill-fitting shoes, or shoes with a narrow toe-box. Participating in high-impact sports with a lot of running or jumping can also be a factor along with natural foot abnormalities.
How can you treat Morton's neuroma?
There are some measures you can take at home such as applying ice, letting your feet rest, wearing lower heels or better fitting shoes, and purchasing Morton's neuroma insoles. If these steps still don't bring relief, a doctor may be able to intervene with a steroid injection before resorting to nerve removal surgery.
Can insoles relieve Morton's neuroma foot pain?
In a recent study 2, it was demonstrated that participants found significant pain relief when using insoles to treat Morton's neuroma. Insoles can provide shock absorption, arch support, cushioning, and correct anatomical alignment issues to help relieve the stress on the nerves.
What mistakes prevent Morton's neuroma pain relief?
Unfortunatly it is common for people to suffer needlessly with Morton's neuroma pain if they are unwilling to see a doctor for treatment, decide to continue wearing high heels or uncomfortable shoes, or decide to play through the pain for their exercise routines. Forcing activity or wearing the wrong shoes despite your pain will likely worsen the condition and could increase your likelihood for surgery.

Patented Technology Makes It Possible
The difference lies in our patented TRI-Planar technology. Other insole companies place a stump under the arch and call it support. Our insoles focus on the cause of the problem rather than the symptoms, designed to help your body maintain a neutral ankle joint position, while still allowing full ranges of healthy movement. Proper joint alignment improves movement efficiency, reduces fatigue, and prevents injury to help you do what you love.
Reduced Risk of Injury
The bones of the ankle and heel are most stable when they are positioned in alignment. If they shift away from a center alignment, they become less stable.
Imagine pressure being placed on those unstable structures over and over again while you walk, run, or work. That is where the injuries can take place.
Injuries can present as chronic pain in the foot, knees, hips, and back. They may also include acute injuries such as an ankle sprain.
Keeping your hindfoot in alignment allows not only your bones but also the surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments to properly handle the pressure placed on them from your feet through your back.
Your ankles and feet work together to manage how weight is distributed as you move
If your heels and ankles are not in their proper positions, they cannot properly distribute weight and this may lead to a less stable walking motion.
When your ankles and heels are out of alignment, your muscles, ligaments, and tendons often have to step in to ensure proper alignment and balance.
When these muscles become fatigued, they may not be able to handle the task properly and you become more likely to fall or become injured.
Increased Energy Efficiency
As you walk and move, your kinetic energy moves from your feet up through your body.
This energy can be seen when walking in sand. Sand kicks up behind you with each step. It is moved by the energy created when you move your foot.
Fatigued muscles don't pass as much of that energy onto the next structure. That is why walking in sand is tiring; energy is being lost and your muscles become fatigued.
An aligned kinetic chain allows the highest quantity of energy to be transferred up through your body, giving you more power and helping you feel less tired.
Better Pressure Distribution
The body is designed to distribute pressure so that your muscles can primarily be concerned with movement.
When the skeletal system becomes misaligned, especially at the joint between the heel and ankle, pressure is no longer distributed across the structures that are most able to deal with it.
Instead, other structures, such as the ligaments in the knees, hips, and ankles, must take on the job and that can lead them to become fatigued, sore, or injured.
Protalus insoles correct the misalignment so you can avoid fatique and injury.
