Mortons neuroma/bursal complex 


True neuroma is not as common as people think. 

At FASA we often have patients that have been misdiagnosed with this condition or have undergone quite an extensive range of treatment with little to no benefit. 

Neuromas occur when normal nerves are pinch, damaged or irritated. This can occur for a variety of reasons. It is important to understand that often the nerve is ok, and it is just being compressed by a bursa, bony prominence or other injury. 


  • Painful swelling between your toes, commonly between your 2nd and 3rd toes or the 3rd and 4th toes. 
  • Radiating nerve pain.
  • Burning and hypersensitivity.
  • Aggravated by certain shoes and activities.  


  • Treatment can range from very simplistic home treatments all the way to surgical procedures.
  • At FASA we also use injection techniques including cortisone where indicated.  
  • At FASA we can offer surgical procedures to remove the neuroma and/or address any surrounding or associated pathology.  


The most important element to successful treatment of neuroma/ bursal complex is accurate diagnosis.
