I need help in finding research papers on Morton's Neuroma

    Hi All,
    My apologies if this has been posted previously.

    I am doing a Master's degree in theory of podiatric surgery and I am doing an assignment on the use of orthotics with Morton's Neuroma. I cannot find any decent studies on this topic, does anyone have any papers or know where I could find these. I have tried all the usual databases and even Google Scholar but find very little on these. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Kayron Pozo

    I don't recall any research on that.
     
  3. I don't know of any papers either. It's about time that some research is done on this subject!

    Hi Kayron,

    I just searched 'foot orthoses in Morton's neuroma' on Google scholar and found the following study:

    Effect of Pronation and Supination Orthosis on Morton's Neuroma and Lower Extremity Function

    Twenty-three adult patients with Morton's neuroma of one foot were randomized to receive in-shoe orthoses made from a hard, compressed, felt material that would either pronate or supinate both feet. The response of the neuroma pain was measured using subjective visual analogue scales, an objective examination, and the MACTAR patient-specific measure of maximal function. The development of any other lower limb symptoms was also recorded. The pain associated with Morton's neuroma was not significantly altered by changing the position of the foot with the compressed felt orthosis. Forcibly pronating the foot did not produce a significant incidence of lower limb symptoms in the short term.

    I also found a cochrane review which discussed the same study:

    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD003118.pub2/full

    Please let me know if you find anything else.

    Thanks

    Josh
