Putting the Squeeze on Morton’s Neuroma

Whitney Lowe’s article in latest edition of ABMP’s Massage and Bodywork was, as usual, very informative. First, he differentiated between Morton’s Foot and Morton’s Neuroma. Then, he stressed that Neuroma is, in this case, a misnomer; it is, in fact, a compression of branches (the plantar digital nerves) of the sciatic nerve. He then stressed that, like plenty of conditions, it can be helped by eliminating some everyday habits. Lastly, he stressed that nerves do NOT like to be stretched, so a therapist should stretch the soft tissue around the compression site!
