Don’t mix Coronavirus and a common Morton’s neuroma treatment.

Steroid Injections


Steroid injections are a relatively common treatment for Morton’s neuroma. However, in light of the current Covid-19 crisis we would not recommend anyone having a steroid injection for a Morton’s neuroma, or for that matter, any other musculosketal conditions, such as heel pain or tennis elbow etc. This is because steroid injections, as well as being powerful anti-inflammatory agents are also immunosuppressants, i.e. they reduce the body’s ability to fight off infection. 


One of the most commonly used steroid injections in the UK for the treatment of Morton’s neuroma is a steroid called methylprednisolone. Methylprednisolone is used elsewhere in medicine to help treat certain types of autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are conditions where the body attacks it's own cells. Examples of autoimmune disease include systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. Couples undergoing IVF treatment might also be familiar with methylprednisolone too, as it is often used at the time of embryo implantation, because it helps prevent the mother’s body rejecting the implanted embryo. 

From a lung perspective it is used to treat bronchitis because it dampens down acute inflammation. However, French doctors dealing with Covid-19 have raised concerns about the immunosuppressive effects of steroid injections, as they can in some circumstances cause a delayed healing of lung tissue affected by the Covid-19 virus. 


For the time being it might be prudent to give steroid injections for Morton’s neuroma a miss. In any event, there is debate about whether or not steroid injections provide any long-term help for neuromas and when they do help, by what mechanism they are providing the relief. The current research suggests that the diameter of the neuroma is quite important. If the diameter of the neuroma exceeds 5.5 mm then the likelihood of gaining any benefit, or the benefit lasting more than a few months is slim. 


Some experts question the ‘anti-inflammatory effect’ of the steroid injection on the neuroma. Some argue that the benefits of the steroid injection are not directly related to the anti-inflammatory effects but more to the shrinkage of surrounding muscle tissue. Steroid injections are known to cause atrophy or shrinkage of tissue, some think that rather than causing the neuroma to shrink the small lumbrical muscles that surround the neuroma shrink instead, thereby decompressing the neuroma, and giving some relief. However, when the muscles recover to their normal size the neuroma becomes compressed again, generating pain.


The benefits of cryosurgery include:

  • It can be performed without the use of steroid.
  • That the enlarged nerve or neuroma after cryosurgery will return to a normal diameter of 1-2 mm.
  • When the nerve has returned to normal, (typically after 3 months after cryosurgery) there is normally no loss of sensation, and no residual pain.

If you have recently had a steroid injection should you be worried?

Most definitely not, overall the risk is likely to very small and the data on this issue is still very scant and emerging.  It is worth remembering the worst affected people are people whose immune systems go into ‘overdrive’ and generally methylprednisolone is used for dampening down such reactions. Furthermore, the effects of steroid injections are fairly short lived.

So at the moment we are treating steroid injections as an 'unknown' factor and erring on the side of caution.

Intermetatarsal Bursitis, a condition commonly mistaken for Morton’s neuroma

Morton's Neuroma & Bursitis.


If your 2020 new years’ resolution of, ‘taking up running’ has been thwarted by pain, numbness, and tingling under the forefoot during running, you might be forgiven for consulting Dr. Google and concluding that you have a Morton’s neuroma.

However, don’t throw away your running gear quite just yet, because Dr. Google, like many podiatrists, can’t easily distinguish between Morton’s neuroma and a similar condition called intermetatarsal bursitis; one that can be easily treated, and one that can’t be so easily treated with traditional methods. This inability to separate out bursitis from Morton’s neuroma is because both Morton’s neuroma and bursitis generate very similar sensations in the forefoot, and both can generate a positive ‘Mulder’s click’. 


 

Mulder's Click.


A ‘Mulder’s click’, regarded by many for decades, as the definitive test for the presence of Morton’s neuroma, can be felt by the examiner, and sometimes the patient too. The click occurs when the metatarsal bones are squeezed together whilst simultaneously applying an upward force with the thumb to the underside the forefoot, as seen below.  The clicking sensation is generated by the ‘subluxation’ or upward displacement of the enlarged nerve against surrounding structures.

For many years Morton’s neuroma were, and still are by many, diagnosed purely on the basis of a positive squeeze test. The problem with this way of diagnosing Morton’s neuroma is that the Mulder’s squeeze test also detects bursitis. This is because bursa will frequently click if squeezed. This ‘false positive’ has been known about now for a long time, and discussed in the medical literature since at least 1985 (Bosley and others 1985).

So, as you can see, an examiner can’t really tell the patient “you have a Morton’s neuroma because you have a positive Mulder’s click” at best, all they could say is, “your positive Mulder’s click means you may have bursitis, or a Morton’s neuroma, or even a combination of both”.


 

 


 

Running and Bursitis.


Returning now to your new year’s resolution and running. If you have only felt discomfort, numbness and tingling during running and at no other time, especially if you run a lot uphill, the most likely culprit is not Morton’s neuroma, but intermetatarsal bursitis.

Intermetatarsal bursa (singular) or bursae (plural) are sac-like structures that normally contain a small amount of ‘lubricating’ synovial fluid. Sometimes but not always, they are connected to nearby joints. Their function is to reduce friction between structures that might otherwise become inflamed (in this case the interdigital nerve), if you like, they are a kind of internal buffering mechanism. There are 160 bursae found all over the body (Lohr, KM. 2016).

These bursae can become problematic when inflamed, because they fill up dramatically with synovial fluid, the walls of the sac can thicken and harden and sometimes calcify, overall, a process called bursitis. Over time, the bursa press-on, and ultimately compress the nerves in the forefoot, causing pain and sometimes Morton’s neuroma. It is also worth remembering that bursae occur quite normally and harmlessly between 1st - 2nd metatarsals and the 4th - 5th metatarsals. In those locations they are described ‘anatomical’ because they are a normal anatomic feature, a feature that we are all born with. Bursa can also develop over time in places where we weren’t born with them. These are known as ‘adventitious’. Adventitious bursa, develop at mechanical irritation ‘hot spots’ and are particularly prone to inflammation in the 2nd - 3th and 3rd - 4th interspaces, especially if someone is running in shoes too tight in the toe box, that squeeze the contents of the forefoot together, or if the soles of the shoes are too thin, causing irritation from tree roots and stones and pavement potholes from below. 


In runners, as the bursa become inflamed they press on the interdigital nerves causing a sensation of fullness in the forefoot, accompanied by numbness and tingling. Usually these sensations typically wear off shortly after the run stops.

For many runners, myself included, the symptoms from bursitis can often be addressed by changing running shoes. Simply changing from a shoe with a tapered toe box (seen below on the left, with my foot resting on a traditional Ascis shoe with a tapered toe box) to a shoe with a more ‘squared off’ toe box, will resolve the bursitis (seen on the right, with my own Altra paradigm 4.5s).

Tapered Toe Box


Tapered shoe boxes can constrict the foot and lead to the development of bursa and Morton's neuroma.

 

Squared-Off Toe Box


Choosing a shoe with a 'squared-off' toe box offers runners less side-ways compression on the forefoot.

 


The diagram above shows the side-ways constriction of the toes and forefoot in shoes with a narrow toe box. 


 

My recommendation to patients with wider feet and bursitis, is to try Altra shoes. Not only are they wider in the toe box, they also don’t load up the forefoot in the same way as other running shoes, due to the heel and toes sitting at the same level; which is unlike most running shoes, that place the heel higher than the forefoot. Failing Altra, Brooks are often a good bet, with a broader last, but for those with a slightly narrower forefoot, should look at the Hoka range. You can read at little more about Altra Zero Drop Shoes in one of our previous blog posts here.

If you find that the numbness, pain, and tingling continue well into your non-running day-to-day life, it generally means you have either developed a very inflamed nasty bursa, that will require rest and expert management or worse still, your bursa may be evolving into a Morton’s neuroma.


 

How are Bursa best diagnosed?


With high-quality ultrasound imaging equipment. With such equipment, an expert in forefoot problems can easily distinguish between a bursa and a neuroma within a matter of minutes. Why is it important to distinguish between bursa and Morton’s Neuroma? Because, otherwise without imaging there is no way of knowing if the pain is coming from a neuroma or a bursa. From a surgical perspective, bursae when ‘excised’ or cut out are removed with the nerve as one combined unit, this is because the nerve and bursa are closely entwined. So, to answer the last question in other way, why would you have a healthy nerve removed if the issue is a bursa?

For at least half of those with bursa pain, the pain can generally be addressed with simple changes, with running for instance, simply avoiding running up hill will often calm them down. Failing that, injections of steroid or newer non-steroid treatments can encourage the bursa to calm down and empty, and ultimately become pain free.


 

What happens if conservative treatments for bursitis fail?


Cryosurgery has long represented an effective and superior treatment for bursitis over conservative treatments. This is illustrated by a study involving 170 patients, dating back to 1988 study entitled “…treatment of chronic bursitis by a local cryogenic procedure.” It showed at followed-up, (between 12 and 24 months) that just under half of those treated with usual conservative measures were free of bursitis, compared to 100% of patients who remained bursitis-free following cryosurgery (Goriachev An, and others.1988). 

At ‘The Barn Clinic’ treatment centres in London and Sheffield, we routinely perform cryosurgery for forefoot pain that stems from bursitis or Morton’s neuroma or even for those with a combination of both Morton’s neuroma and bursitis.

Similar to cryosurgery for Morton’s neuroma, Cryosurgery treatment of bursae, usually results in a small patch of numbness at the base of the toes and of the two toes of the affected metatarsal interspace. The numbness typically wears off after 3-4 months. We usually recommend waiting until total pain relief has been achieved before returning to running. Even when total pain relief is obtained within the first couple of weeks post cryosurgery, we still recommend not running for 6 weeks to allow the tissues time to recover. The minimum rest time after cryosurgery before returning to running is 6 weeks, however cycling and cross training can be undertaken with guidance after 2 weeks.

For more information about cryosurgery for bursitis or Morton’s neuroma, diagnostic ultrasound scans, injection therapy and other conservative treatment options please contact the clinic for more information.

Get on your dancing shoes.

Get on your dancing shoes.


One of my favourite expressions is ‘Happy wife, happy life’. With that in said, and with my wife being a professional dancer teacher and dance costume designer, it will come of little surprise that the Autumnal TV viewing in the Weaver household is dominated by one TV program, and one alone, woe betide anyone (me) with alternative viewing ideas!

Over the years in pursuit of a happy life, I have endured or should I say enjoyed more than my fair share of ‘Strictly’. 


So, I can genuinely say I have watched every moment of this season’s show and have been extremely impressed by the progress of Kelvin. Kelvin’s victory is even more impressive as he was drafted in at the last minute to replace Jamie Laing, who sadly suffered a foot injury in training. 

Jamie’s very public dance related foot injury served to highlight the struggles and ‘foot sacrifice’ that dancers have to suffer for their art. 

During my career as a Podiatrist I have been very privileged to have worked with many elite athletes and dancers. I have seen first-hand the toll that sport and dance can take on the feet of such athletes and dancers. Broken metatarsal bones, arthritic big toe joints, sprained and torn ankle ligaments, Morton’s neuroma. The list goes on and on.

The very pinnacle of such ‘foot sacrifice’ is that that made by ballet dancers. This is because the ballet dancer has to be able to completely extend the feet and support all of their body weight as they move over the extended feet, a process known as going ‘on pointe’. To be able to go ‘on pointe’ requires years of training.

For most girls in the UK the transition from this training and actually going onto ‘pointe’ takes place between the ages of 11-13, and yet the bones in female developing feet don’t properly harden until somewhere between the ages of 8 and 14. 

All of the above take a toll on the dancer’s feet long after they have hung up their ballet shoes, one common condition being Morton’s neuroma. The treatment choice of Morton’s neuroma is especially important for dancers. This is illustrated by the following extract 


 

‘Struck numb’ published online via The Independent. 

The operation was apparently a common one, and was a success, but the after-effects are a total disaster. I am a trained dancer and, before the operation, still did class every day with great pleasure, as I was generally fit and supple. Since the operation, I cannot feel anything in my feet. I have lost my balance, and my ability to jump, move quickly across the floor, or do anything gracefully or easily. The numbness was supposed to go away but it has not. This has robbed me not only of one of the great pleasures of my life, but also of a professional skill (I am an actress). What can I do about this? Is it a hopeless situation? Is there a remedy or an alternative treatment? Why was I not informed of the possible after-effects and given some kind of choice? It has all been a great shock and has seriously diminished my quality of life. I have a high pain threshold and it is possible that if I had known what I now know, I might have preferred the pain.” 

Ref: https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/a-question-of-health-will-i-ever-be-able-to-dance-again-and-how-many-calories-are-there-in-a-bottle-5353539.html


Cryosurgery is now the choice of dancers due to the fact that Cryosurgery does not result in permanent numbness. Quite the opposite, after cryosurgery normal sensation is typically restored by 3-4 months. Dancers are also able to resume training as quickly as 6 weeks post treatment.”

If you are lucky enough to dance like Oti and Kelvin, or you just enjoy dancing round your handbag at the Christmas office party, keep on dancing and choose cryosurgery.

November is CRPS Awareness month

Morton’s Neuroma, CRPS, and the role of Vitamin C and Mirror Therapy.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS, also known as RSD) is a rare, but not uncommon condition that can cause significant, sometimes life changing pain and loss of function in either, the lower leg and foot, or the lower arm and hand. It can also affect those that have had excision surgery for Moron’s neuroma.

CRPS is generally caused by trauma such as ankle or wrist fracture, or by a period of immobilisation such as having the foot or arm in a plaster cast or brace. Sometimes, even a seemingly very minor injury such as a sprained ankle can trigger CRPS.


CRPS

Approximately 80% of people affected by CRPS are European, or have European ancestry. CRPS associated with trauma affects approximately 26 people per 100,000 every year (1). Much like Morton’s neuroma it affects 4 times more women than men, and like Morton’s neuroma the typical age of onset is mid-forties. The female bias however, could simply be explained by the fact that women suffer more fractures especially of the wrist than men, making them more likely to develop CRPS.

Most cases of CRPS are associated with fracture and the upper limb seems to be more commonly affected than the lower limb.

CRPS also occurs at a surprisingly high rate of just under 4.5% for those having elective or planned foot and ankle surgery (1), though some UK podiatric surgeons suggest that the risks of CRPS from Morton’s neuroma excision surgery alone is as low as 0.46% (2).

Excision of Morton’s neuroma is the biggest cause of surgically induced CRPS in the foot (3,4). The exact rate of CRPS is hard to know for sure, because estimates are based on retrospective studies that look back on patient’s treatment records, meaning they rely on clinicians being able to recognise and document or report a complex condition that can easily be mistaken for other conditions. The true rate of CRPS could be either higher or lower that the figures quoted (3).


What are the features of CRPS?

Constant or fluctuating pain is the most prominent feature of CRPS. The pain is often out of proportion to the injury or stimuli. CRPS can cause a variety of symptoms including, swelling, movement disorders such as tremor or involuntary muscle contraction, and pain is often felt from even the lightest touch or pressure.

Other features include altered skin temperature and altered nail and hair growth, and overall increased sensitivity to pain. Body perception disturbances are not uncommon, such as the hand or foot feeling like it doesn’t belong to the owner.

CRPS is hard to diagnose, for patients developing CRPS following Morton’s neuroma excision surgery, the average length of time from onset to diagnosis is just over 9 and a half months (3). In extreme cases the effects can drive sufferers to seek amputation of the affected limb, however around 16 % of those who proceed with amputation continue to experience the same level of pain.

The outlook for most is good, with many experiencing substantial improvement or remission of symptoms within 12 months, though for some, full recovery may never be attained or can take some years.

Studies have helped develop a profile of those most susceptible to developing CRPS. Just about 50% of CRPS sufferers have a previous history of anxiety and depression. CRPS sufferers are 3.5 times more likely to experience migraine especially migraine with aura than the general population. Smokers and those having repeat forefoot surgery also have increased risk.

The image below illustrates how the foot can look in the early stages of CRPS. The foot is often moderately swollen and slightly discoloured and warmer due to increased blood. In later stages the appearance can reverse, with the foot becoming cooler and darker and slightly bluish-purple discolouration.

 


What can be done to reduce the risk of developing CRPS in the first place?

Avoidance of trauma and surgery are the two obvious things that spring to mind. However, as we all know, avoidance of such things, especially slips and trips is easier said than done.

If you are unlucky enough to suffer a fracture or if you are waiting for elective foot and ankle surgery you should give serious consideration to taking Vitamin C.

The reason why is clearly illustrated by a 2007 study of men and women who had fractured their wrists. Following their fractures, 317 patients were given Vitamin C daily for 50 days, and 99 were given a placebo tablet.

Only 2.4% of the Vitamin C group went on to develop CRPS, compared with 10.1% of the control placebo group. This research has since been repeated many times nearly all studies showing Vitamin C can reduce (but not entirely prevent) rates of CRPS in those suffering fracture or undergoing elective surgery (5).

 

 


Treatment of CRPS

Like most things in medicine, better outcomes are achieved with early diagnosis and treatment. Treatment typically involves the use of differing drugs that include antidepressants, anticonvulsants and anti-bone loss drugs.

Other treatments includes repeat local anaesthetic injections, epidurals similar to those given during childbirth and spinal cord stimulators.

An emerging treatment that shows some promise that does not involve drugs involves the use of mirrors. The affected side is hidden and the other foot is then observed by the patient performing movement or activities that would normally be painful. Tricking the brain to process information differently does seem to significantly help reduce pain both during and after mirror therapy especially if performed regularly over a 3 month period (6).

 


Cryosurgery and CRPS.

Cryosurgery to sensory nerves (the nerves that contain Morton’s neuroma) triggers a localised breakdown of the nerve however the nerve is able to regenerate and return to normal function. Critically, Cryosurgery avoids cutting the nerve. Cryosurgery has been applied to nerves for pain relief since 1961 to approximately 30 nerves throughout the body (7). Thankfully, while CRPS does not seem to be a prominent risk for those having cryosurgery to a nerve or a neuroma, we would still advise anyone having any treatment for a neuroma, be it an injection of steroid, Cryosurgery or excision surgery to consider Vitamin C.

Most studies dealing with Vitamin C and CRPS suggest either taking either a full, or half a gram (1000mg / 500mg) of Vitamin C approximately 1 week before and up to 30-40 days post treatment. Always discuss with your doctor or clinician first.

Autumn’s here, so what does that mean for your Morton’s Neuroma?


Well, the summer seems to be well and truly over, so what does that mean for your Morton's Neuroma?


In a nutshell, it is probably be going to become more noticeable, simply due to the fact winter shoes are more compressive and often have more of a heel which throws weight forward onto the forefoot.

By and large, we often advise our patients to try and adopt flatter ‘zero degree’ heel shoes. Zero-degree, as the name implies, are shoes where the heel doesn’t sit higher than the forefoot, this in turn reduces pressure in the region of the foot where Morton's Neuroma form, which for many will give some degree of symptomatic relief.

 

However, there is a big exception to this footwear rule that every Morton’s Neuroma sufferer should be aware of. A pair of zero-degree heel shoes that will help you for walking, will also make your neuroma worse if you run with them. This is because zero-degree heel running shoes offer little to no cushioning under the heel during running. This lack of cushioning forces the user to land more on the forefoot rather than the heel.

Add to this, the fact that during running, when the foot lands and comes into contact with the ground all of the body’s weight is going through one leg.  A 2014 study of female runners using shoes with minimal heel cushioning found peak forefoot pressures increased by almost 40% when compared to female runners who used shoes with heel cushioning.

So, the take home message is flat zero-degree shoes are good for day-to-day leisure wear, but for running, a positive-degree heel shoe with heel cushioning should be used to allow the heel region to take pressure.


If you don’t want to be ruled by your shoes for the rest of your life there is no better time to book your cryosurgery treatment.
Patients treated at this time of year are often totally recovered in time for the new year and the winter ski season.

Why does Morton’s Neuroma seem better during the Summer?

Why do so many people report that their neuroma feels so much better in the summer?


Could it be the sunshine and sangria effect? Where we are either, on holiday or have a holiday to look forward to, or we are super relaxed after a holiday. The sun is shining and psychologically we all feel so much better and our day-to-day problems seem just that little bit less bothersome, including our neuroma. Why should this be, is it all down to the sunshine? Well the sunshine could definitely help.

There is a lot of evidence now, that the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D has an important role to play in the body’s tissue repair and anti-inflammatory mechanisms and we know neuromas do have an inflammatory component to them. Maybe a boost of vitamin D levels, combined with a week or two of the famous Mediterranean diet, high in anti-inflammatory omega 3s, and low in inflammatory omega 6s could be just what the food doctor ordered, however, there is probably something much more simple and down to earth at play.  

For most, once a Morton’s neuroma has reared its ugly head there is a period of time where the symptoms can be managed with lifestyle changes, especially choice of footwear. For most, year by year the symptoms ebb and flow, they feel better in the summer and worse in the winter. This seasonal change is really down to the fact that summer footwear is so much flatter and wider and forgiving.  In a flat shoe, the forefoot region where neuromas form, takes approximately 30% of body weight, this is far more manageable than the 66% of body weight going through the forefoot in a shoe with a higher heel. Secondly sandals benefit from being wider in the toe-box making more room for you and your little foot fiend to get along with each other. 

For the record we don’t sell footwear or have shares in Birkenstocks, and with that said, this year the Birkenstocks Arizona 2019 is a really good choice if you suffer from neuroma, it ticks all the neuroma friendly boxes. It has an adjustable forefoot strap, a supportive cork foot-bed that will support your feet In all the right places. The cork foot-beds also mould around any lumps and bumps your feet might have, meaning the shoe adapts around you and not the other way around (for the friendly people at Birkenstocks reading this I take a size UK 10.5).

October and November are our busiest months, with a large influx of new patients. This is simply because a lot of people can no longer put up with the pain once the neuroma has been compressed again by their winter shoes. Our advice would be, choose your winter footwear very carefully and try and transition into a shoe that is as wide and as flat as possible.

Be kind to your neuroma, don’t go from one footwear extreme to another.


 

8 Reasons to Choose Cryosurgery to Cure your Morton’s Neuroma

 


 

1. It Works.

Cryosurgery for Morton's Neuroma has an excellent success rate from just one treatment. 

 


 

2. It’s very safe.

Cryosurgery has better success rates and outcomes than neurectomy surgery.  Unlike neurectomy surgery, cryosurgery poses no risk of stump neuroma because there is no cutting of the nerves in the foot.

 


 

3. Minimal Downtime

You can be back to work and driving after a long weekend.

 


 

4. Cost effective.

Most patients spend thousands on shoes and other less effective treatments. Cryosurgery is also the cheaper option in comparison to private neuroma excision surgery.

 


 

5. Time effective.

Many suffers can spend years suffering with Morton's Neuroma. With Cryosurgery, will see their full results in as little as 12 weeks.

 


 

6. Long Term Results.

For most patients, the results are permanent. Our thorough consultation process is also designed to highlight any common risk factors the patient may be exposed to (such as foot-type, hyper mobility etc), and we work with you to put future preventative measures in place.

 


 

7. Single Treatment.

Cryosurgery is carried out in just 1 short treatment. So you don't have to commit to a course of treatments and multiple trips to the clinic.

 


 

8. Affordable for every budget.

We offer 0% Interest free credit, and a variety of finance options to suit your circumstances and your budget.
