2. Morton’s Neuroma
Even socialites that like to attend prestigious functions can develop heel pain. Ladies that enjoy wearing high-heels with pointed toes are not doing their feet any favors. Morton’s neuroma describes a condition where the tissue surrounding the nerves between the toes begins to grow, resulting in feelings of numbness or tingling in the toes – as well as heel pain.
The pain from Morton’s neuroma is dull and aches. If left unmanaged and untreated, the numbness will continue to spread throughout the font of the foot. Most women realize they have something wrong before this stage and make an appointment with their podiatrist to solve their problem.
If you enjoy wearing high-heels, it’s best to save them for special occasions and opt for more comfortable roomier shoes around the house, at work and while running errands. If you do have to wear high-heels for work purposes, then make sure you treat yourself to a foot massage a few times a week to prevent the development of Morton’s neuroma, and other triggers that cause heel pain.
