What is it?



A common forefoot condition is related to irritation or impingement of several small forefoot nerves as they pass between the toe joints. Symptoms include pain, numbness, tingling, burning or sharp shooting sensations that are intermittent and made worse by tight fitting footwear.

Hereditary factors, improper fitting footwear, aging, trauma and several foot conditions often exacerbate this condition.

Stretches, footwear recommendations, functional silicone toe corrective paddings and prescription orthotic devices are required to de-compress and normalize the nerve.
