Morton’s Toe | Estero

Pain Solutions

On average, people take 6,000 to 10,000 steps each day. With each step there are normal movement patterns that should be completed. When these patterns deviate from normal, a variety of conditions can often result.

Morton’s toe is a common condition where the second toe extends out farther than the big toe. This results when the long, finger-like bone inside the foot that connects to the big toe is congenitally shorter than the bone connected to the second toe.

Morton’s toe causes excessive pressure behind the second toe at the ball of the foot resulting in pain. The pressure that builds while walking or standing can lead to callus formation. Excessive rolling inward of the foot (over-pronation), bunions and/or hammer toes also can occur as a result of the condition.

  • Excessive pressure behind the second toe at the ball of the foot
  • Pain behind the second toe at ball of the foot

  • This condition is present from birth and is aggravated by wearing improperly fitted shoes

  • Wear shoes that are long enough (i.e. buy footwear a half size to a size larger to accommodate the longer second toe)
  • Accommodate any bunions, hammer toes or overlapping toes with shoes that are wide enough and deep enough in the toe box
  • Add arch supports to address excessive inward rolling of the foot (over-pronation) and to keep the foot aligned
  • Add metatarsal pads to arch supports and/or shoes when necessary to take pressure off of any calluses under the ball of the foot

*Note: If pain persists, consult your physician

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Supportive athletic, casual or dress shoes
  • Custom-fitted, custom-crafted arch supports (orthotics)
  • Over-the-counter arch supports (orthotics)
  • Metatarsal inserts and/or pads
