Morton's neuroma, also known as Civinini Morton's Syndrome (CMS) and interdigital neuritis, is a painful foot condition associated with neural degeneration and perineural fibrosis. Key clinical symptoms are pain and altered forefoot sensation. Among the conservative treatment options are footwear modification, orthotics, modalities such as extracorporeal shockwave therapy and transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TENS), and lifestyle adjustments. Other treatments include surgery or ultrasound-guided percutaneous injections. In this course, Helene Simpson discusses the most effective physiotherapy interventions for Morton's neuroma.


This course aims to introduce Morton's neuroma and review physiotherapy management options for this condition.

It is a beneficial course in such a dire situation in Afghanistan that there is no place for learning in reality! I am a prosthesis and orthosis technician who wants to enhance my knowledge!

It is a great entry-level course to get you started with the different types of forefoot pain.
