What is the best way to treat Morton's neuroma?
Tweed, Elizabeth M.
No single treatment for Morton's neuroma has been identified in the literature.A protocol of stepped care that showed good results in an uncontrolled trial seems reasonable: patient education and footwear or insole changes, followed by corticosteroid injections and, finally, surgery (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, case series). Injecting sclerosing alcohol depends on the provider's access to and comfort with ultrasound, but the evidence is insufficient to recommend it routinely (SOR: C, case series).
