Abstract: 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).
