Morton's neuroma

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

If you are a runner you are probably used to every day aches and pains, but there can be a difference between something that is annoying and something that is an actual problem.

Dr. Larry Benson is treating "morton's neuroma".

Morton's neuroma is a fibrosis of the common digital nerve in the foot. It usually occurs between the second and third toe.

It could mean you need to take a break from running. Inserts to the shoes can help or steroid injections can decrease inflammation.

Chronic and severe neuromas could require surgery.
