How I Cured My Morton's Neuroma

How I cured my morton's neuroma

The voice of Fulton customer, Emily S.

As someone who has personally suffered from Morton's neuroma, I know firsthand how debilitating it can be. Morton's neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, typically between the third and fourth toes. It occurs when the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes becomes thickened, causing a sharp, burning pain in the affected area. 

For years, I struggled to find a solution to my Morton's neuroma. I tried everything from dozens of new shoes and physical therapy to pain medication - I even considered surgery. Nothing seemed to work, and the pain persisted. After about a year of pain, I decided it was time to take control of my condition and tested out several different lifestyle changes to improve my condition. Finally, I found a winning combination of treatments that finally cured my Morton's neuroma.

Some Steps I Took

  • The first thing I did was invest in a good pair of shoes. I found that shoes with a wide toe box were essential for relieving the pressure on my feet. I also made sure to wear shoes with a low heel, as higher heels can exacerbate the pain associated with Morton's neuroma. Generally the best shoes for morton's neuroma have a wide toe box, cushions sole and a low heel. 

  • Next, I started doing foot exercises to strengthen the muscles in my feet. These exercises included toe curls, arch lifts, and foot rolls. I also made sure to stretch my feet and calves regularly, as tightness in these areas can contribute to the development of Morton's neuroma. I do these stretches every few days, for about ten minutes in total. These were some of the best Morton's Neuroma exercises.

  • I purchased a product called Correct Toes to wear some times - particularly after long days of walking. I wear them at home, when I’m not wearing shoes. After wearing these too long they feel a bit uncomfortable, so I just wear them for short times to try and realign my foot.

The most important treatment

Perhaps the most effective treatment for my Morton's neuroma, however, was the use of Fulton insoles. I had tried several brands of insoles and these were the only ones that actually made a difference - nearly immediately. They work in a few ways:

  • They have a comfortable layer of foam that immediately alleviated my pain
  • They have a good amount of arch support, that helped to take pressure of the ball of my foot and evenly distribute it across the rest of my foot.
  • They are made from cork, so they also mold to your arch to give a customized level of support. It took about ten hours for them to fully mold, but it was completely worth the wait.

I truly cannot overstate the difference they made.

Lifestyle changes

In addition to Fulton insoles, and the other treatments I mentioned, I also made some lifestyle changes that helped to reduce my overall stress levels. Stress can exacerbate the pain associated with Morton's neuroma, so I made sure to prioritize self-care and relaxation. This included things like meditation, yoga, and spending time in nature.

It took some time and effort, but I am happy to say that I have now fully recovered from my Morton's neuroma. I no longer experience any pain or discomfort in my feet, and I am able to enjoy my favorite activities again without any limitations.


If you are struggling with Morton's neuroma, I hope my story of how I cured my Morton's Neuroma was helpful. I encourage you to try some of the treatments I have outlined here - particularly Fulton insoles. Everyone's experience with this condition is different, so it may take some trial and error to find the right combination of treatments for you. But with persistence and patience, I am confident that you can find relief and ultimately cure your Morton's neuroma.
