How is Morton and his Neuroma these days?

I am talking about Morton’s Neuroma in the foot.

It is a new learning every week. My foot has been massaged and needles put in it and an upper cervical chiropractor treatment to align my spine, all in the last 2 weeks.

What worked? all of them. A significant change in my foot after my NUCCA adjustment. I mean it was a significant good change.

This is the list of treatments I have had and I know most of you will know what each treatment entails. Except for NUCCA.

  • Acupuncture – TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) alternative treatment using needles following the meridians of Chinese Medicine in the body.
  • Massage Therapy – movement and pressure of hands on muscles
  • Reflexology – acupressure points on foot
  • NUCCA is a Gentle Correction. SPECIFICALLY IT IS a gentle touch and controlled contact on the first vertebrae in the neck and is designed to restore balance to the spine. … This is because the NUCCA procedure influences one of the highest control centres over body balance, the brain stem and central nervous system.

Why is this condition of a pinched nerve on the ball of one’s foot called Morton’s Neuroma?

The condition is named after Thomas George Morton, though it was first correctly described by a chiropodist named Durlacher. … Though the condition is labeled as a neuroma, many sources do not consider it a true tumor, but rather a perineural fibroma (fibrous tissue formation around nerve tissue). I don’t know if these means anything to me.

So even if it is not a true tumor and is actually a fibrous tissue formation around the nerve , it is still something I must continue to reckon with.

No photos on this post. Okay here is a picture of shoes I wore a few years back. I loved them.

Changes in our body are challenging. This neuroma is heading for surgery more likely but I am keeping my foot healthy by stretching and strengthening exercises.

Wish me luck!
