Hello. I have Morton's neuroma in my right foot. I'm applying Ice hot with lidocaína and according to my doctor I have to wait for the next month to see any improvements or he has to do an injection.

So does any one have experienced this ?

Any advice for treatment or how to avoid this and other injuries?

Thanks

I used to have problems with it, but no longer. I remember I had a cortisone shot at one point, but the real key is your shoes. Make sure you aren't wearing shoes that are too tight or short in the toe box area. Any of your shoes, not just golf shoes.

Warning: I am not a medical professional. The above is my opinion based on personal experience.

Apply ice(top and bottom of forefoot like sandwich) for 30 minutes several times a day, 2-3x at the end of the day. Take 2 OTC Alleve tablets twice a day, 2 with breakfast and 2 with dinner, every day(**Assuming you don't have any medical contraindications to it). Get gel insoles focusing on a thick ball of foot area. They also make gel pads for just the balls of the feet. Wear them in all of your shoes. ALWAYS wear something on your feet. Running sneakers when outside and inside if possible. Crocs are great to wear in the house. No barefoot, socks only, slippers, sandals, flip flops. Make sure your shoes fit properly, especially not too narrow. Limit your non-essential activities. You can also massage the ball of the foot and do some stretching exercises. You really have to do ALL of the above things consistently. A little bit here and there is not as effective. They are additive. A month is reasonable before the next step which is a cortisone injection.

Thanks a lot for your advices, the pain was so hard that I had surgery already, it's been 4 months today, still swelling but improving very slow, part of the process according to the surgeon. And hungry to play  golf again ASAP. that may be in another 1 or 2 months. Cheers

You can continue to do all of the above even after having surgery. Maybe limit the Naprosyn to 1-2 week blasts. Have you tried orthotics? Or you can try something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0716J6G8X/ref=sm_n_au_dka_US_pr_con_0_0?adId=B0716J6G8X&creativeASIN=B0716J6G8X&linkId=67fadf82b2c646210e689d5da3b21050&tag=erikjb-20&linkCode=w41&ref-refURL=https%3A%2F%2Fthesandtrap.com%2Fforums%2Ftopic%2F105721-mortons-neuroma%2F&slotNum=0&imprToken=7f9a46cc737137470ab50670a58a25b5&adType=smart&adMode=auto&adFormat=grid&impressionTimestamp=1625840357496

    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.
