What exercises should I avoid when I have Morton's Neuroma?

Asked a year ago

I have recently been diagnosed with Morton's Neuroma and I am wondering what exercises I should avoid to prevent further damage. I am an active person and enjoy running and other high-impact activities, but I don't want to make my condition worse. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

As a physiotherapist I would recommend these 4 exercises that will help you prevent further damage and quickly heal Morton Neuroma:

1. Plantar Fascia - Towel : Place towel on floor, put your foot on towel and try to scrunch the towel and bring it under the feet. Perform One minute twice per day

2. Plantar Fascia Ball Roll: Put little ball under your foot, try to roll it, inside, outside, between the toes. Perform One minute twice per day.

3. Standing Gastroc Stretch: Place one foot behind the other, keeping the heel of the back foot firmly on the ground. Bend your front knee slightly while keeping the back leg straight. Lean your body forward towards the wall, and you should begin to feel a stretch in your calf. Hold this position for 20-30 seconds and repeat on the other side. Target the front calf and hold for seven seconds and repeat the contract-relax cycle three times twice per day

4. Seated Resisted Big Toe Strengthening: Seated position, leg should be straight, wrap an elastic band around your toe and pull the toe backward and then bring your toe away from your body as much as you can. Perform three sets of ten once per day.
