When the cause of Morton’s Neuroma is understood, and reduced significantly during all weight bearing activities, patients can resume walking, running and standing without pain. The wrong way of walking (poor gait) is at the root of many chronic pain conditions in our lower extremities, including several nerve conditions in the foot and leg. Morton’s neuroma, Joplins Neuroma, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, and even Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) are all caused by the way we walk, and will respond to an aggressive change in foot function.
I was experiencing terrible pain off and on for five years due to Morton’s neuroma. I saw two podiatrists. One gave me a shot. The other one fitted me for expensive custom orthotics. I still felt like my feet were walking on hot coals. I considered surgery, but was informed that sometimes this only results in a different nerve becoming inflamed. I came upon Theta-Orthotics via an Internet search and figured, “what do I have to lose.”
Because the Theta Orthotics provide a great deal of arch uplift, you need to gradually work up to your ideal strength. This took me about 3-4 months. But I began to notice substantial improvement even with my “break-in” prescription.
After about six months, all of my neuroma pain went away, and I have been using my Theta Orthotics ever since – in my street shoes, my golf shoes, my tennis shoes, you name it. By restoring my arch to its original configuration, I went from wearing 12 EEEE shoes back to my original size of 10 ½ EE.
You’d think other companies or podiatrists would be copying Dr. Jarrett’s approach, but I haven’t seen any orthotics like his. If you are experiencing Morton’s neuroma his orthotics are a godsend.
