Can Cycling Cause a Morton’s Neuroma? Cyclists have very unique foot problems.  They are able to get exercise without the pounding associated with running but that does not mean they are always injury-free.  Because cyclists wear stiff shoes, they subject themselves to different foot ailments, including Morton’s Neuromas.  Stiff and narrow shoes can aggravate nerves, causing extreme pain in the middle of the foot or numbness of the middle toes.  Luckily, this injury is easily treatable by a podiatrist.  If you think you may have Morton’s Neuroma, we encourage you to browse the free resources on our website and don’t hesitate to call the Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists at 512-328-8900.
