mortons neuroma
hi

i have alot of pain and burning at the front underside of my foot where my lesser toes are. during the past 5 yrs, I have fractured and sprained the ankle in this foot .
pain worsens if i stand on foot or walk.
could i have mortons neuroma or tts? would an mri confirm this?if yes, could you recommend a good 'foot' ortho/podiatrist in joburg north area (rosebank, sandton side).
i have heard of dr pierre rosseau at Wilgeheuwel hospital.

Unfortunately being based in CT I cannot recommend anyone in Jhb.
Often a foot injury recurs because of your overall biomechanics - so I would suggest getting to a biokinetisists who specialises in biomechanics
