Neuromas are more common in certain foot types such as flatfeet or high-arched feet and in feet that have deformities such as bunions or hammertoes.
However, they can occur in any type of foot. The general theme in the development of a neuroma includes anything that irritates or injures the nerve and can include:
- Tight fitting shoes
- Repetitive minor injuries from impact sports such as running
- Direct trauma to the nerve from stepping on something
