I had not heard of this condition until recently when a client visited me with this. According to the website NHS Choices, Morton’s Neuroma “a painful foot condition that affects one of the nerves between the toes.” (NHS choices)
So it was time to do some research between sessions to learn about this condition from the web, and then to dust down greys anatomy for a little light reading. Yes we do not know everything about every condition, but we make the effort to find out about what the condition is, how it works, and then how to best apply the treatment. As you may already know, the likelihood of Bowen Fascial Release Technique moves being in the exact location of the pain is minimal, as he technique looks to allow the body to heal the source of the problem, not the representation of the problem. So although the condition is caused by a thickening of the nerve, the movement of the fascia further up the foot across the retinaculums may help in reducing the tension in the affected area.
I am delighted and so is the client, that the foot responded almost immediately, and the pain reduced instantly. Yet again this amazing therapy has helped someone who was in pain and thought that would be their future, constant pain, but now they are feeling more positive.
