To report on a female patient who presented for chiropractic care with Morton’s neuroma.


A 63-year old female who presented with a 10 year history of Morton’s neuroma in her right foot.


Over a one month period, specific chiropractic care using the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique was provided to the patient for the correction of vertebral subluxation. Over this period, the patient experienced a resolution in presenting symptomatology as well as improvements with digestion, sleep and mobility. Patient subjective change was measured using a subjective outcomes survey. Improvements were noted in the subjective and objective outcome measures over the one month period.


Subjective and objective improvements in physical wellbeing were documented in a patient with resolution of Morton’s neuroma following chiropractic care for vertebral subluxation.
