The Greek Foot

 

The Greek Foot, also known as Morton’s Foot, is the easiest foot structure to identify, due to the gap between the big toe and the second toe. The second toe is longer than all of the other toes. People with Morton’s Foot will most likely suffer from a wide variety of foot ailments as this foot structure is notoriously unstable. Here is a list of possible afflictions:

• Metatarsalgia (ball-of-foot pain)
• Morton’s Neuroma
• Metatarsal Stress Fractures
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Calluses
• Bunions
• Hammer, Claw and Mallet toes

Morton's neuroma is a painful foot condition that affects one of the nerves between the toes. It's also known as Morton's metatarsalgia or interdigital neuroma. In Morton's neuroma, a nerve in the foot becomes irritated and thickened, which can cause severe pain. The condition can occur in 1 foot or both feet.
