Alcohol Shots for Morton's Neuromas Instead of Surgery

     This article documents the positive results for 20% alcohol injections to help Morton's Neuroma Pain. My present protocol is one series of 5 weekly injections starting at 10% and ending at 18%. I then wait one to two months, and if there has been a positive help, and less then 80% success, I then do a second series at 20% only. If patients have a bad reaction, it is one in five patients on the first shot at 10%. They will have more pain for 4 days to 2 weeks. I do not give them another shot until this has calmed down. They do not experience more pain with any other injection even with the higher doses. Rich
