I've been having thoughts about my use of VFFs in most of my running and all of my races last year. Was that a contributor to the neuroma I have in my foot now?
I've done some basic online research, but haven't found any reports to suggest that VFFs could be the issue. On the contrary, every report I found of people with neuromas using VFFs has said that they helped the rehab by pushing the metatarsals further apart and easing the pressure on the nerve.
Will it help in my case? Well I've started wearing them (my KSOs) around the house. It won't make an immediate difference, but if it helps or doesn't make me worse I'll give it a go!
