Non-operative: Nonsurgical treatment is tried first. Your doctor may recommend any of the following: padding and taping the toe area shoe inserts changes to footwear (for example, shoes with wider toe boxes) anti-inflammatory medicines taken by mouth or injected into the toe area nerve blocking medicines injected into the toe area other painkillers physical therapy.

Depends how you: Define naturally. Orthotics may be helpful, plant based injections like zeel or traumeel can be tried.
Dr. David Hettinger

Special Padding: There are pads that can be worn under the foot called 'metatarsal raise pads' or 'neuroma pads.' these help reduce the pressure on the enlarged nerve tissue in the area and hopefully let it shrink back to a more normal size.
Dr. Vadim Glukh
Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Surgery 23 years experience
Wider shoes: Once diagnosed and confirmed, the foot with morton's neuroma should never be in a narrow shoe or stilettos - all to avoid repetitive compression of the diseased nerve - no matter how briefly this could be!

Neuroma: A morton's neuroma is a thickening of the nerve typically between the 3rd and 4th toes or the 2nd and 3rd toes. Often patients will describe walking on a rock, or that their sock is bunched up in their shoes. Burning, numbness to the toes and a feeling of swelling are typical. Tighter fitting shoes or high heels will make the symptoms worse.
