Explore How We Can Assist in Easing Neuroma Discomfort.

Foot pain is a prevalent issue, affecting eight out of 10 Americans, with some experiencing regular and persistent discomfort, often attributed to neuromas.

Understanding Neuromas
Neuromas involve the thickening of nerve tissues, commonly occurring in the feet. Morton’s neuroma, a prevalent type, affects the ball of the foot, causing pain, tingling, or numbness between the third and fourth toes.

Identifying Neuroma Symptoms
Symptoms include pain and swelling between toes, burning or tingling sensations in the ball of the foot, and a feeling of foreign objects inside the foot or shoe. Symptoms typically worsen over time, potentially leading to permanent nerve damage.

Uncovering Neuroma Causes
Contributing factors may include improper footwear, biomechanical deformities like flat feet or high arches, trauma to the forefoot, and repeated stress from activities such as high-impact sports or tight shoe wear.

Diagnosing Neuromas
A thorough examination by a podiatrist, including manual manipulation to reproduce symptoms, is crucial for diagnosis. Imaging tests may be used to rule out other conditions like arthritis or fractures.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options
For mild to moderate cases, non-surgical approaches include metatarsal arch support padding, icing, contrast baths, customized orthotic devices, anti-inflammatory medications, injection therapy, activity modification, and wearing supportive shoes with lower heels and wider toe boxes.

Surgical Solutions
When nonsurgical treatments prove ineffective, surgical options may be considered, especially for moderate to severe cases of Morton’s neuroma. Surgery involves decompression or removal of the swollen nerve, usually through outpatient procedures with minimal recovery time.
