NEUROMA | MORTON’S NEUROMA

A neuroma is an enlargement of the nerve that provides sensation to the toes. This enlargement can be due to poor foot structure, poorly fitting shoes or trauma to the feet.

Common Symptoms of a neuroma are:

  • Pain between your toes

  • Swelling between your toes

  • Pain in your forefoot

  • Pain when you put weight on the ball of your foot

  • Numbness or Tingling in the ball of your foot

IF SO, YOU MAY HAVE A NEUROMA.

Treatment for neuromas typically includes padding, custom molded orthotics, oral anti-inflammatory medication, cortizone injections or alcohol sclerosing therapy which usually eliminates the need for surgery.

If these conservative treatments do not relieve the symptoms, surgical excision may be performed.

Treatment for peripheral neuropathy includes nutritional supplements, prescription medications, injection therapy and in some cases surgical procedures to release swollen and compressed nerves.

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms or have been diagnosed with diabetes, it is essential that you schedule a complete evaluation to see our Foot Doctors.
