When You’re in a Pinch

There’s that burning feeling again. Maybe it strikes between your toes or sears around the ball of your foot.

As a neuroma sufferer, you’re all too familiar with this pinching sensation and it’s really getting on your nerves. Symptoms used to just flare up with strenuous activity, but now even walking is a struggle.

If you can’t live your day-to-day life without pain or chronic inflammation, it’s time to seek expert treatment from our licensed foot care doctors.

 

Seeing What You Can’t

Aside from some redness and swelling, your problem throbs under the surface, making it hard to tell where the pain is coming from.

Oftentimes, what appears to be a single pinched nerve could actually be a few. It’s also not uncommon to find more than one area where the nerve tissue is affected, so you need professional care to reveal the true severity and extent of your condition.

Here at Foot & Ankle Group, we utilize cutting-edge MRI technology and knowledge from our specialists to find and relieve the source of your pain.

 

Our Neuroma Treatments

Neuroma is a benign growth of nerve tissue which often feels like a “pinched” nerve. Your irritated nerve may heal on its own with proper care, but oftentimes, needs professional attention to treat.

We’ll address your nerve pain quickly with the best available technology:

    • Come in for an x-ray.
      Our doctors will begin by examining your foot. We’ll look for visual signs of structural changes, such as splayed toes. Because your pain isn’t something we can see with the naked eye, we’ll use our in-house MRI machine to pinpoint the exact nerve reeking havoc on your foot.
    • Customize a comprehensive treatment plan.
      Oftentimes, many neuroma sufferers find relief by taking anti-inflammatory medications, steroids, cortisone or sclerosis injections to help reduce painful inflammation. We’ll counsel you on proper shoe gear and custom padding too, because sometimes, getting you out of heels or fitted into specially designed orthotics can make a world of difference.
    • Get corrective surgery when it’s absolutely necessary.
      For patients still experiencing everyday pain after following our care instructions, we’ll decide if you’re a good surgical candidate. This soft tissue procedure involves removal of the nerve, but you’ll typically be back in shoes within four to six short weeks.
