Relief from Neuromas: Specialized Care at Our Clinic

Neuromas, also known as Morton’s neuroma, are painful conditions caused by a thickening of the tissue around a nerve in the ball of the foot. This can lead to symptoms such as sharp, burning pain, tingling, or numbness in the toes. At Our Clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating neuromas, offering comprehensive care to help our patients find relief and improve their foot health.

Understanding Neuromas

Neuromas typically develop between the third and fourth toes or the second and third toes, where the nerves are most susceptible to compression and irritation. Common causes of neuromas include:

Footwear: Wearing shoes with narrow toe boxes or high heels can compress the toes and put pressure on the nerves, leading to the development of neuromas.

Foot Structure: Certain foot shapes or structural abnormalities, such as high arches or flat feet, can increase the risk of developing neuromas.

Trauma: Injury or repetitive stress to the foot can damage the nerves and contribute to the formation of neuromas.

Biomechanical Factors: Abnormal foot mechanics, such as overpronation or excessive foot pronation, can put strain on the nerves and lead to neuromas.

Symptoms of Neuromas

The symptoms of neuromas may include:

Sharp, shooting pain or burning sensation in the ball of the foot or between the toes

Numbness or tingling in the toes

Pain that radiates into the toes or up the foot

Feeling like there is a pebble or lump under the ball of the foot

Pain that worsens with activity or wearing tight shoes

Comprehensive Treatment Options

At Our Clinic, we offer a variety of treatment options for neuromas, tailored to each patient’s specific needs and the severity of their condition. Treatment may include:

Footwear Modifications: Wearing shoes with a wide toe box and low heels can help alleviate pressure on the toes and reduce irritation of the nerves.

Orthotic Devices: Custom orthotic inserts or pads may be prescribed to provide support and cushioning for the foot, relieving pressure on the neuroma.

Injection Therapy: Corticosteroid injections or alcohol sclerosing injections may be used to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain associated with neuromas.

Physical Therapy: Stretching and strengthening exercises for the foot and ankle can help improve flexibility, reduce pain, and prevent recurrence of neuromas.

Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or neuropathic pain medications may be prescribed to manage pain and discomfort associated with neuromas.

Surgical Intervention: In severe cases of neuromas that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical removal of the neuroma may be necessary to relieve pain and restore foot function.
