Expert Neuroma Treatment in Waxahachie, TX
Our Waxahachie Podiatrists Can Help You Walk Pain Free Again
A neuroma (Morton’s neuroma) is a benign condition that most commonly occurs in the small nerve that runs between the metatarsal bones in the ball of the foot and into the third and fourth toes. Narrow shoes, high heels, injuries, or foot abnormalities can all result in nerve irritation. This irritation results in inflammation and scar tissue forms around the nerve, causing pain that can quickly knock you off your feet. When this happens, call Family Foot & Ankle Centers. Our 5-star podiatry team is experienced at treating neuromas in Waxahachie, TX.
Do You Have a Neuroma?
The most common symptom of a Morton’s neuroma is pain in the ball of the foot and between toes. The pain is normally sharp and most noticeable when walking. You may feel like you are walking on something under the ball of your foot like a pebble. The ball of the foot may feel swollen. Numbness, tingling, burning or even cramping in the toes may also be present. Rubbing the forefoot and rest give temporary relief from the pain but it always seems to return.
What Treatments Are Available For Neuromas?
Treatment for Morton’s neuroma is aimed at reducing the swelling in the enlarged, painful nerve in the forefoot. Since shoes are the main culprit, they need to be closely evaluated. The shoe needs to be loose fitting with a wide toe box to allow plenty of room for the toes. As we discussed, cramping of the toes into tight shoes leads to swelling of the nerves. Icing the ball of the foot several times a day for 20 minutes also helps to reduce the pain and inflammation. Soft insoles that reduce pressure off of the forefoot and cushion the nerves. If these measures fail to relieve the pain, we recommend a consultation with a Family Foot & Ankle Centers foot specialist to discuss further options.
Unfortunately, neuromas do not go away on their own, and their symptoms can worsen over time. The good news is that your Waxahachie podiatrist have treated this condition thousand’s of times and we can help you walk without pain.
