Feel like there's a rock in your foot?

Have you or someone you know ever experienced a pinched nerve between your toes that can be painful, has a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness? This is referred to as a neuroma. The main sympton people experience with neuromas is pain between the toes while walking. It is actually a small growth of nerve tissue that is generally located between the third and fourth toes. Some describe the pain to be similar with having a stone in the bottom of their shoe. 

The definitive cause is still unclear, but there are some common causes they believe contribute to neuromas developing.

  • Biochemical deformities, such as flatfoot or a high-arched foot
  • Trauma to that area of the foot that can bring damage to the nerve
  • Improper footwear that causes toes to be squeezed together too tight

Symptoms of a neuroma are:

  • Pain the forefoot and between the toes
  • Tingling and numbness in the ball of foot
  • Swelling between the toes

It's best to see a podiatrist as soon as you notice something wrong in your foot. As always, you can call us at (615)220-8788 or schedule an appointmetn at www.neufoot.com
