Neuroma

What is a neuroma?

A neuroma is a thickening of a nerve in the foot. This is a result of compression or irritation of the nerve itself. This can be caused by your foot structure or from wearing shoes with a narrow toe box or high heels. The symptoms of a neuroma can be tingling, burning, or numbness to one or more toes. It can also create the sensation that you are walking on a bunch up sock or bump in your shoe.

How is a neuroma treated?

Depending on the severity of the neuroma you doctor may offer different treatment options. These range from padding, change in shoes, orthotics, medications, injections (*Steroid Aftercare Instructions*), or surgical removal of the neuroma.
