Are your feet burning, tingling, or even feeling numb? Do you experience shooting pain, especially while you walk or stand? Chances are, you could be suffering from a condition called neuroma.

At Apache Foot & Ankle Specialist, we understand that neuroma can be a debilitating condition that can significantly impact your day to day life. Neuroma is a condition where a nerve in the foot becomes irritated or inflamed, often causing intense pain.

Though it is difficult to discern the exact cause of neuroma, it is usually attributed to repetitive pressure and traumas to the feet. It is also commonly found in people with flat feet or those who wear poorly fitting shoes.

Some of the most common symptoms of neuroma include pain, tingling, numbness, and burning sensations in the feet. The pain may be dull or sharp and is often described as feeling like a pebble is stuck in the shoe. It can also radiate to the toes, up the leg, and even to the back.

Rest and Time: Sometimes, the best course of action might be to rest the foot and help it heal naturally. Rest and time will give the inflamed nerve a chance to recover and reduce the pressure around it. This also involves wearing a specific type of footwear that distributes the pressure evenly throughout the foot.

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy can help stretch and strengthen the muscles that support the foot, and this can help prevent the recurrence of a neuroma. Physical therapy can also improve the mobility of the feet, leading to better overall foot health.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is essential to seek medical attention at the earliest. Delaying treatment can lead to further complications and aggravate the condition. At Apache Foot & Ankle Specialist, we specialize in diagnosing and treating neuroma conditions.

Our team of podiatrists and professionals have years of experience in treating a variety of podiatric conditions, including neuroma. We understand that every patient is different, and, as such, we offer personalized treatments based on their unique symptoms and conditions.

Our first approach to treating neuroma is usually to examine the foot and perform a thorough diagnosis. We use several diagnostic tools, including ultrasounds and X-rays, to help determine the extent of the condition.

Once a diagnosis is made, we work closely with our patients to design a treatment plan that addresses their symptoms and aims to provide long-term relief. Some of the treatment options we may recommend include:

Orthotics: We may recommend orthotics or shoe inserts to help cushion the foot and provide support. This can help shift the pressure away from the inflamed nerve and relieve symptoms.

Medication: We may prescribe medication for the pain and inflammation associated with neuroma. This may include NSAIDs, corticosteroids, or other medications.

Surgery: Surgery is the last resort and is only recommended for severe cases of neuroma. We use minimally invasive procedures to help remove the inflamed nerve while minimizing incision and scarring.

At Apache Foot & Ankle Specialist, we prioritize the patient’s comfort and convenience. We understand that every patient’s circumstances are different, and we take the time to tailor treatments based on their unique needs, medical history, and condition.

We believe in open communication and encourage our patients to ask questions and discuss their concerns with us. We are committed to giving you the best possible care and making your journey to recovery as smooth as possible.

In conclusion, if you are experiencing symptoms of neuroma, it is essential to seek medical attention. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent the condition from worsening and reduce the likelihood of further complications. At Apache Foot & Ankle Specialist, we specialize in diagnosing and treating neuroma and have helped countless patients find relief from their symptoms.
