Does it feel like a sock is constantly bunched up in your shoe and causing you pain? Pain in the ball of your foot could possibly be a neuroma, and a New Jersey podiatrist explains in this video how a minor procedure could alleviate your foot pain.

A neuroma is an inflammation of a nerve. Two of the five bones in your foot basically move together and pinch a nerve, causing it to swell and get inflamed. Unfortunately, the pain doesn’t go away without help from a skilled podiatrist who can give you steroid injections, make custom orthotic inserts for your shoes, or perform a procedure called cryotherapy.

At Family Foot & Ankle Specialists, Dr. Wishnie is one of two podiatrists in this nation who performs cryotherapy, also called cryosurgery. If steroid injections or orthotics don’t take away your foot pain, cryotherapy can by freezing and shrinking the nerve. This simple, special procedure will get you back on your feet immediately. To learn more about options for eliminating your foot pain, call us at 908-874-8030 or 732-968-3833, or contact our offices online at
