Neuromas are a common problem we treat in our office. Dr. Brad Schaeffer, a podiatrist at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists, explains treatment options for neuromas. Dr. Schaeffer explains his number one treatment method, cortisone injections, to relieve the inflammation. Then, there are other options to prevent the neuroma pain from back such as orthotics and proper fitting shoes.
If you are experiencing any tingling or burning sensations you need to see a podiatrist immediately. While the pain could be from a neuroma, there are other reasons you could be feeling those sensations and early treatment is always the best answer. By letting a problem go, you are at risk for developing more serious problems that can become harder to to treat.
