" A neuroma is an inflammation and thickening of neurve tissue in the ball of the foot, usually between the third and forth toes.  If you have a neuroma, deal with it early because it's much easier to make an improvement then," states Podiatrist, Dr. Bob Baravarian, cheif of podiatric foot and ankle surgery at Santa Monica/UCLA Medical Center and Orthopedic Hospital.  "Make sure your shoes are wide enough to avoid squeezing; orthotics and over-the- counter insole pads to cushion the ball of the foot can also help."

"You are better off in rigid-soled shoes that give more support.  If you are going to wear high heels, choose a platform or a wedge-- or try to wear a bulkier heel so you don't teeter on it," says Podiatrist Baravarian.  "If pain continues, a cortisone injection can offer temporary relief by calming the nerve.  It is not a cure, though, and repeated injections are not recommended as they can lead to nerve atrophy."
