Metatarsalgia - Neuromas - Numbness


A neuroma is a painful condition, also referred to as a "pinched nerve" or a nerve tumor. It is a benign growth of nerve tissue frequently found between the third and fourth toes that brings on pain, a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot. 
The principal symptom associated with a neuroma is pain between the toes while walking. Those suffering from the condition often find relief by stopping their walk, taking off their shoe, and rubbing the affected area. At times, the patient will describe the pain as similar to having a stone in his or her shoe. The vast majority of people who develop neuromas are women.

 

 

neuromas Symptoms
  • Pain in the forefoot and between the toes.
  • Tingling and numbness in the ball of the foot.
  • Swelling between the toes.
  • Pain in the ball of the foot when weight is placed on it.

 

Treatment
Treatment options vary with the severity of each neuroma, and identifying the neuroma early in its development is important to avoid surgical correction. Podiatric medical care should be sought at the first sign of pain or discomfort; if left untreated, neuromas tend to get worse. 
The primary goal of most early treatment regimens is to relieve pressure on areas where a neuroma develops. Your Chiropodist will examine and likely X-ray the affected area and suggest a treatment plan that best suits your individual case.
