Treatment for Burning and Tingling Caused by Neuroma

Author: Parker Foot & Ankle

Are you experiencing numbness or tingling into your adjacent toes? Do you feel a burning sensation on the ball of your foot? Or a sharp, shooting, electrical sensation into the toes? If so, you may have a neuroma. A neuroma is an entrapment and enlargement of a nerve in the forefoot that supplies the toes. This enlargement can be due to abnormal biomechanics, poorly fitting shoes, or trauma in the foot. Treatment for neuromas typically includes custom orthotic devices, oral anti-inflammatory medication, and injection therapy. In some cases, we may need to perform a surgical procedure to relieve your symptoms. In this case, we try very hard not to remove this nerve because that can have difficult consequences such as recurrent neuromas. I perform the new EDIN procedure which stands for Endoscopic Decompression of the Intermetatarsal Nerve. This is performed through a two-stitch incision, and your sutures are out in about a week.

If you think you have a neuroma, come in for a consultation and let us evaluate you.
