Neuroma Treatment in Our Ennis TX Office

neuromes in ennis txGet Back On Your Feet & to Pain-Free Living

If you have ever had a neuroma, you know how painful it can be. A neuroma, or Morton’s neuroma, is a benign condition that typically occurs in the small nerve that runs between the metatarsal bones in the ball of the foot and into the third and fourth toes. It is usually caused by narrow shoes, high heels, injuries, or foot abnormalities.

This irritation results in inflammation and scar tissue forms around the nerve, causing pain that can quickly knock you off your feet. When this occurs, look to our 5-star podiatry team at Family Foot & Ankle Centers. With decades of experience of treating neuromas in Ennis, TX, we can help get you back to pain-free living.

What Are the Symptoms of a Neuroma?

This condition causes shooting, burning, or electric-like pain, usually in the 2nd-4th toe. People will complain of pain in the ball of their foot, usually just behind the second or third toe that either causes numbness into the toes or shooting pain into the toes. The pain can be intense or just a dull ache that they describe but usually gets progressively worse with activity. The pain can be bad enough to cause you to stop running, and may even result in a limp.Unfortunately, neuromas do not go away on their own and over time, their symptoms can get worse. We encourage you to schedule an exam as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • Pain in your forefoot
  • Pain between your toes
  • Swelling between your toes
  • Tingling or numbness in the ball of your foot
  • Pain when you put weight on the ball of your foot

Neuromas can be painful! So the sooner you visit Family Foot & Ankle Centers for your foot pain, the more likely you will be able to avoid surgery.

What is the Treatment for a Neuroma?

The podiatrists at Family Foot & Ankle Centers treat Morton’s neuroma on a daily basis. We can help alleviate this painful condition and develop a treatment plan specific for you depending on the symptoms you are experiencing. Treatments may begin by applying a offloading pad to the arch to relieve pressure on the nerve. Ice packs can also help reduce pain and swelling. You Ennis podiatrist may create a custom orthotic to help support the foot and reduce pressure on the nerve. Shoes need to have a wide toe box with a heel less than 2 inches high to reduce pressure on the ball of the foot. Steroid injections, which are relatively painless, have been extremely effective to reduce the pain and inflammation in the nerve.

Surgical treatment may be recommended by your foot doctor if all other treatments fail to provide adequate relief. The surgical procedure involves removal of the inflamed nerve and this performed as an outpatient procedure.

If you are looking for a Podiatrist look no further. This clinic has taken care of my son. It was so nice to go in and have the entire staff make us feel welcomed and answer all of our questions. We got in quickly and the x-rays are done in the clinic.
