A complete guide to neuromas: what your doctor may not know: must see video




#Neuromas are inflammation of the nerve in between the metatarsals.
Symptoms:

  • Burning at the bottom of the foot near the toes
  • Feeling of a rolled up sock in the toe space
  • Numbness between the 2nd and 3rd,  or 3rd and 4th   or 2nd to the 4th


Treatments

  • Steroid injection
  • 4% alcohol and / or sarapin injections to deaden the nerve
  • physical therapy: nerve stimulation / ultrasound / range of motion
  • metatarsal cookies / padding
  • Shockwave therapy
  • Radiofrequency ablation (burning of nerve)
  • platelet rich plasma
  • stem cell injection
  • Surgery to remove nerve 
    • NOT recommended as first line of treatment, with complication rates up and above 50%, can be worse than the neuroma pain initially. 
    • Stump neuromas or total regrowth can happen with more pain and now scar tissue
