Neuroma most commonly affects the foot at the base of the third and fourth toes. The thickening of the nerves in this area result in compression and irritation. This causes severe swelling, discomfort and can even lead to permanent nerve damage. To lessen pain, decrease swelling and prevent nerve damage, a podiatrist will:
- Examine your foot to determine the best treatment
- Pad and ice your foot to reduce swelling
- Suggest orthopedic support shoes and insoles
- Treat your condition with anti-inflammatory medications
- Offer effective surgery and injection therapy options
