Neuromas are a condition that can cause significant pain since they involve the nerves in the foot. This condition can be treated, but must be done so timely to prevent surgery. Our podiatrist, Adam Mucinskas, D.P.M., can assist with treating this condition with precision and care at Feet First Foot Care Specialists, LLC, located in Cromwell, CT. Please call our offices at (860) 632-5499. Also, check out our Patient Education which has a vast variety of information on this and many other foot and ankle subjects.

Morton's Neuroma is a growth of nerve tissue that forms in the foot and can be very painful due to the fact that it involves nerves. This condition develops when there is an inflamed nerve in the ball of the foot and is accompanied by burning or tingling pains that can suddenly begin when walking, with numbness growing among the toes. The pain associated with this condition generally occurs when weight is born by the foot during normal walking, running or any other significant form of movement. A throbbing pain can happen on the sides of toes, especially after walking. Moreover, pain may occur suddenly while walking, at which point the foot will need to rest to stop it from continuing.

Preventative tips include using proper footwear that help with alleviating pain, using medicines to reduce severe discomfort or utilizing steroids to reduce inflammation caused by this condition. Surgery may, however, be required to eliminate the injured nerve or to take away the pressure placed upon on it. The longer this condition goes on without treatment, the more likely surgery will be required. Surgery will involve removing the nerve completely or cutting surrounding ligaments to relieve pressure.

Neuromas require proper care and attention since they can cause lasting damage to the foot. They can cause severe pain when left untreated and should not be ignored as they can get worse. Please take the time to contact us to schedule a consultation and take the first step to stopping the effects of neuromas before they stop you from enjoying your mobility.
