Neuroma Q & A

What is a neuroma?

A neuroma, also known as Morton’s neuroma, is a painful condition that causes a thickening of the tissue around one or more of the nerves leading to your toes. Over time, this may cause a tingling, burning, or stinging sensation in the ball of your foot. 

Experts aren’t entirely sure what causes neuromas to form, but it’s thought that wearing high heels or other tight shoes may contribute to the problem. If you or a loved one regularly experience pain in the ball of your foot, make an appointment at Precision Podiatry as soon as possible. 

What are the symptoms of a neuroma?

Neuromas don’t present any visible outward symptoms, such as bumps or bruises. Instead, it’s common to experience:

  • Tingling in your toes
  • Numbness in your toes
  • Burning pain in the ball of your foot

If you have a neuroma, it might also feel like you have a pebble or piece of gravel stuck in your shoe.

When should I see a doctor about a neuroma?

Foot pain that lasts for more than a day or two isn’t normal. If your pain persists, even after conservative measures of care like ice and elevation, make an appointment at Precision Podiatry. This is particularly true if you experience a burning or sharp pain in the ball of your foot that doesn’t respond to rest or changing footwear. 

How are neuromas diagnosed?

To diagnose a neuroma, your Precision Podiatry provider reviews your medical history, asks you about your symptoms, and examines your foot. Your doctor also gently presses on the ball of your foot to feel for a mass or tender spot. 

If a physical exam doesn’t provide enough information, your provider might also order a series of X-rays, an ultrasound, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 

How are neuromas treated?

Whenever possible, the team at Precision Podiatry uses conservative measures to treat pain caused by neuromas. For example, your doctor might recommend physical therapy, arch supports, or shoe inserts to reduce pressure on your nerve. 

If conservative measures of care don’t provide relief, your doctor might recommend:

  • Injections of corticosteroids
  • Decompression surgery
  • Removal of the nerve

Neuroma surgery is usually an outpatient procedure, meaning you’re able to return home on the same day of your operation. 

If you regularly experience pain in the ball of your foot and it’s not responding to conservative treatments, make a neuroma appointment at Precision Podiatry today by calling the office nearest you. You can reach us in our Austin office at (512) 351-9149, our Cedar Park office at (512) 336-2300, our Round Rock office at (512) 255-0125, or our Hutto, TX office at (512) 255-0125!
