Neuroma Specialist in Macedonia, GA
Get Back to Your Pain-Free Life
If you are experiencing the sensation of a small pebble or rock in the ball of your foot along with pain, you might have a neuroma. A neuroma forms when the tissue surrounding the nerves in your toes grows or thickens, causing pain and abnormal sensations in the feet. Our compassionate, experienced podiatry team offers neuroma treatment in Macedonia, GA, to restore your pain-free lifestyle.
Causes & Risk Factors
Neuromas seem to be caused by irritation, injury, or excessive pressure on the nerves in the feet and toes. Other factors include:
- Wearing high heels
- Ill-fitting shoes
- Playing high-impact sports, jogging, or running
- Foot deformities such as bunions, hammertoes, or flat feet
Neuromas do not go away on their own, and the symptoms can worsen over time. We recommend scheduling an appointment if you have any of the following 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
The sooner you visit us for your foot pain, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to avoid surgery.
Treatments will depend on the severity of your case. Initially, something as simple as wider shoes or flats may be effective. Ice applied to the bottom of your foot may also relieve the pain associated with a neuroma. If these measures fail to relieve the symptoms, we recommend a consultation with our podiatrist to discuss further options.
