A neuroma is a condition that occurs when the nerve tissue in the ball of the foot becomes thickened and irritated, often resulting in pain, tingling, and numbness. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, high-heeled shoes, and certain foot conditions such as bunions or hammertoes. To treat neuromas, a podiatrist may first recommend conservative measures such as rest, ice, and physical therapy. They may also suggest custom-made orthotic inserts to redistribute pressure on the ball of the foot and alleviate pain. In some cases, a podiatrist may recommend a corticosteroid injection to reduce inflammation and pain. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the affected nerve tissue. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent further complications and to alleviate pain caused by a neuroma.
