Effective In-Office Treatments for Foot Neuroma
Do you often feel tingling, burning, and numbness in one or both feet? Or have those sensations long since escalated into outright pain? If so, you may have a foot neuroma, or pinched nerve. If that’s the case, the pain and other sensations will likely keep getting worse without treatment. Thankfully, you can get the care you need from an Austin TX podiatrist. Here’s how they can help.
Podiatrists can create custom orthotics that take the pressure off the pinched nerve. You can then simply slip the orthotics into your shoes and go about the rest of your day in pure comfort. In fact, you can get custom orthotics in Austin TX made for all types of shoes, including sneakers, dress shoes, and even high heels. Their personalized design goes well beyond over-the-counter inserts in helping relieve your pain and discomfort.
Minimally Invasive Injections
When overly agitated, the pinched nerves in your feet can leave you in a world of hurt until the treatment starts to work. You may then find it hard to manage your daily obligations as a result. To help you get quick relief from the pain and discomfort, your podiatrist can administer minimally invasive injections.
The most effective minimally invasive injections for neuromas include:
- Local anesthetic
- Alcohol sclerosing injections
Your podiatrist will use their exam findings to determine which injections to use for your foot neuroma. Although instant relief is possible, it could take a couple of treatments before you’re feeling 100% once again.
