Common Symptoms of a Neuropathy are:

  • Your feet feel Numbness or Tingling sensation

  • Loss of balance

  • Shooting pains in the toes or feet

  • Feeling that your sock is rolled up under your toes

Our Foot Doctor can perform a simple skin biopsy in which we will determine the concentration of small nerve fibers in your lower extremity. This allows us to diagnose and effectively treat your condition.

Treatment for peripheral neuropathy includes nutritional supplements, prescription medications, injection therapy and in some cases surgical procedures to release swollen and compressed nerves.

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms or have been diagnosed with diabetes, it is essential that you make an appointment with Main Street Foot and Ankle Care for a comprehensive evaluation.

 


 

MORTON’S NEUROMA

toms river nj foot doctor specializes in morton’s neuroma treatment

A neuroma is an enlargement of the nerve that provides sensation to the toes. This enlargement can be due to poor foot structure, poorly fitting shoes or trauma to the feet.

Common Symptoms of a neuroma are:

  • Pain between your toes

  • Swelling between your toes

  • Pain in your forefoot

  • Pain when you put weight on the ball of your foot

  • Numbness or Tingling in the ball of your foot

IF SO, YOU MAY HAVE A NEUROMA.

This condition involves painful nerve tumors in the forefeet and is treated with injection therapy, padding, metatarsal pads, and custom molded orthotics. These therapies achieve resolution of the pain in approximately 50% of cases. If these conservative treatments do not relieve the symptoms, surgical excision of the neuroma is recommended, with 4% alcohol sclerosing injections offered at our podiatry practice.
