Neuromas

What are Neuromas?

This problem begins when the outer coating of a nerve in your foot thickens. This thickening is usually caused by irritation that results when two hard surfaces rub together, (often due to ill- fitting shoes or abnormal bone movement). Nerve problems due to diabetes or alcoholism may also cause neuroma-like symptoms.

How are Neuromas treated?

Non Surgical treatments include: orthotics, medication, ultrasound, or shoe adjustments. If the neuroma is resistant to conservative care more aggressive treatments can be recommended by you doctor.

Neurolysis procedure how it works:

When the nerve is severely compressed by the callus tissue and from bearing any weight, the nerve reflex signals the skin to produce more callus, which only makes the problem worse. When the nerve is neutralized by the neurolysis procedure, the reflex signal is stopped and the callus stops forming. This allows the skin to get back to normal.

Neurolysis Procedure treatment steps:

1. First, a topical anesthetic is used to numb the area. Then an injection of the neurolysis medication, known as anhydrous alcohol, is given to the site. 2. The areas is then covered with a band aid. This is then repeated 4 more times, every 1-2 weeks. More severe conditions may require two additional shots. Overall success rate is 80%.
