Neuromas- Why Are My Toes Going Numb?

A neuroma is really a misnomer.  The name makes it sound like a tumor, and the diagnosis is commonly know as a Morton's neuroma. It is more accurately stated as a pinched nerve between two metatarsals heads.  It's very similar to carpal tunnel syndrome, where the nerve is being compressed and giving painful symptoms and numbness.

There are several different treatments for neuromas including injections, custom orthotics with a metatarsal pad built into the orthotic, and surgical options.  If you are getting numbness in your feet and toes with activity, it is not normal.  Call us today at 719-488-4664, so we can help alleviate your foot problems!
