Neuromas on Foot Services

We diagnose and treat pinched nerves in the feet at Lake Pointe Orthopedics. Neuromas, or pinched nerves, can cause pain and discomfort that can prevent you from walking or doing daily activities. Our team has extensive knowledge of the complexities surrounding neuromas; This way we are able to provide treatment plans tailored to your needs.

Comprehensive Evaluation

We administer a complete assessment in order to properly diagnose your neuroma. Dr. Kris DiNucci and our experienced medical team will look at your medical record, perform an extensive physical examination and suggest X-rays or MRI scans for assessing the severity of the condition as additional diagnostic imaging tests if necessary.

Individualized Treatment Plans

After the diagnosis, we will make a customized treatment plan that suits your specific needs and wants. Our aim is to give relief for pain, bring back normal function and stop the further development of neuroma. Treatment methods can be:

  1. Nonoperative Treatments: Conservative procedures take precedence with us by using such measures as personalized orthotics, supportive shoes, padding, and activity alterations. These non-surgical techniques are meant to relieve pressure on the compressed nerve and alleviate symptoms.
  2. Medication: Painkillers may be recommended in some situations whether over-the-counter or prescription to address the pain and inflammation associated with neuromas after thoroughly assessing your medical history and general physical condition; our group will decide what kind of drug therapy is appropriate for you.
  3. Injections: Corticosteroid injections can be given into the affected area directly so as to ease temporary pain relief while minimizing inflammation; this is a low-risk procedure that can be performed at our clinic and often brings considerable benefits in terms of symptom reduction among patients suffering from neuromas.
  4. Physical Therapy: We have licensed physical therapists who work closely together with clients where they come up with individualized exercise programs aimed at strengthening foot/ankle muscles, improving motion range as well as enhancing overall mobility ability.
  5. Surgical Operation: If conservative treatments do not work well enough or if the neuroma is severe, one may have to go through surgery. Dr. Kris DiNucci has adeptness in complex surgical methods of treating neuromas such as decompressing the nerve and taking it out.
