Neuromas are enlarged, benign growths of nerves, most commonly developing between the third and fourth toes.
They are caused by tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. Pressure from poorly-fitting footwear or abnormal bone structure can create the condition as well.
Treatments for neuromas include special shoes or inserts or cortisone injections, although surgical removal of the growth is sometimes necessary.
Progressive Podiatry is an ideal choice for both prevention and treatments. To learn more about Progressive Podiatry, or to schedule a consultation with a specialist, please call (859) 331-2440.
