Aggravated Nerves & Neuromas
Abnormal nerve sensations such as pins-and–needles, tingling, burning prickling or similar feelings are known as “aggravated” nerves, or paresthesias. They usually result from nerve damage due to pressure, entrapment, nerve disease, or caused by medical conditions. Continued nerve damage can lead to foot numbness and permanent loss of feeling. Any abnormal sensation needs medical investigation. If you suffer from aggravated nerves, we invite you to make an appointment with one of our doctors for an actual diagnosis.
Common aggravated nerves in the foot and ankle:
Morton’s NeuromaA neuroma is a condition that arises from irritation of a nerve resulting in inflammation or “aggravation” of the nerve sheath. Scar tissue will form around the nerve and this is a benign condition. Irritation to the nerve can result from improper shoes, injury, or a mechanical abnormality of the foot and depends on the specifics of your condition.
Peripheral NeuropathyPeripheral neuropathy describes damage to the peripheral nervous system, the vast communications network that transmits information from the brain and spinal cord to every other part of the body. Damage to the peripheral nervous system interferes with these vital connections and distorts, and sometimes interrupts, messages between the brain and the spinal cord. Causes may be inherited or acquired and can include physical injury to a nerve, tumors, toxins, autoimmune responses, nutritional deficiencies, alcoholism, and vascular and metabolic disorders. Diabetes is a common cause of peripheral neuropathy.
Tarsal Tunnel SyndromeTarsal Tunnel syndrome results when the nerve that runs on the inside of the ankle joint (the posterior tibial nerve) is compressed in a small space and becomes “pinched” and “aggravated.” This is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrist.
Why Advanced Foot & Ankle Surgeons
There are conservative and preventative steps that can minimize the discomfort of aggravated nerves. When these more conservative treatments fail to provide a satisfactory solution, additional procedures or surgery may be recommended. Our doctors will always begin with a conservative treatment program. If the more conservative treatment fails to provide adequate relief, you may be considered a candidate for surgery to permanently correct the problem.
Our doctors have specialized training in all of the latest, advanced surgical and procedural techniques for all types of nerve pain.
There are many advantages to having your nerve pain evaluated and treated by the experienced and highly skilled physicians at Advanced Foot & Ankle. Some of these advantages are:
Cosmetically appealing results
Our doctors have advanced training in plastic surgery techniques.
Advanced pain management
Our doctors use advanced pain management techniques to minimize post-operative discomfort.
Personalized treatment plan
We treat our patients “as if they were family” and you will receive your surgeon’s full attention before, during and after your procedure. We can even arrange for a patient who has had a similar procedure to share information with you in advance, to give you a well-rounded view of what you might expect during your own procedure and recovery.
Because there are many potential causes of nerve pain, we invite you to make an appointment with one of our doctors to have your nerve pain properly diagnosed. Our doctors at Advanced Foot & Ankle Surgeons are trained to distinguish between all the possibilities and determine the correct diagnosis and they will tailor a treatment program for you.
