Nerve Impingement Treatment in New Jersey

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.

Nerve compression often occurs when the nerve is pressed between tissue areas such as:

  • Ligament
  • Tendon
  • Bone

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 Neuroma

A neuroma is a condition that arises from nerve irritation 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.

Our doctors have specialized training in all of the latest, advanced surgical and procedural techniques for all types of nerve pain, such as:

Nerve Decompression Surgery

Nerve decompression surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to relieve pressure caused by a neuroma – a pinched or entrapped nerve.

Advanced Injection Treatment for Aggravated Nerves/Neuromas (Alcohol Sclerosing injections)

Nerve “Calming” Injections for Neuromas treat the specific area of the nerve. This special mixture “calms” the nerve over time and reduces the pain and tingling that the patients usually experience with neuromas.

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.
