Stop The Pain and discomfort caused by Neuromas!
In the early stages, pain may be relieved by avoiding higher heeled shoes, or by wearing soft insoles and supportive athletic or walking shoes. As the nerve becomes more irritated, swollen and inflamed even high doses of anti-inflammatories generate little to no relief of the symptoms. Cortisone injections are usually only temporary and multiple alcohol injections are of little benefit.
Neuroma surgery is at best a “crap shoot;” as even when the result is “good,” reoccurrence or generation of a new neuroma in the adjacent inter-space or other foot usually occurs.
Treat the cause of the inflamed nerve! For the most part, it is commonly accepted that the cause of the problem is excess pressure on the inter-metatarsal nerve between the 2nd and 3rd, or 3rd and 4th metatarsals. It is believed that collapse of the long arch of the foot results in a breakdown of the metatarsal arch and places excessive pressure on the involved nerves. Although this condition generally begins with only one nerve it often progresses over time to involve nerves in both inter-spaces in both feet. The pain associated with weight bearing activity frequently reaches a point were the patient pleads to have their neuromas removed surgically. Although this is a tempting option, it rarely results in a good result, as not only can the nerve regrow, this time in scar tissue from the surgery, but often it fails to resolve much if any of the pain. Complications following the surgery include stump neuromas, new neuromas in the adjacent inter-space or opposite foot, heavy painful scar tissue, and other common surgical problems. Successful treatment requires something that will decrease the pressure on the involved nerves on a permanent basis.
Theta Orthotics relieve more pressure that causes Neuromas
Simple treatments that use pads to support the metatarsal arch or spread the metatarsals so as to reduce some of the pressure on the nerve may be helpful in the early stages of the problem. Even avoidance of higher heeled shoes sometimes helps initially. Eventually, if the patient remains active, more aggressive attempts to reduce the pressure on the nerve are required to get any help at all. Custom orthotics that attempt to restore the longitudinal arch , maintain the metatarsal arch , and relieve the pressure, irritation, inflammation, swelling and pain have been reported as effective treatments for many years.
Many foot specialists will suggest that even those custom orthotics, when worn during all weight bearing periods, fall short of stopping the progression of this painful condition. Nerve pain is difficult to treat in any part of the human body but on the ball of the foot it can be a nightmare. When orthotics fail to adequately relieve the pain, it is usually because they fail to relieve sufficient pressure from the nerve.
The more pressure that can be relieved from the nerve, the more successful the treatment. Because Theta-Orthotics have more correction, almost twice as much, than any other orthotic you can buy, they can relieve much more pain. In fact, the amount of pressure that can be generated by full time use of Theta-Orthotics is often sufficient to decrease inflammation, swelling, and the actual size of your neuroma.
Let Theta start to control your neuroma pain today!
Neuromas are probably one of the more difficult conditions that I treat. Recovery from nerve damage involves a reawakening process that can have set backs and times where you wonder if the treatment will work. Considering all factors, treatment with Theta-Orthotics is clearly superior to any other options available. When my patients are consistent with my recommendations, this treatment is highly successful. As a podiatric surgeon, I have experienced all of the failures possible with cortisone, alcohol injections, and the many surgical procedures intended to help this condition. Without hesitation and considering all factors involved, after 20 years as a podiatric surgeon, I now recommend the following:
1. Do not consider neuroma surgery until you have tried Theta-Orthotics.
2. Waste little time on medications, painful injections, and expensive physical therapy.
3. If you are now desperate with pain and have already tried other treatments, including surgery, start treatment with Theta-Orthotics today as it IS your best hope.
