Living with chronic pain in your feet can be detrimental to your health and quality of daily life. After all, we use our feet constantly throughout our day. We use them to walk, climb, stand, and sit down. Without them we would not be able to stay mobile and keep up with society. Unfortunately, some people suffer from chronic pain due to certain types of life altering conditions.

People who live with neuromas or certain types of plantar fasciitis know that living a normal daily life can be a challenge. They often suffer from severe pain and can have difficulty being mobile. These patients typically try many different courses of treatment, such as over the counter pain medication and orthotics. Sometimes these methods do not work and they are left with pain and suffering. Some of these patients then turn to cryotherapy for help.

Cryotherapy is a state of the art therapy for nerve pain relief. It can help treat patients who suffer from neuromas, fibromas, and some types of plantar fasciitis.

How does it work?

Cryotherapy is the process of freezing of nerves. When a nerve is frozen, it stifles the transmission signals that the nerve usually receives to indicate pain, thus reducing pain. The treatment is guided via ultrasound and is done under local anesthesia. This procedure can be done in office during a regular appointment. Most patients respond well to the treatment.

If a patient does not respond well to a treatment, there is no need for panic. The nerve can still be removed with a surgical procedure. Before resorting to this procedure, podiatrists will first try to treat a patient using other options such as injections, physical therapy and insoles. This type of procedure is used as a last resort but prior to a surgical remedy.
