That is a good question….It starts with a benign growth of nerve tissue most commonly found between the third and fourth toes. You will recognize symptoms that cause pain, such as burning or sharpness on the bottom of your feet. The nerve becomes inflamed and swollen which sends a numbness sensation directly to your nearby toes.

Symptoms

  • Burning sensation on the bottom of your feet will become noticeable slowly but surely.
  • Sharp pain in your foot that hurts more when you apply pressure or walk on it
  • Small bump can appear inside the ball of your foot and you will notice it by inspecting the area with your fingertips.
  • Tingling and numbness between the toes and sometimes in the ball of your foot is common and can be one of the first signs.

Diagnoses

  • X-rays will rule out a stress fractures or other injuries that may be causing the pain. An X-ray is the most conventional way to detect a problem.
  • An MRI can be very effective in determining neuroma as well as any other hidden issues under the skin.
  • Ultrasound is a simple test that can be done in the office and is safe a and noninvasive procedure. No that the other two options are invasive but our doctors will guide you and recommend what is best for your pain level and their experience.

Solutions

  • Avoid wearing tight, poorly shaped, or high-heeled shoes.
  • Apply ice for approximately 10 to 15 minutes at a time for a couple of days to see if the symptoms change.
  • Massaging the bottom of your foot around the painful area each day or when it hurts the most.
  • Rest your feet by reducing any daily activities that put stress on your toes.
  • A doctor approved anti- inflammatory medicine can help to temporarily reduce pain and swelling.

Coping with Podiatric Stress Fractures

Stress Fractures occur on the foot and ankle when muscles in these areas weaken as a result of overexertion or underuse.  As a result, the ankles and feet lose support when walking or running from the ground. Since these bones are not protected, they receive the full impact of each step. The stress on the feet causes the bones to form cracks.

What are Stress Fractures?

Stress Fractures are very common among those who are highly active and involved in sports or activities that make excessive use of their legs and feet. Stress fractures are especially common among:

-athletes (gymnasts, tennis players, basketball players)
-runners/joggers
-osteoporosis patients
-those who engage in high-intensity workouts

Stress Fracture Symptoms

Pain from the fractures occur in the area of the fractures, and can be either constant or periodic. The pain is usually sharp or dull, accompanied by swelling and tenderness. Engagement in any kind of high impact activity will exacerbate the pain.

Foot surgery is sometimes necessary. If you are struggling with a foot or ankle condition, talk to Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can treat your foot and ankle needs.  

When Is Surgery Necessary?

Foot and ankle surgery is generally reserved for cases in which less invasive, conservative procedures have failed to help with the problem. Some of the cases in which surgery may be necessary are:

  • Removing foot deformities like bone spurs and bunions
  • Severe arthritis that has caused bone issues
  • Cosmetic reconstruction

What Types of Surgery Are There?

The type of surgery you receive will depend on the nature of the problem you have. Some of the possible surgeries include:

  • Bunionectomy for painful bunions
  • Surgical fusion for realignment of bones
  • Neuropathy decompression surgery to treat nerve damage

Benefits of Surgery

Although surgery is usually a last resort, it can provide more complete pain relief compared to non-surgical methods and may allow you to finally resume full activity.

Surgical techniques have also become increasingly sophisticated. Techniques like endoscopic surgery allow for smaller incisions and faster recovery times.
