Do you get a painful burning sensation at the ball of your feet with numbness and tingling in your toes? Or when you’re wearing a shoe does it feel like you’re stepping on a fold in your sock or that there’s a pebble in your shoe? These can be signs and symptoms of a Neuroma.
A Neuroma is the thickening of the tissue surrounding a nerve in the foot and these could actually irritate the nerve.
The ways in which we can help is to suggest just different styles of footwear and we can add metatarsal pads or neuroma pads that can either go straight to your sock liner in the shoe or they can be added to your orthotics themselves if you are wearing them. Both these methods are designed to take pressure off the nerve to give you some relief to get you back on your feet.
So if you do deal with this pain whether it be during activities or just the daily pain while you’re at work, come and see us for some help. Call Burlington Orthotic Centre today at 905-331-4391 for details.
