Enjoy Your Life Pain-Free with Stop Feet Pain Fast Institute
Nerve pain in your foot is caused by damage within the actual nerve or from pressure placed on the nerve from another condition. Many times this pain is associated with peripheral neuropathy, a result of high blood sugar and diabetes. Neuropathy affects the nerves and symptoms usually present themselves in your hands and feet. If you find yourself feeling pain, numbness, or tingling sensations in your hands or feet, you may be experiencing peripheral neuropathy. To find out what’s causing your discomfort, schedule an exam with our board-certified podiatrist for 5-star-rated treatment for nerve pain in Troy, MI.
Symptoms of Neuropathy
Throughout years of treating diabetic patients, Dr. Weintert has seen and treated all the common neuropathy symptoms, such as:
- Shooting and tingling sensations in one or both feet
- “Pins and needles” sensation in the ball or bottom of the feet, which can also radiate up into the ankle and to the leg
One complication of neuropathy is Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, which occurs when an entrapped nerve gets inflamed and compressed. Neuromas are also treated in patients with neuropathy. This is when nerves become inflamed and cause you to feel as though you have a pebble or a rock permanently in the ball of your foot. It can create heat, swelling, and discomfort.
Treatment for Nerve Pain
Our experienced podiatrist, Dr. Weinert, has treated nerve pain and peripheral neuropathy in many patients over the years with excellent results. One effective treatment option is a medication that is given in a series of injections. This treatment process restores the nerve to proper function again and relieves the patient from the associated pain and discomfort.
Another option recommended by Dr. Weinert is a natural supplement called Metanx. This supplement contains vitamin B6, B12, and folic acid, which work internally to heal the damaged nerve and increase blood circulation going to the nerve to nourish it. Taken for two to six months, Dr. Weinert has seen neuropathy symptoms reversed with this type of treatment. Custom-made orthotics can also alleviate symptoms and help prevent further issues from occurring
