Our Podiatrist in Greensburg, Somerset, Mount Pleasant & Shadyside, PA, specialize in neuropathy & neuroma treatment
DO YOUR FEET FEEL NUMB, DO THEY TINGLE, ARE THEY BURNING?
ARE YOU EXPERIENCING SHOOTING PAINS, A LOSS OF BALANCE OR THE FEELING THAT YOUR SOCK IS ROLLED UP UNDER YOUR TOES?
IF SO, YOU MAY HAVE PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY.
There are over 100 known causes of peripheral neuropathy and you may be especially prone to developing this condition if you are a diabetic. At Laurel Podiatry, our foot doctor can perform a simple skin biopsy in which we will determine the concentration of small nerve fibers in your lower extremity. This allows us to diagnose and effectively treat your condition. Treatment for peripheral neuropathy includes nutritional supplements, prescription medications, injection therapy and in some cases surgical procedures to release swollen and compressed nerves. The latest technology for neuropathy pain management is MLS Laser Therapy.

ARE YOU EXPERIENCING NUMBNESS OR TINGLING INTO THE TOES?
DO YOU FEEL A BURNING SENSATION ON THE BALL OF YOUR FOOT OR DO YOU HAVE THE FEELING THAT YOUR SOCK IS WRINKLED?
Neuromas are an impingement and inflammation of a nerve between the metatarsal bones of the foot. Conditions can lead to burning, numbness of the toes, and the sensation of the sock being rolled within the shoe. We offer successful, conservative care without the need of surgery.
Pressure from ill-fitting shoes or abnormal bone structure can also lead to this condition. Depending on the severity, treatments may include orthotics (shoe inserts), cortisone injections, and, in extreme cases, surgical removal of the growth. .
If you think you have a neuroma, schedule an appointment today with our practice, Laurel Podiatry, to discuss and implement a comprehensive treatment plan.
