Helping you overcome your foot and ankle pain through our advanced facilities so you can get back to doing the things you love …and work.

If you notice a sharp pain, burning, or tingling sensation developing on your foot, particularly on the ball of your foot between your third and fourth toes, you may have a neuroma. These are small, benign growths of nerve tissue that can cause severe pain and discomfort if not treated.

At Advanced Foot and Ankle Centers of Illinois, we have the knowledge and skill to treat neuromas, among other foot conditions. We understand that dealing with neuromas can be scary and frustrating since the pain prevents you from easily accomplishing daily tasks, which is why our friendly staff will work hard to make you comfortable during the treatment.

What Causes Neuromas?

Neuromas develop when the tissue surrounding a nerve on the ball of your foot thickens, creating a benign tumor. 

While there can be other causes, the top causes are: 

  • Tight shoes 
  • High heels 
  • Biomechanical imbalance- close bones that pinch the nerve by the toes 

Symptoms of Neuromas

If you have these symptoms, you probably have a neuroma: 

  • A sensation of walking on a rock or pebble.
  • The balls of your feet feel swollen.
  • Shooting pains in your toes.
