• Do I Have Morton's Neuroma?

    on May 15th, 2017

Morton’s neuromas are a very common problem seen in my office on a daily basis. They can be easily diagnosed with a complete physical exam and a routine in office ultrasound. More extensive diagnostic tools are rarely needed. Surgical intervention is rare in my office.  The multifaceted treatment plan includes 1 Cortisone injection, 2 Orthotic evaluation, 3 Physical therapy.  These three treatment modalities are very productive in treating the short and long term symptoms of this painful condition.  The use of chemical ablation is also frequently used prior to surgical intervention.  Chemical ablation involves injecting the nerve mass with 4% dehydrated in office to chemically eliminate the pathologic nerve. All of the treatment plans discussed above involve no downtime from work or activities.
