At Shearman Podiatry, we recognise how numbness, pins and needles and splayed toes can impact on your life, whether it’s when you’re out doing shopping, walking the dog, or simply trying to work.
I visited Nicola for the first time after experiencing pain in my toes when cycling. She quickly diagnosed it as a trapped nerve and has helped to alleviate the pain by creating an orthotic for my cycling shoe. Nicola has a wealth of experience and that combined with a very positive attitude and cheerful disposition makes a visit to the podiatrist quite a pleasant one!
A Musculoskeletal podiatrist is an expert in treating nerve related foot pain so that you can get back to your everyday walk, or aiming for your running goal.
A neuroma is most commonly located between the intermetatarsal joints and can cause the toes to splay.
Common causes of neuromas are narrow shoes, joints which are too close together or high arched feet.
We will take a thorough history of your problem. You will have a full musculoskeletal assessment of your foot and ankle joints, muscles, a weightbearing assessment and a video gait analysis assessment.
We will then have a discussion regarding the highest quality treatment for your condition and together make a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Treatments offered for this condition includes:
Altering footwear type.
Orthoses specific to your condition.
Steroid injection intervention options.
