nerve treatment

Posted by Marty on 6/12/01 at 16:52 (050535)

I don't know for sure if or where the nerve entrapment is but what can be done for it other then surgery?

I have numbness and tingling right where the small nerve (as my pod put it) is in my heel. Seems to be right where pf is as well.

Injections of Alcohol scerotic (4% ) solution could be used if this isn't in the tarsal tunnel areas and in the plantar fascia insertional area.

Is this something that is done just once or over several?

Ice is a very good form of treatment for nerve pain.
