Neuroma & Orthotics

Posted by Vern S. on 3/12/04 at 14:48 (146802)

Got custom orthotics a year ago. Have had a little improvement with heel pain, but neuroma pain in the ball of the foot became a real problem.
Finally got back to where I bought them, and had them adjusted. A little extra padding was placed on the bottom between the arch and ball. Now my toes and ball seem a little suspended and feel considerably better. Closet thing to a quick fix I can galdly report.

Releiving neuroma pain with orthotics can be tricky. It sounds like your practitioner knows his/her stuff.
