Condition :

Neuroma

When there is a compression of a nerve between two bones in the foot, a neuroma can occur. In reaction to this repeated friction when walking, the nerve gets thicker and sends pain signals. Wearing inadequate shoes can lead to this problem over time. Your podiatrist will give you advice on a proper footwear for your condition. There are also treatments to relieve pain such as a cortisone injection, ultrasound therapy and cushioned shoe pads. Custom foot orthotics are indicated when the nerve compression is caused by the malalignment of the feet. Severe cases can require surgery.

•Burning or electrical shock sensation in the toes;
•Feeling of having a fold in your sock or a bump inside your shoe.

Neuroma

Condition :

Plantar wart

A plantar wart is a viral infection caused by human papilloma virus (HPV). Left untreated, plantar warts can multiply, grow in size and become painful when walking. The podiatrist can treat your warts and help you avoid recurrence of this problem.

•Growth under the foot or on the toes with or without callus on top ;
•Black pinpoints (small clotted blood vessels) ;
•Possibly painful when walking.
