That May Not Be a Pebble in Your Shoe
If you’re like most people, when you have a pebble in your shoe, you immediately remove it. Indeed, what could be more annoying? How about being unable to get rid of the source of the irritation – because it’s not a pebble, but a neuroma? A thickening of the nerve tissue between the metatarsal bones, it often results from regularly wearing tight, narrow shoes, which can pinch nerves in the feet; and it can feel like a pebble, a wrinkled sock, or a ball under the toes.
Of course, there are other conditions, including stress fractures, which have similar symptoms. So, if you suspect that you have a neuroma, come see us to ensure that you get the proper diagnosis and treatment.
