Foot Neuropathy Treatment
Foot neuropathy covers several types that all stem from underlying causes. When the peripheral nerves are damaged, you will experience symptoms such as weakness, numbness and pain in the affected foot. The peripheral nervous system transmits instructions from the brain and spinal cord to other areas of the body, including the feet. There are quite a number of possible causes of foot neuropathy, including:
- Diabetes mellitus
- Traumatic injury
- Hereditary conditions
- Exposure to toxins
- Metabolic issues
You may be suffering from foot neuropathy if you are experiencing burning, tingling or sharp pains in one or both feet. Symptoms can be relieved or stopped altogether if the underlying cause is effectively treated. Attending a consultation with an orthopedic specialist at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics can help you determine the cause of your discomfort .
Dr. Nic Gay or Dr. Masi Reynolds can identify what is causing your foot neuropathy and provide effective treatment recommendations. Seeking treatment early is advised, as the body’s natural healing mechanisms may be able to repair damaged nerves, as long as the nerve is still alive.
