Do you suffer from foot pain due to ankle sprains, bunions, flat feet, hammertoes, diabetes, heel spurs, corns, or athlete’s foot? If you’re looking for a podiatrist for any and all of those conditions, especially if you have a Midtown Manhattan neuroma, then it’s time you visit Tower Podiatry. Our approach revolves around paying attention to all the details of the body, not to just the problematic part.
Foot pain can be caused by many different things. Neuromas, for example, can be especially painful. A neuroma is a painful condition, also referred to as a “pinched nerve” or a nerve tumor. It is a benign growth of nerve tissue frequently found between the third and fourth toes. It brings on pain, a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot. The principal symptom associated with a neuroma is pain between the toes while walking. Those suffering from the condition often find relief by stopping their walk, taking off their shoe, and rubbing the affected area. At times, the patient will describe the pain as similar to having a stone in his or her shoe. Luckily, your Midtown Manhattan neuroma can be easily treated by our podiatrist. For those patients with painful conditions such as flat feet, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and neuromas, we offer custom orthotics. Our orthotics are the new generation of orthotics. They are shorter, narrower, and fully prescribed to your foot type and each foot and fit all shoe types. Our orthotics also improve balance and performance in addition to reducing stress up the posture to the lower back. Orthotic therapy works by aligning and supporting the foot or ankle, which can prevent, correct, or better accommodate deformities. This is done by slightly altering the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface. Furthermore, orthotics improve the overall function of the foot or ankle, further treating an abnormal or irregular walking pattern.
At Tower Podiatry, we view the person as a sum of all the body parts. For example, we will not treat just the foot as a foot problem but we will address other aspects of the body which have a correlation. This allows us to treat the whole body, not just the foot or the ankle. We can treat the problem at the core, not just take away the symptoms of it. By visiting one of our podiatrists for treatment of your Midtown Manhattan neuroma, you’ll be one step closer to having healthy and happy feet, ankles, and legs.
