Comprehensive Foot Care From Our Specialist

If you are experiencing pain and the sensation of a small pebble or rock in the ball of your foot, you may have a neuroma. A neuroma forms when the tissue surrounding the nerves in your toes grows or thickens, causing pain and abnormal sensations in the feet. Our compassionate, experienced podiatry team offers effective treatment for neuromas in Pomona, CA, and the La Verne and Claremont, CA, areas, and can restore your pain-free lifestyle.

Causes & Risk Factors

Neuromas seem to be caused by irritation, injury, or excessive pressure on the nerves in the feet and toes. Other factors include:

  • Wearing high heels
  • Ill-fitting shoes
  • Playing high-impact sports, jogging, or running
  • Foot deformities such as bunions, hammertoes, or flat feet

Symptoms of Neuromas

You may experience the following symptoms from a neuroma:

  • Burning pain in the ball of your foot
  • The sensation that you have a pebble in your shoe
  • Numbness in your toes

Treating This Condition

Don’t ignore pain that lasts longer than a few days. Contact Dr. O'Neill if you experience persistent burning pain in the ball of your foot. He can diagnose and recommend conservative treatment options to relieve your pain.
