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
