what can be done for crushed foot numbness?

Numbness of foot: If you had a crushing injury to the foot and the nerve tissue was also crushed, the likelihood of return to normal sensation is low. However, I have found that high voltage electrical stimulation therapy can be helpful with nerve injury and degeneration.

Depends: Depends on the type of injury and how long ago. Sometimes time will cure it or it may require medication or surgery.
