Neuromas are very simple to cure with sclerosing injections which are anhydrous alcohol injections 4-7 in series and no more neuroma pain 99 percent effective no surgery is needed for neuromas any longer.

Sandals : Try and get a sandal that has a " cookie " or metatarsal pad that will splay the metatarsals wider and take pressure off the neuroma . A cookie looks like a " bump " on the surface.

I like : Dehydrated alcohol injections. I f nd they work very well. Some docs inject steroids. If all else fails they can always be excised. Surgery may include cutting he deep transverse metatarsal ligament or removing the neuroma itself.
