In brief: Few options
One to wear wide front shoes and metatarsal bar to left the pressure off the area.
The second to use anti-inflammatory medication to try get a relief, or have injection of steroid in the area. The last option is to surgery to take off that neroma.

In brief: Injection therapy
A neuroma can be alleved with wider shoes, offloading metatarsal pad, orthotics and antiinflammatories.
Often when these treatments fail, alcohol injection therapy is effective. A cortisone injection may also be used to treat a neuroma but should be limited to no more than 2 or 3 injections and should be weak in potency to avoid tissue atrophy to the interspace.

Neuroma pain responds well to wider shoes, ice, anti-inflammatories, and use of a metatarsal pad to offload the ball of the foot.

In brief: Foot pad
If your pain is due to a neuroma, a wide shoe box with firm sole and metatarsal pad is often the first line treatment.

In brief: Injections/surgery
Neuromas are inflammation and/or damage to the nerve.
If you treat the problem early, you have a better chance for success. Cortisone injections, nsaids, good shoes and supports can sometimes help. If your symptoms have been present for greater than 6 months, then conservative care is not as successful. Usually, surgical removal is the definitive treatment for chronic problems. Dr l.
