What is Foot Neuropathy?

Foot neuropathy is nerve damage in the feet. Neuropathy refers to pain disorders that impact the nerves. Foot neuropathy falls under the category of peripheral neuropathy, which includes pain disorders that affect any of the peripheral nerves.

Symptoms of Foot Neuropathy


Foot neuropathy can encompass a wide range of specific conditions. Causes of neuropathy include nerve damage from injury, autoimmune diseases like diabetes, infections, tumors and more. Different causes and various types of nerve damage each result in their own symptoms.

Symptoms of foot neuropathy can include:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Weakness or lack of coordination
  • Burning sensation or sharp pain
  • Throbbing or stabbing pain

Because of the wide range of symptoms and causes, diagnosing foot neuropathy can be a long process involving multiple types of tests. These tests can include blood tests to identify conditions like diabetes and vitamin deficiencies, imaging tests to see any irregularities in the bones, nerve function tests and more.

Physical exams will also allow your doctor to observe reflexes, muscle strength, coordination and other important factors. All of this information together can help doctors determine the exact cause of the foot neuropathy and develop the best treatment plan to address it.

Typical Foot Neuropathy Treatment in Richmond


The causes for foot neuropathy vary greatly, and so do foot neuropathy treatment options. One common route for addressing foot neuropathy symptoms is to prescribe or recommend medication. Sometimes, over-the-counter pain relievers like NSAIDs may be used to address more mild symptoms, or prescription pain medications will be prescribed if symptoms are particularly severe.

Medications

Other medications, such as anti-seizure medications and antidepressants, may be prescribed for certain causes of neuropathy. In some cases, topical treatments can help if symptoms involve a burning sensation. Unfortunately, relying on medication as the only form of treatment fails to address the underlying cause and problems at hand. This means that the condition will not improve — the medication is only working to cover up symptoms. Many people struggling with foot neuropathy do not want to sign on for a lifetime of taking medication and dealing with unpredictable side effects and other complications.

Therapy

Aside from medication, other common therapies include physical therapy and surgery. While these treatments do aim to address the root of the problem, they also come with their own concerns and may not work to address all symptoms. For example, physical therapy can be extremely helpful for those experiencing muscle weakness as a symptom of foot neuropathy. On the other hand, if your primary symptom is a burning or tingling sensation, physical therapy may not address the issue.

Surgery

Finally, in some cases, surgery may be recommended as a treatment option for foot neuropathy. In the case of some common causes of foot neuropathy, surgery can be used to reduce pressure on nerves. However, many people are understandably hesitant to undergo an invasive surgery and face the associated risks and recovery times.
