Scar Neuroma Injections
A neuroma injection is used to reduce pain in the foot, mainly in and around the joints of the toes. This is typically caused by degeneration or fibrosis in the digital nerve. An injection of local anesthetic mixed with cortisone is injected in the area. This breaks-up and thins the scar tissue envelope around the nerve and reduces inflammation. Discussing the benefits and risks with your doctor is strongly encouraged; results vary on a case-to-case basis.
