When the nerves in your feet are adversely affected by one or more of a variety of conditions, peripheral neuropathy can develop causing numbness, pain, and a tingling sensation that are often the first symptoms of diabetes.
In the case of a foot neuroma, this condition affects nerves that supply your toes, so you will often feel tingling and numbness in your toes and the ball of the foot.
Custom orthotic shoe inserts are excellent for treating the pain and discomfort of many common foot and ankle conditions, without the need for surgery.
There are many bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles that interact with the arch segments either directly or indirectly, giving multiple opportunities for arch pain to occur. Arch pain can often be treated easily with properly fitted footwear and custom orthotics, so see your foot doctor for relief.
