Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy Los Angeles, Mortons Neuroma Treatment Options

Constant foot pain due to a pinched or damaged nerve can curtail most of your activities, even the low impact ones. But don’t give up as there are non-surgical options such as cryotherapy.

 

Cryotherapy is a state-of-the-art treatment for neuroma, plantar fibroma, and certain plantar fascia cases. Through a rapid and limited deep-freezing of the affected area, the nerve or fascia pain may be resolved with a simple and comfortable office procedure. Until now, treatment options have not been effectively addressed. Patients typically relieve pain by stopping activity, removing their shoes, and rubbing the affected area with their hands. Thankfully, times have changed

How Does Cryotherapy Work?

Cryotherapy, or freezing of the nerve, works to stifle the nerve’s transmission signals, thus reducing pain. Most patients respond well to the ultrasound-guided treatment that is given in the office using only local anesthesia. Sometimes the procedure does not fully treat the nerve pain on the first attempt and a second treatment may be necessary. 

 

Another major upside to this procedure is we don’t “burn any bridges” with this procedure as we can easily remove the nerve if this procedure does not work. 

 

It is important to remember that at University Foot and Ankle Institute we always try to treat a condition with conservative care options such as insoles, injections, and physical therapy prior to trying any advanced treatment. We suggest that you don’t start with this procedure right away when 80% of the time more conservative treatments do the trick.
