Many patients come to Podiatry Associates of Florida with excruciating foot pain and searching for answers. For many, Neuropathy is the umbrella of their diagnosis but we often have to identify the cause. Causes for neuropathy can include thyroid, chemotherapy, tarsal tunnel syndrome, idiopathic causes, vitamin deficiencies, back injuries and of course diabetes.
The podiatrists at Podiatry Associates of Florida will help you identify the root of the problem and more importantly the goal is to preserve your feet and improve your quality of life by reducing and eliminating the pain or even numbness. In general, through an evaluation by one of our podiatrists we can provide you with medical treatment options with oral pain medication or by improving the nerve health.
The pain associated with neuropathy can cause many patients to lose sleep, prohibit them from walking, exercising and can be so debilitating that it’s difficult to leave their homes. Whether the patient begins medication to treat neuropathy or we begin working to recover the nerve function, our podiatrists at Podiatry Associates of Florida are ready to help you reduce foot pain and become active once again.
