A neuroma is an uncomfortable condition that can make it difficult to move around. While custom orthotics may help minimize the pain caused by this condition, they are not a permanent solution. Surgical intervention is a treatment option – but not the only one available. If you’re struggling with this issue, non-surgical sclerosing injections may be worth considering. Get in touch with our team at LePoer Podiatry to learn more.
What Are Sclerosing Injections?
Sclerosing treatments are a conservative approach to treating neuromas and can drastically reduce the need for surgical intervention. These injections are made up of a cocktail of 0.5% Marcaine and 4% dehydrated alcohol. Studies have shown that this small amount of alcohol can shrink the targetted neuroma and offer excellent long-term relief from the condition.
How Do Sclerosing Injections Work?
These injections are performed in our office under ultrasound guidance to ensure precise administration. The majority of patients require a series of small injections given over the course of several months. Most patients begin to see improvement after 3-4 injections.
When Are These Injections Needed?
Sclerosing injections can be an excellent choice if you’re struggling with neuroma-related problems like pain. They can also be an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of spider and varicose veins. Whether you’re interested in a cosmetic treatment or a medical one, we welcome you to schedule an appointment to discuss this treatment further.
