Neuritis can occur anywhere in the body. Podiatrists can treat neuritis in your foot – it can occur in your heel, toes, and metatarsal (ball of foot) area. Neuritis is an inflammation of the nerves in your foot. This inflammation can have many possble causes, such as an injury, an infection, a vitamin deficiency, or damage to the vessels that supply blood to the nerve. A biomechanical problem can put pressure on or damage a nerve. The symptoms can be similar to those of peripheral neuropathy; tingling, burning “pins and needles” pain, and even numbness. Treatment of neuritis starts with figuring out what the exact cause of your pain is. Treatment options can include custom orthotics, diet changes/supplements, medication, and cortisone injections.
