: Does anyone have information about the effectiveness of accupuncture with foot neuromas? I am trying to avoid steroid shots or surgery.
Rita, I don't know if accupuncture relieves the pain of neuroma but I do have first hand experience with the surgery ( on both feet). For years I endured the pain of the neuroma and tried many approaches to relieving it but to no avail. Then I decided to opt for the surgery and have been PAIN FREE since.The thing I regret is that I waited so long before having it done. If you ever decide to go for the surgery, check with an orthopedic surgeon. Good luck to you.
