    Shockwave Therapy for Scar Tissue/Neuromas

    My last neuroma surgery was done 6 years ago under the foot (I had several on top too years ago) - and now the neuroma is back and there is a lot of scar tissue inside they think.

    Thanks

    They should not come back if properly excised. Is this a Foot & Ankle Board certified ortho? I wouldn't let anyone else do that work. Mine was removed by about 15 years ago and no problems. As for the scar tissue, u/s can help.

    Thanks. What is u/s? I've actually had a total of 8 neuroma surgeries since the early 90's - once they cut a nerve it tends to grow back unless they tucked it into a muscle which mine never were. This last one was done under the foot and now 6 years later is very bad. I've seen orthopedics and also licensed foot and ankle doctors - shockwave came up as a suggestion. Thanks

    Ultrasound...u/s...they move a wand over the area to break up inflammation/scar tissue. And yes, they should tuck it in the muscle. Sorry they didn't do that for yours.
