Changes in footwear
Avoid high heels or tight shoes. Wear wider shoes with lower heels and a soft sole. This helps to decrease compression of the nerve.
Custom shoe inserts and pads may help relieve irritation by lifting and separating the bones, reducing the pressure on the nerve.
An initial Vasyli orthotic can be fitted at MOG, however a custom made orthotic by a Podiatrist may be required.
An injection of a corticosteroid will reduce the swelling and inflammation of the nerve, which should provide relief.
