Are you suffering from unexplained, unrelenting shocking, burning, or shooting pain in your feet and ankles?
Have you already seen a doctor—or even several doctors—who either haven’t been able to provide you with an answer, or gave you recommendations that just didn’t work?
If this sounds familiar, there’s a strong possibility that you have a problem with the nerves in your feet and ankles. And if you do, it’s critical that you get your nerves evaluated by an extremity nerve specialist right away. Treatment delays could lead to permanent consequences.
Dr. Peyman Elison at Fixing Feet Institute is the Phoenix area’s leading expert in peripheral neuropathy and extremity nerve conditions. If you think there’s even a possibility you might be suffering from damaged nerves in your feet or ankles, please call us today—even if you’ve already seen other specialists. We may be able to help!
Extremity Nerve Conditions Are Extremely Serious
Nerve problems in the feet and ankles can be painful, frustrating, and in some cases even debilitating.
If your nerve pain is severe, you may experience burning, shocking, and shooting sensations every day, which can only be partially controlled through medications.
If your nerves become completely destroyed, you can lose all sensation entirely—which can significantly increase your risk of ulcers and infections, and rob you of things like your balance or even your ability to drive.
The one advantage you have, potentially, is time. Nerve problems tend to develop gradually over months or even years. If you begin to suspect a nerve issue, it’s imperative to seek our help as soon as possible. In most cases, mild or even moderate neuropathy can be successfully managed, and nerve function significantly restored. But if your nerve problem is more advanced, there’s a greater risk that the damage may not be fully reversible.
Nerve Problems Often Go Undetected or Misdiagnosed
This is an unfortunate reality, and one we see far too often.
The reason you may have gone to 3, 4, or even 5 or more doctors without finding a cure or proper explanation for your pain isn’t necessarily because those doctors were incompetent. Most likely they were all extremely well trained and dedicated professionals.
But no doctor is an expert in every subfield of medicine, and unfortunately, peripheral nerve experts are in very short supply nationwide.
Confounding the issue, nerve issues such as nerve compression can often produce very similar symptoms to more well-known conditions, like plantar fasciitis. If a doctor is not a nerve specialist, and you describe your nerve compression symptoms to that doctor, they may not suspect or consider that your pain is nerve-related.
Inevitably, this leads to the doctor prescribing a number of treatment remedies that will probably not fully work—because they aren’t designed to treat the true cause of your pain. The mild improvement you might feel from new shoes or specific stretches will not last, and your pain will only continue its upward trajectory.
Why You Should Trust Dr. Peyman Elison For Your Nerve Pain
Dr. Elison is one of the nation’s leading extremity nerve experts, with more firsthand experience in researching and treating these conditions than any physician in the area.
He is a member, officer, and the immediate past president of the Association for Extremity Nerve Surgeons (AENS), an organization dedicated to not only studying peripheral nerve conditions and developing new treatments, but also increasing awareness of extremity nerve conditions among the wider medical community. They instruct the next generation of peripheral nerve experts and surgeons so that more patients in need have access to critically necessary care.
Dr. Elison is one of fewer than 100 physicians nationwide (and the only one currently practicing in Arizona) fully certified and fellowship-trained in advanced Dellon Institute techniques for peripheral nerve decompression surgery. In fact, he has served as an instructor in these techniques at AENS training courses and symposiums for more than 10 years, and has worked tirelessly to train other doctors with the knowledge and skills they need to diagnose and treat these conditions.
