    I’m sorry that this may not be the place the post this contradictory statement because of the advice of surgery for a Neuroma but since I wanted to learn what sites are listed for healing a neuroma, this was at the top.

    I healed my own Neuroma and no I’m not going to sell you anything for what I feel is valuable advice in curing a neuroma. Here it goes and this is what I did.

    1. I would habitually apply water pressure from my tub on the affected area for at least 10 minutes every 2-3 days. THe stronger the pressure of the water the better I would assume and with that maybe a lower time applied. It’s your call how long you keep your neuroma (under the foot) area in the water.

    2. I began to walk barefoot around the house and sometimes with just socks on. I learned through research that many people who walk barefoot don’t suffer from many of the ailments we do here in America because of the adverse effect of soles to our feet, i.e, shin splints, neuroma, etc…

    3. I would loosen all my shoes so that no pressure would press against the neuroma. Do not wear tight fitting shoes/sneakers, ever! It will make the neuroma worse.

    4. Whenever I had to wear shoes, in addition to the shoe where the neuroma was, would be extremely loose, I’d wear one of the GEL Patch slip ons that you can slip on your feet. I don’t know the name of it but it has a gel area that goes under the neuroma area of your foot and you can wear it with shoes. It’s not that inconvenient and the better than most contraptions that are being sold.

    I hope this helps and if it does I’d be glad to know that it worked for you.
