What common nerve conditions affect the foot and ankle?

There are several common foot nerve conditions we treat for patients, including neuromas, neuropathy, foot drop, and peroneal nerve dysfunction. Some of the symptoms to know for these conditions include physical sensations of tingling, burning, or pain. When nerves are damaged, they can also become numb and are unable to send any signals to the brain. With foot drop and peroneal nerve dysfunction, there are often functional symptoms, such as inability to hold the affected foot up and the toes dragging while walking.

No matter which of these common nerve conditions are affecting your lower limbs, you can find the treatment you need at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists. We are staffed with highly-educated, skilled, and experienced foot doctors who are ready to provide exceptional foot care services for you. Whether you’re in West Lake Hills, the North Loop, or any surrounding areas, contact us today by calling (512) 328-8900 and we can assist you in scheduling an appointment.  You can also request an appointment online.
