nerve disordersDwyane Wade Miami Heat guard was sidelined recently due to a nerve irritation in his left foot. According to Wade the he initiated a warm-up when his foot gave him difficulties and then proceeded to the locker room. The trainers later officially diagnosed him with “foot drop,” which is a weakness or paralysis of the muscles that hoist the foot, according to USA Today.

"I started feeling a little something in my foot, getting a little numbness," Wade said. "But you don't think nothing of it. As time went on it started going up my leg a little bit, so the nerve going up my leg kind of shut down. Weirdest thing I've ever (felt). When I was out there and moved around and warmed up, I felt I couldn't feel my foot. So I didn't want to do anything."

Sensitivity or numbness in the foot or ankles is often caused by nerve damage. If you are suffering from ankle or foot pain, it is important that you seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Michael A. Stein of East Bay. Dr. Steincan examine your feet and determine the best treatment option.   

Nerve Disorders of the Foot and Ankle

There are two common nerve disorders of the foot and ankle; Interdigital Neuroma and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. The areas affected by these disorders include the hands, in addition to the feet, and both are typically caused by stress or genetics. Those sufferers of the disorders usually deal with serious pain and inflammation around the area.

Local inflammation in the nerves at the front of the foot is the typical cause of the serious pain mentioned earlier. Symptoms include the obvious; pain, but also include burning, and/or tingling sensations in the toes.

Doctors follow several steps when determining if a patient has either of the two disorders; Neuroma’s require radiographs, MRIs, and bone scans. Surgery, in this case, is a last resort option and only when the patient reports chronic and consistent pain.
