Morton’s Neuroma

For over seven years, I suffered from a foot disorder called Morton’s Neuroma. The pain was diabilitating, growing from a sensation like a rock in my shoe to foot swelling and pain requiring bedrest. Unfortunately, I eventually required surgery on my foot to removed a nerve associated with the neuroma condition. I was informed by my surgeon that there was a chance that the nerve pain could possibly return. For the most part, the surgery was successful. Foot swelling and pain were reduced considerably, although I was by no means pain free, nor could I walk any distance.

The surgery was performed in 2007, but by 2009, the pain had not completely subsided, causing lost time from work, and a less than complete lifestyle. I could not walk any distance without foot pain, and I wanted my life back.

In January 2009, I decided to try acunpuncture to relieve, hopefully, some of my foot pain. My doctors informed me that because the problem was on the bottom of my foot, that acupuncture results would be iffy at best. I persisted on wanting to try something “else”, so I contacted Steve Phillips, the acupuncturist recommended to me by my doctor.

Steve sat down with me and had a lengthy discussion about my foot problem and what he could possibly do for me. I had six treatments over a six-week period, and I have been extremely pleased with the results of Steve’s treatments. I can honestly say that I was foot pain free for the first time since 2000. I have resumed regular walking routines and my daily life is not impeded with icepacks and medication any more. Since my initial treatment in 2009, I have had minor foot swelling incidences, but I have not suffered any foot pain since I started with Steve’s treatments.

I am now seeing Steve for another health issue I recently developed, and I have faith that he will be able to bring me back to full health once again
