Nerve Entrapment

Nerve entrapment gives Ogden Clinic patients a distinct sensation: it’s a localized tingling, numbing, or burning feeling in the feet or ankles. Sometimes people experience nerve entrapment during high-impact activities such as running, but it can also occur while standing or even without any weight bearing on the foot. In any case, sufferers of tingling and numbness in the feet should be evaluated by an Ogden Clinic podiatrist if they experience nerve entrapment.

After a clinical evaluation for tingling and numbness in the feet, your Ogden Clinic foot and ankle doctor may immobilize the foot if weight bearing causes pain. Physical therapy and cryotherapy are effective options to relieve nerve entrapment, although injection with a sclerosing agent or surgery may be necessary to decompress the nerve.
