Reducing the pressure on the affected nerve will often permit good pain relief. Wide fitting shoes, insoles and physiotherapy can be very helpful. In case symptoms persist an ultrasound-guided injection around the thickened nerve and a possibly inflamed adjacent bursa will confirm the diagnosis and most often will eradicate the pain. For the few patients suffering from recurrent/persistent pain, surgery to remove the thickened inflamed nerve will be successful. After a short period of rest, patients can resume walking in wide fitting shoes and pain will settle accordingly.
