Bramson Treats Morton’s Neuroma with Prolotherapy and Prolozone

Apr 25, 2015 11:13PM

Morton’s neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. The condition may feel as if you are standing on a pebble in your shoe or on a fold in your sock. Morton’s neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in your foot. Your toes also may sting, burn or feel numb. Damaged and stretched out ligaments in the foot and toes can cause the nerves to be irritated and inflamed.

Dr. Ronald Bramson, a leading regenerative physician and podiatrist who practices at Gecko Joint and Spine, uses prolotherapy to strengthen and tighten the ligaments back to their normal length. Then prolozone, an activated oxygen gas (ozone) is injected around the nerves in the foot. The combination can heal the nerve as well as strengthen the area to give a long term correction to the problem, versus steroid injection which will only give temporary relief for the inflammation.

Dr. Bramson offers a free consultation on this and many other orthopedic concerns using regenerative therapies including stem cells, PRP and prolotherpy. You are invited attend his lecture May 5 and 19 at 6 p.m. to explore this new treatment option.

Location: Gecko Joint and Spine, 2033 Wood Street #210, Sarasota. For more information, phone 941-330-8553 or visit GeckoJointandSpine.com.
