What Causes Sharp Pain between Your Toes?

Dr. Harvey Danciger is a podiatrist and foot surgeon in Palm Desert, CA specializing in the foot and ankle

“Hi, my name is Brenda and I live in Palm Desert. I came to Dr. Danciger about three weeks ago. I was having pain in my right foot between my third and fourth toe – it was a sharp pain. When I put pressure on it, I’d get the feeling like a shock almost, and I wasn’t sure what was going on, so I came to him and he diagnosed it as – there was a nerve that was getting pinched when I put pressure on my foot. He took an x-ray and one of his suggestions was to try some laser treatment, which I agreed to.

I started the laser treatment and I started noticing some improvement probably after the second treatment. It was very easy, it only takes about 10 minutes, and it’s painless and so far, for me, it’s been working great. I’ve had six treatments now, and I would say the pain has really decreased a lot. I very rarely get that sharp shock of a pain anymore. I still feel a little rubbing sensation maybe once in a while, but for me, this has been great and I’m really glad that I made the decision to try the laser before doing anything else. It’s really great and I would recommend it and it’s really helped me a lot.”
