Can ibuprofen stop a neuroma from hurting?

Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. It is very effective in relieving many different kinds of symptoms. You have substances in your body that are released in response to injury and illness. A medication such as ibuprofen blocks those substances, which helps to reduce pain and swelling.

A neuroma occurs when the tissue surrounding one of the nerves that leads to your toes becomes thickened and inflamed. The properties in ibuprofen can help ease the pain associated with a neuroma. It may help with the inflammation and discomfort but may only be a temporary solution. It is important if you have a neuroma, to have Dr. Danciger advise on the best course of treatment to ensure the health of your feet long term.
