Alcohol Injections for Nerve Desensitization for Athletics
I just saw a patient whom I am using a series of 5 injections spread over the next 5-6 weeks to desensitize a very sore Morton's Neuroma to enable him to compete at a national level in Sprint Cycling. I may get permanent nerve anesthesia, but I am hoping and should get over 1 year of significant less nerve pain. Several years ago this procedure worked well for him. Dr Rich Blake See my original post on injections for Morton's Neuromas which talks about cortisone vs alcohol injections.
