Tingle Toes?

Foot numbness is most often caused by a compressed nerve. The nerves that cause sensation in your foot and ankle can get trapped between bones or soft tissue. Because the nerve is compressed, it’s unable to send the correct signals to your brain from your skin and soft tissue. Nerve compression can make your foot feel like it’s on “pins and needles,” or it can make your foot completely lose sensation.

Advice That Helps

Dr PeteKC North Spine and Joint North
Numb feet can be as simple as improper footwear or as bad as diabetic neuropathy. Be sure that you are both getting proper advice on your footwear and staying up to date on your health with your doctor.
Dr LaurenKC North Spine and Joint
Shoes are a necessary part of life, but they can make the foot muscles “lazy” and this can lead to odd symptoms in the feet, like burning, tingling, or numbness. Waking up the foot muscles with barefoot balance exercises, rolling a small ball on the bottom of the foot, and various toe exercises can help normalize the sensations in your feet.
Dr JustinKC North Spine And Joint
One of the big nerves that goes down to your feet travels underneath your calves and can be aggravated by tight calves. So making sure to keep good calf flexibility by stretching can help improve and prevent numbness and tingling in the feet.
Dr JordanKC North Spine And Joint
Improper length of shoe or improper width of shoe can stress the foot in such a way as to cause numbness in the feet or toes. Getting proper advice on athletic footwear is important, but also pay attention if your work or casual shoes are making your symptoms worse.
