Needle aponeurotomy on a toe band

Found a physician willing to do an NA on a band running along side of my right big toe. The band stiffens the toe and makes walking painful. The same physician just did a NA on a homologous band on the right thumb. Anyone on the forum have any experience with NA on the toes? If so, I'm interested to hear of your experience.

Re: Needle aponeurotomy on a toe band

richardt ; I have no knowledge of NA procedures on the toes but very interested to see if it works. I have a troublesome LD lump forming behind my left toes and I have a sense that I will not be able to ignore it for long. If you get the procedure done please let us know how it turns out.

Interesting. Never heard of that before. Lots of questions Is it a Dupuytren's-like collagen cord or something else? Running alongside or underneath the toe? Chance of a photo. Do you have Ledderhose in the soles? How did the thumb procedure turn-out? Sounds like you have trust in this physician. Sorry I cant help but best wishes.

Re: Needle aponeurotomy on a toe band

Guys; I have just returned from Paris having had NA on my right then left hand two weeks apart with very good results.

While there I took the opportunity to discuss the LD like formation that is growing behind the toes on my left foot. Dr Manet had not seen this type of growth before but it turns out that she has done many NA procedures for LD and says that it can be very effective. My understanding is that she uses a procedure that involves a combination of NA and cortisone. On this trip she used this combination on nodules in the web and thumb of my left hand with very encouraging results.

Dr Manet wants to do some research on the location of my current problem on my foot and I will probably get an MRI done to confirm that it is LD. If so I will go back to see DR Manet for treatment when in France later next year.
