How long does an irritated nerve root in the foot take to heal?
Asked 2 years ago
I am experiencing a really bad burning sensation on the top of my left foot and its slowly becoming unbearable. How long does it usually take an irratated nerve in the foot to heal? Are there any treatments I can use in the mean time for some relief?

The length of time it takes for your nerve to regenerate is determined by the severity of the injury and the type of injury you sustained. If your nerve is bruised or traumatized but not torn, it should heal in 6-12 weeks. After about 4 weeks of ‘rest' following your injury, a cut nerve will grow at a rate of 1mm per day. Treatments include therapy, Medication such as steroids Physical therapy and rehabilitation. Use ice in acute pain and orthotics during activity to support foot and facilitate healing process. Get well soon!
