Suggest treatment for pinched nerve in foot after an injury

Hi thanks for taking time to share.
I have a pinched nerve in my foot following an injury/scar. the sensation is similar to how mortons nueroma is descibed. is there a way for me to non surgically heal the nerve or to permanently numb or kill the nerve without damaging anything else?
thanks again

Hello Aether!
My name is Dr. Aida and I am glad to attend you on Healthcaremagic!

You should know that surgery is the best way to decompress the pinched nerve and help let it regenerate and also relieve the pain. Regarding other treatment options, there are only treatments for the pain, like pregabaline or gabapentine. These drugs can help relieve the pain, but not ta definite solution. The surgery in such case is really small and not painful. I would strongly encourage you to consult with a neurosurgeon on this issue.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Best regards!

.I have a newborn that was diagnosed with colic but after multiple GI tests and formula changes, I believe it is a pinched nerve that hurts him,thus the reason he cries. Even one GI specialist agreed that Garrett suffered nerve damage to his neck, that s why he pulls his head to the left...can you help me find an answer? The labor lasted for 18 hours, it was a vaginal delivery and I had to push for more than 4 hours to get him out...he was logged to one side, severe back labor and umbilical cord around his neck. He was also 2 weeks late. My first baby at 42. Thanks so much!
