A person complains about shooting, burning or tingling pain in the foot or ankle, it can mean a nerve is pinched or “entrapped” as a result of scar tissue strangling the nerve from a trauma or injury. Podiatrist can properly diagnose foot pain and determine if the patient is indeed suffering from nerve pain or if it is coming from other sources.
