I am still in pain after 2 failed Morton's neuroma surgeries, I have read the breaking up scar tissue might help the pain, because the severed nerves have possible regenerated into scar tissue causing pain,, have you heard of ART active release therapy? and who does this? I am guessing a PT? if, not, what do you recommend to break up scar tissue, and do you know of anyone who has had sucess ( to get out of pain) by using this method?

Person's Age: 48
2 surgeries and deep massage over scars, seem to help,

Since this is a surgical failure, medications such as Neurontin my be helpful . After surgery a patient may get a chronically irritated nerve, This is called Reflex sympathetic dystrophy. The could be the problem. You should see a anathesiologist that deals with pain. He will probably do several nerve blocks in the area. If this works, but does not last for a long period of time, the nerve can be destroyed permanently with ultrasound I would not have any more surgeries at this time. It may make the pain much worst.DR S
