Imagine sitting outside at a café on a busy street, sipping your café latte or whatever your drink of choice may be. As you watch the people walking by, you happen to notice that some of them look very uncomfortable, like something is causing them extreme foot pain. After more observation you notice the back of their feet. They seem to be rolled in toward the midline of the body and their arch seems to be collapsed in their shoes.
1. Abnormal Foot Motion
What you’re seeing is all the weight being put into the middle of their body instead of straight back on the heel. This causes back, hip and knee problems because their foot is rolling inward and not in its proper position.
Dr. Michael Graham, inventor of HyProCure®, uses a stent that keeps the foot from undergoing this kind of abnormal motion. The podiatrists at Adler Footcare consult regularly with Dr. Graham. A small incision is made in the foot and the device is inserted under local anesthesia. Once the stent is slipped into the foot, helping the foot resume normal position, you will no longer see the foot caving in like the people walking by on the street.
2. Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Losing feeling in the ball of the foot and heel could be a sign of tarsal tunnel syndrome. As your foot rolls in toward the inside of the ankle pressure is being put on the structures of the foot, strangling the posterior tibial nerve and causing the feeling and loss of sensation. HyProCure® will help put your foot and leg back in alignment. This will help your foot to not roll too far inward and relieve the pressure on the nerve.
3. Plantar Plate Tear
Foot pain from a plantar plate tear is felt on the bottom of your foot. The plantar plate is a thick ligament that runs along the first joint of each toe and protects the toes from pressure and injury due to overextension. When this tears a conservative treatment is orthotics. Stem cells can also help heal and reduce inflammation in the tissues, but HyProCure® can take stress off of the area. An accurate diagnosis by a podiatrist is required to determine the treatment that will be most effective.
The podiatrists at Adler Footcare believe in the effectiveness of HyProCure® so much that we even recommend it to our family members. In fact, Dr. Kulhan is a podiatrist at Adler Footcare and recently treated her sister using HyProCure®. Her sister had trouble with her hip and actually thought she might need a hip replacement. She couldn’t straighten her knee and could barely bend over. After getting the HyProCure® treatment she could straighten her knee right after her surgery and her body is in perfect alignment now allowing her to bend and touch the floor. She’s even ready to do the other foot!
