A new season is right around the corner and Daylight Savings Time is once again in affect. If you dread the warmer weather and longer days because it means open toe shoes and invitations to jog and therefore be on your feet longer than absolutely necessary, it’s time to put the spring back in your step and get treated for your foot pain. As you “spring forward” and lose an extra hour of sleep, getting treated for the foot problems causing you pain will make you feel like you gain that hour back.
First, it’s important to know why the following foot pain treatments will save you time so you can focus on doing what you most enjoy in life. They all use a minimally invasive technique, which means the treatments are done by making a very small incision the size of a pinprick. It causes significantly less trauma to the feet than traditional treatments, involves less bleeding, little to no amounts of anesthesia, less pain and minimal scarring, which leads to a faster recovery time.
The HyProCure® procedure places a titanium stent into the natural space between the ankle bone and heel bone to prevent the ankle bone from rolling in. It corrects the misalignment in your feet that many people don’t even realize is the source of their foot pain, and also secondarily treats pain in your knees, hips, back, and neck. This procedure will save you from many more hours of foot pain because it has a very high success rate and rarely needs to be replaced.
You will walk out of the office in a walking boot after having the procedure and be walking in your own shoes in 3 to 5 days. While it’s strongly recommended that you don’t participate in any running or jumping for 4 to 6 weeks in order to give the stent time to settle in its correct position, you’ll feel ready to!
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells haven’t yet determined their role in the body so they can turn into just about anything. For example, if you have old worn out cartilage, they are injected into the area feeling pain and will turn into new, healthy cartilage because they can stimulate and produce new cells. Stem cell therapy can save you time because it speeds healing twice as fast, reduces swelling, and minimizes pain after treatment.
Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment
Maybe you feel like you’ve wasted time and money trying to get rid of your toenail fungus. Laser treatment can solve your fungal problem once and for all. It works by shining a laser light beam onto the infected area, which breaks through the surface of the nail, and vaporizes the pathogens causing the infection. Once those are eliminated, the fungus can no longer grow. This treatment will save you time because it usually requires only three 30-minute in-office visits with minimal to no recovery time.
Don’t waste any more time trying ineffective treatments for your foot pain that only treat the symptoms, not the problems. Contact a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare to find which treatments are recommended for you. We believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment.
