Did you know that your feet might be trying to tell you something? Your foot structure is important. About one quarter of the bones in your body are found in your feet. While you might not know what role each bone plays, you rely on them collectively every day to support the weight of your body doing your normal activities.
If you have consistent foot pain it could be a sign of a deeper issue – misaligned feet, a problem that 45% of people are actually unaware they have. What causes misaligned feet and how do you know if you have them?
When your foot rolls inward to absorb the shock from walking and running, it’s called pronation. This is a natural function of your foot; however when your ankle excessively rolls inward and your foot turns outward it’s called overpronation or hyperpronation. This is caused by the ankle bone slipping off of the heel bone, leading to misaligned feet.
Symptoms of Misaligned Feet
Beyond the foot pain you may be experiencing, there are some common issues that signal you have misaligned feet:
Plantar fasciitis – this condition occurs when the band of tissue connecting your heel bone to the base of your toes (called the plantar fascia) becomes inflamed.
Bunions – a bunion is a bone deformity caused by an enlargement of the big toe joint located at the base and side of the big toe, that creates a bump as the toe is pushed out of place.
Metatarsalgia – this is pain that is felt in the ball of the foot, on the bottom of the foot, or near the sole and is often felt more intensely during weight-bearing activities such as running, walking or standing.
Flat Feet – also known as fallen arches, flat feet are the result of a lower than normal arch due to a faulty foot structure.
Body pain – pain in your knees, hips an back can be caused by foot misalignment.
There is now a remarkable procedure available to correct foot misalignment.
HyProCure® Treatment for Foot Pain
If you think you have misaligned feet, it’s important to get them treated. In order to do so, you have to get to the root of the problem and realign the ankle and heel bone. The HyProCure® treatment does this by placing a titanium stent into the naturally occurring space between the ankle and heel bone. This stabilizes the bones and corrects the hyperpronation that leads to the issues causing foot pain.
