Do you miss having a normal life – being able to walk, exercise, work, and play without experiencing chronic foot pain? There is hope for a new normal – a life free of foot pain. You just have to be willing to take a step in the right direction.
First, you need to pinpoint the cause of your foot pain. You may be suffering from a common foot problem keeping you from doing what you need to do and what you love to do. Here are some examples.
If you have a bump on your big toe known as a bunion, the friction caused by it rubbing against your shoes can start to become excruciating. No longer is putting on a pair of peep-toe heels for a night out with the girls an option. Instead, you must settle for close-toed because your bunion looks so embarrassing. But those close-toed shoes hurt your toes, which are starting to curl and resemble a hammer. What the heck?
Taking a run through the park or chasing your kiddos around the playground is more of a forced activity instead of a fun outing because you dread the foot pain you inevitably know will be there, specifically in your arch and heel. This is probably caused by plantar fasciitis. Trying different shoes doesn’t help, and neither do those over-the-counter shoe inserts you’ve spent too much money on already.
You don’t even like shopping for shoes anymore – which used to be a favorite pastime – because you can never find the right pair to fit your feet the right way so that you can just walk from point A to point B. There is no shoe on the planet that can fix your foot problem; maybe help to manage it, but not fix it. What happened to your normal life?
Your foot pain may be more normal than you think
There is a treatment available that can give you your normalcy again. It’s called the HyProCure® device, a small titanium stent that is placed between your ankle bone and heel bone to correct misaligned feet. Yes, your whole life may feel misaligned because your feet are misaligned. This is actually an issue that nearly 40% of the population suffers from – they just don’t know it. But now you do, so how does it work?
The procedure uses a minimally invasive technique – meaning it’s done by making a very small incision – to place the stent, which stabilizes the ankle and keeps it from rolling inward, also known as over-pronation. It’s also an outpatient procedure, so not only will you be in and out in a matter of hours, but you’ll also be walking in your own closed shoes within days.
This means, you will be able to go out on the town and show off your favorite high-heeled peep toes. Within 4 to 6 weeks you’ll be running and playing again. Shoe shopping is no longer a thing of the past – which you may be grateful for, but your wallet not so much!
If you’re ready to find your new normal, schedule a free consultation with a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare to see if you’re a candidate for HyProCure®. We believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment.
