You might have a problem with your feet and you don’t even know it exists. Approximately 45% of the population suffers from this problem and has no idea. Its symptoms are widely felt, but it’s often misdiagnosed or overlooked altogether. In order to find the right solution, you need to recognize the symptoms and identify the root problem.
If you’re experiencing chronic foot pain or body pain, your feet are trying to tell you something. Do you have any of the symptoms or issues below?
Bunions – a bony bump, usually on the big toe, caused by an enlargement of the toe joint that pushes the toe out of place.
Flat Feet – a lower than normal arch, usually due to a faulty foot structure.
Metatarsalgia – pain in the ball of the foot, on the bottom of the foot, or near the sole, especially during weight bearing activities.
Over pronation – an excessive inward rotation of the foot.
Plantar fasciitis – inflammation of the band of tissue connecting the heel bone to the base of the toes.
Body pain – pain in your knees, hips, back, and neck could all be directly related to a problem in your feet.
If you have any of the issues above or have chronic foot and body pain, your problem could be misaligned feet.
Misaligned feet are caused by the ankle bone slipping off of the heel bone. Your foot naturally rolls inward to absorb the shock from walking and running. This is called pronation. When your ankle rolls inward too much and your foot turns outward it’s called over pronation. This excessive inward rotation, caused by the ankle bone slipping off the heel bone, is not only the root cause of your foot pain but also your body pain.
Foot misalignment causes a chain reaction in your body because as over pronation occurs:
- The knees may turn in
- Then the hips may turn in
- Then the pelvis tilts
- Then the back curves
Do you think you have misaligned feet? You can find out for sure by scheduling a foot assessment with a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare. They can also tell you about the remarkable treatment to correct misaligned feet.
The HyProCure® procedure places a small titanium stent into the naturally occurring space between your ankle bone and heel bone to stabilize the ankle instantly and keep it from excessively rolling inward. It’s a quick and simple outpatient procedure that uses a minimally invasive technique. This means it’s performed by making a very small incision.
- A small incision is made below the outer ankle to insert the HyProCure® stent
- The surgeon determines which size stent will give the best correction
- The stent is placed in the joint space
- The incision is closed with (usually) a single absorbable stitch
- Small bandage is applied to the foot
The procedure is nearly pain-free and you’re able to walk at all times during healing. You’ll leave the office in a walking boot and be back in your own shoes within 3 to 5 days. HyProCure® can be used successfully for children as young as age 7 and adults of all ages. In the hands of the Master HyProCure surgeons at Adler Footcare the stent should last a lifetime.
