foot problems affect rest of bodyLife is hard. Day in and day out you don’t just feel uncomfortable, your body is in pain and you don’t know why. It’s not just when you exercise or over exert yourself either; it’s just doing day-to-day activities like the scenarios below illustrate.

What do these scenarios have in common?

Your body aches. You dread spending another night behind the wheel driving that taxi cab. You took the extra hours because you really want to take the family on a nice vacation this year, but the extra hours seem to bring with them extra pain, especially in your lower back and neck. You buckle your seatbelt, turn on the radio, and start to accelerate, a painful night ahead.

You’ve had a busy day! Between bending over to help a toddler, carrying a baby on your hip, scrubbing the floor on your hands and knees, and being yanked all directions when taking the dog for a walk, you can’t shake the sharp pain in your knee and the somewhat disconcerting feeling that you’re off balance. But you don’t have time to worry about that – dinner’s ready!

You watch your son at his weekend soccer game and notice he seems off. He seems to be resisting the normal physical activity he waits for all week. He isn’t running as fast as he normally does and after practice he asks to be carried to the car. Something isn’t quite right if your little monster isn’t running everywhere he goes.

These scenarios all have one thing in common: pain. A second commonality you may not know is that each of these problems could be triggered by misaligned feet. Many people are unaware they have misaligned feet, which is why the problem often remains untreated. But pain in other areas of your body such as knees, back, hips, and neck can all be signs that your feet are misaligned.

What Causes Misaligned Feet?

The foot problems begin when your ankle bone moves off its normal position and makes unnatural contact with the bones on the back of the foot. This causes misalignment that creates an abnormal inward rotation of the ankle bone and outer rotation of the foot. Now there’s an imbalance of forces and weight distribution that causes a variety of problems in the human body while you’re standing, walking, and doing normal daily activities like those mentioned above. When you go from just feeling uncomfortable to being in pain you want to find the right solution to help.

How Does HyProCure® Work?

The HyProCure® procedure is done by making a small incision below the outer ankle bone and inserting a titanium stent in the space between the ankle bone and heel bone. The stent prevents the ankle bone from rolling inward, which in turn stops or significantly decreases the abnormal and excessive motion causing the feet to be out of alignment. It also doesn’t require you to be off your feet. Within 3 to 5 days of the procedure you’ll be walking in your own shoes, but it’s still important to take it easy for a while so the joint space has time to heal and the stent can settle into its correct position.
