switch_directions_-_foot_painAre you getting wary of using the same type of treatment day in and day out for your foot pain? It may be time for a permanent change. Especially if you’re currently using custom orthotics to help treat your foot pain, you should consider switching gears and learning about an exciting new treatment available that is a much better alternative. We know some people aren’t good with change, so we’ll ease into telling you about it, one step at a time (pun intended!).

You’re probably currently using custom orthotics (shoe inserts made especially for your unique foot structure) to treat your foot pain caused by:

  • An irregular walking pattern
  • Flat feet/fallen arches
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Over-pronation
  • Lack of support from shoes

Many of these issues are not only causing your foot pain, but also pain and secondary problems in other parts of your body like your knees, hips, back and joints.

While you might feel like custom orthotics are working just fine for you, they really are only a temporary fix and don’t address the actual problem. They only help manage the problem by absorbing shock, stabilizing the foot, taking pressure off sore spots, or adding extra support and protection.

What if you could actually correct the underlying problem causing your foot pain? You can with HyProCure®.

The underlying problem is misalignment caused by your ankle rolling inward too far. This then starts a painful reaction from your feet up through the musculoskeletal chain in your body.

HyProCure® is an outpatient procedure that places a titanium stent in the space between your ankle bone and heel bone to prevent the ankle from rolling in, decreasing excessive motion that is the root of your pain. The treatment uses a minimally invasive technique which means only a small incision is made in the foot or ankle and sewn right up with a few absorbable stitches. There is no screwing or drilling involved.

Although it’s extremely important to take it easy after the procedure – especially in the first 3 to 5 days so the joint space can heal – immediately following the procedure the ankle bone is stabilized and the foot structure already improved. You’ll be back in your own shoes needing just a Band-Aid in 3 to 5 days!

So what do you think?

Keep walking around with custom orthotic shoe inserts and get only immediate relief? Or get permanent relief from your foot pain as well as in other areas of your body by getting the HyProCure® procedure?

Custom orthotics are still a good option in certain instances, but HyProCure® is a better option to alleviate pain by aligning your feet and body. At Adler Footcare we use cutting edge treatments like HyProCure® to provide effective correction of the underlying problem, with the least amount of down time, least amount of complications, and get you functioning normally again as soon as possible.
