smart_young_boyYou’re no dummy – in fact, you were a good student in school, you have a higher education degree, and even a fair amount of common sense. You’re confident in your knowledge and abilities to problem solve, research, and make sound decisions. You consider yourself a competent individual. So why then, do you feel clueless about what is causing your foot pain? Every article you’ve read and every person you’ve talked with can’t give you a definitive answer. You’re not alone, and you’re not clueless, just unaware. There is an underlying problem that most people don’t even know they have.

The Problem

The problem causing your foot pain, and even secondary pain in other areas of your body, is misaligned feet. It’s estimated that nearly 45% of people are unaware they have misaligned feet. Misalignment in your feet is the result of an excessive inward rotation of the hindfoot that occurs when the ankle bone slips off of the heel bone. Another word for the extreme inward rotation that is occurring is over-pronation.

The Symptoms

So how do you know if you have misaligned feet? Your best option is to visit a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare to be evaluated, but there are some recognizable symptoms to look for in the form of common foot problems. These can be both visible and physical and include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Fallen Arches/Flat Feet
  • Heel Pain
  • Shin Splints
  • Knee Pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Pain while standing, walking, or running

While you’re not at all clueless about the foot pain itself and some of the problems caused by misalignment, you may not know that if you are experiencing one or more of the symptoms above you may be a candidate for HyProCure® at Adler Footcare of Greater New York, a HyProCure® Center of Excellence.

The Solution

HyProCure® is a revolutionary new procedure that places a titanium stent into the naturally occurring space between the ankle and heel bones. This stent prevents the ankle bone from rolling inward, decreasing the abnormal, excessive motion causing the misalignment in your feet. HyProCure® is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure with no screwing or drilling involved.

Patients are able to walk out of the office in a walking boot and are back in their own shoes within 3 to 5 days. The only thing you might be clueless about is remembering you ever had the treatment because you’re feeling so good so quickly.

Now that you aware of what could be causing your foot pain, it’s time to expand your knowledge even more and find out if you’re a candidate for HyProCure® by contacting a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare. We believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment.
