It’s important to follow doctor’s orders after any kind of treatment, but sometimes it can be tempting to overdo it and push yourself too far. This is especially the case with HyProCure® treatment for foot pain, a remarkable procedure that will have you almost forgetting about it because the treatment and recovery are nearly pain free.
First of all, the name HyProCure® doesn’t exactly explain what kind of a procedure it is. The treatment uses a minimally invasive technique, which means it’s done by making a very small incision that inserts a small titanium stent into the space between your ankle and heel bone. There is no drilling or screwing involved at all.
The purpose of HyProCure® treatment for foot pain is to prevent the ankle bone from rolling in, as well as stopping or significantly decreasing any abnormal, excessive motion. This is important because many people don’t realize this issue in your feet affects pain in other areas of your body, like back, hip and neck pain because your body is out of alignment.
Patients experience no pain during the actual procedure. It just requires a small incision, a couple of stitches, and a bandage. In fact, you’ll leave the office with a walking boot on and within 3 to 5 days you’ll be walking in your own shoes. That’s why it’s so easy to forget you even had the treatment.
A New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare will recommend no running or jumping for 4 to 6 weeks, so you’ll want to be sure to set a reminder on your phone to refrain from jumping up and down and running along the sidelines cheering at your child’s soccer game! And no, it doesn’t get you out of exercising – there are still things you can do! The worst case scenario is that you feel like you have a mild ankle sprain for a couple of days, but this is rare.
Because the HyProCure® treatment and recovery is so painless, it’s hard for people to remember to take it easy afterwards. They are feeling so great they tend to get right back into their daily activities and not give the stent enough time to adjust into its correct position and give the joint space time to heal. It’s also easy to forget you have had the treatment because it has such a high success rate and you never need it again. Of the over 100 patients treated by a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare, there hasn’t been one negative result.
Although you might forget you ever had HyProCure® treatment because it’s so successful, you do want to remember that the procedure can help foot pain caused by bunions, hammertoes, plantar fasciitis, over-pronation, and other foot problems.
