Walking through life with constant pain in the feet, legs, back, and hips can be excruciating. At first, you think it is because you have a bad pair of sneakers. So you go out and get a new pair with ample support and shock absorption and hope the pain goes away. Unfortunately, while the shoes are comfortable, the pain still lingers. No amount of stretching, exercise, and over the pain medicine is helping, and all your efforts feel fruitless. Finally, you decide to call your podiatrist to seek relief. You make an appointment, and within the next few days, you have your feet examined. The verdict? You are misaligned.
Many problems such as pain in the feet, back, legs, and hips can be due to misaligned feet. Other more severe problems that occur from misaligned feet are bunions, spurs, hammertoes, shin splints, and heel pain. If the alignment of your feet is off just slightly, it can throw your whole body out of whack. This is because, although the feet are at the bottom of the body, they are transferring shock, weight, and impact to the other body parts. These other body parts work in unison to get you mobile and on your way to enjoying everyday activities.
So, what do you do if your feet are misaligned? First, do not panic. The misalignment of feet can be cured with new innovative technology. One new advancement in the medical field is called HyProCure. HyProCure is an outpatient surgery that is typically done under local anesthesia. A HyProCure stent is placed within the natural space between the bones of the foot to stabilize and realign them. This allows a patient to get back into proper alignment almost immediately. A patient will have a recovery window of a few weeks’ time. After a follow-up appointment with their podiatrist, they can resume regular activity again, pain-free.
