Are there a million reasons not to have foot surgery? Probably not. But there’s one very good reason that’s worth a million! Listen carefully, this is it:
If you have an abnormal foot structure that is causing your foot pain – be it from bunions, plantar fasciitis, calluses, corns, fungal nails, heel or toe spurs or other foot problems – foot surgery won’t work.
Foot surgery might be a temporary fix (or it may not help at all) and foot surgery is certainly not a permanent solution. The reason being is that the problem can (and often does) return as the cause of the foot problem was not handled in the surgical procedure.
As you know, bunions, plantar fasciitis, calluses, corns, fungal nails, heel and toe spurs can really hurt. Foot surgery is no walk in the park either. And let’s not forget the often long and painful recovery period. All in all, the whole process is quite miserable. But the real clincher is that if you have an abnormal foot structure at the root of your foot problem, there’s no point in going through a surgical procedure because the after effect is bound to be a return of your problem – and probably an increase in your foot pain.
If not foot surgery, what is a solution to bunions, plantar fasciitis, heel or toe spurs? A solution would be:
1. Find a treatment that in itself is not invasive and doesn’t cause more foot pain than you started with.
2. Make sure that this treatment effectively treats the source of the pain – your abnormal foot structure.
There are many foot treatments that qualify for number 1 above, including: Epsom salt whirl pool therapy, ultra sound, dermal abrasion (scraping) of calluses and corns, grinding off fungal nails, padding your foot with metatarsal pads, using arch supports and low dye taping to make your feet more comfortable.
Foot treatments that qualify for number 2 above narrows down the field. If you have an abnormal foot structure, there’s only one therapy that effectively treats the source of your foot pain. It’s called Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy.
The All Important Reason Not To Have Foot Surgery
The short and sweet of it is, is that if you have an abnormal foot structure, foot surgery won’t work. That’s a good reason (and certainly worth a million) if there ever was one.
Reading the Curing Chronic Pain website will give you more information about the abnormal foot structures I discovered that cause many forms of chronic muscle and joint pain and help you determine whether an Initial Phone Consultation with me might be helpful.
