Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
What does this mean to you, the chronic pain sufferer? Because most chronic muscle and joint pain is the result of having an abnormal foot structure – either the Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity – when these foot structures are not effectively treated, it can unlevel your jaw (specifically, the position of your maxilla). When you unlevel the maxilla, the result is a change in the contact points between your upper and lower teeth. This can create dire consequences throughout your body.
In detail, it happens like this:
There are millions of nerve endings (called mechanical receptors) in your skin that cover the entire surface of the bottom of your feet and are stimulated by touch. As you stand or walk, the mechanical receptors that touch the ground are stimulated. When a group of mechanical receptors are stimulated, they form a ‘pattern of stimulation’. Each pattern of stimulation sends signals to your cerebellum (brain). From the signals that that it receives, the brain automatically adjusts your posture.
If you have an abnormal foot structure – such as the Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity – faulty signals are sent to your brain. Your brain responds by distorting your posture. After a period of time this poor posture creates chronic muscle and joint pain and other unpleasant symptoms in your body.
In the mouth, something similar transpires. When the upper and lower teeth come together, ‘patterns of contact’ are formed and sent to the cerebellum. Just like signals from the feet, the cerebellum also acts on signals sent from the teeth and makes a postural adjustment.
If the patterns of contact are distorted, faulty signals are sent to your brain. Your brain responds by distorting your posture. Some of the postural problems created by a bad bite (malocclusion) are neck pain and/or a pelvis locked in a forward position.
My published radiographic research study has proven that the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity unlevels the cranial bones (the maxilla being one of them). But exactly how this happens (the pathomechanics) still needs to be clarified.
The Result – Chronic Pain Coming From Both Your Feet And Jaw
When you have postural distortions coming from both your feet and jaw, this further complicates your doctor’s job of getting you out of chronic pain. Not only does he/she need to handle the postural distortions stemming from your abnormal foot structure, but also the malalignment in your bite.
Sometimes these distortions created by your bite stay linked to your feet and sometimes they don’t (they may take on a life of their own). For example; When I treat a patient who has both an abnormal foot structure and a malocclusion; often the positon of their maxilla (bite) improves, but sometimes it doesn’t.
When it doesn’t, it is because that they are no longer linked. That is; the malalignment in the teeth no longer responds to the signals coming from the feet. When this happens, the only thing that can be done is to go to dentist for a night guard. If this doesn’t work, you may need to have orthodontic intervention. Using braces, the orthodontist corrects your bite, which in turn corrects your posture (only the postural distortions that were coming from the teeth).
Needless to say, orthodontic work is quite expensive. So, it’s best to handle the problem coming from your feet (your abnormal foot structure) before it starts creating problems in your jaw.
