But there are two differences between Professor Rothbart and jolly ol’ Saint Nick: Except for the occasional overly anxious child, Santa Claus only receives letters around Christmas, and he doesn’t always write back!
But due to the huge number of chronic pain sufferers, who have not yet found relief, Professor Rothbart receives your questions throughout the year. And he always responds!
In this article, Professor/Dr. Rothbart answers your questions on why your doctors can’t eliminate your pain, what is the difference between the Rothbarts Foot and Morton’s Foot, how to know for sure that you have an inherited, abnormal foot structure and how to determine if Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy is right for you.
QUESTION: I Have Been To So Many Different Doctors, Why Can’t They Eliminate My Pain?
Pain is a symptom – not the problem. In order to eliminate your pain, you have to first determine the cause of the problem.
Once the cause is determined, you then must use a therapy that will effectively treat that cause.
Unfortunately, in today’s healthcare arena, many therapies treat pain (using pain medication, physical therapy, manipulation, etc), and not the cause of that pain. This is why so many therapies fail.
QUESTION: Is the Rothbarts Foot the same as the Morton’s Foot?
Not only are they different foot structures, but they are also treated differently.
The Morton’s Foot, also known as Morton’s Toe is relatively uncommon foot structure in which the big toe is more than 2mm shorter than the second toe. It is treated by using an extension pad extending from the 1st metatarsal head, past the big toe.
The Rothbarts Foot is a relatively common foot structure in which, when the foot is placed in its anatomical neutral (correct) position, the big toe is elevated and inverted relative to the second toe, but not shorter than the second toe. It is treated using Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy.
To more information, read my paper published in Podiatry Review, Morton’s Foot or Rothbarts Foot, Are they the same?
QUESTION: I Have Taken The Rothbarts Foot Questionnaire And Many Of My Answers Indicate That I May Have An Inherited, Abnormal Foot Structure. But, How Do I Know For Sure?
The purpose of the Rothbarts Foot Questionnaire is to give you an idea whether or not you may have an inherited, abnormal foot structure that is causing your chronic pain. But the only way to know for sure is through an Initial Phone Consultation with me, in which I ask in depth questions about your chronic pain problem.
To determine which of the two abnormal foot structures that you have, I then run a complex series of proprietary computer analyses. The results of my computer analyses give me the information that I need to effectively treat your specific foot structure and eliminate your chronic pain.
QUESTION:How can I find out if Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy is right for me?
You cannot be 100% sure of anything until you do it. But putting your toe in the water before jumping in gives you a pretty good idea of what’s in store.
