The Guinness Book of World Records states that Gabriel Antoniu Lavrincic (from Romania) received 22,018 letters over a lifetime, corresponding with children from the USSR between 1987 and 1991. And in the process, he learnt Russian from his pen friends.
Professor Rothbart receives letters from chronic pain sufferers all over the world! And in the process, he’s had the chance to get to know many people just like you.
In this article, Professor/Dr. Rothbart answers your questions on how to tell if the health literature that you read over the internet is valid, what causes a bone spur and how to know if you have the abnormal foot structure called PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity.
I Read So Much Health Information On the Internet, How Can I Know for Sure What Is True And What Is Quackery?
If you have tried traditional medicine and your GP’s advice hasn’t worked for you, it may be time to look elsewhere. Although the internet is crammed with health information some of it is not written in your best interest so you need to use discrimination and discernment.
I strongly suggest that you research the credentials, background and experience of the doctor you are considering. Read their work – does it make sense to you? What is their success rate in permanently eliminating or greatly reducing chronic muscle and joint pain?
In the end, if you want to get rid of your chronic pain, you have to be strong enough to look past what your well meaning family, friends and doctor have to say. Do your own research and make your own decision. Get the facts – first satisfy your mind – and then look to your own inner guidance.
What is a bone spur and what causes it?
A bone spur is a bony accretion (buildup) usually occurring at the site of the insertion of either a ligament or tendon.
Bone spurs are often caused by intermittent or continual irritation at the point where the ligament or tendon inserts into the bone.
Typically the irritation is the result of a stretching or tightening of the muscle, which pulls the tendon away from its attachment to the bone. So frequently, bone spurs are due to tight muscles.
One example is a plantar bone spur, which occurs where the long plantar ligament inserts into the bottom of the heel bone.
If your foot twists (because you have an abnormal foot structure) your plantar ligament is stretched. In time, it can start to tear away from its’ attachment to your heel bone. Your body responds (trying to repair this tear) by forming a bony bridge between the torn ligament and bone. This bridge is called a bone spur.
How do I know for sure that I have a PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity?
There are many body symptoms that could manifest as a result of having this severe abnormal foot structure, ranging from intense muscle pain, debilitating arthritis in any (or many) of your weight bearing joints, to stomach problems and headaches.
To find out if you may have a PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity, a good place to start is to fill out the Rothbarts Foot Questionnaire. If the results of this questionnaire indicate that you might have this foot structure, I suggest that you read my site Curing Chronic Pain and search under the category ‘Foot Structures‘ . Here you will find an abundance of information on the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity and how to handle the myriad of painful symptoms that it causes.
If you have more in depth questions on how to tell if the health literature that you read over the internet is valid, what causes a bone spur and how to know if you have the abnormal foot structure called PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity, be sure to read other articles on the Curing Chronic Pain website. Professor/Dr. Rothbart works hard to answer your questions and keep you informed on his latest research.

Reading the Curing Chronic Pain website will give you more information about the abnormal foot structures Professor/Dr. Rothbart discovered that cause many forms of chronic muscle and joint pain and help you determine whether an Initial Phone Consultation with him might be helpful.
For a more complete explanation of the Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity, read: Abnormal Foot Structures That Cause Chronic Pain.
To find out if you may have one of two common inherited, abnormal foot structures that cause chronic muscle and joint pain, take the Rothbarts Foot Questionnaire.
As you learn more about Professor/Dr. Rothbart’s innovative therapy, you may find that addressing and effectively treating your foot structure may be the missing link to ending your long time battle with unrelenting muscle and joint pain.
