Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
|On July 21st, 2009, in my article entitled ‘Will Surgery Salvage Yao Ming’s Basketball Career?’ I made a prediction that Yao Ming’s basketball career would prematurely end due to his inherited abnormal foot structure, the Rothbarts Foot. I believe this common foot structure (which predisposes people to chronic muscle and joint pain) was the cause of Yao’s foot injury and resulting foot pain. In spite of all the aggressive therapy given him by a team of professionals, his injury would not heal. The following is an extract from my article:
‘The Houston Rockets are counting on an innovative and complicated surgical procedure to repair the hairline fracture in Yao Ming’s left foot. They hope it will create a base of support for his 7-foot, 6-inch frame that will withstand the unprecedented pounding Ming’s body takes every time he mounts the basketball court. However, privately the Houston officials have grave doubts that Ming will ever be sturdy enough to again play professional basketball.
This is truly a tragedy, for as the global game goes, Ming is basketball’s most important player since Michael Jordan. He is the reason that China has become enamored with the National Basketball Association. He is the reason why American players were treated like rock stars in the Beijing Olympics. He is regarded by many as the ‘Icon’ of professional basketball.
After watching a video and studying many photographs of Ming, I doubt he will ever recover from his reconstructive foot surgery unless they address the underlying cause that led to his debilitating foot injury, which I believe is a Primus Metatarsus Supinatus, known as Rothbarts Foot. Unfortunately, to date, the Houston Rocket’s management may be totally unaware of Ming’s embryological foot structure and the impact it has on his skeletal framework. And Ming is just another of a long list of elite professional players whose careers have been cut short or severely compromised by the apparent foot structures they were born with: Bill Walton, Micky Mantle and Tiger Woods just to name a few.
Let’s hope that Ming will prove to be the exception and that he will overcome the destructive forces generated from his feet. But the smart money is betting against this. And without addressing his apparent Rothbarts Foot, one of the greatest players in NBA’s history will abruptly and prematurely leave the sport in his prime. And what a needless shame that will be!’
Since the writing of this article in 2009, Yao Ming has retired from the world of basketball due to his left foot injury that never healed.
The Common Denominator Between Yao Ming’s Chronic Foot Pain and Rafael Nadal’s Knee Problem
Yao Ming shares something in common with Rafael Nadal – I believe they both have an inherited abnormal foot structure. I believe that Yao has a Rothbarts Foot and Rafael has a PreClincial Clubfoot Deformity. Both of these foot structures can create chronic muscle and joint pain throughout the body, but the weak link in the individual’s skeletal system is typically where the pain first develops. With Yao, his foot was the weak link, which resulted in his injury and lead to chronic foot pain. With Nadal, the weak link is his knee, which is creating his knee problem.
Both the Rothbarts Foot and the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity can be effectively treated. I’ve worked with athletes in various sports who have these abnormal foot structures and have achieved great results. Basically, when you eliminate the cause of the problem, the athlete can again perform to his full innate ability. Let’s hope that Nadal’s PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity is treated before his abnormal foot structure forces him into a premature retirement.
