Custom Orthotics - Chiropodist in Sarnia, London and Chatham, ON Chiropodist Jamie Maczko of Mazcko Chiropody and Orthotic Centre discusses how custom orthotics can help correct biomechanical problems of the foot to alleviate heel pain and other foot problems. *******www.maczkochiropody**** Chiropody and Orthotics Written on December 28th, 2010 Feet are an amazing complex structure containing one quarter of the body’s bones, held together with ligaments, muscles, tendons and fascia. Each day they carry you smoothly and efficiently through thousands of steps. Sometimes biomechanical problems develop interrupting smooth, pain free gait (walking). Careful examination of your feet and gait, by a Chiropodist, is an essential step in correctly addressing your foot problems. Biomechanical problems can be simply due to body structure or related to a medical condition. In order to address a biomechanical problem, your chiropodist may prescribe custom orthotics. Custom orthotics alter the way your feet interact with the ground. Everyone’s feet, legs, hips and biomechanics are unique. Improper foot alignment or skeletal imbalances can cause pain throughout your body by overstressing muscles, tendons, bones and joints. As you walk, custom orthotics help to control your foot motion and weight distribution. They work to eliminate the specific causes of your pain, not just the symptoms. Chiropodists, Podiatrists and Orthotists are the only professions in Ontario who are licensed to prescribe, manufacture and dispense custom orthotics. Many other paramedical professions provide orthotics or arch supports but their educational background and biomechanical knowledge does not allow them to be licensed in this province. When you walk, the first part of your foot to hit the ground is the outer edge of your heel, and then your foot pronates (rolls inwards). This is good, up to a point. Pronation ”unlocks” the foot, allowing it to absorb the shock of your body hitting the ground. Too little pronation sends the shock of landing up your leg and can result in shin splints, knee, hip and/or back pain. Too much supination (the foot rolls on its outside edge too far when landing on the ground during heel strike) and you will not push off your body weight properly, leading to callus buildup or corns, often under your little toe. Problems can present at any stage of the walking process, and custom prescribed orthotics address your specific problem. Therefore, careful examination of your feet and gait by a chiropodist is essential. No orthotic can be truly considered custom without a thorough biomechanical examination, gait analysis and a three dimensional volumetric casting of the feet. Orthotics come in a variety of materials, ranging from rigid plastics to soft foams. Soft orthotics tend to provide cushioning and protection while rigid orthotics provide biomechanical control. Most adults require some control and cushioning combined. While prescribing your orthotics the chiropodist will endeavor to choose the proper choices of materials to fit your specific needs to provide maximum support and comfort. Rigid orthotics are made from strong thermal plastics or graphite materials. They provide maximum control to improve the foots function (performance). They are sometimes used for growing children to control/ resolve biomechanical issues. Semi-rigid orthotics control foot movement and provide some shock absorption. They use flexible plastics and help to reduce pain due to over used strained soft tissues in the feet and legs. Soft orthotics cushion the feet when standing/ walking, but do little to control the foot biomechanics. Accommodative orthotics protect the feet form the stresses of standing / walking. They often incorporate foams or cork material and may have indentations or raised area to take pressure off of painful areas of the feet.

Heel Pain Treatment - Chiropodist in Sarnia, London and Chatham, ON Chiropodist Jamie Maczko of Mazcko Chiropody and Orthotic discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Heel Pain. *******www.maczkochiropody**** Painful Heels Heels may become painful for numerous reasons. Shoes that are worn out or poorly fitted are often the main cause of blisters on the back of the heel, or bursitis at the attachment of the Achilles tendon to the calcaneus (heel bone). Other painful heel conditions include: Achilles Tendonitis; Heel Spurs, Haglunds Deformity (pump bumps) and Plantar Fasciitis. A biomechanical evaluation is often necessary to determine the cause of painful heels and to provide a treatment plan to resolve/control it. Plantar Fasciitis Is a very common problem involving the bottom surface of the heel and the long arch. Pain usually begins as a dull ache and may progress to a sharp persistent ache. Often it is worse in the morning when a person rises out of bed or upon standing after sitting. The plantar fascia is a ligament that helps to form the medial longitudinal arch and it becomes inflamed due to abnormal or excessive stress created during heel strike when walking, running or standing. Swelling occurs deep inside the heel which causes pressure on the nerves in the region causing minor to severe pain while weight bearing. There are many reasons that cause a person to develop plantar fasciitis including: aging; excessive body weight; flat feet; high arches; poor quality or worn out shoes. A biomechanical examination is important to determine the cause of this condition so that proper treatment can occur to resolve this debilitating problems. Heel Spurs Are created by deposits of bone-like calcium on the heel bone at the insertion of the plantar fascia to the heel bone (calcaneus). It often develops as a result of a tear of the plantar fascia ligament near the front of the heel bone. The body lays down the calcium to strengthen the bond of the plantar fascia or to reattach it if a tear occurs. Spurs usually do not cause pain in this situation. Pain is usually caused by the inflammation associated with plantar fasciitis. A biomechanical assessment and possibly x-rays may be needed to determine the proper treatment options to control/resolve the pain.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Orthopedist in Manahawkin, Barnegat, Little Egg Harbor, NJ Dr. Samuel Epstein of Stafford Orthopedics discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. *******www.staffordortho**** Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when the tissues surrounding the flexor tendons in the wrist become swollen putting pressure on the median nerve. These tissues (synovium) lubricate the tendons which help to move the fingers. This swelling of these tissues (synovium) narrows the confined space of the carpal tunnel, which may eventually crowd the nerve.

Heel Pain Treatment - Podiatrist, foot Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, Foot Specialist, Toronto, ON What causes heel pain? One of the most common causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis or heel spur syndrome.Other causes include gout, arthritis, broken heel bone, infection, foreign bodies (such as stepping on a needle). Your podiatrist can determine the exact cause of your heel pain. What is plantar fasciitis or heel spur syndrome? Plantar fasciitis is due to a tight tendon located under the arch and attached to the bottom of the heel. It has become strained and inflamed, often due to a lack of proper support, or due to an injury, or overuse. Over time, the tendon may begin to pull away from its attachment at the heel and a bone spur develops. Generally, the problem is not due to the heel spur, it is due to the inflamed tendon. How do I know if I have plantar fasciitis? Usually, you will experience pain at the bottom of the heel, particularly when getting out of bed in the morning or when starting to walk following a period of rest. It tends to feel better after a moderate amount of walking. It may not hurt during a workout but usually hurts more the next day following the workout. What can I do at home to relieve the pain of plantar fasciitis? Applying ice to the tender area for short periods may help. Also, try gentle calf stretches. Aspirin may relieve the inflammation. Elevating the heel by putting a soft pad in the shoe under your sore heel may help. Women may feel better in a shoe with a higher heel. What if my heel still hurts? It's time to see a podiatrist. What will the podiatrist do? The key to relief is to reduce the inflammation and pulling of the tendon at the heel bone. The inflammation may be relieved by anti-inflammatory medicine, physiotherapy such as ultrasound, or a cortisone injection. The pulling of the tendon can be improved temporarily by supporting the arch with adhesive tapings. More long term relief may be obtained by the use of specialized shoe inlays called orthotics. They improve the mechanics of the foot and relax the plantar fascia tendon. I've tried medicine, cortisone, ice, rest, orthotics etc. and I'm losing hope. What else can be done? When conservative treatments fail, we consider surgically releasing the tight tendon at its attachment at the heel bone. The procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic using a small instrument called an endoscope. The procedure is called endoscopic plantar fasciotomy. What is endoscopic plantar fasciotomy? Under local anaesthetic, a small opening is made on either side of the heel. Through one opening, the endoscope or scope is inserted. The scope is attached to a small camera to allow the podiatrist to see the inflamed tendon on a television monitor. Through the other opening, small tools are used to make a tiny cut in the tendon. This allows the tendon to lengthen, relax, and relieve the tension on the heel bone or heel spur. Thus, the pain is relieved. It is usually not necessary to remove the spur.

Sports Injuries & Exercises - foot Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, Foot Specialist, Toronto, ON Podiatrist Sheldon Nadal discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for sports injuries. *******www.footcare**** Before beginning any exercise regimen, proper stretching is essential. If muscles are properly warmed up, the strain on muscles, tendons, and joints is reduced. Stretching exercises should take 5 to 10 minutes and ought to be conducted in a stretch/hold/relax pattern without any bouncing or pulling. It is important to stretch the propulsion muscles in the back of the leg and thigh (posterior) as well as the anterior muscles. Some effective stretching exercises to prepare the foot and ankle for exercise include: • The wall push-up. Face a wall from three feet away, with feet flat on the floor, and knees locked. Lean into the wall, keeping feet on the floor and hold for 10 seconds as the calf muscle stretches, then relax. Do not bounce. Repeat five times. • The hamstring stretch. Put your foot, with knee straight and locked, on a chair or table. Keep the other leg straight with knee locked. Lower your head toward the raised knee until the muscles tighten. Hold to a count of 10 then relax. Repeat five times, then switch to the other leg. • Lower back stretch. In a standing position, keep both legs straight, feet spread slightly. Bend over at the waist and attempt to touch the palms of your hands to the floor. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds and repeat 10 times. Do not bounce. Excessive tightness of the calf muscles can contribute to many foot and some knee problems. A key point of injury is the Achilles tendon, which attaches the calf muscle to the back of the heel. When the calf muscle tightens up, it limits the movement of the ankle joint. Calf muscle stretching is very useful in the prevention and treatment of many foot problems. Two typical methods for stretching your calf muscles include the wall push-up (described above) and this technique: Standing approximately two feet from a wall. While facing the wall, turn your feet inward (pigeon toed) and lean forward into the wall, keeping your heels on the floor and the knees extended. Keep your back straight and don't bend at the hips. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds and do the stretch 10 times in a row. Visit our website: *******www.footcare**** Visit our YouTube Channel: *******www.youtube****/watch?v=kUeTiC1K9Jo

Shoes and Preventing Foot Problems - foot Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, Foot Specialist, Toronto, ON Podiatrist Sheldon Nadal discusses How to Choose Shoes and Preventing Foot Problems *******www.footcare**** Examining old shoes before buying new ones can help you evaluate your wear patterns and buy new shoes with a better fit and style that compensates for the stresses you place on shoes. What are your shoes trying to tell you? Here is a translation of basic wear patterns: • A bulge and wear to the side of the big toe means too-narrow fit or you have a bunion. • Outer sole wear means you turn your foot out. Orthotics may help. • Toe-shaped ridges on the upper means your shoes are too small or you have hammertoes. • Wear on the ball of the foot means your heel tendons may be too tight. • Wear on the inner sole means you pronate or turn your foot inward. Inner liners or orthotics may help. • Wear on the upper, above the toes means the front of your shoe is too low.

Shock Wave Therapy for Foot Pain - Podiatrist in Bethesda, MD and Springfield, VA Dr. Paul Ross discusses Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy for Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis), Achilles Tendonitis, Sports Injuries and other Foot Problems. *******www.paulrossdpm**** Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is used to treat chronic heel pain (plantar fasciitis). Extracorporeal means outside of the body. During this noninvasive procedure, sonic waves are directed at the area of pain using a device similar to that currently used in nonsurgical treatment of kidney stones. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy is prescribed for patients who have experienced plantar fasciitis for an extended period of time -- six months or more -- and have not benefited from other conservative treatments. The brief procedure lasts about 30 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia and/or twilight anesthesia. Strong sound waves are directed at and penetrate the heel area to stimulate a healing response by the body. ESWT is performed on an outpatient basis. Although there are no bandages, someone will need to drive the patient home. Visit our website: *******www.paulrossdpm**** YouTube: *******www.youtube****/watch?v=MjmNvpiapl4&feature=youtu.be
