Whatever You Do, Don’t Do This

July 24, 2010

This foot belongs to my patient Susan P.  She and I wanted to share with the world what happens after multiple surgeries.  Do not believe that cutting into any muscle is going to relieve you of pain, especially in the foot.  The tissue scars up and the muscle, in medical lingo, contractures.  In patients who have bunion surgery, after the tissue heals, the podiatrists just look at the LOOK of the bunion.  They don’t question the function of the foot.  Please read my previous posts about feet pain.  Feet problems are never local to the foot.  Feet pain is a distal manifestation of a proximal problem.  With Susie, now that the foot is messed up, I always have to calm down the spasms.  She does not leave a session without me treating her knee, hips, back, neck and head.  The cause is always upstream and the answer is always osteopathic manipulative treatments to that cause – which is vector reduction of the distal strain.  www.doctorhoang.com  For more pictures of what the foot looks like after bunion surgery, look at my prior post
