What are Misaligned Feet & Why You Should Care

by | Jun 27, 2018 | Blog

You’re not alone if you are dealing with an issue like foot pain, which is generally caused by an underlying problem. If you’re like the majority of people, you don’t really know how to fix it or what to do. You could be thinking “out of sight, out of mind”.

You might try a few things to fix your feet or help ease the pain, but the only thing that will truly work is fixing the underlying issue and getting to the root of the problem: your misaligned feet.

You can have all sorts of issues, like aggravated foot problems, chronic foot pain, or pain in your knees, hips, back and neck. The only way to fix these problems that are preventing you from doing activities or causing you chronic pain, is to solve the underlying issue – misaligned feet. When your feet are misaligned, it leads to a chain reaction of misalignment in the body, affecting the knees, hips and back, often resulting in pain when standing, walking and running.

What Causes Foot Misalignment?

When your ankle bone (talus) slips off your heel bone, it causes the naturally occurring space (the sinus tarsi) to collapse. This leads to an excessive inward rotation of the ankle, also known as over-pronation or hyper-pronation. When the ankle rolls inward it causes misalignment in the feet and secondary problems to the rest of the body. When the feet are misaligned, it causes a chain reaction throughout the body that affects not only the feet, but knees, hips, back, and neck.

Common Signs of Misaligned Feet

The most common sign of misaligned feet is the inward rolling of the ankles, which is called Hyper-pronation or over-pronation. However, misaligned feet can lead to a variety of other symptoms including, flat feet, foot pain, back pain, knee pain, hip pain, bunions, hammertoe, plantar fasciitis, heel pain and more.

Why Foot Misalignment Should Matter to You

Your feet are the foundation of your body. They distribute the weight of your body and help you balance. Foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, abnormal or irregular walking patterns, flat feet and fallen arches, bunions, hammertoes, heel pain, over-pronation and more can throw of your balance and distribution of weight, causing foot pain and even pain in other parts of the body too.
Any irregularities in the feet can cause your body pain. Treating these abnormalities can help alleviate the pain, but only correcting the root problem – foot misalignment – will make them go away.
It’s estimated that almost 50% of people have misaligned. Many don’t even realize it, therefore don’t know to correct the issue. HyProCure® could be the best solution for you to correct the misalignment of the ankle bone and ease the discomfort in the rest of your body.

How HyProCure Works

HyProCure is a minimally invasive procedure, which means it’s performed by making a small incision near the outside of the ankle that places a medical grade titanium stent in the naturally occurring space between the ankle bone and heel bone (remember the sinus tarsi canal) to prevent the ankle bone from rolling in. This stops or decreases the abnormal, excessive motion causing the misalignment in the feet. There is no screwing or drilling involved.
The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting. Once the stent is placed, the threading around the stent allows the soft tissue within the space to adhere to the device naturally, so rarely does the device need to be removed. It will then allow normal joint range of motion and weight distribution of your body on your feet. This realigns the foot, restores the natural joint motion and redistributes the weight and balance of the body. HyProCure is a real and permanent solution for faulty foot mechanics and significantly reduces the negative effect on the body as a result of having misaligned feet.

If you have foot pain or pain in the rest of your body that is keeping you from activities you enjoy, don’t keep it “out of sight, out of mind” any longer. You may have misaligned feet and HyProCure could be the solution that can help.
