Fungus Eliminator

by Jerome Princy (2019-11-24)

Some examples of patients Fungus Eliminator Review we see with fallen arches include: teachers who stand all day on a concrete floor; hard surfaces such as these often cause the arches of the feet to break down. Construction workers who stand and walk on gravel, cement and climb ladders all day, and runner's who run outside on the pavement. These individuals often come to my office not complaining of foot pain, although their feet may be sore at the end of the day. These people come with complaints of low back pain, neck pain, sciatica and many other things that are usually what I call secondary issues that result from primary problems in the feet. Treating the secondary areas alone can bring relief, however, addressing the primary area as well as the secondary ones not only helps the patient attain pain relief faster, it also helps them strengthen the body and prevent these and other secondary issues from occurring in the future. A good starting point for everyone is buying the proper footwear. Some recommendations include measuring each foot's length and width as each foot may vary in size, measure your feet standing as your feet expand while bearing weight. Measure your feet at the end of the day as swelling can occur and cause your feet to enlarge. When it comes to athletic shoes keep it simple. Stay away from athletic shoes that contain gels and compression devises as studies show that people that wear these types of shoes have the highest rates of foot related sprains and strain injuries. When dealing with more complicated problems in terms of the foot a shoe is not specific for the patient's problem. Much like a fingerprint each foot has its specific characteristics. For these types of circumstances we use an orthotic devise for the patient's shoes. The orthotics that we utilize are semi-ridged versus ridged or hard. The difference is that the semi-ridged orthotic allows your foot and all other muscles above to strengthen as your walking while at the same time adding support to the collapsed arch. Hard-ridged orthotics prevent your feet and muscles from strengthening. I use the analogy of a spring to your body's response to the semi-ridged types of orthotics. Your body basically functions like one big "spring", when you take a step and your foot is planted to the ground its like squeezing a spring together, your compressing it and storing "energy". When your foot leaves the ground that's when you're letting go of the spring, it releases the energy and propels your body forward. Hard-ridged orthotics prevent this spring like phenomenon from occurring and keep your body in a weakened state.
