How Does Hip Pain Occur and Is There a Real Solution?

In order to truly restore proper alignment to the hip area, it is fundamental to correct the misalignment of forces coming from the legs. This, in turn, takes us to the root of the problem, which is located in the ankle and heel area of the foot. The leg’s balance – and in fact that of the entire body – rests on this area. Proper stability of the ankle bone over the hindfoot bones is fundamental in maintaining a healthy leg and hip alignment. When the stability of the ankle bone over the hindfoot bones is lost, this area collapses, turning inwards, creating a condition called partial talotarsal dislocation.

Patients suffering from hip pain as a consequence of imbalances can find the true source of their hip problems in their feet. Talotarsal displacement causes the foundation of the leg, the rearfoot, to shift inwards, creating a complex misalignment of forces that gets transferred up the leg and into the hip area, causing damage to joints and other tissues.

HyProCure® can resolve partial talotarsal dislocation instantly and permanently through a brief, minimally invasive procedure, restoring foot stability and proper balance. As a direct benefit, this will also restore proper leg and hip alignment, eliminating excessive unnatural forces from the unstable foot structure that caused the abnormal tissue strain and wear-and-tear in the joints.

HyProCure® is Scientifically Proven to Eliminate Excessive Joint Forces within the Foot

Instability of the hindfoot bones leads to excessive abnormal forces acting on the ligaments and tendons on the inner-side of the foot. Once HyProCure® is placed into the foot and stabilized the ankle bone, these forces are restored back to normal.

The effects of partial talotarsal dislocation include fallen arches, bunions, overpronation, Achilles tendonitis, posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, and pain in the foot, ankle, knee, hip, back or even shoulder and jaw area. The HyProCure® device instantly stabilizes the ankle bone on the hindfoot bones, leading to reversal of the associated effects of the dislocation.

Treatment for Bunions

The Problem: Moderate to Severe Bunions

Bunions are a common problem that most people experience as a bony protuberance at the base of the big toe. When a patient has a bunion, the big toe angles in toward the other toes, a condition called hallux valgus.

As the big toe becomes more and more angled (pointing toward the other toes), the base of the toe becomes more and more prominent, forming the bunion. The bunion forms in part because of the new angle of the toe, and in part due to inflammation over the bunion surface. As the inflammation worsens, people can experience pain with shoe wear and walking.

The big toe may eventually come to lie over, or more commonly under, the second toe. This may cause further irritation while wearing shoes and more pain. The second toe of patients who have bunions commonly forms a hammer toe.

The Solution: Introducing osteo-WEDGETM

Traditional bunion corrective surgical techniques are like cutting a wedge out of the leaning tower of Pisa to make it straight when the real problem was with the foundation. The osteo-WEDGETM Open Wedge Bone Locking System fixes the deformity at its foundation. With osteo-WEDGETM, patients and foot surgeons have a new option for permanent correction, without the limitations of other methods. The procedure is less invasive and patients should experience a quicker recovery than they would with the alternates.
