Foot Deformities

Bunions



A bunion is a bone deformity caused by a shift in the bones around the big toe joint. This causes a painful bump that can rub on shoegear and cause pain. Additionally, there may be pain when moving the joint and when walking because the big toe joint is out of alignment. This deformity can be caused by heredity, arthritis, flat feet, trauma, and improper shoegear.

The goal for treating bunions is to relieve the pain and pressure of the deformity and may include the following: wider shoegear, padding, custom made orthotics or arch supports, injections, medications, and surgical correction ( to reallign the bones that are out of place).

Hammer Toes



A hammer toe is a deformity where the toe is bent at the middle joint, causing it to resemble a hammer. Left untreated, hammertoes can become inflexible, making it difficult to bend the toe. Hammer toes are primarily caused by a muscular imbalance of the toe. People with hammertoes may have corns or an extra layer of hard skin on the top of the middle joint of the toe or on the tip of the toe. Treatment for this condition typically involves wearing shoes with soft, roomy toe boxes, strapping and padding, removal of the corns regularly, and surgery to straighten the toe.

The Ideal Protein Diet has worked for me. Over a four month period starting in May, 2014, I lost 40 plus pounds on this diet. I have been able to maintain this weight loss since then.

I was feeling very sluggish, bloated and not full of life. I went online to Advanced Physical Medicine to make an appointment for a colon hydrotherapy. Well lets just say after doing 3 sessions, I FEEL AWESOME! Elida is the best colonic therapist that you can ever have. Not only is the procedure comfortable, but afterwards you will have so much energy. Elida also recommended the Total Tea Gentle Detox Tea, and OMG! Also the best. I have type 2 Diabetes, and I have been feeling so much better with this tea. It's a great taste, no sugar needed! This was the best decision that I have done in a long time. The staff here is also pretty awesome! Thank you so much Advanced Physical Medicine and Elida!

The Ideal Protein Diet has worked for me. Over a four month period starting in May, 2014, I lost 40 plus pounds on this diet. I have been able to maintain this weight loss since then. On the Ideal Protein diet I can honestly say that I have never been hungry, and it has helped me change over to healthy eating habits. I am a type-two diabetic and was on one-half dozen different medications for diabetes. With the weight loss my blood sugars are now normal and I am off all diabetic meds! The Ideal Protein diet has changed my life!
