Bunions or more accurately Hallux Valgus, is a progressive disorder that worsens year by year. The progression is so slow that it can go unnoticed until pain is felt somewhere on the foot. #healthandwellness

Numerous conditions of the foot, ankle, knee and lower back are treatable with orthotics. Compared to surgery or repetitive therapy, it is a far more cost-effective solution.

The left and right foot of the same person. The first image is of a foot that has a navicular drop or collapsed arch. While the other foot does not.

In the last Olympics many athletes were sporting various forms of colourful Kinesiotaping. Now that we know that doesn't work we have come up with something new. This year it appears to be the left overs temporary scars of cupping sessions.

A typical example of how 'healthcare' can follow trends.

Been having a stressful week but a patient I saw in this morning's session put a smile on my face. She said: "So much better after just one treatment? Cannot be!"

On her first visit last week she was complaining of knee pain and difficulty walking. After an x-ray evaluation we diagnosed knee osteoarthritis. One of the treatments we decided to use was shock wave therapy.

Today she walked in happy and made the above comment.

Shock wave therapy is a very effective modality and is backed by ongoing research. However, just like any other instrument, its effectiveness depends on the user. Not everyone with a blade is a great surgeon. It takes years of training and practice. So sometimes patients who don't benefit from it require further investigation. Is the diagnosis correct, is the patient compliant and is the dosage sufficient?

I personally received training from Germany and have practiced administering shock wave therapy for 5 years. I am reminded by patients on a daily bases just how well it works for them!

If you are suffering from muscle and joint pain in the leg and foot, it could work for you too.
