The HyProCure Procedure
The HyProCure Procedure is a permanent surgical solution for your flat feet fixing an implant into the area of the feet known as the Sinus Tarsi. The Sinus Tarsus is a space that occurs naturally between your heel bones and the ankle bones. If your feet are aligned properly your sinus tarsi would always be in an open position. If your feet are not aligned properly it would collapse when you put weight on your feet. This means that simple actions such as walking, jumping, and running would be bad for your sinus tarsi and, by extension, your feet. In spite of this condition being so common, it is undertreated.
This is a common problem
It is seen among people of all ages across the world. Our feet are the very foundation on which our bodies depend for support. Even if one foot is aligned the wrong way it can have a bad effect on the upper parts of your body, such as knees, back, and hips. It could cause a lot of other side effects or symptoms.
HyProCure is fundamentally a titanium stent that is placed in your sinus tarsi in order to make sure that the area does not collapse.
This in turn means that your ankle bone is stabilized. One of the greatest aspects of this process is that it is minimally invasive. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and will stabilise the foot. This also allows a normal range of motion at the joint. This way, the overall alignment and balance of your feet and ankle are improved. The arch of your foot would appear to be normal as well. In fact, most patients treated with this procedure start to walk normally within a few weeks.
After the treatment, over a number of months the bones, ligaments, and tendons all across your foot and the entire body continue to adapt to this improved position.
A few quick facts about HyProCure
FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of the USA (United States of America) cleared this particular procedure back in 2004. It is an evidence based procedure. Foot and ankle surgeons in more than 40 countries around the world use this particular procedure.
Patients include both adults and children who have various levels of activity. The HyProCure implant is made from titanium and this means it would never set off metal detectors. This means that you would be able to take CT (computed tomography) scans and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) tests without any problem whatsoever.
Conclusion There are certain situations where HyProCure could be just what the doctor ordered. Apart from misaligned feet if you have pain in your heels, hammertoes, and bunions, the HyProCure procedure could be the answer.
