Keravita Pro

by Jerome Princy (2019-11-13)

Generally, whether the Keravita Pro Review patient has arthritis or not, foot and ankle pain usually stems from, or is exacerbated by, ill-fitting shoes. Hammertoes, painful toenails, bunion pain and neuroma are conditions that occur when the foot begins to change to the shape of the shoe. Wearing comfortable, adequate footwear can help free you of foot and ankle pain without the cost and time spent on surgery and other treatment. Proper, well-fitting shoes are very important and helpful in improving mobility of patients suffering from arthritis. Another key to pain-free feet and ankles is regular exercise. To minimize stiffness and pain, stretching out the Achilles tendon (the cord at the back of the heel) and the tendons inside the balls of your feet appears to be effective. Foot and ankle massage is also considered helpful in preventing abnormal stress from immobility and to ease foot and ankle pain over time. A flat foot condition that does not respond to conservative therapies, and remains painful or continues to cause other problems, may require flat foot surgery. Not all foot disorders cause problems, but those that do can lead to several kinds of painful or uncomfortable foot complications such as heel pain, toenail pain, bunion pain and even fungal toenail infection. Flat foot exists when the bones located at the arch of the foot have collapsed and are flat. There are many different causes and types of flat foot. A congenital flat foot is a condition that one is born with, while acquired foot develops over time and is likely to cause more pain and other symptoms. When foot becomes too painful to bear by the patient, the podiatrist will probably prescribe orthotic management and flat foot surgery. Orthotic treatment enables relocation of a mobile foot and assists it to hold its corrected position. This treatment is only effective when the orthotic appliance is worn in the shoe. The orthotic consists of a rigid plastic arch, mainly to support the arch of the foot, with a "wedge" placed under its inner side to tilt, and a heel cup to hold it so the heel will be repositioned. Orthotics, in some cases like rigid and arthritic foot, may only be able to improve symptoms but will not correct the foot position. With rigid and painful flat foot, as well as orthotic failure in treating the condition due to tibialis posterior dysfunction, most cases will require foot surgery as treatment. These worst cases often result from untreated flat foot.
