What is the HyProCure Solution®? Are you or a loved one suffering from pain in the heels, hips or back? If your discomfort results from a partial talotarsal dislocation, this procedure may change how you feel about your feet (and the rest of your body)!
The feet and ankles set the tone for the alignment of the rest of the body. If everything is functioning properly, then your weight and movement are distributed evenly across your body. However, if something is out of place in the feet, then the whole body suffers. In a talotarsal dislocation, the ankle moves out of line with the heel bone and the navicular bone (a bone on the top of the foot).
Heel pain, flat feet, and ankles that roll in too much as you walk are all possible signs that the sinus tarsi, or the spaces where the ankle, heel, and one of the mid-foot bones meet have been affected. This is detrimental, because it is within this space that weight and movement are distributed.
This missing link can cause discomfort all the way up your body, but you don’t have to live with the pain that this dislocation can cause. The HyProCure Solution®, a stabilizer, re-establishes the integrity of the sinus tarsi. Without the use of screws, or any type of drilling, the device is inserted into the space that is diminishing. By opening this space back up, the area is stable and in-line once again. The procedure is usually done using a local anesthetic or twilight sedation. Healing time varies, but some patients are back on their feet within a few weeks.
Dr. Marco Vargas understands that the feet and ankles dictate the alignment of the rest of the body. Both adults and children are affected by the misalignment that results from a partial talotarsal dislocation. If you are experiencing pain, make an appointment today for a comprehensive exam.
