HyProCure Implant: For the treatment of misaligned feet, frequently referred to as flat feet. Structural misalignment of the feet leads to many common foot problems for individuals of all activity levels. A good way to think of misalignment problems is to use the analogy of a car driving down the road and hitting a pothole in the springtime with the front right tire. You know the front-end alignment on your car is out and that it needs to be taken into be adjusted.  You are busy and you forget to take your car in, after a while your car starts to pull toward the right shoulder of the road, you will eventually come out your car in November and notice that the front wheels are worn out. This analogy works quite well for many foot problems caused by misalignment, a small imbalance over time creates larger problems with more in the way of symptoms in your feet.  Some of the more common problems caused by misalignment of our feet are: Heel and arch pain, neuroma/nerve entrapment, discomfort with activity, particularly with athletic activities for both adults and children, Achilles and tibial tendinitis to name a few. Is HyProCure right for me?
