As the miles accumulate on our feet degenerative things can happen.
Just like what can happen to the knees, hips and back, can also happen as young as 40 to joints in the feet.
Degenerative-type things also happen to the Plantar Fascia, Achilles tendon and a couple of other tendons.
Pain is often a result of these degenerative changes.
Many years ago this would have spelled doom and gloom but not anymore.
Modern medicine has blessed us with REGENERATIVE options like never before.
It’s all about igniting the body’s healing potential to kick into high gear.
Technology’s such as Laser Therapy, Shockwave Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy have an amazing capacity to trigger our body’s regenerative potential.
Many surgical procedures are now avoided because of these technologies.
Lifestyle changes have been minimized by these regenerative methods.
But here’s the thing…
Not letting something degenerate too long goes a long way toward being able to reverse the tide.
Regeneration is faster, less painful and less expensive the earlier it’s instituted.
Although pain in the foot is often from inflammation it’s not always the case.
The opposite of inflammation is degeneration, often the culprit in chronic situations.
Since genetics can play a major role, you could be predisposed to this unfortunate condition.
Your feet are just too darn important to your mental and physical health to not have them functioning properly.
Being slowed down can affect your heart, blood sugar, blood pressure and weight just to name a few things.
Regenerating a hurt part of your foot is just another option to keep you moving effortlessly.
