Let’s assume that because you have come to this website that you are interested in foot problems. Maybe you have foot pain yourself or maybe you are looking for information for someone else. You must realize that different sources will vary in their portrayal of medical topics. It is up to you to use your own intelligence to decide whether the things that these sources say ring true to you.
One of my biggest reasons for writing The Whole Foot Bookwas to share the experiences and answer the questions that my patients have had over the years during the course of treatment.
I’m almost done with my website, wholefoot.com, and I’m ready to start blogging again. While I’ve been away, I’ve been thinking of ways to make these segments more useful. For the next several segments, I’m going to review some real cases that I have seen in my clinics. Now, from my perspective and that of other orthopedic and podiatric surgeons, these are not the most interesting cases.
Take home points: All body tissue follows a predictable sequence of healing whether that tissue is bone, tendon, or ligament. Understanding this pattern can help us to devise intelligent and rational methods of approaching these injuries. This pattern is easy to understand even for someone without a medical background. It is also important to understand that in long-standing injuries that all of these stages may be occurring in different areas of the injury.
