Hi Gayle

I hope you will become one of those success stories. I hope I can tell my success story at some point. My pod wants me to continue using solaraze gel on my foot 3 times a day which is a type of anti inflamatory and he also wants me to wear nothing but my MBT shoes (even in the house) for the next 5 weeks so we can make a judgement as to whether or not they are helping. They take the weight off the ball of the foot so maybe they will help.

He also mentioned trying Lyrica for 3 months. He said in many cases the Lyrica will block the nerve and after the 3 months many people find the nerve annoyance doesn't come back or if it does not near as bad and they can go off it. He said there are many ways to treat a nerve problem and everyone is different. What works for one may not work for another.

I am in no way in a hurry to go on any drug. The side effects are worse than what you are treating. One thing about Lyrica, it is known to cause you to gain weight and who needs that!
For now I am going to be trying alpha lipoic acid which is a vitamin that suppose to help with neuropathy problems. I read many success stories on the health board website about how well it has helped people. I will try anything before resorting to a drug. Keep me posted as to how you are doing.

Hi Sharon,

Yes, all surgeries were for the same original neuroma. One explanation I was given was that it re-grew formed like a mushroom cap (stump neuroma). My scars on top and on bottom of my foot just kept getting longer (3 surgeries on top, 2 on bottom). I recently started PT again on my foot since I am going there for my knee. The massage and ultra sound are helping with the scar tissue. I need to be more diligent with massaging my foot at home.

After my 4th surgery I tried an Acti-Patch. This is similar to a TENS unit, but it is battery operated and the battery lasts only a month. I applied it to the bottom of my foot when I slept, hoping that the pain would not be as bad when I walked the next day. I tried this for 2 months and I did not see any noticeable improvement.

Regarding pain clinics: They do not put you on drugs, but rather teach you about chronic pain and provide group therapy, exercise, wellness, and in my case, art therapy classes. My pain meds are controlled by my pain doc, and I am not taking anything addictive. Folks addicted to pain meds must de-tox before entering the program. The physical therapists give you exercises specifically addressing your problem(s).

I am sure that there are numerous success stories after additional neuroma surgeries, it's just that I am not one of them (yet?).

Regarding ortho vs. DPM: Years ago I saw two orthos with the same x-ray and they could not diagnose a stress fracture. A DPM did within minutes of looking at the x-ray. I am sure that there are good foot orthos out there, but none came up when I asked my network for recommendations.

Best of Luck to you - I hope that you leave your appt. tomorrow with confidence in the next steps in your journey.

Thanks for responding. Were all 5 of your surgeries for a neuroma? I can't believe you had to go through so many surgeries. I am terrified at the thought of another surgery. Whose to say that my foot would feel any better? What I experience is not really pain (although I think I could stand that better) What I have, I am told is scar tissue rubbing against a nerve. It feels like I am walking on sandpaper, or like walking on broken up seashells every step I take. Definately a bad nerve entrapment of some kind. Like you the pod who did the surgery has never admitted that anything went wrong. He had me going to therapy, acupuncture, and even suggested a pain clinic. I don't want to go there because I don't want to be doped up with a bunch of drugs that only cover up the problem. What did they do for you at the pain clinic and did it help you at all? I have been seeing a different pod for several months and he has tried different things that I mentioned in my other post. So far nothing is helping me.I go back to see him on Friday and I am going to ask him about prescribing a T.E.N.S Unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator)that I would use at home.I had tens treatment at his office, but it didn't really help much, and the reason is because you are supposed to use it daily and I only went to see him once a month. There must be some way to get rid of scar tissue.I did have one injection that was suppose to help soften the scar tissue. He said it did help a little to soften. It just seems that someone somewhere could come up with a solution to our ongoing foot probems. I wonder sometime if I should have went to an orthopedic Dr.

Hi Sharon,

I certainly sympathize with you. I wish that I never had surgery #5 in May 2008 and could go back to my pain level after surgery #4 since the pain is so much greater now. On a scale of 1-10 my pain level prior to surgery #5 was a 6, and now it is an 8 (of course I really hate this scale system and recognize that our pain recalibrates after some interventions, etc.). I, too, have had all that you mention and have found that the low profile MBT's are better than the higher (and older) profile soles. The one sneaker that I now wear all the time (and bought 6 pairs in case I can't find them anymore) is the Reebok DMX Crosstown walking shoe. It is available at Kohls.com in more sizes than you will find in their stores. The 'pods' at the bottom of the shoe act in a similar fashion as a rocker bottom shoe and helps keep pressure off of the forefoot. This model Reebok has more natural padding inside than the MBT's. I have a wide foot, so many other makes of shoes that may work for some will not work for me.

My first podiatrist could not admit that his operation did not fix me. Surgeries 2-4 were done by an instructor at a local podiatry school. He thought that my issue was solvable, and sent me to a plastic surgeon to do a more intensive surgery. I see my pain doctor more frequently than I see my new podiatrist. I have just finished an 8 week program at a pain clinic. I understand chronic pain a lot more, but I still don't want to accept it.

So the sneaker is all that I can recommend right now. I am about to have another MRI (have not had one since surgery #3), to see why a recent lidocaine-type (can't remember the exact name) injection into the 2nd-3rd metatarsal space traveled up and then around the bottom of my foot out to the base of my pinky toe. Not what the doctor was expecting, but totally validating where my pain is under my foot. My second and third toes are now splaying, indicative of another neuroma (and why he injected there). If the diagnostic tests confirm a neuroma anywhere in my foot I will concede to another operation as I am not handling this pain well at all. I realize that I am very lucky not to have RSD after having so many surgeries, but the risk for me is worth it.

I had neuroma surgery in May 2008 and now my foot feels worse than it did before surgery. What I am experiencing is numbness and annoying feeling in ball of foot. The pod I am going to now says it is scar tissue rubbing against the nerve. I have had tens treatments, an injection to help soften the scar tissue, padding to get the weight off ball of foot,orthotics, just to mention a few. I just purchased a pair of mpt shoes that I was told might help (they do help to get the weight off ball of foot a little) This feeling is driving me insane, I want it to stop, but no one seems to be able to come up with a solution. I also wish I would never have had the surgery in the first place. I am terrified with the thought of cutting into my foot again to remove scar tissue or a possible stump neuroma. Whose to say my foot wouldn't feel even worse? If there is anyone who has had a similiar experience who has found relief I would welcome any suggestions. Nothing worse than having a continual, never ending nerve problem in your foot that you feel with every step you take.

Custom Orthotics View Thread
Posted by Aaron S on 9/29/09 at 13:46

I've recently been cast for orthotics. I've gotten them now and have never had more problems with my feet and legs. I originally went to the Pod to try to eleviate some back problems. He diagnosed me with a collapsing right arch. My arches are very high and my legs are slightly bowed so my ankles suppinate a lot. Since I've gotten the orthotics I've been in 7-10 times where the Pod has shaved the orthotics added wedges and they just don't seem to be working out. Any advice? I'm considering just asking for my money back and going with a over the counter arch support like 'Good Feet'.

Also, is the 'orthotic test' just a scam when you stand up with your hands in front of you and pressure is applied to see if you fall forward?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Roman Polanskii View Thread

Should Roman Polanski be brought back from Switzerland to face charges of rape of a 13 year old girl some 30 years ago? He is somewhat of a hero in France. He paid off the girl and she now does not want to prosecute him and he has admitted the crime. Does time alone exonerate him? He has agreed to come back if he is guaranteed no jail time. There still is no guarantee that Switzerland will deport him but at least some. He has won many awards since moving to France but that has nothing to do with the crime. He is now 76 years old, rich, and married.

If you have forgotten his wife was the startlet Sharon Tate who was murdered in the famous Hollywood murders many years ago.

Ive been suffering from Plantars fasciitis in both feet for several years done ALL the things with no help, including orthoics and physical therapy. Recenlty went to new podatrist because he does shockwave. He sent me to get an ultrasound and basiclly it showed

Thickening of the medial band bilaterally measuring 4.2mm left and 4.6mm right
and medial plantar nerve intrapment in the right foot

I just recently started to get hip pain(right leg) and radiates down the leg not sure if this is connected but mite be the nerve thats intrapped

My doctor is suggesting the shockwave therapy because it's the only thing that will help break up tissue which is suppose to be arond 2mm not 4mm

I seen the PRP therapy and Topez but that probably won't break up tissue like shockwave

just looking for some opinions

I had grastroc slide surgery to relieve PF that I have been suffering from for almost two years. I had tried EVERYTHING from cortizone injections, lifts, stretching exercises, Core therapy, Physical therapy...you name it I tried it. The original doctor I was seeing (a podritrist) wanted me to have the fascia release but I did not hear of many good results so I went to an orthopeditic and he said that my condition was chronic and suggested the gastroc slide. I am 3 weeks post surgery and am still walking mostly in a boot. I am not able to do any exercising at this point and will see my doctor on the 16th. The surgery was not bad but the recovery is longer than I anticipated. I'm told I need to be patient so that's what I'm trying to do! I just want to be able to walk around without a lot of pain!!!!

Re: More on the health care issue: the view from England View Thread
Posted by Julie on 8/23/09 at 02:50


Ed, of course Dr Manley was silly: not just to squander his money on Porsches but to hold an unrealistic and misguided view of the system. I thought the article made that clear. And given his high level of self-indulgence it's unlikely he was providing pro bono services. But Dr Manley wasn't the point of the article, which was primarily about Dr Sharon Lee's clinic, where one public-spirited doctor is trying to heal the cracks left by the system and serve the people who have dropped through those cracks.

I don't doubt for a moment that you and many other good doctors provide discounted services. I'm glad to know it. But there are too many people in the poorer areas of America who cannot afford any services. Sharon Lee describes 'a huge army of jobless and low-income working families who are left in limbo' and says 'It's the working poor who are most at disadvantage'...people with no insurance avoiding seeking medical help for fear of the bills that follow, until it is too late'. The woman who halved her diabetes and heart medication when her husband was injured and they could not afford medical care for both of them is a case in point.

I hope you agree that this is a totally unacceptable state of affairs.

You've mentioned more than once the need for a plan to cover 'catastrophic illness'. That is not health care. Health care is knowing that you can rely on seeing a doctor whenever you are ill, and on your health care needs being met until you get better or die.

You mentioned individual responsibility. Under a system of health care financed out of taxation that individual responsibility has been shouldered by everyone who pays taxes. Of course, there are those who do not pay taxes because they are not in work, and of course there is benefit fraud, which needs to be addressed. But the basic principle - of the whole community looking after the health of every member of the community - is, to me, inviolable.

Re: Kidner Procedure View Thread
Posted by MichelleM on 7/19/09 at 21:25

Hey Aaron,

Well, I'm definitely not running, but I'm making progress. I'm out of the walking boot - part-time. That just happened a week ago, but I think that was about a week or so later than needed just because my surgeon was on vacation. My surgery was May 27th. My doctor basically said that if it hurts to go back into the walking boot. Since it's summer and humid he expected a lot of swelling, but mine hasn't been that bad. I've gone for a couple of physio appointments (one soon after I went into the walking boot and one soon after I came out of the walking boot) which helped me a lot. She just gave me a few exercises that helped a lot with my range of motion. If you have coverage and can go, I would highly recommend it.

Also, another thing that I did when I went into the walking boot was to add a heel lift. It took a lot of strain off my Achilles. My physio told me that 6-weeks post-op was a milestone. Until then, the tendon is still under repair, but after 6 weeks it is a lot more secure. I took it easy in the walking boot until I reached that 6-week mark.

I've just been out of the boot for a week and I'm walking ok. I do put the boot on when my foot gets tired. I do the exercises that the PT gave me several times a day and I stretch my Achilles for about a minute a few times a day too.

My doctor said that I could do some cycling to start building leg strength.

Let me know if you have any other questions. Best of luck in your recovery!

The politics of being rich. View Thread
Posted by john h on 7/15/09 at 10:30

I there inherently something wrong with being rich? When we look for scapegoats or want to polarize the people the politicians first like to jump on the rich. Who among us would not like to be rich? It is sort of an American dream to grow up and someday be rich. Certainly many of the rich became rich through inheritance but that is part of democracy. Most became rich by working hard, innovation and not giving up. Bill Gates was not born rich nor was Sam Walton but they became some of the richest people in the world. 'Big' & 'Rich' have become sort of joined

It seems to me that many of the most aggressive people wanting to help the poor are often the very rich. The Kennedy family is a prime example. This is based on not facts just an observation.

Why do people who are not rich quickly jump on board when a politician say 'tax the rich'. This clearly is class warfare promoted by politicians. A strange part of this is that nearly all if not all Senators are rich or will soon be rich. I see nothing wrong what so ever with being rich. It is part of the American Capitalistic system and Democracy. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington became rich. One would have to come to the conclusion that most rich people originally became rich by doing something no one else could do and through hard work. Our nation would not have become the greatest nation on earth without some people becoming rich. The drive to become rich is a force unto itself. We can always point to the robber barons and there will always be greed among both the poor and the rich. Being rich is sure not a bad thing as being poor is not a good thing.

I have never smoked and wish no one smoked but is it fair or is it right to tax cigarettes out of existence and not do the same thing for alcohol? Most people do not smoke so it is easy to get them just like sheep to follow the politicians leads. Politicians know they would be run out of office to place even more taxes on alcohol..

I am not rich yet and it appears I may never make it but I did have my chance which is something most of the people in the world cannot say.

Re: Shoes with good arch support View Thread

Hi,

I have not received the shoes yet, but am anxious to get them. I was looking for a dressing heeled shoe that I could wear with a dress. I found the Mia/Avaron (made by New Balance) It looks like it is comfortable, podiatrist recommended, and finally a very cute looking shoe. (It actually has a rounded toe to boot!) I don't like pointed toes on shoes. Only Space aliens have feet shaped like a point.

I will be charged $149.99 but there is no shipping cost involved. To some this may seem a bit expensive for shoes. Yet, I have found one gets what they pay for in the long run. I don't have to dress up that often but when I do I also want comfort.

I also found the Drew Betsy on line. One site had it on sale for #39.99. (Orginally $149.99) It is a basic black pump but has more depth and one can add their own arch supports. I have ordered shoes similar to this style from other companies and have always found that my feet hurt. I don't believe that shoes should ever make your feet hurt! If they do donate them to a nice charity. Perhaps someone else will have a foot that fits them better? Yet, the Betsy is great and is a keeper as far as I am concerned.

Type in Mia/Aravon and Drew and you will find many sites that have these shoes. I especially thought the Mia shoe was adorable and looked comfortable. Janelle

Aron,

Thank you for your explanation. If you noticed, I did allow your post due to it's accuracy. One of the reasons the owner of this website made the decision to have an 'ask the doctors' section on this site was to avoid the plethora of misinformation that was being supplied by other 'patients'. Most answers were simply based on one anecdotal experience, and as I'm sure you will agree, that is often a source of significant misinformation.

Additionally, as per your statement of providing 'online diagnoses', if you have followed this site for any time, you will notice that I always refer a patient back to the treating doctor if a diagnosis has not already been received, and I will always refer a patient back to the treating surgeon regarding post operative questions.

I attempt to let 'patients' know that the purpose of this site is not to provide diagnoses, but to answer general questions about treatment options, medications, explanations about a particular diagnosis, treatment modality, etc., and is not to replace a 'hands-on' examination.

I'm actually amazed on a daily basis how many people will actually get on an internet forum and ask for 'medical' advice from basically total strangers, prior to picking up the phone and simply making an appointment with a local doctor.

I don't know what your field of expertise happens to be, but I would welcome your participation in this forum at anytime you believe you can contribute.

If you continue this dialogue I will delete your future posts, since it CLEARLY states in bold red letters on this message board that responses are to be from medical professionals only. Therefore, I anticipate your future cooperation. Thank you.

AnnShh,

I allowed Aron's post to remain because unlike many that post responses on this board, his post was accurate. A subluxing peroneal tendon(s) may be the cause of your symptoms and can be from a shallow groove or injury to this groove. There are several ways to surgically correct this depending on the surgeon's preferred choice. Also accurately mentioned by Aron is the proximity of the sural nerve which can became injured or entrapped in scar tissue.

He is correct that you must choose an experience orthopedic foot/ankle surgeon or experienced podiatric surgeon that has performed this procedure many times. Since your doctor is sending you to Baltimore, I have a suspicion he may be sending you to Dr. Mark Myerson, who is considered one of the best.

If you do have a subluxing peroneal tendon(s) this can sometimes be visualized in 'real time' imaging if you have a radiologist experienced in diagnostic ultrasound. The radiologist can actually see the tendon sublux with the motion you described during movement under ultrasound. If this is occurring, other than bracing, surgical intervention is the only real permanent option.

AnnShh,
I am still in my cast from a repair of a subluxating peroneal tendon. Basically, I had no fibular groove for the tendons to sit in, so they subluxated on a regular basis. I did the PT, the CAM walker, ice, anti-inflammatories, and nothing helped. The surgery honestly wasn't that bad, but be prepared for a long stint on crutches. I had an arthrotomy, a radical reconstruction, and a repair of the subluxating tendon. I was on darvocet for about 6 days, then Advil was suffucient. I've been in the hard cast/splint for 3 weeks non-weight bearing, and I get it taken off tomorrow as well as getting the sutures removed. I'll be in the big black boot for 3 more weeks with partial weight bearing, and then into my shoes with full weight bearing. You surgeon of course may have a very different time frame for you, but that's what mine was.

I do recommend that you find an orthopedic surgeon that is highly reguarded, because the sural nerve runs right through the area of the incision, and it is very easy to have nerve involvement and then be stuck with numb, tingly toes. I was fortunate in having a great surgeon down here in Florida, and my pre-operative pain was gone immediately, and post-operative pain was gone in a matter of days(as long as the peroneus brevis didn't so much as twitch).

Sounds like surgery is the way to go if you aren't getting relief from PT - but I would definitely find the best possible surgeon you can.

'American Thinker' What a pompous name! Typical for a right-wing org. Anyway, that quote is a miracle of condensation. I've never seen so many unsupported assumptions in such a small paragraph. Tammy see if you can read this WHOLE thing:

From the NY Sun:
We're no shills for Mr. Obama, but these Republicans haven't checked their facts. At least by our lights, Mr. Obama's commitment to Israel, as he has articulated it so far in his campaign, is quite moving and a tribute to the broad, bipartisan support that the Jewish state has in America.

In remarks to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Chicago in March, Mr. Obama spoke about his first visit to Israel, in January 2006. 'I flew on an IDF helicopter to the border zone. The helicopter took us over the most troubled and dangerous areas and that narrow strip between the West Bank and the Mediterranean Sea. At that height, I could see the hills and the terrain that generations have walked across. I could truly see how close everything is and why peace through security is the only way for Israel,' Mr. Obama said, sounding like a certain governor of Texas recounting the helicopter tour he got as a presidential candidate from a future prime minister named Ariel Sharon.

Mr. Obama spoke of 'a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel: our strongest ally in the region and its only established democracy.' Quoth he: 'That will always be my starting point.' Mr. Obama spoke of the threat of Iran. 'President Ahmadinejad has denied the Holocaust. He held a conference in his country, claiming it was a myth. But we know the Holocaust was as real as the 6 million who died in mass graves at Buchenwald, or the cattle cars to Dachau or whose ashes clouded the sky at Auschwitz. We have seen the pictures. We have walked the halls of the Holocaust museum in Washington and Yad Vashem. We have touched the tattoos on loved-ones arms. After 60 years, it is time to deny the deniers,' he said.

Mr. Obama went further, stating: 'In the 21st century, it is unacceptable that a member state of the United Nations would openly call for the elimination of another member state. But that is exactly what he has done. Neither Israel nor the United States has the luxury of dismissing these outrages as mere rhetoric.' Mr. Obama added: 'We must preserve our total commitment to our unique defense relationship with Israel by fully funding military assistance and continuing work on the Arrow and related missile defense programs. This would help Israel maintain its military edge and deter and repel attacks from as far as Tehran and as close as Gaza.'

He took Israel's side against those who would fault it for its actions in Lebanon in the Summer of 2006. 'When Israel is attacked, we must stand up for Israel's legitimate right to defend itself,' Mr. Obama said. 'Last summer, Hezbollah attacked Israel. By using Lebanon as an outpost for terrorism, and innocent people as shields, Hezbollah has also engulfed that entire nation in violence and conflict, and threatened the fledgling movement for democracy there.'

And Mr. Obama rejected the idea, put forth by Israel's false friends, that America does Israel any favors by exerting pressure in the name of peace. 'We should never seek to dictate what is best for the Israelis and their security interests. No Israeli Prime Minister should ever feel dragged to or blocked from the negotiating table by the United States,' Mr. Obama said. 'When I am president, the United States will stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel,' Mr. Obama told the National Jewish Democratic Council in February of 2007.

'Those who have worked with me in Chicago in the state Legislature and now in the United States Senate will testify that I have not just talked the talk, I have walked the walk when it comes to Israel's security. I think it is fundamental. I think it is something that is in the interests of the United States because of our special relationship, because Israel has not only established a democracy in the region but has been a stalwart ally of ours,' Mr. Obama said to the NJDC. 'The United States government and an Obama Presidency cannot ask Israel to take risks with respect to its security.'

Aaron - what treatments did you have prior to surgery? The problem with the outside of your feet seems to sometimes occur after surgery. They may be able to help by adjusting your orthodic. Do a search on 'lateral column pain' 'cuboid syndrome'. The treatments include PT, joint manipulations, orthodic adjustment, etc. You need to talk to your pod or surgeon about this ASAP

Hi,
I had PF surgery in both feet 4 months ago. I continue to have pain in both feet and particularly toward the outside edge of the feet. Also, about a week after the surgery, I began to develop what my be a neuroma in both feet toward the toes. Has anyone had this happen to them or does anyone know what I can do to fix it. I've tried physical therapy, injections, stretching, and nothing has worked so far.

At our wits end View Thread

It's been a long time since I've posted, but I'm back writing about my husband's feet. It's been almost 5 years of heel pain in BOTH feet, 3 ESWT treatments, every conservative treatment known to man, 11 doctors (orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists, chiropractor, rhumo doc) and most recently, TOPAZ on both feet one week ago. We aren't expecting miracles from this but at this point he hurts worse than before the surgery.

This latest doctor, which is in fact the first one he saw years ago, says he has short heels and that is what causes the heel pain. He says he has to get into shoes with heels. Problem is my husbands pain is so severe when he tries new shoes he can't do it. He's been wearing soft custom orthotics and Brook's Beast for about 3 years now. Add to that his size 15 feet and he's limited.

He doesn't have the 'standard' PF pain. No pain in the morning but cannot stand more than 30 seconds without heel pain kicking in. It gets better and sometimes goes away ONLY when he sits with his feet up. He works on concrete so we know this is most likely what caused it.

I guess I'm just looking for answers and venting a little. His doctor said it might be three weeks before his orthotics and shoes, or any shoe for that matter, would feel okay for him. Does the TOPAZ take some time to heal? He feels like he's gone backwards and is just losing hope. Is there ANYTHING else this could be? He has no spur and his arthritis 'test' came back negative. I think we've done everything there is to do and his life is just miserable at this point.

I have been readin g some of the postings on this site and I was wondering if anyone can confirm simular symptons. I believe I am experiencing Tarcal Tunnel Syndrome. My ankles have never been strong and have in the past been a runner with painful results each time, shin splints, stress fractors. I am an over pronator and I have used orthotics with little success. I have had xrays that show no fractors, but I am experiencing pain just under my ankles on both sides. Some days are worse than others. Walking doen,t hurt that much but standing for a longtime does hurt. Also shoes that touch the area around the area seem to make it worse. Hot tub usually makes the ball of the foot feel swollen. I also have been experiencing significant pain in the ball of my foot to the forward near the toes, moving from the center to the outside of the foot it burns, it is painful and or tingly. I have been diagnosed in the past with chronic tibial stress syndrome and also some type of muscle shortening disorder. I am currently going to see a surgeon and wondering what I can do to determine if what I have is Tarsal Syndrome an what treatments work. Ibuprophin isn,t working anymore. My family has a history of Gout which could be suspect.

Sharon:

The first thing that need be determined is if the scar tissue is the problem and, if not, what is. I am not a big fan of surgeries to remove scar tissue. Ask the practitioner proposing that what will keep the scar tissue removed from re-forming. If scar tissue is indeed the issue, then an option that I favor is 'dissolving' the scar tissue via injections of the enzyme, hyaluronidase, possibly mixed with a very small amount of triamcinolone acetonide and a local anesthetic.

Re: Offshore Drilling View Thread

'The Democrats in Congress and Obama said 'NO'!'

It will be up to the coastal states......So lets see what those coastal governors and elected officials are saying. California, New Jersey, North Carolina are nos, Florida, South Carolina,Virginia are a maybe, Alaska and Mississippi say ok, And will it make our prices go down or just give oil companies higher profit. Can Bush and McCain promise lower gas prices? Will they put it in writing? As I stated earlier many coastal states depend on the tourist industry and do not want the oil rigs. They will resist. If it passes many states will not allow it irregardless of Bush or McCain or any other Republican.

Now as it so happens I support additional offshore drilling so I sort of pay attention to those little details.

http://www.presstelegram.com/ci_9622954?source=rss
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger disagrees with calls by President Bush and Republican presidential candidate John McCain to lift a ban on new oil drilling in coastal waters, his office said Wednesday.

Schwarzenegger has endorsed McCain's presidential bid but remains opposed to new drilling off the California coastline, spokesman Aaron McLear said. A federal moratorium has been in place for 27 years.

http://www.myfoxla.com/myfox/pages/News/Detail?contentId=6799463&version=7&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=TSTY&pageId=3.2.1
Long Beach -- Governors in some coastal states promised to block attempts to tap offshore petroleum reserves, citing concerns about the environment and tourism. Others agreed with President Bush's call to lift a 27-year-old federal ban on offshore drilling but said states should decide whether to allow it.

Crist said he didn't know if Florida legislators would approve drilling, but like McCain he said states should be allowed to make their own decisions. McCain favors lifting the moratorium at the federal level, but allowing states to decide whether to allow drilling.

States should be able to control their own destiny with what happens,' said Joel Sawyer, a spokesman for South Carolina Republican Gov. Mark Sanford.
The state has 'to be incredibly cognizant of our tourism industry and our other natural resources along the coast. We don't want to kill the goose that laid the golden egg,' he said.

I have TSS and had surgery on my left foot 1 year ago with great results. Only when I stand at my work for long periods of time does it really flare up again. I had my right foot done 3 months after the left, I developed a lot of scar tissue in the right foot right away and also had alot of swelling from the beginning. I went to PT right away for 3 months to reduce the swelling and break up the scar tissue. I did not feel it was doing much good and decided to end it and 'live with it' But now here I am in as much pain as I was I was prior to surgery,burning on the inside of the ankle and down to the sole of the foot. I went back to my dr. and she sent me back to pt. and told me that it takes as long a year to feel better. I am getting very frustrated and I don't think pt will work but am willing to try again. My Pt thought that I should have a second surgery on my foot to get ride of the scar tissue because it needs to be cleaned up and released again. I work on my feet as a floral manager for 8-10 hours a day on a concrete floor in a store and I need to start to feel better. I have the orthotics, and my left foot feels okay, so I am coming up on 1 year in 2 months and still no relief. Any advice??? Should I find a new doctor or give this doctor a chance. I only have one body and I want to start feeling better Thanks

Plantar Fibroma, fibromyalgia and cryosurgery View Thread
Posted by Sharon M on 4/19/08 at 13:35

After putting it off until my discomfort became really obvious to me, I finally received an official diagnosis of a plantar fibroma on my left foot. There also appears to be the beginning of one on the bottom of my right foot. 7 years ago I had bunion surgery on my right toe. My left foot mirrored the pain I had in recovery. Crazy.

I have fibromyalgia and burning and tingling in my legs and feet nearly all the time which try to ignore for the most part. My foot dr gave me a night boot to try (I can wear it most of the night until my foot starts to ache and cramp), showed me stretches, suggested cortisone shots next and then full surgery if that didn't work. She does not believe in cryo surgery for this. From what I've read, surgery would definitely not work for me (I've never really gotten my fibromyalgia back under control since the bunion surgery), and the shots are pretty much a waste of time too. I imagine, since they are also invasive, I would not react well to them.

Any luck with cryo surgery on FM patients? Would you recommend I wait to see if it gets bigger or try fixing it when it's fairly small? Is there a dr. who does cryo surgery for this in the Orlando FL area?

Helen, most surgeons who treat Tarsal Tunnel do so by only releasing the Tibial Nerve in the Tarsal Tunnel. When it is done at a Dellon Institute, the three main branches of the Tibial Nerve and the Calacanneal Tunnel and Medial and Lateral Plantar Tunnels are all released as well, all thru the same small incision. There is a free booklet at http://www.Dellon.com with illustrations showing how this surgery is done. I do work for The Dellon Institutes, but I am also a former patient. I had bi-lateral Tarsal Tunnel surgery done by Dr. Dellon in 1998 and 1999. I have been retested annually with the amazing Pressure-Specified Sensory Device (PSSD) that Dr. Dellon developed in collaboration with an aerospace engineer. None of my symptoms of pain, tingling, and eventually numbness have shown any signs of returning. My incisions were not 'S' curves as described by Dottie whom you responded to. The are only about 3 inches long and end an inch above the heel/arch. Life after surgery is great!

I'm afraid I don't know how to work message boards well, hope this is correct. As a follow-up to previous message, sae the family doctor today who took an x-ray and saw nothing, but my opinion of where the pain is was a little incorrect. He pushed down in the middle of the top of the foot and the pain shot forward toward the toes....and believe me, pain. The numbness and tingly is all over the top of the foot. The doctor has now sent me to an orthopedic doctor which my husband doesn't understand because he said it has to be a nerve problem and an orthopedic doctor is a bone doctor and I have no idea, I just do what a doctor tells me to do.......in the meantime, can you give me an opinion? Thank you, SharonS

I hAVE THIS AND YOU NEED TO FIND A PODIATRIST THAT USES SCLEROSING ALCOHOL INJECTIONS. This has been done for 5-6 years and they are having good success. I had 1 cortizone shot that didn't help and then you take the 10 injections (and these don't hurt). I am on vacation now in Colo. and before leaving home had called a podiatrist here but they didn't do it and referred me to someone that did.

Just call around and you will find someone or they will know of someone.

Wishing you the best

Pain, numbness, tingly View Thread
Posted by SharonS on 8/30/07 at 17:56

I have a spot on top of the foot, directly under the 3 & 4 toes (somewhere around the joint, that hurts when small pressure is applied (as in slipping on a pair of shoes). This began about 4 weeks ago. When touched, this area, and practically the entire top of the foot is numb and tingly. In addition, on the front of that leg, I noticed the veins are starting to pop out (can only see in certain lighting)similar to veiricose (sp?) veins. I also have, on both feet, pea sized 'cyst-like) white balls, around 10-15 on each foot- these have had for years and they have mostly moved to the back of the heel. What type doctor should I see? I'm thinking nerve or circulatory problems and would like to have 'fixed' before winter shoe season comes. Thank you so much for any advice you can give.

I would concentrate entirely on losing weight. Protien and good fats only, swimming for exercise. No sugar, alcohol, or other carbohydrates. If that doesn't work, I'd see a doctor about one of the stomach surgeries. For now, pinnacle and tape may help.

My gosh, what a perfect word, Dr. Wedemeyer. View Thread
Posted by Tim M. on 8/23/07 at 16:12

I've always filed away the definition of 'paronomasia' as a synonym, a 10-dollar substitute, for 'pun.' Your usage caused me to stop and check the etymology of 'pun' and I broke into laughter when I discovered it is believed to be from the Italian 'puntiglio' ('fine point, quibble,' a LOT of that going on in this thread on the subject of 'orthotic').

If that is true then 'paronomasia' is related to 'punctilio,' which is: 'careful observance of forms (as in social conduct),' and 'a minute detail of conduct in a ceremony or in observance of a code.' This is very close to what I have previously referred to as 'lexical proscription.'

What fun!

I would add that most professions (DPM, C.Ped., C.O.) are fairly more standard when they describe a functional device. The vast majority of P.T.'s and D.C.'s use the term orthotic to define an insert even from a library (which some would argue can be functional). The bottom line is the industry is not very standardized except with respect to a prescription device to control motion of the STJ.

As for your bent for paronomasia Tim, I am inclined to enjoy it as well.

Hi: I want to revisit the Post Op Guide question that all posters at one time or another have. I went back in a rather thick folder as I copy many questions and answers that pertain to me or are of interest. To much time (retired you know)! Go to history and pull up Sharon W 8-26-03 and same name on 8-27-03. The format of questions for your Doctor are great and it is well written. This is the type of document I would liked to have. I hope this inspires someone to do a universal quideline for TTS patients.

Hi Sharon,

As you may have guessed by now there is little that will help in the short term. It sounds like the steroid shot did not help you the second time around but you may want to give it another shot.......no pun intended. :) Here are some tips to help you cope but they may not relive the pain immediately. Try massaging the foot but stazy away from direc tly massaging the tarsal area. I also had massage for my calves and thighs. Ice the tarsal area at with frozen peas for a few minutes.afterwards. When you are out definately use a wheel chair or scooter. I found a used wheel chair in the paper and it made going out a real treat once again. Sometimes those little emotional lifts can make a huge difference. Distraction from pain is very helpful. I sewed about 22 throw pillows and made several small terrium gardens as I could not garden outside. It helped me focus on omething else other then my feet. I wore compression socks. For whatever reason it helped. I was not able to tolerate my orthotics but had immediate relief when I begain wearing birkenstocks.........suggest soft heal bed Arizonas. Try to do some non weight bearing exercises and stretches. It's amazing how those unused muscles wither away while your sitting still. I could not tolerate celebrex or viox. It appears they hindered my recovery because I had several mini strokes while I was on them. Instead I took neurontin nd a small dose of elavil. It took several months to feel the affects so it may not help you get you through til your appt. Vitamin B. Good luck to you!!!

I was diagnosed with plantar fasc. about a year ago. I have been wearing orthotics, taking Celebrex, stretching my calves, and had two steroid shots. The first shot got rid of the pain for 3 months and then it came back. Then I got another shot and it didn't have any effect. At that time my Dr. thought it could be tarsal tunnel and did a nerve test. She said it was some nerve (I didn't catch the name) and made an appt. with a surgeon in the orthopedic group. It will still be another 5 weeks before I can see the surgeon and the pain in my right heel is constant. I have some numbness and burning, but the pain to walk is my biggest complaint. Is there anything to try instead of surgery, or to get some relief until surgery? Thank you for any help.

Rick:

The psychologic mechanism of 'denial' is a strong one. I agree that the parallels to the 1930's are startling but, unfortunately, a large percentage of the population would prefer to ignore the warnings, cross their fingers and engage in wishful thinking that all conflicts are due to some misunderstandings that can be worked out through 'meaningful' discussions. There is a bit too much 'preaching to the choir' with regards to this dilemma as too many just do not want to face the facts.

In support of their research or preparation of this manuscript, one or more authors received grants or outside funding from the Research Designated Fund of the New York Physical Therapy Association. None of the authors received payments or other benefits or a commitment or agreement to provide such benefits from a commercial entity. No commercial entity paid or directed, or agreed to pay or direct, any benefits to any research fund, foundation, educational institution, or other charitable or nonprofit organization with which the authors are affiliated or associated.

Background: Approximately 10% of patients with plantar fasciitis have development of persistent and often disabling symptoms. A poor response to treatment may be due, in part, to inappropriate and nonspecific stretching techniques. We hypothesized that patients with chronic plantar fasciitis who are managed with the structure-specific plantar fascia-stretching program for eight weeks have a better functional outcome than do patients managed with a standard Achilles tendon-stretching protocol.

Methods: One hundred and one patients who had chronic proximal plantar fasciitis for a duration of at least ten months were randomized into one of two treatment groups. The mean age was forty-six years. All patients received prefabricated soft insoles and a three-week course of celecoxib, and they also viewed an educational video on plantar fasciitis. The patients received instructions for either a plantar fascia tissue-stretching program (Group A) or an Achilles tendon-stretching program (Group B). All patients completed the pain subscale of the Foot Function Index and a subject-relevant outcome survey that incorporated generic and condition-specific outcome measures related to pain, function, and satisfaction with treatment outcome. The patients were reevaluated after eight weeks.

Results: Eighty-two patients returned for follow-up evaluation. With the exception of the duration of symptoms (p < 0.01), covariates for baseline measures revealed no significant differences between the groups. The pain subscale scores of the Foot Function Index showed significantly better results for the patients managed with the plantar fascia-stretching program with respect to item 1 (worst pain; p = 0.02) and item 2 (first steps in the morning; p = 0.006). Analysis of the response rates to the outcome measures also revealed significant differences with respect to pain, activity limitations, and patient satisfaction, with greater improvement seen in the group managed with the plantar fascia-stretching program.

Conclusions: A program of non-weight-bearing stretching exercises specific to the plantar fascia is superior to the standard program of weight-bearing Achilles tendon-stretching exercises for the treatment of symptoms of proximal plantar fasciitis. These findings provide an alternative option to the present standard of care in the nonoperative treatment of patients with chronic, disabling plantar heel pain.

Level of Evidence: Therapeutic study, Level I-1a (randomized controlled trial [significant difference]). See Instructions to Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.

How sad that Scott R has gotten his panties in bunch again and changed the name on my post to that of the doctor he is paronoid over. As I had predicted, he accuses me too of being other people. Who would have thought? Quite obviously his knowledge of the internet and how proxies work and how free and easily availbe they are is limited, if, in fact, he hasn't simply made up the whole thing to start with. It seems to me that he should maybe get a job instead of hovering over a computer all day on a site which is less interested in medical information than it is in the socializing of those who have notthing better to do than __ and complain to each other about how unsuccessful their doctors have been with them. In my reading around this site I have found only one or two doctors who seem to know what they are talking about, and one is the doctor he chooses to attack, although the regulars whose names appear over and over again don't seem to know the difference. So maybe the goal here is mediocrity. At any rate, there is not a whole lot to be gotten here and I suppose that's the way he wants it.

I heard some news this morning that happened in December but got little to no coverage at the time. The news item said that in December US Attorney General summarily and without cause removed seven US Attorneys using a little-known provision of the (so-called) 'Patriots Act' enabling him to do this. It was said that there was no performance-based reason for firing any of the seven but that some things are known about the people fired and the replacements he installed. The replacement he put into the position in Arkansas was described as a friend/protege of Karl Rove. The person fired in San Diego had been the lead and strong prosecutor in the corruption and scandal case of Randall Cunningham, and the case is not yet finished - even though Cunningham is down for the count.
The other part of this story is that this new process, used in these Gonzales firings for the first time, enables this kind of peremptory strong-arm tactic without any Congressional oversight at all. Kick out the people prosecuting (not persecuting, larrym, prosecuting) your cronies and put in your pals who won't be so quick to prosecute corruption next time around. I am reading regularly that one historian, pundit and analyst after another is naming this administration as THE most corrupt and debauched in American history. They put robber barons and tea-pot dome crookery to shame.

I also heard that there was a fairly sizable demonstration of the women wearing pink anti-war group (name escapes me at the moment)heckling Hillary Clinton at last month's 'audition' of the Democratic presidential candidates. Other than an anti-war stance, I do not know their politics as a group, but they were protesting Clinton's vote for the war. To hear Clinton say 'we did not know....we did not have the facts....if we knew then what we know now....' is just dishonest. She did know. We ALL knew, for cryin' out loud, and they - Senators - knew more than the rest of us! So she is not telling the truth. Obama did not have to make that vote but he has opposed the invasion from the beginning. Dennis Kucinich, opposed from the beginning. Edwards? - Well, hard to get past a 28,000 square foot house..... who NEEDS a 28,000 sq. ft. house?! Nobody.

Anybody see The Colbert Report (satire, folks, parody.....funny, funny, funny) when he interviews a Ms.?Diane? Deborah? Dickerson, author of 'The End of Blackness' about Obama, about being black, being African-American, being white, etc., etc........ ohmygosh! I was falling off my chair laughing. It was the best illustration of how utterly absurd it has all become that I have ever seen. Catch it if you can. He is completely irreverant and outrageous and brilliantly funny - and he plays a CHARACTER, not himself.

Re: 3 Helicopters lost in Iraq since Jan 1 View Thread
Posted by Dorothy on 1/30/07 at 15:32

Yes, I think we should bring the troops home now. Why? First of all because we illegally and irrationally INVADED a sovreign nation, and have occupied it ever since. We didn't like Hussein, that is true, but how long had he been a tyrant in power there? DECADES! How much of that time did we ARM and SUPPORT him? Almost all of it.

Do you actually think we should happily support U.S. government actions that violate all that OUR country stands for? Just because Bush/Cheney acted on their imperialistic/robber baron tendencies and invaded another country,and in so doing, threw it into chaos and destruction, should we then prolong the death and destruction of their ill-conceived actions in order to make them look good? What other reason is there for that argument? Continuing to permit our military citizens to be killed in order to endorse some nebulous "can't cut and run" mentality is barbaric and insane.

We - that is Bush/Cheney - should stage one of those serious, somber "address to the nation" events and they should say something like: we have been in serious talks and analyses; we have consulted with our allies and with our own intelligence and military; we have reviewed all past and potential plans and we have concluded that we made a grave mistake by invading Iraq. We are withdrawing our military troops. We will be in discussions about providing aid - a type of Marshall Plan - to Iraq to help repair the damage done by these conflicts. We will attempt to marshal NATO, UN or whatever forces can be engaged to promote peace and an atmosphere where reconstruction can occur. We toppled a despot for the Iraquis, a despot that we greatly regret ever suppporting. We will do what we reasonably can to help Iraq become a prosperous, free member of modern society, but they will now have to make their own journey to nationhood. Our military have performed with courage and persistence and we will now bring them home where they can rebuild their own lives and reenter American life. We will then begin the process of reestablishing trust and integrity and new frontiers on our own soil.
A statement along those lines is what they could say.

You have said two things to me recently, john h: you earlier said we are in a "war on terror" and today you said "what is our goal?"
I ask you: what IS a war on terror? Who do you fight? When do you win? An honest "war on terror" inspects at borders, on planes, and the like. An honest "war on terror" does not ignore legitimate warnings coming from one's own internal intelligence! I believe that 9/11 was ALLOWED to happen and I believe that Iraq had NOTHING to do with 9/11 but everything to do with hidden agendas on this administration's part. And I ask you: what is our goal NOW, with troops there?
Soldier after soldier after soldier who gets interviewed says, in various ways, that they have no idea what we are doing there. What are we doing there, john? Your argument, and the argument that is being put forward by that "stay the course" kind of thinking seems to be: we are there because we are there and we must stay there and keep dying and killing because we are there.

I will tell you why I think this administration has put Americans there, like sitting ducks, for no legitimate purpose: I think it was (at first) to take over Iraq - and I think they thought they could and that they thought it was quite all right if they did; they are arrogant beyond all precedent. The second reason was to establish a staging area to attack Iran and Syria. Even today, Bush is saber rattling against Iran. Even if you think that attacking Iran is justified, john h, do you think we have the manpower to do that? Do you think this beleaguered force of literally over-extended fighters - so many National Guard, for crying out loud! - can actually fight everywhere, all the time, without end - and just because Bush/Cheney have designs on world domination? And even if you like Bush/Cheney and even if the idea of world domination appeals to you, do you actually think that world domination can be achieved? They learned that they can't even dominate Baghdad, even certain neighborhoods. Now they could, as history has shown, level an entire city - or even an entire nation; they did so in Japan, twice. Do you want that done to a country that has LITERALLY done NOTHING to this country? Which country will be next for that kind of annihilition? How many countries? How many of our cities and states are you willing to sacrifice in that kind of maniacal battle?

A war-making mentality too often can see only way - war. You often lecture me as if you think I am naive, but you misjudge me. I am not at all naive. I don't think that peace will "just happen" and I am not against all war. I think WWII was just and had to be fought, without a doubt in my mind. I can't think of any other war that is true of, however, except possibly the Civil War.

Do you think Bush/Cheney would hesitate to bankrupt this nation - in manpower and other treasure - to achieve their ends? What are their ends, or as you put it, what is the goal? Democracy is a notion of western civilization, a beautiful notion but not one that can just be imposed on geopolitical entities. In fact, that in itself is anti-democratic! We imposed democracy on Japan but we did so only because Japan was so thoroughly defeated and could be occupied, and U.S. sentiment supported throughly defeating Japan because of Japanese aggression against AMERICA! The atrocities that Sadam Husseim committed against Iraquis occurred many, many years ago and WHEN they happened, we stood by and watched and did NOTHING! In fact, we encouraged a resistance movement and the Kurds and then we ABANDONED them to torture and death!! That is what we did. So it cannot be that way and now it is all about the noble U.S. We were not noble about Iraq, not in any way! We have used and misused Iraq for decades. So, now we have done Iraq a "favor" (actually Bush's issues about Daddy and simplistic notions about people and Cheney's issues about power and greed were favored but in the process the Iraquis had a tyrant deposed)and Hussein is gone. I think Bush/Cheney - for once could do something that actually is in "support of the troops" -could go on TV and say: we got rid of your tyrant; we tried to help you join the free world. You don't want us there and we are not an occupying force. We are bringing our people home. We want to help you, just as we help other nations, but our military work there is done.

Yes, that is what I think could be done. That would take guts though.

By the way, when all logic is thrown out the window by people who try to defend their support for this invasion, they never want to talk about all the other nations in the world that have despotic tyrannical rulers who kill and plunder, peoples that might also want to try "democracy" Bush-style. Do you think we should do this Iraq thing for all of them? If so, how? If not, why not?

Last question: if another nation's military invaded our nation, what do you think we should do? Shouldn't all loyal Americans do everything we can do resist and destroy the invaders? Would all those Americans then be called "insurgents"?

Posted by Sharon B on 1/13/07 at 13:13

I've posted here before, but it's been awhile. My husband has been dealing with what we've been told is PF by 6 doctors since Nov. 03. (one told him he needed major reconstuctive surgery because his heels are too short and he has high arches) He's had THREE Ossatron procedures, the last being October 27. This one is making his feet worse instead of better. He had some success with the second one, but then they began to get worse again.

We are beginning to wonder if they've missed something. He has had x-rays and a ct scan, but no MRI. He has no morning heel pain, it takes a few hours, sometimes less, for his heels to start burning. But once they do, nothing stops it until he gets home and gets his feet up. It used to take them hours to feel better after that, but now relief is pretty quick. Walking and especially standing hurt him the most. He cannot stand for even a minute. He tried ALL the pf treatments, short of surgery, and nothing has helped.

I read a post below about someone with similar symptoms and they were told it is possible nerve entrapment. We are about ready to start over with the doctors and not sure which type to go with. We've seen 3 podiatrists and 3 ortho surgeons, and a chiropractor, forgot about that one. Should we find a different podiatrist and ask them about nerve entrapment? It seems one doctor tapped on the sides of his feet to see if there was tingling and there wasn't, so he said it wasn't the nerves. He is just so frustrated with it all.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

john h -

Auto workers' (and other) union accomplishments are often made the scapegoat for business (or other) problems. I will freely grant that unions are not free of corruption and greedy self-interest; not by a long shot. But they have also brought middle-class prosperity to labor and the families of those workers. And if you compare those hard-won benefits to the pay and perks of CEOs and other high-level corporate entities, they pale. If you compare their health care to the health care enjoyed by the president and all members of Congress, they pale. Do you not think that those outrageous CEO and related salaries are also reflected in the cost of automobiles? In less than one century,after hundreds of years of virtual enslavement, the relationships between "labor and management" changed; labor in this country went from being little more than serfs in persistent indebtedness and impoverishment working for robber barons to being middle-class workers with decent standards of living - owning homes, buying cars and other consumer goods, sending kids to college, and so on. Health improvements ensued, too, with health care coverage being an increasingly negotiated feature of labor contracts. Why was that? Because it is so doggone expensive and hard to get! It was not health care benefits that has killed/is killing the U.S. automobile industry - and I grieve and mourn about that, as a matter of fact, in spite of their many sins - it was things like the truly evil NAFTA agreements, the auto execs'and stockholders' short-sightedness and greed, and now, in my opinion, their intentions to transfer those health care costs onto the federal government(which means you and me) - without any concomitant reduction in their own personal wealth! By the way, we drive Ford products and have for about 30 years and think that Ford has gotten a bad rap in the press and popular opinion. The Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable were/are great automobiles that, in reality but not in myth, can hold their own with any Japanese car.
As for health care - I have long been a proponent of single-payer, universal health care. Hillary did NOT advocate that, although myth holds that she did. Those plans she was supposedly working on seemed primarily to be the work of people intent on protecting the interests of the insurance industry, major donors to her and Bill, while ostensibly always, always looking out for "the children". Children - and adults - do best when the adults have good jobs with good benefits for their labor! However, as more recent versions and interpretations of universal health care are emerging, it is not what I advocate. These new versions seem more likely to continue to foster poor health care and health care coverage, while enriching insurance companies, stockholders, doctors, and CEOs - while everyone else, other than the most affluent with the greatest access, suffers the consequences. When Ford Motor Co. and major insurance companies start to "promote" government sponsored health care coverage, you can just watch and anticipate the latest transfer of wealth from your wallet to the wallets of CEOs, in this case of the insurance and auto industries.
You read the stories of people on this website, people who suffer not only the agony of their various health problems, but the added agony of dealing with doctors (if they have one), with access to proper doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, employers and so on. The auto workers' contracts gave workers some balance of power in the marketplace of health care coverage, but that is fast disappearing. With Wal-Mart being the largest employer and no health care coverage on the one hand and Ford and GM failing and whining about health care coverage of their workers on the other (while CEO pay and perks keep growing), that disappearing is happening fast.
You can add cost to automobiles or you can add cost to tax bills; either way, you will pay for Ford, GM, IBM, and on and on, to continue to enrich the top, move to poorer and poorer countries for labor - while blaming U.S. labor for wanting "Cadillac" health care coverage and "causing" all these woes. We are only starting to see the modern version of the consequences of greed. It took less than a century for a semblance of a balance of power to occur - just a semblance - it probably won't take that long for its demise. Some years hence we will be able to compare conditions under the old way and the newly emerging way. Maybe a better system will emerge but I don't think we know what it will be yet. HMOs, PPOs and such SEEMED like such a good idea at their inception, but then greed reestablished itself as the driving force and HMOs and PPOs and such ARE a big part of the problem they were established to eliminate. I have several doctor friends and to a person, they are wealthy beyond belief. They enjoy "lifestyles" that most of us cannot imagine. I happen to think it is wrong for the Ford and GM CEOs and doctors and hospital CEOs and insurance company CEOs to be wealthy beyond belief, for the president and Congress to have the best quality health care on YOUR dime, while so many Americans really, truly struggle with health care issues - whether it's getting it or paying for it. So I find it very disingenuous to blame the autoworkers' unions - they are one little cog in a very big, very shiney wheel.

In an effort to continue to present both sides in response to one sided constant postings I offer additonal links that present both points of view and some that are opposite of other's presented here. I can relate to some of these articles as I was defamed for simply wishing to listen to BOTH sides.

Here are some links with a short quote from each one.....I did not get these off Free Republic or any other bias type of site.

http://www.gloucestertimes.com/opinion/local_story_363094606?keyword=topstory
From the reaction to his latest book, "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," you'd think former President Jimmy Carter had poked a stick in a hornets' nest. While the book has been well-received elsewhere, its provocative title (which is all most of his critics appear to have read) has stirred up outrage and condemnation among the organizations and their spokespeople who champion American support for Israel at any cost and are quick to label anyone an anti-Semitic liar who questions Israel's actions.

This link is more of a rant then an objective point of view but worth a read.
http://www.clevelandjewishnews.com/articles/2006/12/27/news/local/acover1222.txt
But not every Jewish voice is raised against Carter's Palestine. Clevelander Alan Federman, a member of Tikkun, dismisses criticisms by Foxman/Dershowitz/et al. “I would encourage people to read Carter's book with an open mind,”

From the Jerusalem Post titled: Why Jimmy Carter is not an anti-Semite
http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1164881982714&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull
But with the publication of Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, his ignorant rant against Israel, many in the American Jewish community believe that Carter is not just a loser but an anti-Semite. I disagree.

Jimmy Carter is not so much anti-Semite as anti-intellectual, not so much a Jew-hater as a boor. The real explanation behind his limitless hostility to Israel is a total lack of any moral understanding.

The Ludicrous Attacks on Jimmy Carter's Book by NORMAN FINKELSTEIN
http://www.counterpunch.org/finkelstein12282006.html
The shrill reaction to Carter's mention of apartheid is probably due not only to the term's emotive resonances but its legal-political implications as well. According to Additional Protocol I to the 1949 Geneva Conventions as well as the Statute of the International Criminal Court, "practices of apartheid" constitute war crimes. Small wonder, then, that despite--or, rather, because of--its aptness, Carter is being bullied into repudiating the term.

A Palestinian view of Jimmy Carter's book
http://www.zmag.org/content/showarticle.cfm?SectionID=15&ItemID=11729
The 39th president of the United States, the most successful Arab- Israeli peace negotiator to date, has braved a storm of criticism, including the insinuation from the pro-Israel Anti-Defamation League that his arguments are anti-Semitic.

------------.
http://www.uruknet.de/?p=m29297
...in reference to the segregation of Palestinians by Israel's apartheid wall, Carter writes (with a straight face I assume), "I have made it clear that the motivation is not racism but the desire of a minority of Israelis to confiscate and colonize choice sites in Palestine, and then to forcefully suppress any objections from the displaced citizens."
This statement is breathtakingly surreal. We are expected to believe that even though the segregation of Palestinians in the West Bank is based solely on their racial and ethnic origin, somehow this particular version of apartheid isn't racism. Instead, it's only the confiscation and colonization of their land and resources.

Judging a Book by Its Cover and Its Content
A review of “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid” by Jimmy Carter
(Simon & Schuster, November 2006)
Posted: November 13, 2006

By Abraham H. Foxman

One should never judge a book by its cover, but in the case of former President Jimmy Carter’s latest work, “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid”, we should make an exception. All one really needs to know about this biased account is found in the title.

It is truly shocking, at a time of Islamic extremism running rampant, of suicide bombs polluting cities in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, of Iran publicly stating its desire to wipe Israel off the map and building nuclear weapons to achieve that end, of the missile and rocket attacks by Hezbollah and Hamas on Israel, that Jimmy Carter can to a large degree only see Israel as the party responsible for conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

In some ways, Carter’s book reminds me of the outlandish paper on “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy” by professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, though he doesn’t go to their extremes. Like them, his examination of almost every issue concerning the conflict results in blaming Israel for most or all of what has gone wrong.

Listen to his conclusions: “Israel’s continued control and colonization of Palestinian land have been the primary obstacles to a comprehensive peace agreement in the Holy Land.” And, “The bottom line is this: Peace will come to Israel and the Middle East only when the Israeli government is willing to comply with international law, with the road map for peace…”.

In order to reach such a simplistic and distorted view of the region, Carter has to ignore or downplay the continuing examples of Palestinian rejection of Israel and terrorism, which have been part of the equation from the beginning and which are strong as ever today. He has to minimize or condemn all the instances of Israel’s peace offers and withdrawals, most particularly former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak’s initiative at Camp David in 2000, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s disengagement from Gaza in 2005 and current Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s campaign pledge to withdraw from the West Bank. And he has to frame every example of Palestinian distress as simply the product of Israeli repression instead of Palestinian extremism, e.g., the economic condition of the Palestinians, which has much to do with the continued terrorism against Israel.

Much as in the paper of Mearsheimer and Walt, one doesn’t have to be a pro-Israel advocate to recognize that the issues in the long conflict are a lot more complicated than Ca

And he has to frame every example of Palestinian distress as simply the product of Israeli repression instead of Palestinian extremism, e.g., the economic condition of the Palestinians, which has much to do with the continued terrorism against Israel.

Much as in the paper of Mearsheimer and Walt, one doesn’t have to be a pro-Israel advocate to recognize that the issues in the long conflict are a lot more complicated than Carter would portray. It’s particularly revealing, that at a time when even many Arab leaders are recognizing the destructive and dangerous policies of the Palestinians, Carter can hardly bring himself to speak to such matters.

It is not the goals that Carter seeks that are so troubling -- he calls for a two-state solution, with Palestinians and Israelis living securely in two states, which, of course, is the policy of Israel -- but his obsession with blaming Israel for these goals not being achieved.

The problem with this approach is two-fold. He unjustly encourages Israel-bashers around the world. The legitimizing factor of being able to quote a former President of the United States and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize cannot be overestimated.

Secondly, this gives comfort to the extremists on the Palestinian side who are reinforced in their extremism by this kind of “analysis.” In the end, it is the Palestinians themselves who are hurt by such a biased approach because they become even further entrenched in their illusions about weakening Israel and the need not to change.

As disturbing as Carter’s simplistic approach is, however, even more disturbing is his picking up on the Mearsheimer -Walt theme of Jewish control of American policy, though in much more abbreviated form and not being the focus of his work. Referring to U.S. policy and the “condoning” of Israel’s actions, Carter says: “There are constant and vehement political and media debates in Israel concerning its policies in the West Bank but because of powerful political, economic, and religious forces in the U.S., Israeli government decisions are rarely questioned or condemned, voices from Jerusalem dominate our media, and most American citizens are unaware of circumstances in the occupied territories.” In other words, the old canard and conspiracy theory of Jewish control of the media, Congress, and the U.S. government is rearing its ugly head in the person of a former President.

It is sad that Mr. Carter would attempt to use his influence in this way. It is dangerous because he will be used by elements that want to undermine support for Israel in this country.

Ultimately, we have faith in the good sense, fairness and understanding of the American people. They know that life in the Middle East is much more complicated and will require seeing all sides of the issue, something President Carter doesn’t seem to be interested in doing.

The moment the US and UK pull out Iran moves in. There goal is to control oil flow in the Persin Gulf where 25% of the world oil flows. They have flotillas of high speed attack boats armed with very effective missles that can play havoc on shipping. It is believed that they may have as many as 1000 and they also have some high speed catamarons they bought from China.They supplied Helbalah with a guided missle that hit an Israeli boat in the recent conflict in Lebanon. They would not stand a chance against the US and UK in an all out conflict but that's not their plan. Their plan is to present the ability to cause considerable chaos to the regions oil supply and subsequently the worlds economy. They are the most significant danger at the prsent time and to leave Iraq under it's prent chaos is a mistake.

Iraq has met the criteria........ View Thread
Posted by marie on 11/28/06 at 16:16

Well the situation in Iraq has met the criteria of a civil war definition. And to be honest, irregardless of what you call it...........it's a mess and our troops are in the middle of it.

Scholars agree Iraq meets definition of 'civil war'
It is put among the worst in 60 years
http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/11/26/news/civil.php

The common scholarly definition has two main criteria. The first says that the warring groups must be from the same country and fighting for control of the political center, control over a separatist state or to force a major change in policy. The second says that at least 1,000 people must have been killed, with at least 100 from each side.

Fearon and a colleague at Stanford, David Laitin, say the deaths per year in Iraq, with at least 50,000 reportedly killed since March 2003, place this conflict among the worst 20 civil wars of the past 60 years, on par with wars in Burundi and Bosnia.

Possible fake blog to get Foley?? View Thread
Posted by larrym on 10/05/06 at 06:08

This is very interesting. Supposedly the blog to get Foley may have been......................FAKE? I cant imagine that but there is new evidence that perhaps the page in question may have been 18 or age of consent. If so that would make Foley eligible to run as a dem for Pres in 08. I mean he would actually be a 2-fer since it was cool for Clinton to do it (just about sex and his private life, remember?) and him being gay would make him a poster child and a strong frontrunner for dems.

I think this proves how cold consevatives are. I mean I guy swaps naughty emails with young guys and we throw him under the bus. Why dont conservatives support him and instead blame the clergy, booze or anybody but Foley. Maybe we do need more compassion

Among the offices searched was that of Republican Senate President Ben Stevens, whose father is Alaska’s senior senator, who has reported collecting more than $240,000 in consulting fees from VECO since 2000. Ted Stevens’ spokesman Aaron Saunders said Friday he had no comment on the search.

Also searched were offices in both Juneau and Anchorage belonging to state Sen. John Cowdery, the Senate Rules chairman; Republican state Rep. Vic Kohring; Republican state Rep. Bruce Weyhrauch; Democratic state Sen. Donald Olson, and Republican state Rep. Pete Kott.

Personally, I would like to see....sm View Thread
Posted by Auntie on 9/07/06 at 08:56

development of alternative fuels continue no matter what gas prices are. I especially like the notion of solar power, and there has been a lot of improvement in the technology over the past few years. I read about it in Mother Earth News a lot. The idea of complete independence from the grid totally intrigues me. I guess I'm just an independent sort in general. I'd also like to build some kind of really different, energy-efficient home...cordwood construction really piques my interest, as do SIPs (structural insulated panels), although these are not as "natural" of a building method as cordwood.

Your statement, though, does give me pause, as I have wondered for a while if the high gas prices (which seem to spike every time some oil baron farts) are actually being manipulated somehow (I'm not smart enough to figure out how!) by extreme environmentalists in order to try to force the general public to cry out to the government for relief, therefore generating more interest in alternative fuels. I know that some of them are so dedicated to the cause that they would literally give their lives for it, so I don't think it's too far-fetched of an idea. :) For the record, I'm not a raving environmentalist...I guess I would be categorized as a conservative according to most people's definitions, but I still believe in being environmentally responsible to the best of our ability. I also love the outdoors and gardening (flowers right now, but would love to grow a lot of my own food someday), so I would like to see the land taken care of.

I swing back and forth from that to the theory that it's just greed, pure and simple, on the part of the oil companies, who have us "over a barrel", pun intended. I cannot discern any rhyme or reason behind the spikes (I hear their explanations, but somehow don't buy them). I do notice it goes up every time a holiday is coming up where people usually travel, and in the summer vacation time period, of course. This just spells greed to me. But maybe I'm just too simple-minded to understand all the ins and outs of the oil business. I am from the South, you know, and you know how Southerners are all dumb rednecks. :)

. Subject: German Editorial:

This is kind of long, but worth the time to read.>> >

If any of you still feel that this war on terror is a mistake, here
is an opinion from an unexpected source. It's fascinating that this should
come
out of Europe. Mathias Dapfner, Chief Executive of the huge German
publisher Axel Springer AG, has written a blistering attack in DIE
WELT,Germany's largest daily paper, against the timid reaction of
Europe in the face of the Islamic threat.

This is a must-read by all Americans. History may well certify its
correctness.

EUROPE - THY NAME IS COWARDICE
(Commentary by Mathias Dapfner CEO, Axel Springer, AG)

A few days ago Henry Broder wrote in Welt am Sonntag, Europe- your family
name is appeasement." It's a phrase you can't get out of your head because
it's so terribly true. Appeasement cost millions of Jews and non-Jews
their lives, as England and France, allies at the time, negotiated and
hesitated too long before they noticed that Hitler had to be fought, not
bound to toothless agreements.

Appeasement legitimized and stabilized Communism in the Soviet Union,then
East Germany, then all the rest of Eastern Europe, where for decades,
inhuman suppressive, murderous governments were glorified as the
ideologically correct alternative to all other possibilities.

Appeasement crippled Europe when genocide ran rampant in Kosovo, and
even though we had absolute proof of ongoing mass-murder, we Europeans
debated
and debated and debated, and were still debating when finally the Americans
had to come from halfway around the world, into Europe yet again, and do
our work for us.

Rather than protecting democracy in the Middle East, European Appeasement,
camouflaged behind the fuzzy word "equidistance," now countenances suicide
bombings in Israel by fundamentalist Palestinians.

Appeasement generates a mentality that allows Europe to ignore nearly
500,000 victims of Saddam's torture and murder machinery and,motivated by
the self-righteousness of the peace movement, has the gall to issue bad
grades to George Bush... Even as it is uncovered that the loudest critics
of the American action in Iraq made illicit billions, no, TENS of billions,
in the corrupt U.N. Oil-for-Food program. And now we are faced with a
particularly grotesque form of
appeasement. How is Germany reacting to the escalating violence by Islamic
Fundamentalists in Holland and elsewhere? By suggesting that we really
should have a "Muslim Holiday" in Germany?

I wish I were joking, but I am not. A substantial fraction of our (German)
Government, and if the polls are to be believed, the German people,
actually believe that creating an Official State "Muslim Holiday" will
somehow spare us from the wrath of the fanatical Islamists. One cannothelp but
recall Britain's Neville Chamberlain waving the laughable treatysigned by
Adolph Hitler and declaring European "Peace in our time".

What else has to happen before the European public and its political
leadership get it? There is a sort of crusade underway, an especially perfidious
crusade consisting of systematic attacks by fanatic Muslims, focused on
civilians, directed against our free, open Western >societies, and intent upon
Western Civilization's utter destruction.

It is a conflict that will most likely last longer than any of the great
military conflicts of the last century - a conflict conducted by an enemy that
cannot be tamed by "tolerance" and "accommodation" but is actually spurred
on by such gestures, which have proven to be, and will always be taken by the
Islamists for signs of weakness.

Only two recent American Presidents had the courage needed for
Anti-appeasement: Reagan and Bush. His American critics may quibble over the details,
but we
Europeans know the truth. We saw it first hand: Ronald Reagan ended the Cold
War,
freeing half of the German people from nearly 50 years of terror and virtual
slavery. And Bush, supported only by the Social Democrat Blair, acting
onmoral conviction, recognized the danger in the Islamic War againstDemocracy.
His place in history will have to be evaluated after a number of years have
passed. In the meantime, Europe sits back with charismatic self-confidence in
the multicultural corner, instead of defending liberal society's values and
being an attractive center of power on the same playing field as the true
great powers, America and China.

On the contrary - we Europeans present ourselves, in contrast to
those"arrogant Americans", as the World Champions of "tolerance", which
even(Germany's Interior Minister) Otto Schily justifiably criticizes. Why? Because we're
so moral? I fear it's more because we're so materialistic, so devoid of a
moral compass.

For his policies, Bush risks the fall of the dollar, huge amounts of
additional national debt, and a massive and persistent burden on the
American economy - because unlike almost all of Europe, Bush realizes what
is at stake - literally everything.

While we criticize the "capitalistic robber barons" of America because they
seem too sure of their priorities, we timidly defend our Social Welfare
systems. Stay out of it! It could get expensive! We'd ratherdiscuss reducing
our 35-hour workweek or our dental coverage, or our
4 weeks of paid vacation... Or listen to TV pastors preach about the need
to "reach out to terrorists. To understand and forgive".

These days, Europe reminds me of an old woman who, with shaking
hands, frantically hides her last pieces of jewelry when she notices a
robber breaking into a neighbor's house.

Appeasement??

Europe, thy name is Cowardice. ---God Bless America---

Dems taking funds from questionable donors View Thread

A New Alliance Of Democrats Spreads Funding
But Some in Party Bristle At Secrecy and Liberal Tilt

By Jim VandeHei and Chris Cillizza
Washington Post Staff Writers
Monday, July 17, 2006; A01



An alliance of nearly a hundred of the nation's wealthiest donors is roiling Democratic political circles, directing more than $50 million in the past nine months to liberal think tanks and advocacy groups in what organizers say is the first installment of a long-term campaign to compete more aggressively against conservatives.

A year after its founding, Democracy Alliance has followed up on its pledge to become a major power in the liberal movement. It has lavished millions on groups that have been willing to submit to its extensive screening process and its demands for secrecy.

These include the Center for American Progress, a think tank with an unabashed partisan edge, as well as Media Matters for America, which tracks what it sees as conservative bias in the news media. Several alliance donors are negotiating a major investment in Air America, a liberal talk-radio network.

But the large checks and demanding style wielded by Democracy Alliance organizers in recent months have caused unease among Washington's community of Democratic-linked organizations. The alliance has required organizations that receive its endorsement to sign agreements shielding the identity of donors. Public interest groups said the alliance represents a large source of undisclosed and unaccountable political influence.

Democracy Alliance also has left some Washington political activists concerned about what they perceive as a distinctly liberal tilt to the group's funding decisions. Some activists said they worry that the alliance's new clout may lead to groups with a more centrist ideology becoming starved for resources.

Democracy Alliance was formed last year with major backing from billionaires such as financier George Soros and Colorado software entrepreneur Tim Gill. The inspiration, according to founders, was a belief that Democrats became the minority party in part because liberals do not have a well-funded network of policy shops, watchdog groups and training centers for activists equivalent to what has existed for years on the right.

But the alliance's early months have been marked by occasional turmoil, according to several people who are now or have recently been affiliated with the group. Made up of billionaires and millionaires who are accustomed to calling the shots, the group at times has gotten bogged down in disputes about its funding priorities and mission, participants said.

Democracy Alliance organizers say early disagreements are first-year growing pains for an organization that has decades-long goals. Judy Wade, managing director of the alliance, said fewer than 10 percent of its initial donors have left, a figure she called lower than would be expected for a new venture. And she said the group's funding priorities are a work in progress, as organizers try to determine what will have the most influence in revitalizing what she called the "center-left" movement.

"Everything we invest in should have not just short-term impact but long-term impact and sustainability," she said. The group requires nondisclosure agreements because many donors prefer anonymity, Wade added. Some donors expressed concern about being attacked on the Web or elsewhere for their political stance; others did not want to be targeted by fundraisers.

"Like a lot of elite groups, we fly beneath the radar," said Guy Saperstein, an Oakland lawyer and alliance donor. But "we are not so stupid though," he said, to think "we can deny our existence."

This article is based on interviews with more than two dozen Democrats who are members of the alliance, recipients of their money or familiar with the group's operations. None would speak on the record about financial details, but all such details were confirmed by multiple sources.

Democracy Alliance works essentially as a cooperative for donors, allowing them to coordinate their giving so that it has more influence.

To become a "partner," as the members are referred to internally, requires a $25,000 entry fee and annual dues of $30,000 to cover alliance operations as well as some of its contributions to start-up liberal groups. Beyond this, partners also agree to spend at least $200,000 annually on organizations that have been endorsed by the alliance. Essentially, the alliance serves as an accreditation agency for political advocacy groups.

This accreditation process is the root of Democracy Alliance's influence. If a group does not receive the alliance's blessing, dozens of the nation's wealthiest political contributors as a practical matter become off-limits for fundraising purposes.

Many of these contributors give away far more than the $200,000 requirement. Soros, Gill and insurance magnate Peter Lewis are among the biggest contributors, but 45 percent of the 95 partners gave $300,000 or better in the initial round of grants last October, according to a source familiar with the organization.

Democracy Alliance organizers say they are trying to bring principles of accountability and capital investment that are common in business to the world of political advocacy, where they believe such principles have often been missing.

Wade declined to discuss the donors or the groups they fund. But, in an interview, she described how the groups were chosen. Alliance officials initially reviewed about 600 liberal and Democratic-leaning organizations. Then, about 40 of those groups were invited to apply for an endorsement -- with a requirement that they submit detailed business plans and internal financial information. Those groups were then screened by a panel of alliance staff members, donors and outside experts, including some with expertise in philanthropy rather than politics. So far, according to people familiar with the alliance, 25 groups have received its blessing.

The goal was to invest in groups that could be influential in building what activists call "political infrastructure" -- institutions that can support Democratic causes not simply in the next election but for years to come.

Those who make the cut have prospered. The Center for American Progress (CAP), which is led by former Clinton White House chief of staff John Podesta, received $5 million in the first round because it was seen as a liberal version of the Heritage Foundation, which blossomed as a conservative idea shop in the Reagan years, said one person closely familiar with alliance operations. CAP officials declined to comment.

Likewise, a Democracy Alliance blessing effectively jump-started Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). It bills itself as a nonpartisan watchdog group committed to targeting "government officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests." Alliance officials see CREW as a possible counterweight to conservative-leaning Judicial Watch, which filed numerous lawsuits against Clinton administration officials in the 1990s. A CREW spokesman declined to comment.

The Center for Progressive Leadership and its president, Peter Murray, are getting funding from the alliance and are seen by some as a potential leader in training young activists on the left. While the center is still dwarfed by conservative groups such as the Leadership Institute, alliance donors have helped increase Murray's budget to $2.3 million, compared with $1 million one year ago, he said.

But Democracy Alliance's decisions not to back some prominent groups have stirred resentment. Among the groups that did not receive backing in early rounds were such well-known centrist groups as the Democratic Leadership Council and the Truman National Security Project.

Funding for these groups was "rejected purely because of their ideologies," said one Democrat familiar with internal Democracy Alliance funding discussions.

Officials with numerous policy and political groups in Washington said they have reservations about the group's influence. Several declined to talk on the record for fear of alienating a funding source.

But Matt Bennett, a vice president at Third Way, a centrist group that did not receive funding in the first wave of endorsements, said he believes that Democracy Alliance has merit. "It will enable progressives, for the first time ever, to build a permanent infrastructure to beat the conservative machine," he said.

Philanthropist David Friedman, an alliance partner and self-described centrist, said that "as our portfolio grows, we will fund a broader range of groups."

But some consider Democracy Alliance's hidden influence troubling, regardless of its ideological orientation. Unlike election campaigns, which must detail contributions and spending, most of the think tanks and not-for-profit groups funded by the alliance are exempt from public disclosure laws.

"It is a huge problem," said Sheila Krumholz, the acting executive director of the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. She noted that for decades "all kinds of Democrats and liberals were complaining that corporations and individuals were carrying on these stealth campaigns to fund right-wing think tanks and advocacy groups. Just as it was then, it is a problem today."

The exclusive donor club includes millionaires such as Susie Tompkins Buell and her husband, Mark Buell, major backers of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), and Chris Gabrieli, an investment banker running for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in Massachusetts this September. Mark Buell estimated that about 70 percent of alliance partners built their own wealth, while 30 percent became wealthy through inheritances.

Bernard L. Schwartz, retired chief executive of Loral Space & Communications Inc. and an alliance donor, said the group offers partners "an array of opportunities that have passed their smell test." This is most helpful, he said, for big donors who lack the time to closely examine their political investment options.

Trial lawyer Fred Baron, a member of the alliance and longtime Democratic donor, agreed: "The piece that has always been lacking in our giving is long-term infrastructure investments."

There also are a few "institutional investors" such as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) that pay a $50,000 annual fee and agree to spend $1 million on alliance-backed efforts.

Some Democratic political consultants privately fear that the sums being spent by alliance donors will mean less money spent on winning elections in 2006 and 2008.

But Rob Stein, co-founder of Democracy Alliance, said the party will become ascendant only if it thinks beyond the next election cycle.

Stein has closely studied the conservative movement -- often with envy. Armed with a PowerPoint presentation for potential donors, he argues that Republicans dominate the federal and many state governments because they methodically made investments in groups that could generate new ideas, shape public opinion, train conservative activists and elected officials, and boost voter turnout among conservatives -- aware that there was no near-term payoff. Liberals have done nothing comparable, he said.

"It is not possible in the 21st century to promote a coherent belief system and maintain political influence without a robust, enduring local, state and national institutional infrastructure," Stein said. "Currently, the center-left is comparatively less strategic, coordinated and well financed than the conservative-right. These comparative disadvantages are debilitating."

Accriding to a Dr. Baravarian, a peripheral nerve/ foot surgeon out of UCLA and trained by Dr. Dellon using the Dellon formula for TTS release, Aaron Filler out of UCLA is putting on a scam with the nuerography, seeing that it does not give more significant evidence for nerve entrapments and that it is not covered by insurance AT ALL! And if it did, why wouldnt he be using it because of its effectiveness.

Now that the nice weather is upon us here in Manhattan, my inability to walk more than 3 blocks without the onset of pain has become more apparent than when the bad weather could be used as an excuse not to go out and walk. Okay, enough complaining. On to a request for advice:

After 3½ months of PF I've learned that I need a sneaker (now called athletic shoe) which provides good cushioning in the heel while being highly flexible in the sole. I errored in my purchase of New Balance 747 in that they provide the cushioned heel but have a rigid sole.

I have no problem inserting my Powersteps into any shoe although I'm doubtful they help, along with everything else I've tried. (Boy, do I relate to Sharon B although I haven't tried all her regimens.)

Thanks for any advice.

I've been fighting this for about a year also. What I have found to help are:
(First, I should say that my Chiropractor told me that I have a mild case of PF. But, he has also told me that I've been the most difficult case he's worked with...that is, it is usually cleared up with his ART technique with his patients quicker than I have experienced)

- ART
I tried several of the things on your list before ART. I finally am seeing a Chiropractor who has done me a lot of good with ART. Several on this forum feel that you should combine that with Graston. In my case, my Chiro thought my PF wasn't bad enough to need Graston also (of course, he doesn't do Graston either). The 'knot' in my arch has been cleared up via the ART. I currently have pain in just the heel, whereas I had it in the arch, and side of foot.

- Taping
I do NOT think taping will cure, but will help you get through the day. From what I read here, and my experience, you'll have to do it for a while to get to where you really know how to tape it effectively. I use the method outlined in this site. I have added cross straps of tape similar to what is outlined in the low dye strap method referenced in other posts by a Dr. I have found, just recently that I do not want to take the straps too close to the heel, but more in the middle of the foot.
- Night splint
If I do not wear the splint, I definitely have problems. It does seem that in my case, the thing that is causing most problems is a tight calf muscle. The splint really helps with that problem in the mornings. If you cannot get used to it to sleep, if you can at least get it on the foot for about an hour before you get up, that can be quite helpful. Also, wear it for an hour before going to bed.
- Tennis Ball
My ART Chiropractor told me to roll my foot, with a lot of pressure (what I can stand), over a tennis ball. Particulary before and after activity...especially after. He has reinforced that every time I see him.
- Stretches
Definitely stay away from weight bearing stretches. My Chrio has shown me to do off the step stretches, but WITH NO WEIGHT ON TEH FOOT I'M STRETCHING. I have a post her, a couple months old, about it. It's titled somethign about problems with weight bearing stretches (I had a issue with doing weight bearing stretches and started the post) You can search on my name and page down untnil you find it, I believe.

At the moment, I can move around most of the day without discomfort at all. But, my experience has been that I have ups and downs. This week I'm experiencing ups ;-).

Another thing to do is rest the foot as much as possible. Up on the foot equals more pain. I know that is difficult.

I would like feedback on what has worked for others. Here is the action I have already taken:
- Foot wrap for two weeks
- Physical Therapy (3/2/05 – 5/23/05)
- Iontophoresis (with topical steroid – 12 sessions)
- Taping of foot
- Use of slant board several times per day for stretching
- Other stretching exercises (hanging off of step, leaning against wall, etc)
- Use of 5 pound weights on feet during exercises
- Wear night splint
- New orthodics (threw out knee)
- New orthodics (softer but really hurts after a few hours
- New sneakers
- Lynco sport orthodics (feels best)
- One cortisone shot (some numbing for 3 days- then the pain returns)
- Acupuncture
- Reflexology
- Chiropractic
Everything helps a bit. There are some good days but every day is painful. Thanks for your suggestions.

Jan P - It is always good to bring attention again to information that has been discussed before but that has not been revisited in a while. Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) and Aaron Mattes and the methods he developed are renowned and are what is behind several other well-known practitioners' work (the Whartons, for example). It is not mentioned in the piece you linked, but worth noting that Aaron Mattes studied and taught at the University of Illinois for a long time. Illinois does not get its due often enough in all the many areas in which it is outstanding.
Glad you reminded this website again of Aaron Mattes and AIS and thanks for the good link with the demonstrated movements.

Re: Seeking comments on Anodyne-Infrared (2nd try) View Thread

Hi Sharon. I just had my first 3 treatments of anodyne therapy so thought I'd share what I am experiencing. I don't have wounds but have had Tarsal Tunnnel syndrome since 2001 and also peripheral neuropathy whcih has cause increasing pain over the years. I tried many of the medicines used for these conditions and had tarsal tunnel release surgery a little over a year ago which was unsuccessful and caused additional pain to that foot and ankle. I recently started taking Lyrica which has markedly decreased my pain and hyper-sensitivity, if not the tingling and numbness. After my first treatment of anodyne therapy I thought I felt further relief and after the 3rd treatment I am sure I feel more comfortable than just with the Lyrica. I am not completely pain free but feel more "discomfort" than "pain" now. The treatment is easy, all I do is sit for 30-45 minutes with the pads in place, and you feel nothing at all. After the treatment I have noticed a warm feeling in each foot which lasts a long time and is quite pleasant on these cold days since my feet would hurt worse when cold. The only problem is that there are only three physical therapy places that have the machine in my area and two weren't convenient to get to. In my reading about the therapy I remember reading that it could be used for wound treatment and if it causes the increased blood circulation to the area treated and relieves pain I can see it being very beneficial for wound care. I would definitely try it if I were you. You have nothing to lose and it can't hurt you. I am thrilled with my recent progress since I was at the point of considering another surgery because I couldn't deal with the pain anymore and was so frustrated by not being able to live my life like I wanted anymore. I felt I had no more options and would have to somehow learn to live with the misery the rest of my life. Hope you can try anodyne and that you find some relief and healing. Let us know how it goes.
Anne

M. Beck and Amanda, I totally understand that people are built differently. I am not very flexible and I understand that as you get older, your body begins to change. I have found though that the more yoga I do, the more my flexibility increases. Initially, when I would hear the instructor telling us what she wanted us to do, I thought she was crazy. There was no way my body would be able to bend that way. I thought I would never be like those little girls who look like pretzels and can do everything. I would do the easier version of these poses, and eventually, I surprized myself. Some things I know I will never be able to do though, but that's ok. Your body still benefits from it. M. Beck, downward dog is very difficult for some people. For me it is actually very stressful on my arms, not my legs. Have you ever tried Bikram style yoga though? There are no downward dogs in this style. Our instructor always tells us that the ones that hurt us the most and make us feel like our body will break, are the ones we need the most. Amanda, in all of these yogas, there is a lot of standing and balancing poses, but these poses are your friends. This is exactly what will make the pain go away. I don't understand the complete science behind it, but all I know is that I need these poses. I have tried pilates. Pilates is more of a core strengthing and is based on the principles of yoga. Yoga is complete total body healing. Bikram yoga actually works every organ and joint in your body. And it actually helps strengthen your joints.

Here are some websites that I found that might give you guys more information:

This is the studio I go to. Read the testimonial section. The one on PF is NOT posted by me. http://www.yogastlouis.com/index.html

Well, the difference between you and me is that I was desperate, but I still had hope. I am only 26, so it was very important to me to try anything to make this go away. I'll tell you what, it is better than taking 12 advils a day like I used to, Baextra, Vioxx and all the other drugs I've tried. It is better than having surgery, it is better than getting coritisone shots, and it sure as hell beats pain. And by the way, I can wear any shoes I want, flat or any other kind. I also tried wearing Danskos and they didn't help either. Even when I wore gym shoes and walked around for a long time, my feet would hurt. Not anymore!

Don't you guys get it...yoga is just aggressive stretching. The stretching that the doctors usually give you is not aggressive enough. So when I tried the stretching it wasn't working and so we tried other methods. When your calves and quads and hams are that tight, which is what causes PF, that little stretching will not do anything for you. And I'm not just advocating Bikram Yoga, it's the hatha style of yoga that helps these muscles gain their flexibility and suppleness back in your legs, and that is what relieves your pain. Like I said, Vinyasa, Bikram, Baron Baptiste, all these styles of yoga work.

Now about heel spurs, I'm not sure, but for PF, this is the way to go.

Aren't these message boards here for people to support each other and convey information about these conditions. I found something that worked for me, and I posted this message here because I wanted to help others. Just try it!!! What do you have to lose???

Read the official "Commentary & Persepctive" on this trial


Commentary & Perspective on
"Treatment for Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head: Comparison of Extracorporeal Shock Waves with Core Decompression and Bone-Grafting"
by Ching-Jen Wang, MD, et al.

Commentary & Perspective by
Jan D. Rompe, MD, and Nicola Maffulli, MD, MS, PhD, FRCS(Orth)*,
OrthoTrauma Clinic, Gruenstadt, Germany (J.D.R.), and Department of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery, Keele University School of Medicine, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, United Kingdom (N.M.)

Dr. Wang and colleagues have reported a randomized-controlled trial in forty-eight adult patients with stage-I, II, or III osteonecrosis of the hip, comparing noninvasive single-treatment high-energy shock-wave application (a total of 6000 impulses; energy flux density equivalent to 0.62 mJ/mm2) to core decompression and nonvascularized fibular grafting. At a minimum of two years of follow-up, the pain and Harris hip scores were significantly better in the shock-wave group than in the surgical group. Total hip replacement was required in 10% of the shock-wave group, and in 32% of the surgery group.

We compliment the authors for a carefully prepared pilot study that provides new, and most importantly, scientifically tested information about the potential role of shock-wave application in the treatment of early stage osteonecrosis of the adult hip.

There are relatively few reports on shock-wave treatment for osteonecrosis of the hip, and certainly this management modality will remain controversial. Even in experienced hands, reproducible application of high-energy shock-wave treatment to the femoral head is not simple, and the results from subsequent reports might not always be as favorable as this report from Wang and colleagues was. We would also caution that because of the critical neurovascular structures that lie in direct anatomical proximity to the femoral head, it is important that the application of high-energy shock-wave treatment be carried out by experienced physicians in this technique.

The authors correctly state that surgical treatment is usually indicated even for early stage osteonecrosis of the hip. However, the prognosis varies considerably depending on the extent of involvement. ARCO (Association Research Circulation Osseous) involvement is potentially reversible, but the point of no return for almost all patients is when stage-II or greater involvement occurs. The prognosis for further progression for stage I or II depends primarily on the extent and location of the lesion. Only the rare, small-to-medium-sized lesions in the medial or central location may have a good prognosis over the course of five years or more. The much more common large-sized and laterally located lesions will have a probability of about 80% of progressing to femoral collapse within two years1.

The efficacy of the treatment might have been easier to discern if the authors had concentrated on one subgroup with a sufficient number of patients. The reader cannot deduce whether all of the treated patients were symptomatic (although one presumes so), nor can the reader know the exact localization (medial, central, lateral) and extent of the lesions (mild [<15% of head affected], moderate [15% to 30%], severe [>30%]) regarding the ARCO stages. This is particularly regrettable when the authors report regression of five of thirteen ARCO stage-I or stage-II lesions after shock-wave treatment. It will be necessary for future trials to have more information on this specific subgroup of successfully treated patients.

According to Table V, the size of the lesion was evaluated on plain radiographs and magnetic resonance images before and after treatment. In patients showing a regression from ARCO stage-II lesions (abnormal radiograph and abnormal magnetic resonance image) and ARCO stage-I lesions (normal radiograph, abnormal magnetic resonance image), it is not clear whether the sizes were measured uniformly by magnetic resonance imaging at all follow-ups or whether a mixture of radiographic and magnetic resonance imaging measurements were used.

The authors state that the radiologist involved in the evaluation of the ARCO stages of patients of both groups was blinded to the nature of treatment. This will have been the case before treatment, but as one of the study arms involved core decompression, the "blinded" radiologist might have been subjected to bias during the postoperative evaluation. This may be an additional potential source for bias in this study, as clinical assessment was not reported to have been performed independent of the treating physician.

It is not entirely clear how the authors approached the treatment of patients with bilateral disease in either group. Because core decompression and nonvascularized fibular graft required up to six months of protected weight-bearing after the operation, compared with only four to six weeks after high-energy shock-wave treatment, it might have been necessary to delay surgery on the contralateral hip for quite some time, thereby allowing the condition to progress and adversely affect the outcome.

A weakness of the study is whether the optimal dose of shock waves was delivered to these patients. Recently, the authors had reported an optimal treatment of 500 impulses of shock waves at a low-energy flux density of 0.16 mJ/mm2 to stimulate complete bone-healing without complications in both in vivo and in vitro experiments in animals2-5. But, without any preliminary clinical investigation described in the article, the rationale for the choice of the particular regimen in human application—6000 impulses of a high-energy flux density—is dubious.

Nevertheless, the take-home message from this pilot study is that there may be a promising way to avoid performing major surgery on patients with osteonecrosis, and thus also avoid the potential concomitant morbidity and complications, such as infection, perforation of the articular cartilage of the femoral head, or graft migration. The authors are to be congratulated for providing the data needed to calculate sample size and power for future randomized controlled trials. These data will be indispensable in assessing the efficacy of high-energy shock-wave application as a novel management for osteonecrosis of the femoral head.

liboralis -

I, for one, am beyond fatigue from your mischaracterization of words and motivations behind them. You have now introduced a new issue when you write: "And some have such a deep seated hate for conservatives....."
First of all, NO ONE has said or even intimated that they have a 'deep seated hate for conservatives'. It seems to me that most right-minded people have a deep seated hate for being lied to, manipulated and exploited. Normal minds are not masochistic enough to enjoy the kind of treatment that is the modus operandi (M.O.) of this administration. Unfortunately, this administration has had almost no intelligent, legitimate opposition to their foul deeds because the Democrats are almost indistinguishable from the Republicans. The one thing that this administration (not Bush; he is not masterful at anything but putting on his cowboy outfit: I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy....Don't get me wrong; I like cowboys - he just ain't one of 'em.)
To intimate that these current Republicans (since Reagan) are "conservatives" is to display an appalling lack of understanding of what "conservative" means. These people are anything BUT conservative. If we had fiscal conservatism and social liberalism (a combination that used to describe the Republican party), we might not be in the messes that we are in.(We'd be in different messes!) Similarly, to those who want us to believe that current Democrats (since Clinton's hijacking of the Democratic party) are liberal, you have a very narrow view of 'liberal' and the Clintons are not that.
These sociopolitical concepts MATTER and have meaning and are important issues, yet they have been bastardized and polluted by misuse and propaganda.
The Reagan-Bush-Bush and their ilk Republicans are not conservative in the slightest. They are rapacious and more in the vein of the robber-barons of old. Unless you are a member of their special club,liboralis, you should vehemently object to the way they bugger you and all the rest of us. Instead, you and so many others are their perfect dupes. It is how fascism has always begun because the fascists need propaganda and mindless masses to get a strong foothold, but after that, it won't matter.
Doesn't it really matter to you that Bush and his little clubhouse are just plucking astronomical dollar amounts out of the air for this little adventure and that little adventure and telling you to send it to them - and by the way, they'd like your firstborn, too, for the "war". And then, even when you learn that they didn't really use all that money you've been sending them to shore up the clubhouse and the moat as they said they were doing and even when you learn that they have been using it to take themselves out for ice cream and new velvet pantaloons and wig whitening, you still say to the rest of us - who don't think that looting and lying are nice or decent - that we are just nasty, crabby haters of conservatives and stop picking on that nice boy Bush.
How could we hate conservatives when we haven't seen a conservative in twenty or so years? We also haven't seen a liberal in a very long time. Worst of all, we haven't seen a smart, wise, informed, prepared, decent and honest candidate in a long time. Did you find the way Bush and his little club treated John McCain to be wonderful, liboralis? Do you remember what they did and said? Do you not know that they are capable of anything?
I neither hate nor love conservatives or liberals. What I do hate is the wanton squandering of our principles, our natural wealth, our human potential and our health and safety. I hate foolishness and pandering and greed masquerading as leadership. I hate looters - at any level, of any type - and, dear liboralis, if you live in America these days, you are being looted.
Tell me, liboralis, would you by any chance happen to know that private property rights have been at the heart and soul of conservative, capitalist beliefs since their beginnings? You may recall that the Supreme Court - why, it was just this year - ruled that yes, indeedy, municipalities certainly may take private property and give it to another private property entity for development. Not highways or bridges or flood control, liboralis; no, no. Not eminent domain as we used to know it. No, this sanctions the taking of private property to give to another private owner. Do you find this to be in keeping with "conservative" principles, liboralis?

And let's just say that the Supreme Court was only interpreting existing law (cough, cough - excuse me....). Well, if that's the 'case', then Congress could rectify this deplorable situation by enacting corrective legislation. Have you seen any such legislation proposed, liboralis? Why would they do that, liboralis? It's the quintessential sweetheart deal for the rapacious robber-barons: the Supreme Court has said it's ok for rich developers to take your property if they say it will "help" the community - and, by the way, the case was based around a shopping center development!! Conservative, liboralis?

A final aside: to those who so love to invoke Michael Moore - something that pea-brain Sean Hannity loves to do - I would guess that "most" (a scientific survey has not been done) liberals do not like Michael Moore; he's just a loud voice of opposition to Bush and Bushites; he's big and loud and gets himself heard above the din of Bush-worship. In my view, he's a phoney, self-promoting blowhard - but then he's no different from the people he mocks who have a lot more power,authority and money than he does. They could "smack him down" in an instant if they wanted to, if they didn't find him so very, very useful.

So, please,liboralis, you can defend Bush and all of his buddies and cronies and club-members for any reason you want, but you cannot defend them because they are conservatives. They are absolutely, completely, totally not conservatives. Oh, wait - maybe I am wrong: now that I think of it, they are conservatives - they are conserving THEIR way of life and world-view and you and I have the privilege of paying for it. We're very lucky, aren't we, to have such benevolent kings and princes as our rulers.

"Aid offers pour in from around the globe

WASHINGTON - In a dramatic turnabout, the United States is now on the receiving end of help from around the world as some two dozen countries offer post-hurricane assistance.

Venezuela, a target of frequent criticism by the Bush administration, offered humanitarian aid and fuel. Venezuela’s Citgo Petroleum Corp. pledged a $1 million donation for hurricane aid.

With offers from the four corners of the globe pouring in, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has decided “no offer that can help alleviate the suffering of the people in the afflicted area will be refused,” State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Thursday.

However, in Moscow, a Russian official said the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency had rejected a Russian offer to dispatch rescue teams and other aid.

Condolences and cash
On Tuesday, President Vladimir Putin sent condolences to President Bush and said Russia was prepared to help if asked.

Boats, aircraft, tents, blankets, generators, cash assistance and medical teams have been offered to the U.S. government in Washington or in embassies overseas.

Offers have been received from Russia, Japan, Canada, France, Honduras, Germany, Venezuela, Jamaica, Australia, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Greece, Hungary, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Mexico, China, South Korea, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, NATO and the Organization of American States, the spokesman said.

Israeli Ambassador Daniel Ayalon called Wednesday at the State Department to offer condolences and assistance. Israel is the largest recipient of U.S. aid, about $2.2 billion a year.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has offered the U.S. hundreds of doctors, nurses, experts in trauma and natural disasters, NBC News has learned. Sharon has also offered field hospitals and medical kits as well as temporary housing and told Bush in a letter that the medical assistance and other help could be deployed within 24 hours.

Tempered expectations
Still, Bush told ABC-TV: “I’m not expecting much from foreign nations because we hadn’t asked for it. I do expect a lot of sympathy and perhaps some will send cash dollars. But this country’s going to rise up and take care of it.”"

Count the number of people she has helped and that doesn't even include those who haven't posted. Do you know how many of my friends now do Julie's foot yoga? And I'm just one person. Julie has been fundamental to your Board.

In my opinion, Julie and John are the backbone of this Board. We have some other wonderful posters and I would be remiss if I didn't single out Suzanne who always knows exactly what to say. Today is her first day of school, so we haven't heard from her. But we may not because she, like so many of us, is just so tired of confrontation. That was why I didn't say anything when Julie first left nor did I get involved much in this current episode.

I can't remember when I first posted on this Board but it was just a few weeks before Suzanne posted so maybe five years? I had been reading it but it took a lot of courage to finally post. At that time, we had the two Nancy's, Brian G, John h, Wendy, Carole, Judy S, Julie, Sharon, Carmen and Necee as regulars. They posted almost daily. I'm sure I've forgotten several others but those are the ones who come to mind. They all made me feel so welcome. I would never have had the nerve to post had the Board been the way it is now.

When the war in Iraq began, the Social Board became a political forum.
No, that's not right because it was so one-sided that no one could have even described it as such. Things got incredibly nasty. Many of our regulars disappeared. In my opinion, had you intervened sooner and more strenuously, many of them would still be regular posters. I agreed with you that it was wise not to discuss politics here.

And that may be why you intervened when Elyse got out of line. Perhaps you didn't want to let things go as far as they had gone when the political snafu took place. It must have been hard to come up with the new guidelines and I think you did your best by changing one feature that offended many. Obviously, not everyone was going to like them but you know you can't please everyone. Why would you turn on Julie because she didn't think the rules would work out? Didn't you violate the one rule that's always been constant - the "Be Nice" rule?

I understand that this is your Board and you make the rules but could you explain why you treated Julie in such a manner? Seriously, I don't get it.

Re: cosmetology surgery on foot View Thread
Posted by Elyse B on 7/23/05 at 13:54

How come you never believe anything Dr. Z? It is not an urban myth and I remember exactly reading it the NYC newspapers and seeing that podiatrist on the morning shows:

"More than half of the 175 members of the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society who responded to a recent survey by the group said that they had treated patients with problems resulting from cosmetic foot surgery. The society will soon issue a statement condemning the procedures, said Rich Cantrall, its executive director.

The American Podiatric Medical Association is also likely to formally discourage medically unnecessary foot operations, said Dr. Glenn Gastwirth, executive director of the group.
" I think it's reprehensible for a physician to correct someone's feet so they can get into Jimmy Choo shoes," said Dr. Sharon Dreeben, an orthopedic surgeon in La Jolla, Calif., who is chairwoman of the foot and ankle society's public education committee.

But advocates for the procedures say that critics simply do not understand the importance of high heels. "Some of these women invest more in their shoes than they do in the stock market," said Dr. Suzanne M. Levine, an Upper East Side podiatrist who is widely quoted in women's magazines and has appeared on network television promoting the procedures.

"Take your average woman and give her heels instead of flats, and she'll suddenly get whistles on the street," Dr. Levine said. "I do everything I can to get them back into their shoes.

Re: AIS and flexing muscles View Thread
Posted by Ron on 6/08/05 at 21:22

I must be honest with you, I don't have the requisite knowledge to address your concerns in a complete manner. I'll do my best, however.

The sore muscles are the ones you've been flexing, right? I have had sore stomach muscles. If you haven't used these muscles in a while that might happen. This is one of the principles behind AIS that can benefit a person in not becoming too limber. The flexing of the agonist muscle will strengthen that muscle.

Being tight is a bit of a concern. I'll like to hear more of where you're tight and why you think that's so.

Make sure you're not feeling too much of a pull. This is my routine that I've gotten down over the last month. Mind you, I am not very disciplined and so haven't applied every technique all at once. My concentration isn't as great as it should be (I get distracted by my surroundings), and I've just gotten used to breathing as of late, and I've been relaxing more between stretches, and so on and so forth.

I'll go over two stretches of mine and tell you not only my problems but successes with them.

The first stretch is the hamstring stretch. I lie on my back and wrap the rope around my right foot, in the arch. I lift my leg up first straight without help of the rope. I've learned not to worry too much about tightening my quad because my body will take care of that while lifing the leg. The quad is the only way it can be lifted. At the end of lift when I can't go any further, I'll tug on the rope for an estimated two seconds. I'll be breathing out at this time at the peak of this stretch. When my breath is all gone I'll relax my leg to the floor again. I'll be breathing in at this time for an estimated two seconds, then repeat this for around 8 to 12 times.

The hamstrings have been the hardest for me to see results. But now I'll see that I can lift them further and further. I'll actually do different routines with this. Sometimes, I won't do 8 to 12 but only a few of straight leg hamstring stretches and then I'll move my leg out to the side, either straght or bent. I'll feel a real strong stretch here but watch out about this. Too much too fast will get you. I've actually felt a pull the next day from doing this so I take it extra easy.

Next is the calf stretch. I'll sit on my bum with legs extended about 6 to 12 inches apart. I'll wrap the rope around my foot once (some sites have recommended "twice" but I find that cuts off circulation). I'll dorsiflex my ankle as far back as I can. I'll actually see my shin tighten and it even gets a small dimple in it. This very act alone will relax your calf. It should need no more flexing other than this (but I'd imagine some time down the road I might be able to flex it even further.)

While my ankle is dorsiflexed as far as it can go, I'll be breathing out and then I'll tug a little on my rope (actually it's a tie down strap about 2 inches wide, the kind you can find on trucks). I'll feel a small discomfort at the top of my calf, but nothing like when you're doing static stretches against the wall while standing (you know the ones that are always recommended). This is only a tiny pull, more like a pinch of pain. I've noticed too much pressure on the rope really hurts. It isn't like a stretchy feeling at all.

Eventually my dorsiflexion has gotten greater so as Aaron Mattes recommends on his site, you can add more resistance by either bringing up the foot or bending down toward your foot. I bend toward my foot now.

The goal of this is more flexibility. How you get there only matters to the degree that it's getting you there. That's the paradigm. The paradigm isn't stretching for the sake of stretching, or technique for the sake of technique. If you aren't more flexible after a few weeks to a month, I'd say you either are doing something wrong or you may be very flexible to begin with. Females are more flexible as it is. My success can be mostly attributed to my incredible tightness from my neck down to my toes.

Ask away anything that you are confused about. I love helping.

Ron.

Re: Surgery Recovery and Stretches View Thread
Posted by Ron on 6/04/05 at 15:31

There are several difference between AIS and static stretching. You really have to read up on what the differences are. I suggest reading Aaron Mattes book on it and the Wharton book, both can be found at Amazon, for expert advice. Certainly it isn't easy and without pictures you can about forget getting it down right.

AIS in a nutshell.


THE ACTIVE PART:
1) Only hold the stretch for 2 seconds, then relax for 2 seconds. Every time you try to stretch for longer than this, the body has a natural tendency to counteract your intention with it's own reflex (myotatic reflex). This will inhibit stretching.

THE ISOLATED PART:
2) Isolating the muscle is very important. This can lead to some weird looking stretches. In static stretching, many times you will use several muscle groups at once. Like in touching ones toes, you'll use your lower back, hamstring, all your calf muscles and achillies heel, as well as some glutes. AIS avoids this as much as possible.

THE MAIN STRETCHING PART:
3) The muscle to be stretched must be relaxed. A tight muscle will inhibit stretching. The best way to increase relaxation is to tighten the agonist muscle, so the antagonist muscle can relax.

Flex your bicept (agonist) and your tricept (antagonist) will relax. For every agonist there is an antagonist muscle. However, sometimes it's not easy to locate which one to flex

I still don't get this part for every muscle group. It's very difficult to flex the stomach muscles while stretching the glutes, or to flex the shins while stretching the calves. This means reading up on this from an expert source to solve this problem.

Re: Which of AIS Techniques for pf? View Thread
Posted by Ron on 6/04/05 at 14:36

This is right up my alley. ;-> The right stretches would be all of them. I read Phil Wharton recommended to stretch Zone 5 (assuming that is lower extremeties), which he discusses in his book, which I don't have at present.

I do some of these located here:
http://www.hartmann-international.com/001articles/stretching.htm

I must admit that knowing more about the group muscles would help me greatly. And I must warn you that if you are really tight, the actual stretch won't seem like much at first. And certain stretches you'll find that all you'll feel is a mild discomfort. It is an entire paradigm change from static stretching.

The hardest one I had to get used to was the stretch in the lower calf and achillies tendon. What I do with this muscle is, while sitting and leg bent, reach down and grab my feet from the top over my large toe and pull to feel anything substantial (probably because of my extreme tightness). Lately I've been bending my ankle to the left and right and grabbing it in different directions. But it's taken me a month to get used to a feel of a good stretch. Your mileage will certainly vary.

I suggest buying Aaron Mattes book and the Wharton book and read them well, and ignore any bad advie I might have given unintentionally. I haven't bought them yet only because I've more time than money right now :->. The internet is a valuable resource when used properly.

Yea, quite a bit of information is out there. For starters you can go to the search page on heelspurs.com http://heelspurs.com/_search.html and search there. I didn't realize this but others have benefited from AIS just like I have.

I list some links here:
bbv.cgi?n=174061

From what I'm gathering, stretching works for those who are the athletic type and haven't taken care of the body well enough. Or for anyone who is very tight in their lower extremeties. Or if the doctor prescribes stretching and your way isn't working that well.

Look for books on Amazon. Aaron Mattes was the originator of AIS, so look there first. The Whartons were his students, but that doesn't mean they can't help you.

Just remember that not everything works for everybody. Give it at least a few weeks to a month to see if AIS is beneficial. The most important thing is to get a book by Aaron Mattes, the originator of AIS, and Phil Wharton, one of his students. The techniques aren't as simple as you might think, but once the underlying theory is understood you'll see why other techniques aren't as effective.

I've found out that you really need a picture in order to do these properly. And the more you know about your physiology the better results you can get. At Boston College the athletes "receive extensive and specific instruction for each" AIS stretch. http://www.momentummedia.com/articles/tc/tc1503/stretchfield.htm

Please, do yourself a favor and try Active Isolated Stretching (AIS). Static stretching may not have done the trick for you, assuming you've tried stretching at all.

I'm trying AIS right now after just having learned of it and it *looks* promising. I emphasize "looks" because I've read so many great stories about this and it makes so much sense. My feet already feel better. If you don't mind me saying so early on in my treatment, if feels very airy, as if more blood is getting to the area.

AIS theory, according to AAron Mattes, the creator of it, is that static stretching inhibits blood flow, and hence healing, by creating a counter-resistance during the stretch. This means that any stretching isn't always better than no stretching.

Also, icing and orthotics (and possibly even aspirin) may inhibit healing. Icing, by inhibiting blood flow to the area; Orthotics, by inhibiting the plantar fascia from stretching normally while walking.

His technique adds three different flavors to this old age process:

1) Stretching should only last for less than two seconds, before the body responds negatively to what it *may* perceive as an imbalance of muscles and tendons. By keeping the stretching short the body doesn't have time to react negatively to your intentions.

2) Stretching only occurs when the muscle is loose or relaxed. The best way for this to occur is if you tighten the (or a) opposing muscle. E.g, to stretch your thigh you would contract your hamstring (and possibly your buttocks), then stretch your thigh.

3) This last one is only a general condition of the other two. That is, increase blood flow to the existing area. There's a good possibility that lack of blood flow alone could cause pain in your feet. If you doubt this, then look at the theories behind Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT).

It has been 3 months and now I am at a point at night that I can not stand on my foot without excruciating pain and loss of balance. Yes, I've done the stretching, icing, rest, etc. which are temporary fixes but not 100%. My activity level is much reduced for I can only tolerate walking for a straight period of time no more than 2 hours. It is very depressing because the pain takes a toll on your whole body and the inability to walk correctly really causes havick on your joints, back, neck, etc. Talk about shoes, forget about wearing stylish shoes or sling backs - not happening any more for me.

(he would have never made it at work, so we were fortunate that he could take the time off.) Possibly even a little worse up to that point. Now, there is some improvement. His surgeon said when it's both feet it can take longer to heal. However, his surgeon did say there are some who will have immediate relief, some that are better after a few weeks, and some that have relief over an extended period of time. My husband is falling in that category, so you never know.

Ossatron is expensive, but even with the improvement he's had it's still been worth it. He's having more good days than he used to (none with NO pain YET...we are trying to stay positive)...but some with lower level pain than before.

He has seen some improvement. There wasn't much until after the 6th week or so. He wasn't worse, but wasn't any better. Now he notices that it is longer in the morning before they hurt, and after work they recover much quicker. He seems to be able to walk alot better and longer at work without pain, it's just the standing still that hurts. As the week wears on it gets a little harder on him. But he seems to not have the deep burning pain as often as he used to. (it used to be continuous..standing, walking sitting, whatever). It will flare up occasionally when he's sitting, but he used to have the deep burning pain for hours after work. (he works on concrete 11 hours a day) Sometimes his feet feel better when he's sitting if he leaves his shoes on. He really feels like the soft orthotics have helped as well.

His current doctor (he's had PF since Nov 03) highly recommended he get out of his hard custom made orthotics and get into soft custom made ones. He was unable to tolerate them (too much pain with the change we supposed) until after he had ESWT 9 weeks ago. He's able to wear them now and likes them.

Betty, I would give it more time....weeks more. My husband just hit 7 weeks post and although we are hesitant to think it at this point, (he's felt better at times in the past pre-op and then it got worse again), he seems to be a little better. He did seem worse for the first 2-3 weeks. Although he's back to work on concrete (he took 6 1/2 weeks off), he is able to tolerate soft orthotics that his surgeon highly recommended, and before surgery he couldn't tolerate them more than an hour. He is still taking pain medication off and on, but now the medication actually helps and takes it all away at times, when in the past, pain medicine didn't help much at all. It is such a SLOW process for some, including my husband. Don't give up hope just yet.

About the motrin, my husband's doctor told him not to take any anti-inflammatory medication until 6 weeks post-op. The swelling at that point promotes healing. He's taking anti-inflammatory medication now and it does help. My husband's doctor also recommends weigh bearing stretches BAREFOOT. Different than most of what I've read here.

I spent a good chunk of my day at work kneeling on the floor. I tried PT to no avail, and yoga which helped but wasn't a cure. I got an MRI that showed a bulging disc corresponding to the course of the sciatic pain. Due to the horror stories--too many to ignore--I didn't want surgery, nor a blind epidural shot that usually misses and hits something it's not supposed to.

Years passed, until an acquaintance told me about a friend of his that got cured without real surgery. The treatment was called epiduroscopy, an outpatient procedure where a teensy incision is made to just break through the skin (it requires just one stitch to close), and then a teensy scope is placed in the lower back. A rod inside it can poke and prod a bit in case there's some scar tissue to be scraped away. But the main thing done is to squirt enzymes, anti-inflammatories, and steroids down the various nerve roots as needed based on observation. Do a search on google using a few terms like epiduroscopy spine, and you'll get hits. Here is a really great description, including photos (just click on the first link, Epiduroscopy — A Review):

http://www.smj.org.uk/0804/epidural.htm

I had this procedure done and my sciatic pain was cut in half instantly. I think I took off just one day of work. They often repeat the procedure one or two more times several weeks later (it's broken up into separate treatments because you can't overload the body with too much steroids--do that and you'll be forced to break Hank Aaron's home run record :-)), but my insurance wouldn't cover any more such procedures, and the doc, based on what he saw, wasn't sure it would help for my case despite my positive response.

Several more years passed, and in the meantime I contracted sciatica on my left side too, with bulging discs showing up there too on a new MRI (with dye--hey, where's wendyn?). Surgery was really out at this point even if I wanted it--they can't cut your whole back out. Then, last year, a friend told me his sciatica was cured by a somewhat different treatment, x-ray fluoroscopy. Here's a brief description:

http://www.spineuniverse.com/displayarticle.php/article389.html

This is done in the doc's office; you get the shot and go back to work. An x-ray device is used for accurate placement of the steroid shot. When they start injecting, they can see on the screen whether the dye runs where it's supposed to; if not, they just re-angle the needle slightly and try again, and then they know they got it in the right place. Wait 2-7 days to see the reaction. Depending on what they do, the shot may be called different names, e.g., intradiscal nerve root shot, a facet block, a trigger point injection, or whatever, but the key is they're all x-ray guided. We started with my right side. On the first visit, the doc followed the MRI as to where to place the shots, and I got no relief at all. At the next appt a few weeks later, I showed him where my pain was, and he targeted the rest of his shots there. Shortly after the 4-th visit, I was completely pain-free on my right side. After one additional visit and just one shot, I was completely pain-free on my left side. Turns out it was the SI joints bilaterally, where the nerve courses through. It's a big joint so it can take several shots to hit it and get it all.

I'm now about 5 months out and holding. I wish I would've heard of these treatments earlier so I wouldn't have suffered for so long, but in retrospect I'm glad I waited it out and didn't risk back surgery.

Even if you're pain-free, it still pays to take care of yourself. Due to yoga, which I took up after onset of symptoms, my back is now stronger and more flexible than it's ever been, and I feel this may be helping prevent a recurrence.

Epiduroscopy has the advantage of seeing directly what's going on. X-ray fluoroscopy has the advantage of being even more minimally invasive, which is why I recommend trying the X-ray thing first--it also is very helpful as a diagnostic tool for where to direct further attention (e.g., if you do or don't get at least temporary relief in a certain area).

The provider offering the treatment will typically be an anaesthesiologist by training who does nothing but this all day, and likely will be listed under pain mgmt in your insurance manual. He typically will require an MRI report before treating.

These treatments aren't that new--about 15 years old, but many primary physicians and amazingly even some neurosurgeons have never heard of it. But that is changing rapidly, they are growing in use, and fast becoming the standard first line of treatment after rest and PT for sciatica and other nerve impingements that do not require emergency intervention. Published success rates are typically in the 50-90% range, but whatever they are, there is little downside, as the risks are close to non-existent in the hands of someone who knows what he's doing, and it leaves your back completely intact. I do feel the skill of the provider contributes to the success rate, so try and find someone good.

X-ray fluoroscopy and epiduroscopy may not be for everyone, but they're definitely worth looking into. They worked for me.

Re: Question for Doctors about orthotics View Thread
Posted by Sharon B. on 2/27/05 at 09:07

He originally got the orthotics because of arch pain. I never trusted that doctor because I went to him once for something minor in my foot and he said I needed orthotics. He sold them to everyone. (this is the doctor that told him he needed major reconstructive surgery because of his high arch. 5 others didn't agree.) Anyway, we found out years later from another doctor that my husband probably only needed the right shoe size and probably hadn't needed orthotics. Now that he's worn them so long his feet would start hurting (talking about before PF) if he took them off.

He doesn't have first step morning pain. It takes his feet a little time in the morning to start hurting. Usually once he steps on the concrete at work.

If he takes the orthotics out of his shoes while sitting, his feet sometimes have no pain. If he leaves them in while sitting, his feet will hurt. However, when he gets up to walk without the orthotics, his feet hurt without them....really bad by about the 3rd day.

He has seen 6 doctors and once we heard of TTS he asked one about possibly having it. The doctor examined him, but no tests, and said he didn't have any nerve problem because he didn't have the correct symptoms.

We are second guessing everything these days.

Question for Doctors about orthotics View Thread
Posted by Sharon B. on 2/26/05 at 22:07

My husband has had PF since Nov. 03. Had ESWT 3 weeks ago. So far no significant improvement. He has worn hard orthotics for 15 years. His current doctor that did the ESWT suggested soft orthotics. He tried them but the pain was unbearable. The hard ones aren't helping either apparently ,so he's at the point where he's wondering if he should just stop wearing them altogether. It seems that just stopping the orthotics should stretch the plantar fascia. What is your opinion of this?? He will sometimes stop wearing them for a couple of days and it is painful, but he wanted to know that if he could just get through it if it might be better later. I know I've seen on here that orthotics are recommended, but they are doing no good whatsover for him. He had new ones made a couple of months after the initial pain started, so they do fit.

He's tried other over-the-counter inserts, heel cups, taping...everything.

Why must you be so negative and who the heck are you anyway? It's hard enough to be positive about this dang condition without you slamming me every time I mention Ossatron. How much are they paying you and why are you allowed to continue to post here?

They do not have providers in my state, we did not have the option AT THIS TIME, and my husband's case was unusual and he had to have sedation, not that it's really any of your business. This will be the last post of yours I will read. Preach on.

Some of us didn't/don't have the option Vince. And some of us are happy with the research we found on Ossatron.

Jennifer, I know I've read some success stories on here, you might try a search or someone may come on and answer. My husband had it 3 weeks ago and while he's a bit better, we aren't sure if it's because of the surgery or being home from work. The "throbbing-burning pain while sitting" (his exact words) seems to be better. But he goes back to work next week. His doctor told him what everyone else on here says, it could take weeks. My husband also has a severe case (according to his surgeon) so we aren't sure what to expect.

Re: Cost range for ESWT View Thread
Posted by Dr. Z on 2/16/05 at 18:41


Sharon,

It really shouldn't cost any more whether a podiatrist performs the ESWT procedure or an orthopedic doctor. It is very important that you use a physician that you trust and have confidence with, and this is something that I see you did. Many people think that ESWT is soooo simple and you should go for the cheapest etc. As you do appreciate, the diagnosis for Plantar fascitis is so important as well as when to use ESWT. Price comparison should be done but just going for the cheap doc instead of who you think is right for the job well there is the old story you get what you pay for.
ESWT takes skill and experience . The nerve block if not done correctly can cause serious, permenant pain. I guess you either get it or don't You sound like someone who gets it

I should also add that we used an orthopedic surgeon. The best in the region actually, so we know it cost a bit more, but he's the most recommended and we trusted him the most. After seeing 3 podiatrists, we liked nothing they had to offer. I'm sure there are great ones out there, but orthopedic surgeons also perform the surgery.

My husband did try one shot per foot, but since it didn't do any good, we didn't pursue it further. It can help in some cases so I've heard, but not in my husband's case.

We paid almost $3000 for both feet for the Ossatron procedure, and had to pre-pay all of it since insurance didn't cover it. That could vary I'm sure depending on your doctor's fee. We may get a little back from the anesthesiologist.

A couple of my husband's doctors (out of the 6 we saw) weren't too fond of the cortizone shots, especially if the first one didn't work, because they do have a risk involved of doing more damage.

Well, this is the first we've heard of the stress fractures, but his pain at this point isn't anything out of the ordinary. It's basically the same pain he was having before the procedure. We did our research and were satisfied with the Ossatron. I guess when you think "surgery" you want quick results, but we've known all along that it most likely wouldn't happen that way. His doctor even told him his was a severe case so we are hoping for whatever improvement he can get.

Another question.....he is taking 3 weeks off from work, and can take an additional 3 if needed. His doctor really suggests to all the patients to take 6 weeks if they can, but my husband is leaning towards 3 at this point. I'm sure the pain may dictate, but how long have some of you taken off work? My husband's job requires working and standing on concrete.

Thank you for the info. He's been icing today. Had to stop the soft orthotics..too much pain. He's in the same pain he was in before the surgery, so obviously he won't be one of those that has immediate relief. He has a long way to go till the 16 weeks are up, but it's still hard not to get discouraged.

ESWT yesterday View Thread

My husband had the Ossatron procedure yesterday. No pain yesterday of course due to the drugs from the surgery, but today burning as before. The doctor told him some feel better right away, some in a few weeks, and some in a few months, and of course some not at all. Basically the same info we've read here. He's trying to wear his soft orthotics (custom made) that the doctor had recommended he try before doing the surgery, but they hurt him too much then to wear them. He's been wearing hard custom orthotics for years, but he can't decide if perhaps they were part of the reason he never had any relief. His doctor highly recommended soft ones. So he's trying the soft ones now. His doctor said he could use heat and stretch a little, but hoped he'd get to where he didn't need to at all. He's been unable to stretch at all because stretching and the night splints only made it worse, so he's hesitant to stretch now. Has anyone here had the problem with stretching before only to find out that after the procedure it helps?? Any tips as to what to expect now would be appreciated. Thanks!
