Beau,

I personally appreciate your zeal to become a pedorthist but it is also critical to your professional development to actually take and pass the certification prior to representing yourself as a pedorthist both professionally and publicly. Licensure is crucial to being able to present oneself as a credentialed and bonded representative in any healing art whether it be as a massage therapist, certified pedorthist (or other O&P professional) physician or doctor. Doctors must pass their respective boards prior to using their title and pursuing private practice irregardless of their didactic training. They also must pass boards in their individual state they practice in and although there is no O&P licensure in many states, certification is mandatory to ensure that minimal standards have been met.

I know this because I also have taken the C.Ped course and passed the examination prior to using the professional designation. State licensure to my knowledge has more to do with inter-professional boundaries, the ability to practice within your defined scope and provide for Medicare and private insurance. Even the C.Ped's who own and operate retail pedorthic outlets must be registered with one of the accrediting bodies prior to purchasing the franchise.

You may wish to discuss with Mrs. Haig your current situation and pursue ABC certification/accreditation. Working in a chiropractic office does not automatically obviate the need to attain and maintain a professional license.

I urge you to take the exam and become a listed O&P professional Beau, clinical experience is important and having the license to gain that experience is equally important.

Best wishes

Rick: I certainly would not disagree with this. In reality the auto makers should have taken bankruptcy in 2005. They were actually insolvent at that time and could have come out of bankruptcy a lot better than they have now. Their largest problem, as I see it, is the Obama team appears to be pushing the type of cars they should sell. Consumers not politicians or civil servants will decided what will sell and what want. Sales is the engine that drives any company. In the past decade GM could sell cars they just could not make good cars and let the unions walk all over them. They gave up on quality years ago.

Let us look at what happened yesterday or today and see if you can wrap your brain around this. The auto companies had to present a plan to the Obama team of 20 headed by Secretary Gethner that would satisfy the team that they could come out of bankruptcy and be a viable company. For this they would receive billions of dollars of tax payers money both now and in the future. The auto companies apparently passed this test which included closing down excess dealerships. This was an absolute must for the companies to succeed. Now the Senate Commerce Committee is grilling the auto companies as to why they are not renewing the franchises for all those dealerships? After all these dealerships are in some Congressman's district and contribute to his/her reelection. Does it matter to these bozos that the President appointed Geithner and Geithner appointed his team to supervise the car companies so they could conceivable make a profit? This committee has just approved the Auto Companies plan to close all these dealers now a few days later we have Congress saying not so fast. Is there anyone in charge around here?

We see little to nothing about the most important aspect of reviving the American car industry. That is what is the products they will sell and how are they going to compete with the Koreans and Japanese who already have the technology to meet Obama's CAFE standards. Will Americans buy the cars Obama and his team want them to buy and are probably forcing on the car companies to make. That being small fuel efficient cars. If gas prices hang around $2 - $3 a gallon you can bet your last dollar Americans are not going to buy Compact and sub compact vehicles. The Obama car deal has at best, in my opinion, has less than a 50/50 chance of success. We are still beholden to the Unions and when problems arise you can be assured the Democrats will always come down on the side of the Unions. Even if it cost us the owners money. We have spent almost 50 Billion Dollars over the past few months just paying the Union workers as car sales continued to plummet. The government cannot successfully run a car company in which they have loyalties to the Unions and management of the car companies can continually be called before Congress and questioned on how to run a company when the Congressmen know absolutely nothing about running a car company. It is like having Barnery Frank in charge of Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac.

A follow up assessment on Chung Shi View Thread
Posted by Jeremy L, C Ped on 5/24/09 at 08:28

Okay, so we all know there is a recent glut of 'biomechanical footwear' on the market today. And each and every product show I attend there's some other new brand making their launch. Well established brands are also bringing out models within this category. Some of these have been out long enough now to establish some level of acclaim and criticism. Today, I'll focus on Chung Shi.

This brand is (as best as I can determine) exclusively sold in the US through Foot Solutions franchises. Their website makes these claims regarding this brand:

• Promotes the natural walking and jogging gait
• Helps prevent injuries to tendons, ligaments and muscles
• Achieves better postural alignment
• Makes muscles work harder and, therefore, burn more calories
• Absorbs shock to the feet, knees, hips and back
• Leads to a more relaxed, upright posture improving respiration
• Strengthens the core muscles
• Increases calorie consumption (compared with “normal” shoes)
• Improves posture and relieves pressure on the vertebral column
• Improves respiratory and circulatory function, strengthens and improves control of muscles leading to greater relaxation
• Improves athletic endurance
• Finger-pressure massage effect of Chung Shi activates the reflexology zones of the feet
• Tones and strengthens the feet, legs, buttocks, abs and back
• Improves the appearance of cellulite

When one sees this many benefits promoted on a single product, he/she may assume that the marketers are throwing up as many as they can and hope they get some to stick. And he/she wouldn't be completely wrong in that assessment. There are almost no independent studies to verify that most of what is stated is true. What can be relied upon is the evidence demonstrating that shoes engineered to encourage sole strike more towards the front of the heel, then accelerate the gait through propulsion, does help strengthen core muscle groups and reduce impact vibration to the body.

The sole profile employed by Chung Shi and its polyurethane sole material do these things adequately. What they fail to do is employ more traditional interior sole construction techniques which are necessary for those who already have a functional gait deformity.

The perfect example is an individual who has consistent heel pain, as well as a common forefoot supinatus deformity. This person has a laxity in the connective tissue leading the larger bones in the forefoot, not allowing normal strength levels and windlass effect through gait propulsion. This commonly leads to strain to the medial portion of the plantar fascia and heel pain. This person typically needs to turn the forefoot out to compensate for this functional deformity, causing an excess rotation of the midfoot.

Shoes worn by this type of person regularly show two visible signs. There is acute sole wear on the outside of the heel, coupled with acute wear on the inside ball of the foot, often not extending through the area of the great toe. The majority of shoes available at retail will also exhibit a further wear deformity, in that the abducted gait of this person causes a twist in the middle of the shoe's sole. When a credibly made shoe is held upright and viewed from the heel counter, the sole beneath the heel is on a flat plane with the sole under the forefoot. Shoes that lack adequate midfoot support will show the forefoot twisted up on the inside half. When this occurs in the shoe, it extends and exacerbates the pain for those with common type of plantar fasciitis.

This is essentially what happens with Chung Shi shoes. When new and with its biomechanical properties intact, it likely does provide functional benefits to the wearer. Whether they do as much as what is advertised is likely on a case by case basis. What is clear is that the polyurethane sole has no material placed in the midfoot area to reinforce it against torsional break down and deformity. Those possessing a supinatus deformity will eventually cause this kind of twist in the sole and erase the majority of whatever functional benefits the shoe has, sometimes within weeks of owning them.

Based on what I've seen thus far in my patients, and their footwear, I can safely say that those having forefoot varus and supinatus deformities should avoid this brand. You doctor should be able to tell you whether you have either of these conditions. Even those with fairly normal feet should consider avoiding the brand, if they weigh sufficiently over 200 pounds. That kind of weight placed above any under-supported soling should always be questioned. Best functional performance will mostly come from those who are lighter in weight and possess either fairly normal gait mechanics or have a modest supinated gait.

As always, don;t always believe the hype. And shop wisely.

Re: Finding the right doctor using alcohol shots for neuromas View Thread
Posted by Dr. DSW on 3/23/09 at 17:36

Janetto,

You wrote...'You seem to have come close to what I ran into when I was searching for pain relief. Both doctors and podiatrists put me down, basically calling me stupid for having these neuromas taken out - basically because they didn't have any answers.'

When did I put you down or say anything even remotely negative??

If you don't want my help or honest opinion, than don't ask questions on this site. I simply told you that your case was very unique and I had not heard of a similar case in my 23 years of practice. I also stated that it would be very difficult to perform surgery on an area that many times due to abundant scar tissue.

Was there ANYWHERE in my original answer where I inferred that you were 'stupid' or where I was 'putting you down?'

I believe I did give you good, solid advice. My advice was simply that it was possible that the 'neuromas' good have been another soft tissue lesion that was not properly diagnosed, and prior to undergoing additional surgery or sclerosing alcohol injections, it would be prudent to simply have a small biopsy of one of the lesions, which is a very simple procedure.

I then recommended that this biopsy be sent to a major university teaching hospital pathology department for a 'second opinion' to make sure that the soft tissue lesion is in FACT a neuroma.

That was the content of my original post, there were absolutely no insults or inferences as to your intelligence or past decisions.

The reason I mentioned neurofibromas is because they fit the description of recurrent soft tissue lesions, containing nerve and fibrous tissue (similar to a neuroma whichis perineural fibrosis) and causes considerable pain.

Eillen: I have known my Service Rep at my Buick Dealership for years. He knows my cars better than I do. He is on my speed dial. I pay a little more but I get it back in spades and trust him to get it done right. I notice the service department is always full even in these times. It is highly unlikely it would ever close as it could stand own very easily as long as there are parts available. It is Tuesday and there was another major article in USA Today on how to deal with GM, etc. Secretary Paulson is testifying before Congress and he thinks it is best that they go the bankruptcy route. This way fewer people lose their jobs and the industry continues to operate on a scaled down version. All labor contracts could be torn up. One thing was mentioned that I do not understand. That was the Government would be responsible for all retirement payouts? I wonder why that would be? More and more people are jumping on the Chapter 11 bankruptcy band wagon as a way to handle this. Economic experts from universities and other specialist in the auto industry are also supporting this. Government may have to guarantee payments to vendors which would be enormous. Perhaps that is where the 25 billion dollars may come in. I do not see much happening until the new senators and congressmen are seated but do not know if GM has enough money to last that long. GM has actually been selling cars at a loss for some time. They are now withholding the kickbacks to the dealers on cars sold. That is about 2% on each car sold and will certainly not go over with the dealers. I worked for Avis for about 10 years and our franchise purchased around 1000 cars a year from local dealerships. Always made the annual trips to Detroit to see the new vehicles and hear the CEO's give their talks. I am wondering just what the car rental companies are going to do when it comes time to turnover their fleet? We normally turned the fleet over at around 40,000 miles and it was important to have vehicles which could be resold. At that time we had deals with the manufactures that they would take the vehicles back so we were leasing them. The manufactures would then wholesale them at large auctions. I often attend these to pick up some good values for the fleet. The company executive cars also showed up at these auction. I am sure those days are long gone. Currently you pay a premium at a car rental company for one the vehicles like a Toyota Pirus and you can rarely find one. You can bet as the rental companies turn their fleets over they will be buying heavily into cars like the Pirus. The rental cars in this nation must be well over 2-3 million. I knew one franchisee in LA that had over 100,000 himself. Add to that the corporate locations for Avis, Hertz, etc etc and there are perhaps 3 million rental cars. Detroit very much needs that business even if it is low margin. It keeps workers on the job and cash flow. Hope that 2% lost kickback to the dealers does not effect your husband. It sure will effect the dealer big time if he is selling many cars.

John H said ' How can GM compete with an average salary of $73 per hour which includes benefits while in Kentucky they are rolling out Toyotas with the average worker receiving $40 per hour.' I did a little quick math and figured that $73 per hour is $113,880 if 25% is taken right off the top for benefits. It's probably more than that though. Compare that to the $40 per hour of the average Toyota worker. If 25% is taken off the top for benefits, that's an average salary of $62,400. I'm guessing you got those figures from a newspaper article. I'm positive that most GM employees don't make $113,880. I know my husband makes between the two, leaning towards the Toyota employee's salary. My husband reports only to the General Manager and the Owner. So if you figure that my husband is middle management, I doubt that the average GM employee makes $113,880. Both of my neighbors work(ed) for Chrysler at the plant that is closing in Fenton, MO. Guessing salaries is difficult but I'm going to guess that they make around the same as the Toyota workers - $62,400 before benefits. Of course they do get a month off every summer. Actually they're both on permanent lay-off now. In fact, my husband is supposed to get a month of vacation a year (after 27 years at the same dealership) but he's never actually used that much but that's just him. He's one of those people that believe that if the shop was open, he should be there. At any rate, I believe those quoted salary figures for GM are inflated somehow. I know that union mechanics who work for dealers in the Midwest make $18-$25 an hour before benefits. They can make more if they're fast workers though because most labor contracts pay by the standard rate per job. It's confusing but I know a lot of techs that make more than my husband - especially if figured by the hours actually spent at work.

It's nice to hear that there are still customers who are loyal to dealership service. Most dealerships make sure that their techs are well trained. And most dealerships don't try to gouge a customer either. That kind of reputation gets out quick. I've found that the small shops often try to pad a bill more. That's based on my observations only.

What today's mechanics or techs have to keep up with is computer technology in the cars. You know how fast that changes. But including computer technology in cars have made them much more dependable. Remember carburetors and how they constantly needed adjustment? Fuel injectors have replaced them and that's only one example. A lot of GM cars can be easily diagnosed by pressing buttons inside the car and viewing the self-diagnostic display. With the inclusion of computerized systems and more reliable parts, less mechanics are now needed for the same size dealerships. That's a good thing. Except for the laid off techs. There will be an increase in techs needed is there is a change to a different fuel source. New technology always requires a break-in time. I was surprised that our new Tahoe can use ethonol as well as gasoline. I was even more surprised when my husband told me that he paid just $1.25 a gallon for the ethonol! However, ethonol fuel gets less mpg so my husband says that the two fuels usually price out the same.

John H also said ''Many are surviving on their parts and service department.' That is a very true statement. For years car sales have been slacking off and the service depts. (not parts-there's too small a margin) have kept a lot of dealerships afloat. There's a standard ratio of new cars sales to service dept. sales. Two years after the new car sale, the service dept. will start to see some business. If new car sales are down, two years later, service dept. sales will be down. That cycle has come to pass and now car dealerships are starting to close up because not even the service department has enough business to keep the dealership open.

Then there's the whole GM franchise market. GM loves to sell franchises. The have some kind of formula for figuring how many franchises will work in a given area or population or whatever they base their formula on. A lot of dealerships have been/will be going out of business because there is now a glut of extra dealerships. I read last week in a local news story that for every car assembly line job that is lost, three other local jobs are lost. That number varies by type of job lost. On average, when a new job is created, however, there is a seven times multiplier effect. So for many reasons, contraction of an industry is bad for everyone.

So what do I do? Nothin' honey. I have a BS in Business and a Master's in Information Systems but ten years ago I came down with Multiple Sclerosis. So you're probably thinking I'm on disability. Nope. A person has to work 7 of the 10 years before becoming disabled to receive disability. I was home taking care of my disabled son. Now why didn't I predict that? So if my husband leaves me I will have $0 income. But I don't have to worry about that. He knows I will hunt him down and kill him. I may be slow but I'm very determined. Where was I? Oh yea, not everyone working for GM is rollin' in dough. And yes, life is not fair but that's not the purpose of life.

Re: 14 y/o girl tests election tolerance with experiment View Thread
Posted by john h on 11/14/08 at 10:43

Larry M: If you look at racial tolerance in the long run. That is since the civil war we have come a long way. To think that in only 140 years we have gone from slavery to a Black President is almost unbelievable. Consider that nearly all the slaves were illiterate makes it even more unbelievable. Much of this has been accomplished by fiat. Looking at racial tolerance in the short run is very different. Electing President Elect Obama probably did not change any minds of those who remain intolerant. If anything, it probably made them more so. It did do something for the Blacks overall and gave them great pride and a sense of belonging. I do not think that was the intent of running Obama or was his intent. It is sort of an unintended consequence. Perhaps the most important thing to come out of the election.

Racial tolerance comes only with time. Children of bigoted parents are likely to be bigoted but not all of them. Some change with time as they are influenced by their classmates and going to school with blacks and playing sports with them, etc. After a few generations we continue to decrease the number of bigots. Government can actually slow the process down. They give Blacks unfair advantages in many areas and this serves to anger those other races that are suddenly disenfranchised. The most successful non whites are the children from Asia. They are at the head of the class in everything. They succeed way in proportion to their numbers. Probably comes from family values and hard work. Some of these are direct descendants of the coolies brought over to build railroads in the 19th century. They were just one step about slavery.

The Muslim culture has remained basically static since Mohamed wrote the Koran around 700 BC. There is very little compromise in the Koran for the true believers. Women today are treated much like they were since the time of Mohamed. Punishment for crimes is much the same as it was since 700 BC. The Muslim nations have failed to progress as have other nations who's culture has been centered around more liberal religions. It is not for a lack of money as many of the Muslim nations are flush with oil money but it is not spread around. The public faithful are in unrest and their anger has been directed by their religions leaders towards the west. The children are being taught from the time they enter school to hate non Muslims. To the point they are eager to die for the cause. It is unlikely the war on terror will ever end. Certainly not in anyone on this board's lifetime.

On the economy: It seems our politicians have no idea how to solve the financial crisis. I do not think they can by money alone solve our economic problems. Barney Frank now proposes a bailout of the auto industry. How can you rescue a business that produces a product consumers do not chose to buy and who's prices exceed the prices of competing products. The average wage of a Detroit auto worker including benefits is $70 per hour. The average wage of an auto worker in Kentucky manufacturing a Toyota is $40 per hour. The auto industry found it easier to cave in on a regular basis to Union demands to avoid strikes and achieve their large bonuses over the years. The Unions had no long view and in effect have priced themselves out of the world market place. There is no amount of money that can save this industry. It is fundamental economics 101. We are throwing good money after bad. Most failing industries should be allowed to fail so that better ones can replace them. I think we will end up with one or two of the big three remaining in business.

Our government cannot save all failing businesses and every home owner who cannot pay his mortgage. That is just plain arithmetic. Who do you chose to save or can you even save them. One family works hard and does without to buy their home. They read their mortgage and understood it. The neighbor across the street buys a big SUV and lives high and buys a big house. This high living neighbor gets a mortgage bailout while the other who did everything right and did without to keep his home gets nothing but an increase in taxes to pay for his neighbors lack of vision or even stupidity. There is something wrong here. Most of the jobs in the U.S. are generated by small business. They sink or swim with little help. I think the numbers are that 9 out of 10 new small businesses fail prior to the first 5 years. I am sorry to say the GM,Ford, and Chrysler have seen their day and they have been passed by more efficient and better managed companies. Portions of the auto industry will survive and that is the heavy truck industry. Our trailers, over the road tractors, and straight trucks are very much a viable business. They also pay wages that are out of line with the rest of the world so they in time had better get a handle on that. $70 and hour in wages and benefits amounts to over $145,000 per year average per employee. How many of you make that kind of salary and benefits. In 2006 a Four Star General had a pay of $176,000 a year. He likely was in Command of 100,000 men and women and hundreds of millions of dollars worth of assets. This is the highest rank you can attain except for the General of the Army or Air Force, etc. and there are only several of these. All Generals must be approved by Congress. Compare the responsibilities of the Four Star General and the average auto worker and look at the difference in pay. Their is no military union and none is allowed for good reason.

Businesses must be allowed to fail as that is part of the American economic system. Yes it will be painful. It always is. This nation is not dependant on any one industry. The nineties were a decade of boom and thinking the stock market would always rise. Does that not sound like 1929?

Re: Shoes for hallux rigidus that come in widths View Thread
Posted by john h on 10/10/08 at 22:58

There is no cure for hallux limitus or hallux rigidus. It is almost like arthritis. IMHO one should go for a Cheilectomy early on when you still have enough cartilage in the toe. No exercise or shots or anything will cure it or make it go away. You treat it or it will get worse. Some may maintain a steady state for a while and continue to function. Eventually what cartlidge you have will be lost and at that point your only option is a fusion or artificial joint. I would not consider an artificial joint if were active in anyway. Having had a Chelictomy it was a 30 minute surgery in the hospital and home in a few hours and if done properly your toe will work very well. If they do it right they will likely cut off some bone at 45 degree angles so the bones in the great toe joint line up correct and the toe is function like he wants. The surgeon will actually turn your toe up a full 90 degrees to insure he has done it correctly. Some doctors may only want to chisel off the spurs and do no major work on the bone but I do not like that from much of the research I have done. My Doctor also pointed that out to me. You want to ask your surgeon just exactly what he is going to do and to understand it thoroughly. It is also important that you start almost immediately to flex that toe ever day otherwise if you do not bend it early and often you will not maintain what the surgery provided you. I did several things including placing my foot against the wall and bending the hell out of the toe even though it hurt. The Doc said I would not hurt it. What you do after surgery is as important as the surgery. The toe I had done has done very well for over 8 years. The toe I did not have done hurts. I hope I have enough cartlidge left in the bad one. I hope to do that toe this winter. I have about a 2-3' scar on top of and inline with my toe. You can barely see it anymore. One guy I knew was a paratrooper and his job depended on him getting that toe 100%. After his cheilectomy and some time he is jumping out of aircraft once again and protecting us all. Best of luck people. In Little Rock tomorrow we have 46,000 women running in the Race For The Cure. You can bet there will be some ladies with toe problems out there.

Re: will shoe for mild pronation damage walker with mild underpronation? View Thread
Posted by Jeremy L, C Ped on 9/17/08 at 06:59

Although almost none of the Fleet Feet franchises have C Ped's on staff, as a whole they are very good in their in-house training. Their insert training is not as in-depth as it is with shoes, and some stores tend to be brand-centric with Superfeet. This brand makes high quality, functional inserts, but they are better now at offering a variety of models to suit different foot types.

As for your initial heel slippage among some of the different Saucony models you tried, I would assume it had nothing to do with the model itself. All of Saucony's Progrid line of shoes (Ride, Guide, Omni, etc) are made on exactly the same last shape, so fit is identical among them. What changes is the composition of the midsole to allow for variances in different people's gait. Your Guide probably held your heel better because that shoe had either been worn previously or the forefoot had been pre-flexed. Again, I wouldn't worry too much as the people working among that franchiser are typically good at what they do.

The price you found on Shear Ban is the wholesale/dealer amount for five sheets. As an individual, you will never go through that amount of material. Look through the phone book under Orthopedic Appliances. Being in an area with a Fleet Feet store, you should have a selection of this orthotists (or similar) surrounding you. At least one of them will stock Shear Ban, and they can cut and place an appropriate amount to the top side of your Superfeet insert.

Have fun with your walk.

I have evaluated these Alzner type inserts and even had a recent visit from one of the rival stores founders. They also sell the Alzner device. He apparently would like to persuade more allied health professionals to offer them in their offices. Personally I prefer to see more allied health professionals learn about proper biomechanical examination and prescribing or defer the dispensing of orthoses to professionals who actually have training and experience delivering this service ie; DPM’s orthotists and pedorthists.

They are not a particularly poor design nor are they a particularly ingenious one. They are in fact an over-the counter device made from a rubber material with a metatarsal pad built into them. They are not a functional orthosis made from a patient model such as plaster (or foam box) and therefore have very limited application for my practice. When a patient does not require custom functional orthoses I offer them an OTC that does have the capability of being heat molded and contains some degree of biomechanical customization.

I sell these to patients for sub $100 and it is a fair price. They are not manufactured to last for the length of time that a custom will and will not achieve the same degree of biomechanical correction that a custom will and are priced accordingly.

As Dr. Ed mentioned and I am in strong agreement that a comprehensive biomechanical examination is the hub of success with any orthotic regimen. The Good Feet Stores do not maintain a doctor of any type to offer this necessary service. In the absence of this they are simply selling you their one-size-fits-all device for prices that Medicare reimburses truly custom orthoses and they do so without the benefit to the consumer of having has seen a doctor who actually has the training to assess the problem and prescribe the appropriate correction.

They also cannot offer you any medical or physical medicine treatment that may be indicated for your condition. How many people go to a Good Feet Store for their low back pain or a rotator cuff tear from weekend warrior activities? Common sense would tell you that a doctor would be the most qualified person to see for evaluation of any condition or injury. Does anyone really believe that it is any different for a complex structure like the foot?

I see a lot of posts where the person types in all caps and has never posted here before under that name, claiming all sorts of positive things about the GFS and their inserts. I am going to ask the moderators of this site to see how many of these posts come from the same internet service provider or same geographic location because they do not pass the smell test. They appear to be from the type of person who has a financial interest in one of these franchises and is grasping at straws to find their next sale.

Do yourselves a favor and if you are having complaints in your feet, ankles or anywhere else, and seek a doctor to first evaluate the problem and then give you recommendations for care. As consumers we should ask family, friend and colleagues for a referral to a qualified professional before allowing some dilettante with an agenda to sell you something that is probably inadequate and unnecessary.

Even if you had to pay for an examination and a pair of OTC inserts you would still be ahead if you instead were sold an Alzner type device for $250 from a retail store. You would also have peace of mind and a doctor to consult if your problems needed further attention.

I have evaluated these Alzner type inserts and even had a recent visit from one of the rival stores founders. They also sell the Alzner device. He apparently would like to persuade more allied health professionals to offer them in their offices. Personally I prefer to see more allied health professionals learn about proper biomechanical examination and prescribing or defer the dispensing of orthoses to professionals who actually have training and experience delivering this service ie; DPM’s orthotists and pedorthists.

They are not a particularly poor design nor are they a particularly ingenious one. They are in fact an over-the counter device made from a rubber material with a metatarsal pad built into them. They are not a functional orthosis made from a patient model such as plaster (or foam box) and therefore have very limited application for my practice. When a patient does not require custom functional orthoses I offer them an OTC that does have the capability of being heat molded and contains some degree of biomechanical customization.

I sell these to patients for sub $100 and it is a fair price. They are not manufactured to last for the length of time that a custom will and will not achieve the same degree of biomechanical correction that a custom will and are priced accordingly.

As Dr. Ed mentioned and I am in strong agreement that a comprehensive biomechanical examination is the hub of success with any orthotic regimen. The Good Feet Stores do not maintain a doctor of any type to offer this necessary service. In the absence of this they are simply selling you their one-size-fits-all device for prices that Medicare reimburses truly custom orthoses and they do so without the benefit to the consumer of having has seen a doctor who actually has the training to assess the problem and prescribe the appropriate correction.

This is the first negative comment from a doctor that I have heard about NAM.

Thus far no nefarious characters have shown up at my office, phoned me or disturbed me in any way for my views and none of my colleagues should fear recrimination from Axiom for their OPINIONS.

I am not diminishing your concerns DC,but let's face it, those who have come here making assertions that are not relevant, nasty and derisive comments and generally hostile posts are not helping matters and I am tired of being the sole Don Quixote in this western.

I respect what Dr. W says, but in this case I disagree with Dr W. This is just a heads up on YET ANOTHER LAWSUIT - Those conniving con artists and fools at Axiom have brought a whole heap of trouble into this spinal decompression industry. Every law firm in the country is smelling blood and money, and not necessarily in that order. I read this blog and disgusts me because some, not all of the machines tend to help some patients (for how long has yet to be finally mitigated or studied). My office partner just recently served on Peer Review Panel for my home state’s Chiro Board regarding a mistreatment/diagnosis/injury on a Spina machine. This poor guy bought during Nam’s FDA Warnign Letter woes and was never told to not use his machine. The wolves showed their teeth as soon as the panel convened and now they have all been subpoenaed for testimony in a class action against this manufacturer as well. To add to it, the same firm is going after Media West/Westfall for their brochures. Evidently all of the doctors in the brochure are Axiom’s and that has inflamed the aggrieved. They smell blood I tell you because they think Axiom is behind and/or supports the brochure and is profiting from it. There is an FTC issue in them, I am not clear what it is. I think the FDA is also involved now, but since I bought some, at the advice of my med school roomie in CA, I am now on their hit list. My atty is working out the details of my testimony. Before this is over we will have all spent more on attorneys than the damn machine is worth. Thanks Axiom.

Dr. Hoang

The prevarications and spin from Axiom Worldwide continue to mount and now we have a customer of theirs validating my professional concerns about their business practices.

I had heard that upon being investigated with regard to the validity of your advertising (a script which was no doubt provided by the DRX 9000's manufacturer, Axiom Worldwide) that you became 'persona non grata' and that their customers were notified of this.

I notice that the recurrent theme of 'what have we done wrong' dominates their memos:

'Axiom believes it important to note that the information regarding the Dr. Hoang case is being used by Axiom's competitors in an obvious effort to damage Axiom's credibility and as an effort stop the momentum of success that has been achieved with the DRX9000....'

Are the purchasers of these machines so obtuse as to dismiss the pattern of obfuscation and spin in this statement by Mr. Dixon and to miss its real meaning?

First I have never witnessed any legal document accusing the other players in this industry of advertising malfeasance, state board action or investigation by any state, federal or professional licensing agency. Has anyone else reading this?

Second where are the lawsuits initiated by Axiom Worldwide leveled against their 'adversaries' (competitors is the term they use in official documents) for what they suggest is a concerted effort to damage their reputation?

It is apparent to me that all of the legal troubles for the doctors themselves have arisen out of the marketing, procedural billing and coding, FDA clearance and studies Axiom provided to its customers when they purchased their machine.

Now that this obviously specious information has been questioned by professional organizations and state prosecutors it is suggested that these doctors acted alone and that this is all a grand conspiracy by their competitors.

Axiom appears to have hung even Dr. Altadonna out in the wind and distanced themselves from him publicly. Prior to the lawsuits they sure as hell found it convenient to utilize his marketing and disseminate his materials to perspective buyers. Now Mr. Dixon claims that they have 'cleaned up' their marketing since 2006.

Well which is it Gary; a vast conspiracy by your competitors or that your marketing was indeed misleading and now you are trying to back peddle and blame the person that you hired to market to the chiropractic profession this exercise in avarice?

It cannot be both since you as a company chose to pursue this marketing paradigm, the company that you outsourced to provide billing, the FDA clearance that was advertised, the NASA space connection advertising and most importantly to me as a clinician the Gionis study.

The consequences of your choices as a company with regard to all of these issues mandate that Axiom Worldwide must now accept the large part of the blame for the current troubles surrounding the DRX 9000 and the schism within the industry.

The only people who will perceive this differently are you, the manufacturer of the DRX 9000 and those clients of yours who are so financially invested that to admit that this entire system is built on the stones of avarice and deceit would prove monetarily devastating.

You do not represent chiropractic, nor do you represent the thousands of competent, caring doctors of chiropractic who tend to their patients every day in this country. Don't insult my profession by intimating that your product is an accepted and standard chiropractic modality taught in college. It is at best an adjunct to the services that we have provided for over a century, safely, ethically and validated clinically.

A month or so a go I presumed Hillary was dead in the water and there was no way she could possible win. Now, I must backtrack and say she does have a 'slight' chance to win this election. Who would have ever guessed there was a Reverend Wright hiding in the wood shed. This guy has single handily done the most damage to a candidate who had the election locked up I have ever seen. The Gallop Poll conducted from Thursday through Saturday had Hillary for the first time since February leading Obama among Democrats by 7%. This is flat out amazing. Hillary cannot overcome the committed delegates it seems but now the Super Delegates must take into consideration that among Democrats she is now the favorite and also the one most likely to defeat McCain. What is a Super Delegate to do? How will the Florida and Michigan fiasco play-out? Should their voters be disenfranchised? This is a tough question. This will go to the convention and will be decided by people who were appointed not elected. Not very much a democratic way to elect your Presidential candidate. Carl Rove who is actually a very smart man said this week that there was no way Hillary could beat Obama at the convention due to the Rules Committee and Obama was a shoe in. Either way the Hillary supporters are going to walk away from this angry. If by chance Obama should lose out I think the Democrats would have a major revolt from African Americans. This is going to be one of the most interesting conventions in many decades.

There are going to be some really tough TV adds when the national campaign starts if Obama is the nominee; You can expect to see a lot of the Reverend Wright. The recent poll also indicated that 38% of the people believe that Obama has some of the same perceptions as the Reverend Wright. I think the Reverand was was correct when he said this. Anyway, there will be a contest and the Democrats are not a shoe in as was expected a few months ago. In fact the recent polls have him ahead against either Hillary or Obama. We have about 6 months to go and who knows what else is in the wood shed of any of these candidates?

Over the past few years non-surgical spinal decompression devices have become the latest craze within the Chiropractic field. The question is, are they really effective? This has become a billion dollar business for manufacturing companies, franchises, and Dr's.

Patients are told that this device can actually prevent the need for invasive back surgery.

Insurance companies do not cover this procedure therefore patients need to pay for this treatment out of pocket with NO GUARANTEES. Many Dr's. bill the insurance company if the patient has insurance and no ability to pay. This is accomplished by using fraudulent codes in order to obtain payment.

Many Dr's will claim that the device they are using is FDA approved when in fact it is not.
According to the FDA there is only one device that has been cleared by the FDA.

Furthermore, clinical studies on non-surgical spinal decompression are INCONCLUSIVE.

Manufacturing companies are cranking out all sorts of these devices and they NOT approved for effectiveness or safety!!!!

Please DO NOT consider this procedure as an option until you consult with your primary treating physician, contact the FDA for clearance on the device that is being used, and check to see who the manufacturing company is then check for past violations.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK! It is about your health and your hard earned money. Please realize that this is a way to offer false hope for many that are vulnerable due to pain and suffering.

Non surgical spinal decompression devices can very well cause further injuries.

Do not be taken advantage of. Many of these devices are nothing more than a scam with false promises!

Everyone else gets richer at your expense!

Because of arthritis/bone spur causing pain on the top of my foot, one doctor proposd fusing the TMT joint. A 3-month recovery period was noted. Is this a major procedure(with the potential for creating other problems) or is this fairly straightforward approach for solving this problem? A small incision and chiseling the bone spur was another alternative proposed by another doctor. Thanks for any insights......Ellen

I have arthritis/bone spurs on the top of the foot at the joint which is below where the top shoelaces are tied (the 'high point' of the joint bones). This is causing me considerable pain whenever I walk. I met with my podiatrist who said we could make a small incision in the top of the foot and chisel away the bone spurs and then stitch it up. At his recommendation, I got a second opinion. That opinion was a fusion of those same joints - a procedure which seems to have a considerable recovery time. So, given that 2 different alternatives have been presented, I'm wondering if conceptually both are equally effective. It would seem that whith chiseling the spurs, they'd simply come back again later? Since 2 doctos have proposed two things, I'm wondering what the upside and downside of each is.

I am with you on that Jim. I wonder if the Democratic Party will change their system after this election is over. If they do not they are complete idiots. Disenfranchising voters seems to be as bad in a primary as in a national election I would think. Could the party just come out and say we will not accept delegates from Maine because we do not like them? What law would prevent the party big wigs from doing anything they like? As I understand it as of now Hillary leads with votes from the Electoral College who actually elect the President as she has won the big states with the most electoral votes. It is highly unlikely the college would vote her in but there is historical precedent for the college voting in a President who did not have the most popular votes. I think it has been some years since a President has won with over 50% of the popular vote. Could be wrong here but think I read that.

Personally I hope Senator Clinton stays in this race until the convention. For the good of the Democratic party she should withdraw immediately. Her big gaff a couple of days ago where she claimed to have landed in Bosnia while taking ground fire was a flat out lie. She described this mission in her book. Sinbad the comedian who was on the flight has been making jokes about it and TV pictures show her greeting a little girl as she gets off the plane. All this may be a simple loss of memory but we do not need a President who forgets such things. It has been 38 years since I was in Vietnam I can pretty much remember the details of every-time I was shot at and that was a lot of times. One does not easily forget such things. She talked about cork-screwing down for the landing. That is standard procedure in such areas.

The Democrats seem to be imploding over this Hillary/Obama mess. If Obama does not win even the pundits say the Blacks will likely sit out the election. My thoughts is the Blacks would also riot in the streets. Hillary has to know this which makes her even more scary as she is putting herself over the party and the people. She indeed must feel an entitlement to be President. Big mouth James Caravelle has come to her defense by calling Governor Richardson a 'Judas'. J Leno and the night time shows are having a ball with this. Last night Leno had Obama in a plane talking to someone while the Reverend Wright was on the wing looking in screaming some of his sermons. Leno of course gives Bush just as much.

I originally thought the Democrats would run away with this election but now I think we have a real horse race. This Reverend Wright thing is not going away and has scared a lot of people. If the Dems lose it will be of their own doing. Hard to believe that two very big states in Florida and Michigan are going to be disenfranchised. If I was a voter their I would be very angry.

Tony the GFS insert is not a custom medical device or it would be prescribed by a doctor. Not every patient needs custom orthoses, but the staff at GFS are not the ones qualified to decide this. Period.

Feet change over time and in some cases rapidly. Again GFS are not the ones to make this call and since they staff no medically trained and licensed physicians, their assessment for the need of these devices is not based on clinical reasoning but instead on salesmanship.

I have been wearing the same orthoses for well over two years. It is made of composite material and it has not lost its shape or strength in that time. I could invariably end up wearing these for several years as long as my feet and the devices do not undergo radical changes. A well prescribed and manufactured orthosis can be a great value.

On the other hand there is absolutely no empirical data to suggest that GFS inserts 'correct problems in the feet'. They are in fact based on outdated previous off-the-shelf designs that have long been abandoned by the orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) and related professions.

They are a consummate rip-off, not medically necessary nor valuable clinically and the lifetime guarantee is a farce. Its easy to warranty a non-custom product that costs pennies to make in mass numbers. Not so with custom devices prescribed by a doctor. The materials and equipment used to manufacture custom orthoses are far more advanced and costly. They produce a superior product as well.

Heart surgeons routinely perform procedures that have to be revisited months or years down the road. Does this mean that heart surgeons are profiteers because the balloons used in angioplasty fail or lose their integrity?

I wonder how many of the people defending these charlatn retail outfits own a franchise.

Ok, I feel the obligation to share my experience and insight with the Good Feet Stores. I'm a current Good Feet Store representative and seller and I shall be as objective I can, so please hear me out.

First of all, I want to explain to everyone that Good Feet sellers are NOT certified in any way nor do they have any medical experience whatsoever. They just take some training on how the arch supports are SUPOSED to work and how they should sell. However, the people that designed these insoles (not the people that fabricate them) are, in fact, podiatrists and professionals in the field.

For comparison purposes, I've seen many custom-made orthotics and have found out that most of them do not have any metatarsal support at all, while most GFS arch supports do. So I'm not exactly convinced that those are the way to go either.

On the other hand, HOW COME NO ONE HAS TOUCHED THE FACT THAT ALL FEET ARE NOT THE SAME? They are not designed to be a perfect fit and, moreover, work exactly the same for everyone. For some GFS arch supports shall be just what they were looking for, while more others will find that they don't help them at all; that's without metioning the fact that if the person's feet are already sore or ill, it shall take more time for them to get used to the arch.

If you are worried about the no-refund policy, you should be aware that most arches out there can not be returned either (although, with proper investigation, you shall find some that do). This applies even more to the custom-made ones. The problem remains in the price. It seems to be much more unethical when you have to pay so much and not be able to have your money back even if the product didn't do for you what it promised it did. Have you not yet tried some Foot Lockers or Champs insoles and tried taking them back?

You should have to keep in mind that these orthotics have a lifetime warranty. You might wonder what makes the warranty so special, well, all supports lose their shape and use after a period of time. The GFS guys offer the chance of getting a new pair every time yours need changing. I'm not very familiar with any other arch support that can offer the same. Does that not justify the price?

One thing I will admit to anyone, tough, is the fact that, Good Feet Stores are a franchise that has made their prime goal the number of supports they can sell and not the number of people they can help. It has gone to the point where workers will try to sell 'the package' even if the person does not feel good, explaining that you need to gradually get used to them, in order to raise their sales and, possibly, earn a comission. I know; I've been there and I've done that. Still, my friends, that does not have anything to do with the product being good or not.

I've heard some podiatrists say that GFS orthotics are excellent and constantly refer patients to our store. I've received prescriptions myself. On the other hand, I've heard from customers that some doctors say that our arch supports are definetly not the way to go. Has this not been the issue with every other thing in medical treatments since the beginning of time?

I, myself, use an excerciser and a mantainer (visit goodfeet.com) arch support with amazing results. My feet do not feel sore at all when I come home at night and my back pain has gone completely. Now I cannot go around without 'em. I have to say, tough, it took noticeably longer than I knew to get used to them. I use my own example to show that not everyone will get the same results.

My, rather poor experience, has taught me that the client should be offered the chance to choose if he feels good with the product or not and, of he's not sure if he should use it, I always advice him to visit his podiatrist to ask. I also always let the customer know about the policies BEFORE they buy anything. This kind of treatment has given me pretty good results, both in customer-seller relations and sales. Unfortunately, not every seller has that kind of work ethic in their head.

I really hope this helps in determining whether trying them or not, at the end of the day, the imprint is free so, what do you have to lose?

I would seriously like continuing this conversation so feel free to write to me whenever at melvin.perdomo at hotmail.com.

The latest polls have Hillary with a 20% lead in Pennsylvania. It appears a certainity that the Super Delegates are going to chose the next Presidential choice for the Democrats. If they do not go for Obama there will be some riots and you can take that to the bank. If he has won more voters and more states and goes into the convention with more delegates he should be the winner. With the dumb rules the Dems have come up with the Presidency could be decided not by voters but party big wigs. If you cannot run a better system than that how are you going to run a nation or a health care system? They have not even decided how to have a 'do over' in Florida and Michigan. How can you disinfranchise two large states? Figure that out Nancy Polosi? It will soon be to late to have a 'do over' or at least have a practical one.

Barrack Obama's father was Muslim and from Kenya and they are simply trying to play on peoples fears to rally votes for their side..........the moderates, centrists and independents got a full belly of unethical behavior from elected conservative Congressmen, Senators, Governors and Lobbyists..........so keep in mind these are the same people who voted for and elected them. Why would we expect ethical behavior from them??? This is exactly why people are crossing over. They have had enough of this kind of politics.

I would like to address this to the professionals reading and posting to this board with reference to the spinal decompression topic. I hope that this also helps the general public in understanding the difference of opinion among professionals that is a constant theme in these posts.

I believe that we have exhausted this thread and that now it has turned into a somewhat unprofessional mud-slinging debate. The prospective patients reading this I am sure do not appreciate one line quips and verbal slams of the doctors providing this treatment by as yet unidentified and anonymous doctors. I am certain that spinal decompression has a place in health care but more independent studies need to be conducted and the marketing needs to be cleaned up in order to be taken seriously.

For those unaware there is a major division in the methods employed by chiropractors as a profession.

One side of the coin has deeply 'philosophical' roots and adheres to the 'subluxation' theory of dis-ease and healing whereby all maladies are caused by spinal mis-alignments which reduce nervous system flow and the vital force that heals the body intuitively. They are called the 'straights' and do not employ physical medicine modalities (physiotherapy/physical therapy). They are competent and caring DC's who truly believe in their methods and in my experience among the finest at delivering this type of health care.

The other school, which includes my practice paradigm, employs PT and integrative methods often working in concert with other allied professionals. They too are idyllic in their methodology and tend to focus more on evidence based outcomes, occupational, sports injuries and are termed 'mixers'.

I would suggest that very few 'straight' chiropractors own a spinal decompression machine because on the whole they adhere to the spinal adjustment as the primary (and often only) suitable treatment for many conditions. For the public who is not largely aware of the difference in practice styles available in chiropractic the confusion and resultant infighting may prove to be a huge cognitive barrier in making a decision as to what provider to seek for help.

If you are in fact a doctor and have something to contribute you should post your name and credentials in the interest of objectivity and credibility. I strongly disagree with taking this infighting to a public board and denigrating your colleagues to make a point. This is very unprofessional and self-serving. We are all aware that there is controversy surrounding these machines and one company in particular. I feel that the biggest obstacle that we face as chiropractors is the image that we present to the public by engaging in these verbal battles publicly and not showing the respect and professional courtesy due to each other that I see within the medical community.

Basically we are our own worst enemy and some of the posts in this thread serve only to deepen the divide and diminish our standing and credibility. Your brother is your brother not your enemy. Many of our colleagues face a difficult battle because they bought into the fantastic marketing claims of the companies selling these machines. That may make them foolish in one respect but all the same they completed the same rigorous education and licensing standards and deserve our respect and support while these issues are decided in court and in the research.

Act professionally and you will be treated with a level of respect and admiration commensurate with your education, knowledge and skills. Act like an anonymous thug and you serve only yourself and not the greater good of our beloved profession. Please think about this and offer the public a professional alternative that is worthy of their respect. Patient’s do not come here to witness professional schisms but seek the advice and knowledge that you are uniquely trained to deliver. If the doctors who practice spinal decompression want to offer this service to their patients and perform this ethically then I personally applaud them for their dedication and have no issue with them.

While I do not agree with much of the marketing that has accompanied the DRX9000 in the past, let’s hope that since patients are choosing this course of therapy that our colleagues are the best educated and trained in its use and delivery. Let’s support them and cease this bickering and he said she said and keep the discussion on topic and professional.

It can only serve to better the profession and access to our care.

Hutchison, 53, serves on the Armed Services Committee and drew attention after the Navy Tailhook scandal by voting against four-star retirement for Admiral Frank Kelso.

Wade] that legalized abortion.' (Ft. Worth Star Telegram, 12/19/04)

The truth of the matter is, Senator Hutchison is on record as supporting legal abortion until viability.

She has said she wants the pro-life plank removed from the Republican National Platform. She serves on the Honorary Advisory Board of The WISH List, a political action committee that raises money for Republican female congressional candidates who are pro-abortion-choice, from which she received $34,500 in her first Senate race.

Senator Hutchison is not pro-life, but if you rely solely on her voting record as presented by NRLC or others who track congressional votes, you would never know that.

Additionally severe posting angles in the fore and rearfoot especially can influence the knees and the IT band.

If your orthoses are causing you new knee complaints then they probably are too aggressive.

First of all, almost none of the people working in those kinds of retail locations have any real professional training. I can state that in my region there are four of those stores, and only one C Ped exists among their entire franchise payroll. In addition to knowing very little about actual foot function and pathology, their focus is restricted to pre-molded inserts and poorly conceived and constructed custom diabetic inserts.

What they do know well is their script. In fact, they know it so well that their presentations come off as being both earnest and reliable. You unfortunately fell victim to their sales pitch, and failed to recognize that what helped relieve your pain was a prescription device, and not some overpriced Mc-Orthotic. Their devices are designed to place the apex of the medial arch under the metatarsal-cuneiform joint, specifically to accommodate a weakened, collapsing midfoot. If your prescribed functional need varies in any way, the pain you describe from wearing such a device is common.

I strongly recommend that you extract a refund from this particular shill. All of these franchise elements have money back guarantees, although not all are diligent in enforcing this policy. Should they resist, I would certainly bring the matter up with whatever local consumer advocacy you have in your area.

Next, you should return to whoever prescribed/made the orthotics that do work for you. Describe what your fit needs are, and they will likely have a new device made from your existing mold that meets both your functional and wear requirements. If they cannot, you can ask for a referral to another professional with whom they rely who will faithfully fill your orthotic prescription.

I used a measuring tape and my foot is still 1/2 inch wider on the operated side so I need to let the swelling go down before the heels come out... If anyone has access to a hot tub I found that really sped up my recovery because i was able to get the rolling motion on the joint.

Linn your provider should either provide you shoe recommendations based on his exam of your foot or refer you to a person his patients have success with. There are many good shoe companies and styles out there the problem is when you step into a retail store objectivity seems to fly out the window.

As for putting a removable insole over a custom orthosis, that obviates the point that we are trying to make that retail is not always a great clinical paradigm for specific needs. Most clinical pedorthists do not work for the aforementioned stores nor do they own a franchise. A few do but they are rare.

The length of the orthotic device is typically always the same, the top cover is what you are referring to. A 2/3 or 3/4 is great for dress and easily fit into almost all your shoes. A full length is my preference for tennis shoes, running shoes and all boot sports. There is no difference as to the effect of the device based on the top cover length.

Posted by Jeremy L, C Ped on 2/13/08 at 20:39

Actually, the orthotic method I described is precisely what helps relief pressure from fascial scar tissue. Sometimes, the depression is acute and isolated; other times, it's called a fascial groove that runs the entire length of the medial fascial band. It all depends what is necessary for the individual patient's need.

As for Good Feet and Foot Solutions, there are acute differences. Good Feet (Foot FX in some markets) focus on selling diabetic footwear and wildly expensive OTC inserts. The vast majority of their stores do not have C Peds on staff, and have a very formulaic selling procedure. They are the last places I suggest those people with earnest foot pain to venture.

Foot Solutions is now the largest comfort footwear franchise in the country. All of their locations are required to have at least one C Ped on staff (although there is the possibility that the original 40 or so stores may be exempt from this requirement). Most of their certificants got their training through the Foot Solutions offices, which historically have the lowest boards passing rate in our specialty. That said, there are some C Peds in their midst who are honestly motivated, experienced, and skilled. It's really a case by case basis on how versatile the professional staffer is per location. Their franchise paradigm is based on selling custom orthotics made through their Amfit programming. Although all their locations have the means to perform digital cast modifications on site (as Larry does), most do not. The resultant devices are not always as effective as they could be. They also work through Medicare's diabetic shoe program, and do a better than adequate job in stocking a variety of healthier footwear choices.

Other reliable shoe franchises/chains include The Walking Company, Comfort One Shoe, and Richey & Co. (among others that I am not as familiar with, out West).

As far as shoe brands, the ones you mentioned offer well made models. I'm afraid I don't have enough information to adequately provide my own recommendations for you. Good luck, and happy shopping.

I feel compelled to add to Dr. Wedemeyer's comments. Foot Solutions is an international franchise whose purpose is to fill a niche in providing personalized shoe evaluation and fitting in a standardized format. All locations are required to have at least one C Ped on staff; however, not all the grandfathered franchises chose to meet that obligation. Further, the vast majority of their C ped's are trained in pedorthics in the scope of the Foot Solutions paradigm. More succintly, how to sell more shoes and inserts ... OTS and custom options. Most (not all) of their franchise owners have little to no background in shoes, biomechanics, or lower extremity pathology. The truth is that the Foot Solutions school has the lowest board passing rate of all ABC approved educators. (For the record, Scholl and Temple have the highest pass rates)

Although they do a healthy business in OTS inserts, their corporate prefers their stores demonstrate an sell custom inserts. This is done through Amfit machines, which are provided through the franchiser. The milling and construction of the inserts is done through a network of internal Foot Solutions labs located throughout the country. Most international locations have their insert milling done through pre-existing Amfit labs that have no affiliation with Foot Solutions. As Dr. Wedemeyer shared, their custom devices are many times basic in nature. Those with serious and chronic pathology should consider receiving additional opinions in addition to FS.

Of greatest importance, plantar fasciitis is best controlled when a variety of treatments are provided concurrently. It's always best to receive the assistance of your doctor so a proper plan can be geared to your needs. If part of that plan includes a direct referral to your local Foot Solutions, I would have to assume that the particular franchise has won the confidence of your doctor.

Mark orthoses are only one treatment, but a very valid one when a person's PF can be attributed to biomechanical faults. When you say that you have tried every orthotic out there I wonder if that also means a custom casted orthosis prescribed by a doctor?

One very important factor in treating PF with an orthosis is the control of resupination of the foot, which is not always corrected from what I see beng brought into my office. Also in PF a high medial arch tends to aggravate the PF by over-compensating the above. I typically start out with a less agressive medial arch than the CBAS or Sole Support type devices or give them a temporary insert that I can modify until the PF heals.

A slight valgus or leaning toward the inside of the forefoot is usually much more comfortable. There is also the first ray or big toe function to consider because as you go to push off the foot compacts and the PF tightens to act as a spring Windlass mechanism). An aggressive medial arch causes a more intense Windlass moment and only very seasoned providers seem to be aware of this. Also your footwear is equally important to the process.

The retail chain that you mention sells direct heat molded and off the shelf devices since they cannot prescribe the appropriate mechanical correction. Their entire paradigm seems to be a high medial arch DMO device and an expensive MBT shoe. They have overhead and franchise fees....

Health care must be publicly funded and privately supported. View Thread
Posted by Tim M. on 1/27/08 at 10:51

I have never suggested that a public health care system would, or should, pay for every single elective treatment. I am infuriated when I hear of insurance plans which pay for Viagra, infertility treatments and hair loss medication.

By the same token, I am infuriated when I hear of insurance companies NOT paying for the very best treatment for life changing conditions such as your wife's macular degeneration or my wife's glaucoma. Our eyes are not 'optional equipment.' As I have watched my father-in-law struggle with glaucoma, and the insurance companies which declined some treatments which could have saved his sight, I have learned that going blind has emotional, physical and financial consequences which go FAR beyond the blindness itself. I can tell you right now that the way I would 'deal with that,' as far if my wife's insurer ever questioned a treatment or prescription her doctor recommended, would be to make sure every news organization in our city knew about it and what my lawyer intended to do about it.

Leaving health care administrative duties to the private sector will result in the further erosion of American health in general. This is because the profit motive is a priority which is at odds with the whole philosophy of the medical profession: 'First, do no harm.' We cannot leave the choices of who gets treatment and who doesn't to some bean counters who make their decisions on the basis of some sort of monetary Darwinism; where the needs of the stockholders take precedence over the needs of the sick.

As other countries have shown, the best health care must be funded by the taxpayers, administered by the government and personal physicians at a very local, autonomous level so as to avoid a wasteful bureaucracy, and supported by giving private industry the money they need to have constant improvements in treatments, medications and the speed of their delivery.

By the way, I don't think my feet are 'optional equipment,' either. And when I hear some industry tool like this Dr. Gratzer ask, sneeringly, if we should really require every insurance company to provide podiatric services, my retort will be the question 'How about if I take a ballpeen hammer and give the bottom of your foot a couple of good, solid, chisel-pushing-quality whacks every morning, for a couple of weeks, just before you get out of bed?

I believe that although Julie makes a good point that this board is not the appropriate place for debate, that I, like the other providers on here must respond when we feel that the information being presented is not in line with accepted standards of practice or questionable.

This thread began with a question asked by Maria and was answered appropriately by Dr. Ed and Jeremy. What galled me and forced me to respond was the fact that in spite of the efforts to provide accurate and medically correct information to Maria, Dr. Kiper once again turned this into an 'us and them' schism and promptly went on to not only negate and refute the quality and accuracy of their posts but to sell HIS product.

That is precisely when this thread became a debate and acrimonious to the doctors and providers who post here. Should we as health care providers just up and retreat whenever what many of us would classify as misinformation or absence of factual basis is presented and possibly harmful to the poster? I bet everyone would agree this is not the case and it certainly won't happen when I see it. If I were on here making bold claims and promoting my own ideas and opinions for monetary gain I would hope that I would experience the same objections.

To respond to Dr. Kiper
1. No I was not aware that the SDO has not been advocated by clinical studies in reducing peak plantar pressures. I was asking you since that is ALL that you ever talk about and I have not personally ever seen any studies on the SDO. The researcher has very impressive credentials. Hey tell me if I'm wrong but he does resemble the gentleman that I met who was by your side at the PFOLA conference. Coincidence? Isn't he your business partner?

2. I believe that the TekScan sales rep was the one who was nervously laughing when you asked him several times if the SDO scans appeared to confirm that the device was 'functional'. In all honesty I may have been laughing because it struck me as amusing and predictable that within two minutes of meeting you while I was reviewing the TekScan that the conversation was diverted towards your product. Personally I wasn't comfortable with it given that I don't agree with your claims regarding it. I wasn't at the PFOLA merely to edify your ego or sell my services but to learn. Sorry that didn't work out for you.

From what I recall you had to prompt the salesman several times using the word functional before he relented. Somehow I didn't find the whole scenario convincing. Let me ask you this, did any of the other hundreds of doctors, pedorthists, researchers and vendors demo this test? Did any of them offer to fund a study or become a retailer for you technology? Sorry Dennis but you opened the door on this one, the fact is that the rest of your colleagues view your product and claims with the same skepticism that you have encountered here.

3. Since were making this personal and you're alluding to the training in pedorthics as inadequate, let me ask you this; why do so many podiatrists and health care providers have the initials C.Ped after their name in this field? Maybe it is because not one doctoral level program deals with fabrication, biomechanics and dispensing with the depth of the C.Ped course despite it's comparatively shorter duration. I resent the implications of that remark especially after having spent years studying biomechanics in my own program and proudly being a licensed pedorthist. How would you feel if I made a comment that podiatric training is not equal to medical training? You're comparing apples and oranges and doing so in a very demeaning manner.

4. As for an SDO AFO I do understand the concepts behind stabilization of the foot and ankle well enough to rebut this notion. CMT is not a pathology which needs to be braced but 'ACCOMODATED' and the study probably fell on dear ears because clinically it is overkill. Larry has discussed this foot type with you ad nauseum and he has years of experience with these patients. Ill bet dollars to doughnuts that neither him nor Jemery has ever used silicone as a structural material for an AFO. As for drop foot many of them can be braced with a functional AFO so this is misleading. As Laurie points out the study was a small sample and it only discusses motion in one plane. AFO's are often utilized to control triplanar motion as we know and silicone will NEVER achieve that on it's own. The study is so weak that no mention is even made of the shell or design of the device.

In sum I have listened to your ideas and don't agree that your design is the Holy Grail of altered foot biomechanics and you do. We will never agree and as I pointed out prior you need to convince a larger audience and at least give the appearance that you have the patients best interest in mind and not your own. In the absence of this you will be found not credible and assailed for your broad claims and specious evidence.

I didn't shake your hand, concede and become a disciple of Kiperian logic and physics because I was not convinced, plain and simple. You're so single minded that you don't even see how your dogmatic pursuit of this solitary treatment modality has blinded you to everything else available and proven clinically. You need to take a step back and reassess your sales paradigm and back it up with proof.

Publish some studies and get your product into use and acceptance, heck even find one insurer who will reimburse for it and I will gladly take another look.

You cannot convince the minds of educated people without evidence. Evidence is unbiased.

Lastly I find the practice of stepping on sound and solid advice presented by your colleagues and the providers here to sell your product unquestionably fatuous and inappropriate.

Semantics 101 View Thread

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_doctor

Interesting definition. Oddly I did not attend college to become a 'medical doctor' so the semantic arguments is not a surprise to me given the fact that I do not practice medicine. I also believe that doctors of podiatry, doctors of chiropractic, doctors of naturopathy, doctors of physical therapy, doctors of psychology and any other doctorate level program produces a health care provider with a unique license and skill set. Only MD's have an unlimited license and a minority actually treat the foot and ankle.

Although DC's are physicians in Medicare and general insurance and are not limited to the spine, in Medicare they are limited to reimbursement for manipulation of the spinal column. God forbid Medicare would reimburse those of us who perform 'physiotherapy' (distinct from physical therapy because well, there are physical therapists and protecting their domain falls under the medical communities purview). Semantics.

It is late and I ruminate on because seeing what took place on the board here got me thinking about territory, turf and ego. I feel a better lexicon for the 'ask the doctors' board would be 'ask the doctor or allied health professional'. I have yet to see a post response from a medical professional by this definition above.

The podiatrists on this board have the broadest license for foot and ankle treatment and the greatest acumen for the 'medical' and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle and yet their license is limited to that paradigm of care. Surprising to me I have learned that podiatrists are extremely knowledgeable in regard to the effect that other body systems and pathology overlap, neurology, systemic disease etc.

The point is that there is a variety of practitioners on this site whose area of expertise and treatment overlap and they all bring a unique skill set to this site. Perhaps if each are more mindful that medical treatment of the foot and ankle is the sole domain of the MD and DPM and only answer questions related to our skill set and clinical treatment experience, there will be much less confusion, didactic argument and schism.

Why does the GOP want to prevent black Americans from voting View Thread
Posted by marie on 7/30/07 at 16:28

First, challenging a voter, while unsavory, is not illegal in most states. However, using vote caging as a way to challenge a voter is very much illegal. Voter Caging is the process by which a potential voter is place a on challenge list using pseudo-intimidation tactics. It is illegal under the Voting Rights Act and carries a felony charge. One of these tactics is when a person is sent a piece of certified material that they have to sign for. Exactly what the material is is irrelevant. It could be a survey, a brochure, etc. The goal of the tactic is to 'confirm' you are who you say you are by confirming your address. The only problem is (1) people move, (2) the person may not have been there that day(s), or (3) perhaps they just don't sign for certified material if they don't know who it is from (not everybody wants republican propaganda). In any case, a 'DO NOT FORWARD' is also attached to the mail. That way if you don't sign for the mail and it is returned, your name is 'caged' on list of voters to challenge at a later date. And by later, I mean 1-2 months before election day. And inorder for someone's name to be remove from a challenge list, they have to go to court. And you probably have guessed that by the time your case comes before a judge the election is over. Eventually the voter may have their name expunged, but not before being disenfranchised.

To The Point News arrow Kelly's Panorama arrow Members Only Articles arrow OPERATION ARROWHEAD RIPPER
OPERATION ARROWHEAD RIPPER Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly
Friday, 22 June 2007

Imagine it's June 7, 1944, the day after the D-Day invasion. You pick up your newspaper. There's no mention of Normandy on the front page, and only a brief reference to it in a roundup story on an inside page.

The biggest battle since the invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein's regime is under way in Iraq. It's outcome could determine whether the war is won or lost. But our news media have paid less attention to it than to Paris Hilton's legal troubles.

The heart of the offensive is Operation Arrowhead Ripper, in Diyala province northeast of Baghdad, involving some 8,000 American and 2,000 Iraqi troops.

Many members of al Qaida fled from Baghdad to Diyala, which borders on Iran, when the U.S. troop surge began in January. There are thought to be between 1,000 and 2,000 hard core al Qaida fighters in Diyala, mostly in the provincial capital of Baquba.

'They are ready for us,' said former Special Forces soldier Michael Yon, now a freelance journalist embedded with the U.S. troops. 'Giant bombs are buried in the roads. Snipers have chiseled holes in walls so they can shoot not from roofs or windows, but from deep inside buildings, where we cannot see the flash or hear the shots...Car bombs are already assembled. Suicide vests are prepared.'

It's no coincidence that Arrowhead Ripper began within days of the arrival in Baghdad of the fifth and final brigade of the troop surge.

'The U.S. ability to shift 10,000 coalition soldiers into a major operation outside Baghdad in the midst of a major security crackdown is the mark of significant operational flexibility,' said STRATFOR, a private intelligence service. 'This flexibility will allow the United States to keep pressure on the jihadists and thus impede their ability to plan complex operations.'

Chiefly because of a shortage of troops, American offensives in the past have tended just to push insurgents from one part of Iraq to another. Arrowhead Ripper is different.
'The idea this time is not to chase al Qaida out, but to trap and kill them head on, or in ambushes, or while they sleep,' Mr. Yon said.

'The city is cordoned, neighborhoods are identified as friendly or enemy territory, the neighborhoods are then segmented and forces move in,' wrote Bill Roggio in his invaluable blog, Fourth Rail. 'The combat operations are then immediately followed by humanitarian and reconstruction projects.'

Simultaneous offensives are being conducted in another insurgents' rat's nest, Babil province southwest of Baghdad, and in Baghdad neighborhoods where Coalition soldiers in the past have been reluctant to go.

Simultaneous offensives are the best way to gain decisive victory over a numerically inferior force, because they prevent the enemy from shifting forces from one front to another. The Union did not prevail in our Civil War until Grant attacked in the East at the same time as Sherman attacked in the West.

Our soldiers are being assisted by former insurgents who have turned against al Qaida. Unlike the Anbar Salvation Council on which it is modeled, the Diyala Salvation Front isn't strong enough to take on al Qaida by itself. But the intelligence its members provide could prove invaluable to our troops.

You haven't heard of the Anbar Salvation Council? Maybe that's because our news media have tended to treat good news from Iraq as no news. When Thomas Ricks of the Washington Post reported last September that a senior Marine intelligence officer thought Anbar province had been 'lost politically,' his story attracted enormous attention from his fellow journalists. Google lists 789,000 references to that one story.

The Anbar Salvation Council, a coalition of 41 Sunni tribes under the leadership of Sheik Abdul Sattar al Rishawi, has in very short order reversed that situation (if it were ever as dire as Col. Pete Devlin imagined). Al Qaida has been all but driven out of Iraq's 'Wild West.' But Google lists only 114,000 mentions of the Anbar Salvation Council. (Paris Hilton has nearly 76 million mentions.)

The Anbar Salvation Council model is spreading. The Diyala Salvation Front was formed in May. More than ten tribes in Baghdad and its suburbs have banded together to fight al Qaida, USA Today reported Tuesday.

If Arrowhead Ripper succeeds, al Qaida in Iraq will suffer a blow from which it may not recover. 'In Diyala, both the foreign jihadists and their domestic allies are beginning to feel cornered, with few places left to hide,' STRATFOR said.

But if Arrowhead Ripper succeeds, you may not hear much about it. A U.S. victory would be too embarrassing for those in the media who have staked their reputations on defeat.

I met one of the suppliers of the good feet store. He sells them an arch support for under 15.00 dollars and the good feet store retails them for about 200 dollars. The sales people at the good feet store also try to sell three pair to make a final 500 dollar sale. These arch supports are good but very over priced. 50 dollars would be a very fair price because of store overhead and franchise fees. These are still much better than the flimsy supports at walmart and other department stores.

Okay...let me start by saying this has been a bad PF day. One of those days where I have broke down sobbing thinking this is NEVER going to get any better. I am 3 weeks out from gastroc slide surgery with absolutly no relief with the PF. I am in my thirties and am used to being to so active..well active until last August anyway. This is not the type of life I want to live. I used to run, hike. etc. The only way I make it through my 12 hours shifts as an ED nurse is to tape unitl I can't feel my foot at all anymore. I can't imagine giving up a job I love so much (not to mention that I can't afford to give up my job)

So my question.....how do you get through those dark days. I really do believe in the mind/body connection so I know deep down that this attitude does not help my healing. I used to do yoga for stress....but can't even do that anymore. I know it's a rather personal question to ask what your coping mechisms are....but I'm at a loss here. Do any of you have days like this....or am I the only drama queen LOL

Re: The Walking Company Inserts View Thread

I had the chance to browse one of their franchises up in the DC area not too long ago. What I was most happy to see was the good selection of footwear, particularly of those specializing in making fashionable shoes with orthopedic elements. They are a licensed user of Aetrex's IStep scanner, so that was likely what you saw there. What's nice about IStep (as well as a few other similar machines) is that it can be programmed to assist with items stocked at any particular retailer. Although I don't think of it as a mechanical evaluation tool, it does a fantastic job at assessing true foot size. This is the function for which it's used at the New Balance brand stores.

One thing I will relate is that apparently not all locations carry cork-based inserts. From what I can tell the only brand that is approved franchise-wide are the Aetrex inserts (which are made well, but not the best value in my experience). Some of their stores have C Ped's on staff (some in franchise ownership), so stock variations (especially with inserts) and staff expertise vary widely.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

Larry's on the right track as far as the footcare franchises go. Most Good Feet stores do not have certified professionals on staff. Worse, most have a bare minimum of training, and that only pertains to the to premolded inserts that they sell.

Things are a bit better with Foot Solutions. Any franchise that opened since 2005 must have at least one C Ped on staff. It's not always the franchise owner, but usually is. Their pedorthic training is performed in-house at the Foot Solutions corporate offices in Atlanta, and focuses on the technology housed by their franchise model. Although there are some people with this franchise who do an excellent job, most do not receive extensive training in athletics. I also do not know of one who crafts their custom inserts on-site (they use AmFit machines to on-site scan then central mill them).

Because of these considerations, I believe it's in your better interest to seek someone with greater hands-on knowledge of your activities and potential needs. In addition to the info I left on my previous response, there's also Jamie Dick. He's a dual certificate C Ped and PT, and is outstanding in this particular arena.

Foot Solutions makes custom and Good Feet sells the Alzner premade device for an obscene amount. The question I have is you stated you have "high arches" but "over-pronate" The reason the custom superfeet probably didnt work is that they are vacuum formed while your foot is held non wt bearing. If they used the full cork the arch was probably too high in the device for running.

I am bothered by the number of patients that all say "I'm a pronator" because they were told that by someone or they read a running magazine and decided they were a "pronator" I would try to drive and see Richard or Jeremy but steer clear of Foot Solutions and Good Feet. They are franchises that can be bought into with very little training. With Good Feet most training is chicanery and smoke and mirrors to get someone to pay $225 for something you can find on EBay for $20

Re: Which New Balance shoe? View Thread
Posted by Jeremy L on 1/11/07 at 11:22

Suggesting that New Balance, as a whole, is excellent for PF is a misnomer. In fact, virtually every shoe brand out there has at least one model in their line which lack appropriate qualities for recommendation.

Here's what's really important. First, establish which brands use a last shape which best matches your foot. As an example, New Balance uses more than 10 shapes, as well as a plethera of constructions and widths. Then match the shoe's construction elements with your personal functional needs, as well as what types of activities/surfaces you'll be using.

As you can imagine, it's not as simple as walking into a department store and choosing the shoe from their latest sale flyer. In fact, most shoes listed in sale flyers are typically not indicated for people suffering heel pain. It may cost you 10% or 20% more than at a department store or big box retailer, but do yourself a favor and locate someone close to you who has knowledge and experience fitting shoes for those suffering problems. It will very likely cost you a whole lot less in time and frustration in the meantime. Certified Pedorthists and experienced specialty running shops are good places to start. You can perform searches at:

www.cpeds.org Although not everyone shown on this list may specialize in running shoes, they should all possess knowledge in biomechanics and help you determine a better shoe

www.fleetfeet.com This is the most extensive running specialty franchise in the country. There are a few owners/staffers in this company who are C Peds, but most franchises take particular care in hiring/trainign people to better evaluate footwear needs for their customers

Noat and Keen shoes, The Good Feet Store View Thread
Posted by jean vb on 9/20/06 at 15:37

I certainly do appreciate your knowledge, Jeremy! I would be interested to know why you are so knowledgable... I think you work in the shoe industry in some capacity.. care to share??

I had dealt with PF for over a year and "think" I am getting better.
(Don't say that too loud, it will jinx me!!) I had been wearing NB 843 with rx orthotics, and found that it was not making my feet feel better.
I recently bought a pair of Birks Newalks and after wearing them over tha past days, have felt improvement. I don't think I can make it through an Ohio winter in sandles, however.

My physical therapist mentioned Keen and the girl at my pods office mentioned Noat.. I am not familiar with either, can you give me some info on them? There is not a retailer of either in my area, but I can travel to Columbus to check them out if they seem like they may work.
Do they have the same foot bed as Birks??

Also, I hear ads for "The Good Feet" store, it is a franchise.. has anyone had any experience with them?

I am fairly new to the board and I do enjoy reading the responses.
You all seem like a great group of people, what a shame so many of us have such pain. You don't understand foot pain until you've been there!

Thanks....

Re: Former Iranian president speaks out about binLaden View Thread
Posted by Tim M. on 9/11/06 at 23:06

Dr. Ed,

Interesting that you should use Turkey as an example. In fact, Turkey started retreating from secularism in the 1920s, and it has only been through the political power of the hard line, secular elite that it has remained as secular as it is. Hardly a "model of separation between state and religion."

I chose my words very carefully. I said most "do not see a need for separation between religion and the state," because most of them do not see the hard schism between the requirements of religion and the requirements of government that we Americans see. The Islamic fundamentalists do, of course, as do the Turkish secular elite, but neither of them are in the majority.

In line with this is the quandry President Musharraf of Pakistan faces, which you pointed out quite accurately with one omission. One of the reasons Musharraf faces a rising number of Islamists in his country is because of his admiration for the hard line secular reforms in Turkey! If he toed a more moderate line he would probably not be facing the situation he faces. I agree with you, it is very scary.

Dr. Parker: and what real advice have you provided to this forumn? I recall a lot of bashing of the "laypeople", a lot of bashing of airrosti' and even some bashing of Dr. Z on this site, but I do not recall any real posting of any significant medical advice from you except the standard, ask your own doctor?
===================================================


Thanks for asking, Lisa. I don't "bash" lay people. That implies disagreement, expressed capriciously and without legitimate foundation. People here post questions about their problems, ostensibly to obtain meaningful answers. When I see a question which I believe is inappropriately to ask here or is poorly posed, I believe that it is my professional responsibility to not only so state, but to give my reasoning for that opinion and often suggesting an alternative method of obtaining the desired answer. Very often that is to have the question consult his or her own doctor who is not only the one who should know the details of the questioners situation best but is on the questioner's payroll. I am here mainly for the purpose of education and that often require criticism of inappropriate treatments or attempts to obtain information from those not qualified to give it. My disagreement with the massage folks was predicated on my professional experience and I believe that I backed up my concerns effectively.

With that preface having been said, during the brief time in which I have been here, I have post the following responses which I believe to have been additive and germane to the discussions involving medical issues. As you have expressed opinion otherwise, perhaps you did not look before you spoke

But don't you understand that you should be looking for not just any old information, but information which is reliable tailored to the specifics of your own case. Would you have let a plumber not complete the hooking up of your pipes just because he was in a hurry and maybe behind schedule for the day? Is your body worth less than your plumbing. What I want to impress upon you is that the patient is the consumer and the only reason that the doctor has a practice is because he or she serves patients. Patients need information from the horse's mouth, not information based on what some other patient was told by some other doctor or the single experience that another patient might have experienced. The problem is that patients such as that often fail to realize that their care/results/problems may not have been typical. In the end you are looking for information of which you can reasonably depend, and it is my point that you place yourself in a rather poor position when you attempt to make important decisions on either what a doctor other than yours tells you, or even worse, what a patient who has the hubris to think that one experience makes him or her an expert leads you to believe will apply to you.

I assume that you are speaking of ganglionic cysts. They are typically thinly-walled pouches of jelly-like substance arising from the outer sheath of tendons. They generally feel quite hard to palpation and are often slightly mobile. Pain or lack thereof varies. A variety known as a synovial cyst has similar histology, but arises from the synovium which lines a joint instead of the tendon. Recurrence rates of both are high when they are drained (needle aspirated) or ruptured by by closed technique, but if properly and completely surgically excised and they recur, one would have to look for the underlying cause . . perhaps a bony prominence or spur which also might require removal.

Why not take the money that would be eaten up by your divorce and spend it on a doctor? I can assure you that a divorce attorney will be less likely than a doctor to agree to $5 a month in payment. But I am also willing to bet that there are other things which you possibly deny yourself which would free up more than $5 a month, especially if you chose to think of the expenditure as going toward saving your marriage. At any rate, I find it difficult to believe that anyone who has a computer and and Internet connection has only $60 a year in expendable income. People want good medical care, but often consider paying for it as a waste of whatever funds they might have. You can't have it both ways by claiming that your situation is ruining most ever facet of your life, yet you can't of more accuraely, WON'T revise your spending priorities in order to possibly solve your problem.

Re: Calcaneonavicular Post Surgery View Thread
Posted by R. Parker, DPM on 8/18/06 at 08:50

First of all Shari, this section is for Asking the Doctors, not the Social and Support Section. Asking other patients who THINK they might have had the same or similar problems is not basically harmless like asking if someone had the same problem with his refrigerator and what he did about it. No matter what the questioner later states, he or she is looking for accurate information which will help his problem. That fact is often denied, but why else would anyone post a queston. What others have or have not done and whether what they have or have not done has had any direct effect on their problems cannot be discerned by such lay commentators or comentary. Unfortunately, incorrect information about medical issues often leads to either harmful or non-productive treatments of the delay in the patient receiving a proper diagnosis and treatment. So, basing anything on the unknowledgeable comments of non-doctors, or even doctor who attempt to respond without adequate infromation, is not without much risk. Patients need to be aware that they have to prepare for their visit to a doctor, and that preparation includes getting their story complete and straight and in chronological order, detailing exactly what diagnoses and treatments have been offered by other doctors if such were the case, writing down a list of questions to ask and having the persistence to insist that the doctor explain and explain again if the his/her answers are not completely understood. The main issue is that the experience of other patients is based on generally one incident, and though many tend to think that their one experience makes them some sort of authority on the matter, unless enough such comments can be received to make them statistically significant (and that is impossible) such lay reports are nothing more than anecdotes, which even when placed end to end do not constitute data. If one is looking for real answers to his or her problem instead of simply meaningless social interaction, the experiences of individual patients should be taken with a grain of salt.

Posted by R. Parker, DPM on 8/25/06 at 15:57

I find it quite curious that main, if not the only purpose of the web site which you reference appears to be the selling of business opportunities, ostensibly as franchise outlets for whatever you are pushing. I see no discussion of the basics of whatever technique you are hawking, and medical testimonials are something which only those dim of wit should consider, especially when you offer no entertaing medicine show along with them. Reminds me of the sales techniques of pyramid schemes. Almost no valid medical techniques are held as proprietary, as it is typical of the medical community to share at no fee the rights to administer any new treatment technique which has been developed. Until otherwise proven, I would suggest that you are using this supposedly informational site for blatant advertising and nothing more. Shame, shame, shame.

Re: Airrosti Treatments View Thread

You have offered excuses, equivocations and apologies, yet not word one as to even a hint as to what your proprietary method is, why it is better than what is routinely available or references to any properly administer medical studies to back your claims. I would consider your assertion that you chose only to sell your treatment rights to other doctors because you fear that otherwise they will not administer it properly to be a rather transparent attempt to justify what certainly looks like blatant, unadulterated commercialism. It would appear to me that the only purposes in your posting here are to tweak the curiosity of those patients who may be desperate enough to try even the unknown and to entice those fringe doctors who are always eager to corner a market niche for which your organization through its advertising might afford them additional income . . . at least for a while. I would not be at all surprised if you are not also selling distributorships to such doctors who may give you a nibble.

If you ever come to realize that for the majority of people who post here and on sites like this do so mainly for entertainment purposes you might get some incite as to why many posts provoke arguments. You can't tell me that anyone even with a vexing foot problem comes here day after day, and sometimes many times a day to see what is posted by others and to respond to it. Those who are truly desperate are prime meat for anyone who can present himself well and hold out new hope, probably not unlike the sort that led to the patients desperation. But the treatments under discussion, being offered as both proprietary through only franchised outlets and the blatant attempt to sell those franchises to doctor who then have proprietary rights to offer them should wave a red flag in front of the eyes of those who have gone down similar paths before. So the arguments you disdain in your post are the result of a combination of the desire for many to simply engage in heated intercourse and punditism, and the well-intentioned warnings of ethical practitioners who do not believe that there is any case for the selling of right to offer to patients techniques which are held out as bona fide advances in medical care.

Re: Airrosti Treatments View Thread

Dr.Perry, et al,
All you really could and should have done all along is to give a detailed explanation of your technique and references to bona-fide, respectable, peer-reviewed studies. Without such as that, you are merely spitting in the wind with your explanations and equivocations. Real doctors share their techniques with other doctors. They do not sell them the rights to use them under the transparent guise of making some judgment as to how qualified they are to use them.

Worst of all, by your refusal to openly discuss your technique and to let other professionals evaluate it, you are giving possibly unsubstantiated hope to the ignorant, the gullible and the desperate who are always the major targets of practitioners of suspect ethics and disingenuous intent.

Re: Airrosti Treatments View Thread

By your again-repeated song and dance, it would seem that you have substantiate my suspicions to MY satisfaction. I know of no medical procedure which cannot be detailed in its concept and general procedure, even if that description is not through enough to have the reader then employ it. Indeed you and your buddies HAVE comported with a certain amount of grace and dignity at not shouting back at those you find your presence here suspicious in intent. But that is not to confused with validity of the assumption that whatever it is that you promote is probably snake oil. I would judge that this is not the only venue where you have found less than enthusiastic welcome resulting from your making of rather brash claims, devoid of the slightest intent or ability to support them with substance or even to define your methods. I see no reasons whatsoever why you would feel that a private revelation of your methods and procedures regarding this ill-defined technique which you hold in such high esteem is any more in order than a public one here and now, and I consider your offer of complementary treatment to any patient who posts here an unseemly, gratuitous and unprofessional advertising come-on which you know very well you won't be taken up on.

Finally, you and your group have more than a few times acknowledged the fact that you have gotten less than a favorable reception here by the vast majority that you, indeed, are wasting your time. And yet, in spite of your rhetoric stating that you will now move on, I fear we will not see that happening. Perhaps you need to offer free fries with each treatment. Hitch up your wagon and move on.
==================================================
Re: Airrosti Treatments View Thread
Posted by R. Parker, DPM on 8/31/06 at 21:37

Valid medical treatments can be easily detailed in such a manner so as to be well understood by other doctors. You have not done that in any way shape or form, and if you think you have, then direct me to those posts. What I HAVE seen from you has been non-specific gobble-de-goop about the supposed nature of rather non-specific conditions and analogies relating body tissue such as fascia to Saran Wrap. I can only say that if you believe that this sort of rhetoric represents a bona-fide medically acceptable description of your technique, you have a rather poor understanding of what is expected when one doctor discusses his procedures with another doctor.

This is what I would think would be appropriate in describing your technique.

1. Identify a specific condition or illness which you are treating with the technique and the criteria for its employment.

2. Discuss the objectives of your treatment in MEDICAL terms, not in so-call lay logic which often does not apply in medicine.

3. Give a step by step procedure as to what your procedure entails, discussing what it targets and how your technique address that target.

4. Indicate the normally required treatment intervals and the anticipated number of treatments required.

5. Discuss your success/failure rates and any untoward effect which you have encounter in using the technique.

In the absence of the above, in my view, you have been offering us only unsupported hype.

Wouldn't the appropriate time to "get more familiar with his surgery" have been prior to the surgery rather than afterward? There is endless information available on the Internet which include diagrams and pictures regarding this condition and various treatments, including surgery. But for the best source of information concerning the exact treatment he has had and what might be reasonably expected postoperatively would be the doctor under who's care he has placed himself.

Instead of wasting what might be precious time by searching the Internet for guesses, see an appropriate specialist to evaluate your condition. If you had a complete rupture, you would certainly know it, but if you caused a partial tear, a prompt diagnosis and treatment might prevent further tearing or complete rupture. So, see an appropriate specialist at once and use crutches to avoid weight-bearing until then to diminish the possible additional damage. It is far better to spend the money to find out that you don't have a potentially serious problem than not to spend the money and find out that you do.

When I asked "where" it was done, I didn't mean the city or state, but the part of the body, as you gave no indication in your post. But now that I know that it was a Morton's neuroma, there is absolutely no physiologic basis for pain relating to a neuroma to exist proximal to the level of the neuroma, other than for there possibly but unlikely may be muscle or joint problems secondary to an abnormal (antalgic) gait occasioned by the pain of the neuroma. But after any especially extremity surgery, pain in the calf may indicate a deep venous thrombosis which MUST be check out IMMEDIATELY, as the consequences of such a condition throwing an embolus can be severe . . such as death. Stop attempting to obtain information about this on the Internet and advise your surgeon of this immediately. He/she will likely call you in for an examination at once.

If you think that you had a tarsal tunnel release for a Baxter's Nerve Entrapment, either you are mistaken about the diagnosis or the procedure, or, if neither is the case, it would seem that perhaps your doctor simply didn't know what was appropriate to be done.

Moreover, the term "ablation," which generally means removal of tissue, is a poor choice of terminology for a tarsal tunnel release, as binding tissues are generally released in such a procedure, but not removed.

Re: Doctor View Thread
Posted by R. Parker, DPM on 9/05/06 at 16:43


There is much talk here about whether someone who uses the term Dr. before his name or uses the initial of his degree thereafter needs in some why prove that he or she is what that person claims to be and to identify him or herself specifically. Though I know of no sane reason why a person might claim to be a doctor if he or she is not, one would have to assume that such a deranged person would find it no more difficult to assume the name of an actual doctor than to make up one which does not exist. But the reality of the situation is that there are many reasons why a licensed doctor would not wish his or her identity know in a forum where free advice is offered, but only a couple of reasons why he or she would wish to disclose his or her name. Certainly one might be ego driven to the point where he or she might want some sort of public recognition for comments offered, or one might use a site such as this for promotional purposes in hopes of obtaining patients either in his or her own area or even from afar based on the impression given here. But those doctors who come here for neither purpose are generally better off if they remain anonymous. It is curious in a forum where so many patient relate that they are either under treatment by another doctor, or have been, and yet apply here for information regarding their illnesses or condition . . information which they should be seeking from their own doctor, that they would demand identification of those who offer their expertise gratis, ostensible so that they might vet the responder. But it is entirely obvious by their seeking of information here rather than from their own doctor, that they have either inadequately or not at all vetting their own doctor(s) to whom they are paying fees.

But in the end, patients are rather poor vetters of doctors, as they often confuse affability and congeniality, which they can easily assess, as more important than skill and knowledge, which they are not well-quality to judge. Look only to the recent posts of doctors who came to this site with tales of a new and highly effective treatment which they were either unable or unwilling to describe, but, for a fee, would license other doctor to perform. And because they were rather polite in their posts, there were many here who championed the prospects of a treatment which they knew nothing about, chomping at the bit for a go at it. Your best protection here as to who is a real doctor and who is not are the very few real doctors who post here. You saw the reaction that the majority of doctors had to the folks to which I just referred, and they seem to now be gone to perhaps other more fertile grounds. Most doctors can sniff out who is real and who is not.

But anyone who takes direct action on anything that is learned from those here, either doctors or lay person, who are strangers to them, whether or not they might know their name, and who have not examined them and who know only what they have generally inadequately told them are total fools. Information gotten in forums such as this is for general informational purpose only, and often may not apply to the questioner. At the very best, it may supply the questioner with additional information which might be useful to take to their own doctors.

Indeed you and your buddies HAVE comported with a certain amount of grace and dignity at not shouting back at those you find your presence here suspicious in intent. But that is not to confused with validity of the assumption that whatever it is that you promote is probably snake oil. I would judge that this is not the only venue where you have found less than enthusiastic welcome resulting from your making of rather brash claims, devoid of the slightest intent or ability to support them with substance or even to define your methods. I see no reasons whatsoever why you would feel that a private revelation of your methods and procedures regarding this ill-defined technique which you hold in such high esteem is any more in order than a public one here and now, and I consider your offer of complementary treatment to any patient who posts here an unseemly, gratuitous and unprofessional advertising come-on which you know very well you won't be taken up on.

Finally, you and your group have more than a few times acknowledged the fact that you have gotten less than a favorable reception here by the vast majority that you, indeed, are wasting your time. And yet, in spite of your rhetoric stating that you will now move on, I fear we will not see that happening. Perhaps you need to offer free fries with each treatment. Hitch up your wagon and move on.

Valid medical treatments can be easily detailed in such a manner so as to be well understood by other doctors. You have not done that in any way shape or form, and if you think you have, then direct me to those posts. What I HAVE seen from you has been non-specific gobble-de-goop about the supposed nature of rather non-specific conditions and analogies relating body tissue such as fascia to Saran Wrap. I can only say that if you believe that this sort of rhetoric represents a bona-fide medically acceptable description of your technique, you have a rather poor understanding of what is expected when one doctor discusses his procedures with another doctor.

This is what I would think would be appropriate in describing your technique.

1. Identify a specific condition or illness which you are treating with the technique and the criteria for its employment.

2. Discuss the objectives of your treatment in MEDICAL terms, not in so-call lay logic which often does not apply in medicine.

3. Give a step by step procedure as to what your procedure entails, discussing what it targets and how your technique address that target.

4. Indicate the normally required treatment intervals and the anticipated number of treatments required.

5. Discuss your success/failure rates and any untoward effect which you have encounter in using the technique.

In the absence of the above, in my view, you have been offering us only unsupported hype.

Wouldn't the appropriate time to "get more familiar with his surgery" have been prior to the surgery rather than afterward? There is endless information available on the Internet which include diagrams and pictures regarding this condition and various treatments, including surgery. But for the best source of information concerning the exact treatment he has had and what might be reasonably expected postoperatively would be the doctor under who's care he has placed himself.

Instead of wasting what might be precious time by searching the Internet for guesses, see an appropriate specialist to evaluate your condition. If you had a complete rupture, you would certainly know it, but if you caused a partial tear, a prompt diagnosis and treatment might prevent further tearing or complete rupture. So, see an appropriate specialist at once and use crutches to avoid weight-bearing until then to diminish the possible additional damage. It is far better to spend the money to find out that you don't have a potentially serious problem than not to spend the money and find out that you do.

When I asked "where" it was done, I didn't mean the city or state, but the part of the body, as you gave no indication in your post. But now that I know that it was a Morton's neuroma, there is absolutely no physiologic basis for pain relating to a neuroma to exist proximal to the level of the neuroma, other than for there possibly but unlikely may be muscle or joint problems secondary to an abnormal (antalgic) gait occasioned by the pain of the neuroma. But after any especially extremity surgery, pain in the calf may indicate a deep venous thrombosis which MUST be check out IMMEDIATELY, as the consequences of such a condition throwing an embolus can be severe . . such as death. Stop attempting to obtain information about this on the Internet and advise your surgeon of this immediately. He/she will likely call you in for an examination at once.

If you think that you had a tarsal tunnel release for a Baxter's Nerve Entrapment, either you are mistaken about the diagnosis or the procedure, or, if neither is the case, it would seem that perhaps your doctor simply didn't know what was appropriate to be done.

Moreover, the term "ablation," which generally means removal of tissue, is a poor choice of terminology for a tarsal tunnel release, as binding tissues are generally released in such a procedure, but not removed.

There is much talk here about whether someone who uses the term Dr. before his name or uses the initial of his degree thereafter needs in some why prove that he or she is what that person claims to be and to identify him or herself specifically. Though I know of no sane reason why a person might claim to be a doctor if he or she is not, one would have to assume that such a deranged person would find it no more difficult to assume the name of an actual doctor than to make up one which does not exist. But the reality of the situation is that there are many reasons why a licensed doctor would not wish his or her identity know in a forum where free advice is offered, but only a couple of reasons why he or she would wish to disclose his or her name. Certainly one might be ego driven to the point where he or she might want some sort of public recognition for comments offered, or one might use a site such as this for promotional purposes in hopes of obtaining patients either in his or her own area or even from afar based on the impression given here. But those doctors who come here for neither purpose are generally better off if they remain anonymous. It is curious in a forum where so many patient relate that they are either under treatment by another doctor, or have been, and yet apply here for information regarding their illnesses or condition . . information which they should be seeking from their own doctor, that they would demand identification of those who offer their expertise gratis, ostensible so that they might vet the responder. But it is entirely obvious by their seeking of information here rather than from their own doctor, that they have either inadequately or not at all vetting their own doctor(s) to whom they are paying fees.

But in the end, patients are rather poor vetters of doctors, as they often confuse affability and congeniality, which they can easily assess, as more important than skill and knowledge, which they are not well-quality to judge. Look only to the recent posts of doctors who came to this site with tales of a new and highly effective treatment which they were either unable or unwilling to describe, but, for a fee, would license other doctor to perform. And because they were rather polite in their posts, there were many here who championed the prospects of a treatment which they knew nothing about, chomping at the bit for a go at it. Your best protection here as to who is a real doctor and who is not are the very few real doctors who post here. You saw the reaction that the majority of doctors had to the folks to which I just referred, and they seem to now be gone to perhaps other more fertile grounds. Most doctors can sniff out who is real and who is not.

But anyone who takes direct action on anything that is learned from those here, either doctors or lay person, who are strangers to them, whether or not they might know their name, and who have not examined them and who know only what they have generally inadequately told them are total fools. Information gotten in forums such as this is for general informational purpose only, and often may not apply to the questioner. At the very best, it may supply the questioner with additional information which might be useful to take to their own doctors.

Thanks for asking, Lisa. I don't "bash" lay people. That implies disagreement, expressed capriciously and without legitimate foundation. People here post questions about their problems, ostensibly to obtain meaningful answers. When I see a question which I believe is inappropriately to ask here or is poorly posed, I believe that it is my professional responsibility to not only so state, but to give my reasoning for that opinion and often suggesting an alternative method of obtaining the desired answer. Very often that is to have the question consult his or her own doctor who is not only the one who should know the details of the questioners situation best but is on the questioner's payroll. I am here mainly for the purpose of education and that often require criticism of inappropriate treatments or attempts to obtain information from those not qualified to give it.

But don't you understand that you should be looking for not just any old information, but information which is reliable tailored to the specifics of your own case. Would you have let a plumber not complete the hooking up of your pipes just because he was in a hurry and maybe behind schedule for the day? Is your body worth less than your plumbing. What I want to impress upon you is that the patient is the consumer and the only reason that the doctor has a practice is because he or she serves patients. Patients need information from the horse's mouth, not information based on what some other patient was told by some other doctor or the single experience that another patient might have experienced. The problem is that patients such as that often fail to realize that their care/results/problems may not have been typical. In the end you are looking for information of which you can reasonably depend, and it is my point that you place yourself in a rather poor position when you attempt to make important decisions on either what a doctor other than yours tells you, or even worse, what a patient who has the hubris to think that one experience makes him or her an expert leads you to believe will apply to you.

I assume that you are speaking of ganglionic cysts. They are typically thinly-walled pouches of jelly-like substance arising from the outer sheath of tendons. They generally feel quite hard to palpation and are often slightly mobile. Pain or lack thereof varies. A variety known as a synovial cyst has similar histology, but arises from the synovium which lines a joint instead of the tendon. Recurrence rates of both are high when they are drained (needle aspirated) or ruptured by by closed technique, but if properly and completely surgically excised and they recur, one would have to look for the underlying cause . . perhaps a bony prominence or spur which also might require removal.

Why not take the money that would be eaten up by your divorce and spend it on a doctor? I can assure you that a divorce attorney will be less likely than a doctor to agree to $5 a month in payment. But I am also willing to bet that there are other things which you possibly deny yourself which would free up more than $5 a month, especially if you chose to think of the expenditure as going toward saving your marriage. At any rate, I find it difficult to believe that anyone who has a computer and and Internet connection has only $60 a year in expendable income.

Re: Calcaneonavicular Post Surgery View Thread
Posted by R. Parker, DPM on 8/18/06 at 08:50

First of all Shari, this section is for Asking the Doctors, not the Social and Support Section. Asking other patients who THINK they might have had the same or similar problems is not basically harmless like asking if someone had the same problem with his refrigerator and what he did about it. No matter what the questioner later states, he or she is looking for accurate information which will help his problem. That fact is often denied, but why else would anyone post a queston. What others have or have not done and whether what they have or have not done has had any direct effect on their problems cannot be discerned by such lay commentators or comentary. Unfortunately, incorrect information about medical issues often leads to either harmful or non-productive treatments of the delay in the patient receiving a proper diagnosis and treatment. So, basing anything on the unknowledgeable comments of non-doctors, or even doctor who attempt to respond without adequate infromation, is not without much risk. Patients need to be aware that they have to prepare for their visit to a doctor, and that preparation includes getting their story complete and straight and in chronological order, detailing exactly what diagnoses and treatments have been offered by other doctors if such were the case, writing down a list of questions to ask and having the persistence to insist that the doctor explain and explain again if the his/her answers are not completely understood. The main issue is that the experience of other patients is based on generally one incident, and though many tend to think that their one experience makes them some sort of authority on the matter, unless enough such comments can be received to make them statistically significant (and that is impossible) such lay reports are nothing more than anecdotes, which even when placed end to end do not constitute data. If one is looking for real answers to his or her problem instead of simply meaningless social interaction, the experiences of individual patients should be taken with a grain of salt.

I find it quite curious that main, if not the only purpose of the web site which you reference appears to be the selling of business opportunities, ostensibly as franchise outlets for whatever you are pushing. I see no discussion of the basics of whatever technique you are hawking, and medical testimonials are something which only those dim of wit should consider, especially when you offer no entertaing medicine show along with them. Reminds me of the sales techniques of pyramid schemes. Almost no valid medical techniques are held as proprietary, as it is typical of the medical community to share at no fee the rights to administer any new treatment technique which has been developed. Until otherwise proven, I would suggest that you are using this supposedly informational site for blatant advertising and nothing more. Shame, shame, shame.

You have offered excuses, equivocations and apologies, yet not word one as to even a hint as to what your proprietary method is, why it is better than what is routinely available or references to any properly administer medical studies to back your claims. I would consider your assertion that you chose only to sell your treatment rights to other doctors because you fear that otherwise they will not administer it properly to be a rather transparent attempt to justify what certainly looks like blatant, unadulterated commercialism. It would appear to me that the only purposes in your posting here are to tweak the curiosity of those patients who may be desperate enough to try even the unknown and to entice those fringe doctors who are always eager to corner a market niche for which your organization through its advertising might afford them additional income . . . at least for a while.

You can't tell me that anyone even with a vexing foot problem comes here day after day, and sometimes many times a day to see what is posted by others and to respond to it. Those who are truly desperate are prime meat for anyone who can present himself well and hold out new hope, probably not unlike the sort that led to the patients desperation. But the treatments under discussion, being offered as both proprietary through only franchised outlets and the blatant attempt to sell those franchises to doctor who then have proprietary rights to offer them should wave a red flag in front of the eyes of those who have gone down similar paths before. So the arguments you disdain in your post are the result of a combination of the desire for many to simply engage in heated intercourse and punditism, and the well-intentioned warnings of ethical practitioners who do not believe that there is any case for the selling of right to offer to patients techniques which are held out as bona fide advances in medical care.

Without such as that, you are merely spitting in the wind with your explanations and equivocations. Real doctors share their techniques with other doctors. They do not sell them the rights to use them under the transparent guise of making some judgment as to how qualified they are to use them.

First of all Shari, this section is for Asking the Doctors, not the Social and Support Section. Asking other patients who THINK they might have had the same or similar problems is not basically harmless like asking if someone had the same problem with his refrigerator and what he did about it. No matter what the questioner later states, he or she is looking for accurate information which will help his problem. That fact is often denied, but why else would anyone post a queston. What others have or have not done and whether what they have or have not done has had any direct effect on their problems cannot be discerned by such lay commentators or comentary. Unfortunately, incorrect information about medical issues often leads to either harmful or non-productive treatments of the delay in the patient receiving a proper diagnosis and treatment. So, basing anything on the unknowledgeable comments of non-doctors, or even doctor who attempt to respond without adequate infromation, is not without much risk. Patients need to be aware that they have to prepare for their visit to a doctor, and that preparation includes getting their story complete and straight and in chronological order, detailing exactly what diagnoses and treatments have been offered by other doctors if such were the case, writing down a list of questions to ask and having the persistence to insist that the doctor explain and explain again if the his/her answers are not completely understood. The main issue is that the experience of other patients is based on generally one incident, and though many tend to think that their one experience makes them some sort of authority on the matter, unless enough such comments can be received to make them statistically significant (and that is impossible) such lay reports are nothing more than anecdotes, which even when placed end to end do not constitute data. If one is looking for real answers to his or her problem instead of simply meaningless social interaction, the experiences of individual patients should be taken with a grain of salt.

I find it quite curious that main, if not the only purpose of the web site which you reference appears to be the selling of business opportunities, ostensibly as franchise outlets for whatever you are pushing. I see no discussion of the basics of whatever technique you are hawking, and medical testimonials are something which only those dim of wit should consider, especially when you offer no entertaing medicine show along with them. Reminds me of the sales techniques of pyramid schemes. Almost no valid medical techniques are held as proprietary, as it is typical of the medical community to share at no fee the rights to administer any new treatment technique which has been developed. Until otherwise proven, I would suggest that you are using this supposedly informational site for blatant advertising and nothing more. Shame, shame, shame.

You have offered excuses, equivocations and apologies, yet not word one as to even a hint as to what your proprietary method is, why it is better than what is routinely available or references to any properly administer medical studies to back your claims. I would consider your assertion that you chose only to sell your treatment rights to other doctors because you fear that otherwise they will not administer it properly to be a rather transparent attempt to justify what certainly looks like blatant, unadulterated commercialism. It would appear to me that the only purposes in your posting here are to tweak the curiosity of those patients who may be desperate enough to try even the unknown and to entice those fringe doctors who are always eager to corner a market niche for which your organization through its advertising might afford them additional income . . . at least for a while. I would not be at all surprised if you are not also selling distributorships to such doctors who may give you a nibble.

But the treatments under discussion, being offered as both proprietary through only franchised outlets and the blatant attempt to sell those franchises to doctor who then have proprietary rights to offer them should wave a red flag in front of the eyes of those who have gone down similar paths before. So the arguments you disdain in your post are the result of a combination of the desire for many to simply engage in heated intercourse and punditism, and the well-intentioned warnings of ethical practitioners who do not believe that there is any case for the selling of right to offer to patients techniques which are held out as bona fide advances in medical care.

Dr.Perry, et al,
All you really could and should have done all along is to give a detailed explanation of your technique and references to bona-fide, respectable, peer-reviewed studies. Without such as that, you are merely spitting in the wind with your explanations and equivocations. Real doctors share their techniques with other doctors. They do not sell them the rights to use them under the transparent guise of making some judgment as to how qualified they are to use them.

Worst of all, by your refusal to openly discuss your technique and to let other professionals evaluate it, you are giving possibly unsubstantiated hope to the ignorant, the gullible and the desperate who are always the major targets of practitioners of suspect ethics and disingenuous intent.

By your again-repeated song and dance, it would seem that you have substantiate my suspicions to MY satisfaction. I know of no medical procedure which cannot be detailed in its concept and general procedure, even if that description is not through enough to have the reader then employ it. Indeed you and your buddies HAVE comported with a certain amount of grace and dignity at not shouting back at those you find your presence here suspicious in intent. But that is not to confused with validity of the assumption that whatever it is that you promote is probably snake oil. I would judge that this is not the only venue where you have found less than enthusiastic welcome resulting from your making of rather brash claims, devoid of the slightest intent or ability to support them with substance or even to define your methods. I see no reasons whatsoever why you would feel that a private revelation of your methods and procedures regarding this ill-defined technique which you hold in such high esteem is any more in order than a public one here and now, and I consider your offer of complementary treatment to any patient who posts here an unseemly, gratuitous and unprofessional advertising come-on which you know very well you won't be taken up on.

Finally, you and your group have more than a few times acknowledged the fact that you have gotten less than a favorable reception here by the vast majority that you, indeed, are wasting your time. And yet, in spite of your rhetoric stating that you will now move on, I fear we will not see that happening. Perhaps you need to offer free fries with each treatment. Hitch up your wagon and move on.

Valid medical treatments can be easily detailed in such a manner so as to be well understood by other doctors. You have not done that in any way shape or form, and if you think you have, then direct me to those posts. What I HAVE seen from you has been non-specific gobble-de-goop about the supposed nature of rather non-specific conditions and analogies relating body tissue such as fascia to Saran Wrap. I can only say that if you believe that this sort of rhetoric represents a bona-fide medically acceptable description of your technique, you have a rather poor understanding of what is expected when one doctor discusses his procedures with another doctor.

This is what I would think would be appropriate in describing your technique.

1. Identify a specific condition or illness which you are treating with the technique and the criteria for its employment.

2. Discuss the objectives of your treatment in MEDICAL terms, not in so-call lay logic which often does not apply in medicine.

3. Give a step by step procedure as to what your procedure entails, discussing what it targets and how your technique address that target.

4. Indicate the normally required treatment intervals and the anticipated number of treatments required.

5. Discuss your success/failure rates and any untoward effect which you have encounter in using the technique.

In the absence of the above, in my view, you have been offering us only unsupported hype.

There is endless information available on the Internet which include diagrams and pictures regarding this condition and various treatments, including surgery.

Instead of wasting what might be precious time by searching the Internet for guesses, see an appropriate specialist to evaluate your condition. If you had a complete rupture, you would certainly know it, but if you caused a partial tear, a prompt diagnosis and treatment might prevent further tearing or complete rupture. So, see an appropriate specialist at once and use crutches to avoid weight-bearing until then to diminish the possible additional damage. It is far better to spend the money to find out that you don't have a potentially serious problem than not to spend the money and find out that you do.

When I asked "where" it was done, I didn't mean the city or state, but the part of the body, as you gave no indication in your post. But now that I know that it was a Morton's neuroma, there is absolutely no physiologic basis for pain relating to a neuroma to exist proximal to the level of the neuroma, other than for there possibly but unlikely may be muscle or joint problems secondary to an abnormal (antalgic) gait occasioned by the pain of the neuroma. But after any especially extremity surgery, pain in the calf may indicate a deep venous thrombosis which MUST be check out IMMEDIATELY, as the consequences of such a condition throwing an embolus can be severe . . such as death.

If you think that you had a tarsal tunnel release for a Baxter's Nerve Entrapment, either you are mistaken about the diagnosis or the procedure, or, if neither is the case, it would seem that perhaps your doctor simply didn't know what was appropriate to be done.

Moreover, the term "ablation," which generally means removal of tissue, is a poor choice of terminology for a tarsal tunnel release, as binding tissues are generally released in such a procedure, but not removed.

Re: Doctor View Thread

There is much talk here about whether someone who uses the term Dr. before his name or uses the initial of his degree thereafter needs in some why prove that he or she is what that person claims to be and to identify him or herself specifically. Though I know of no sane reason why a person might claim to be a doctor if he or she is not, one would have to assume that such a deranged person would find it no more difficult to assume the name of an actual doctor than to make up one which does not exist. But the reality of the situation is that there are many reasons why a licensed doctor would not wish his or her identity know in a forum where free advice is offered, but only a couple of reasons why he or she would wish to disclose his or her name. Certainly one might be ego driven to the point where he or she might want some sort of public recognition for comments offered, or one might use a site such as this for promotional purposes in hopes of obtaining patients either in his or her own area or even from afar based on the impression given here. But those doctors who come here for neither purpose are generally better off if they remain anonymous. It is curious in a forum where so many patient relate that they are either under treatment by another doctor, or have been, and yet apply here for information regarding their illnesses or condition . . information which they should be seeking from their own doctor, that they would demand identification of those who offer their expertise gratis, ostensible so that they might vet the responder. But it is entirely obvious by their seeking of information here rather than from their own doctor, that they have either inadequately or not at all vetting their own doctor(s) to whom they are paying fees.

But in the end, patients are rather poor vetters of doctors, as they often confuse affability and congeniality, which they can easily assess, as more important than skill and knowledge, which they are not well-quality to judge. Look only to the recent posts of doctors who came to this site with tales of a new and highly effective treatment which they were either unable or unwilling to describe, but, for a fee, would license other doctor to perform. And because they were rather polite in their posts, there were many here who championed the prospects of a treatment which they knew nothing about, chomping at the bit for a go at it. Your best protection here as to who is a real doctor and who is not are the very few real doctors who post here. You saw the reaction that the majority of doctors had to the folks to which I just referred, and they seem to now be gone to perhaps other more fertile grounds. Most doctors can sniff out who is real and who is not.

But anyone who takes direct action on anything that is learned from those here, either doctors or lay person, who are strangers to them, whether or not they might know their name, and who have not examined them and who know only what they have generally inadequately told them are total fools. Information gotten in forums such as this is for general informational purpose only, and often may not apply to the questioner. At the very best, it may supply the questioner with additional information which might be useful to take to their own doctors.

As I stated very succinctly, my main issue is not with the fact that you present a technique for which you claim significantly improved result where traditional treatments have either failed or not been sufficient, but that you have, in my view, promoted this as a business opportunity for those doctors willing to purchase the details of your procedure and a proprietary treatment source for the acquiring of patients.

You characterize my lack of acceptance of your claims in contrast to the development of advances in medicine over the last half-century. But, other than for pharmaceuticals and certain high-tech equipment, these developments were not SOLD to practitioners.

You have stated that, " [You] have proposed a very simplistic theoretical statement in support of treatment claims . . .." I say that stating a THEORY (particularly one which I think would be terribly difficult to both justify and confirm on an in-vivo basis) in support of the physiologic basis of a treatment for which, without independent supporting studies, you make grandiose claims and to which you are SELLING the right of utilization, would require for me a cogent statement from you as to why this does not smack of snake oil. You chastise me for having an opinion without "making any attempt to verify [your] claims." But without free access to your technique, how could anyone other than those without a prejudicial financial agenda evaluate such claims?

Furthermore, since you seem not to challenge that "massage therapists also utilize this theoretical model," it seem to me curious that you have a technique which you can or should restrict for use by only practitioners who pay for the right.

You have termed my opinion "flawed" on several occasions, but I have yet to see any substantiation of it beyond your statement to that effect. No one has accused you, as it appears you infer, of extortion . . simply propriety and comportment with the generally accepted premise that medical developments have not and should not be held as proprietary and for sale to the providers of service. Should medicine have followed your business model, we would presently be in sorry shape.

I cannot think of any reason why you would have posted here, but for advertising purpose of both drawing perhaps desperate patients to your facility and to offer for sale the franchise right to practitioners who may then benefit likewise. Forums such as this, in my view, are not proper venues for such advertising, and I think that if you wish to sell your wares rather than offer advice with consideration for remuneration, which is ostensibly the purpose here, that you move on to a venue where that is appropriate, even if it means your paying for it.

How easily the gullible are snowed, Dr. Z . . . or is it just that you need someone else around who might display proprietary financial agendas in promotion of a fringe-type treatment.

But since you think that the explanation given was so cogent and insightful, how 'bout YOUR input in regard to the physiologic underpinnings of this technique, and especially the supposed thixotropic basis of this treatment.

Secondly, I would just LOVE to hear your comments regarding the propriety of SELLING the FRANCHISE right to a procedure for which the purveyor admitedly can provide no peer review and no medically accepted studies.

To assume that those who, in spite of their grandiose claims, cannot provide such data, and, in spite of their lip-service to the need for independent analysis, while, at the same time restricting only those who pay for the "privilege" of using it to make such judgments, are "LEADERS," would seem to say more about you than you intended to divulge. Perhaps, it would be more clarifying if you would indicate in what you consider them to be leaders.

REAL leaders in medicine not only freely share their techniques with professional colleagues, but encourage others to duplicate their results . . . and without a licensing fee. Just suppose, as just one example, that transplant techniques were held as proprietary, and doctors had to pay for the right to employ them. What you suggest as leadership sounds more akin to practice management to me.

There are chains that have a very limited selection of product brands (in a local vein, Foot EFX is one of those), sometimes as few as one or two brands represented. In the case of Foot Solutions, they possess a very broad approved product base. There's enough variety that there will be brands stocked at one location, not to be found at another. Franchise owners also have certain flexibility to work with other brands which they feel warrant exposure, but may not yet have the FS corporate stamp.

I do have one note of interest in regards to Foot Solutions. I am very happy to see that Dr Margiano requires all locations to have at least one staff pedorthist. Like all practicing pedorthic centers, there are varying degrees of experience and expertise among them. One difference is that most Foot Solutions professionals perform their coursework at FS corporate, where the curricula centers around the techniques preferred by the franchiser. An example is that all are well-trained in the operation of the Amfit digital casting machine; however, few have knowledge or experience in other casting methods. This limitation is still a minor concern, considering that their training still exceeds most chain retail settings. Closer to me, I also have strong faith in the skills and product variety offered by Ritchie Shoes.

Good question, Judy. All facilities which teach at least one method of orthotic casting; most teach more than one. A lot of it depends upon how many hours are required for that particular treatment, as well as how many hours are dedicated for the entire course structure. I can't talk with full knowledge of podiatry; however, every podiatrist of whom I have met either knows neutral suspension or uses it virtually every day.

Pedorthics I can speak on first-hand. There are (I believe) eight facilities teaching precertification courses in my field. The one at Foot Solutions only teaches how to use the Amfit machine, because all their franchises are equipped with that device. Northwestern, Temple, and the Palmer Institute all teach at least neutral suspension. I am not aware specifically what the other locations demonstrate to their students.

When I took my courses, I chose to attend Palmer because the owner/key presenters were the founders of one of the most respected orthotics labs in the country (Allied OSI). Although I had used foam impressions and direct molds in the past, I was also introduced to neutral suspension and weighted plaster casting. In addition to all these techniques from time to time I also use wax, both in neutral and semi-weighted, and visco gel. The latter I usually use from an already complete plaster mold, also I assume it could be effective from semi-weighted direct casting.

So you see, there's not any one single practiced or presented method. All have their benefits and challenges, and it's up to a good practitioner who has knowledge and experience with several casting techniques to utilize the one that will provide the best possible outcome for the patient. Just today I did neutral suspensions both in plaster and fiberglass and two semi-weighted foam impressions. To say why I chose a particular method for each of those patients would get way too winded and technical, but it's my sincerest hopes that my experience with their conditions will provide similarly good results as I have with others in the past.

Hope that helps explain at least a little bit.

Re: Interesting shoe recommendation View Thread
Posted by Tim M on 1/23/06 at 12:08

Dr. Wander,

I have tried on a pair of Crocs, but I have not worn them for an extended length of time. My birthday is coming up, so maybe I can talk my wife into a pair.

Z-Coils are another story for me. I am a big fan of them. I started wearing them almost 2 1/2 years ago when I had a severe PF flareup which was not responding well to a new pair of prescription orthotics. I had actually broken one of my old, 20 year old othotics, and I rolled and injured my ankle as a result of running around favoring my worst foot. A month after wearing a pair of Z-Coils steadily the only other thing I was using was an ankle brace for my injured ankle. About two months later I put the ankle brace in a drawer and I haven't had to use it since. I'm back to hiking and light bacpacking without pain.

I agree, totally, with your comments about cost and availability. Z-Coils are not cheap and the only time I recommend them to my friends is when they are at the point of considering surgery. I feel everyone who purchases their first pair of Z-Coils should do it at a store where they can be fitted properly by someone who who has been trained. I've been told that there are around 32 types of adjustments which can be made to the shoe, the fellow who sells me mine knows my foot and makes two adjustments right off the bat before I even try on a new pair.

Until there are more Z-Coil stores around (there are none in the NY tri-state area, for instance), people are faced with the prospect of travelling some distance to find a store. Since you may have to return to the store one or two times to have further adjustments, if the store is many miles away you may face even more expense. I understand that the newer Z-Coil franchises are prohibited from selling the shoe on-line.

First let me say that ART caused me more pain for the first few wks or so(I really don't remember exactly how long). It didn't start to help until at least 6 to 8 wks into treatment. I was going for ART treatments for about 2 1/2 yrs when I added Graston. I now go for each one once a wk. There is always some pain during treatment. In my experience, the treatments that don't hurt, don't usually help (but maybe I'm just a masochist LOL).

I don't think that's elvis I think this poster is part of a cabal of wierd folks on the internet who enjoy being slightly destructive. No real harm done right? And it speaks to the anarchist in their weird little souls.

The question is are they tempting fate? It's not only about thumbing your nose at Scott's authority. In the end it's about mocking peoples pain. People come here with a level of pain I don't think the poster understands. They come here in need. When you romp around on the website you waste everyones time, including your own. There are much healthier and socially beneficial things to do with your time.

Sincerely why don't you find those things? They will make you feel much better than breaking through Scott's security on heelspurs.com. They really will, so go help an old person or feed a puppy. Your antics serve no one and they will get you nothing except a cheap thrill.

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.

Some Past History View Thread
Posted by John H on 9/06/05 at 10:22

Back in the 70's the Corps of Engineers wanted to plug the only opening in Lake Ponchatrain that opens to the ocean. This was to prevent a storm surge from entering the Lake and causing an overflow of the levees and or failure of the dykes. Environmentalist and sports fisherman fought this tooth and nail and the government could never get it done. Many engineers think this is still the thing to do but still expect the environmentalist and sports fisherman to fight it regardless of what has happened. You can be assured it will be part of the investigation and you can be sure the same people will oppose it. It has been brought up by the Corps of Engineers with every administration and Congress since the early 70's. Environmentalist thought the money could have been better used elsewhere. Environmentalist do a lot of good but they also impede progress in many cases.

Just watching a guy in NOLA being interviewed down in the murky water in front of his house. Said he will not leave. Lots of infighting going on in the area between some of Representatives in NOLA, the Mayor, the Police Chief, and Commander of the LA National Guard. Many are now saying the plan to use the Superdome as a shelter was ill thought out. Finger pointing going on all over the place. However, good Americans and the Military are moving fast and furious and I continue to be amazed that after only a week we have almost cleared the city and people are being relocated to safety with food and healthcare. There will be homes for these people. It want and could not happen in one week or one month no matter what plan you have. But it is up and running. Think about it; large ocean going cruise ships are being used for homes, military bases, a call for thousands of mobile homes to be set up, I have seen people giving their rent homes for free to refugees for as long as they want, people and the military in mass are moving in to clean up. One of the greatest mass cleanups in history is well underway after only one week. We cannot bring back the dead but as Winston Churchill said in 1940 when things looked terrible for Britain "This may be our finest hour".

I think Chuchills entire speech is worth a read as I see events and lessons in it comparable to the tragedy before us. It is long but worth looking back. You do not know where you are going if you do not understand where you have been:


At 5:30 a.m. on May 10, 1940, Germany began a massive attack against Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. Defending those countries were the British Expeditionary Force (B.E.F.) along with the French, Belgian, and Dutch armies.


The Germans had 136 divisions while the Allies had 149. The Allies had more tanks, however the Germans had more combat planes. Although the opposing armies seemed evenly matched, there was a crucial difference in command structures and battle tactics. The Germans had an aggressive battle plan and utilized modern communications such as radio. German tank generals including Heinz Guderian and Erwin Rommel commanded from the front lines, improvising when necessary, and urging their troops onward. Morale was very high.


The Allies assumed a defensive, World War I style battle plan centered around the Maginot Line, a string of defensive forts along the French-German border, south of the Ardennes forest, stretching from Luxembourg to Switzerland.


Allied generals were usually nowhere near the front and even relied on hand-delivered messages. The high speed mechanized German 'blitzkrieg' continually caught the Allied armies off-guard. In many cases, Allied generals ordered troops to defend areas which had already been overtaken by the Germans.


The Maginot Line was simply bypassed by German Panzer tanks which attacked through the 'impassable' Ardennes forest. The Germans then circled north and surrounded the Allied armies in Belgium. The 'Miracle at Dunkirk' occurred next as 338,000 British and French soldiers were picked up from the coastline by over a thousand vessels, including Royal Navy destroyers and a flotilla of smaller boats of every shape and size.


After just a few weeks of battle, Hitler's armies had experienced stunning victories on all fronts. Holland, Luxembourg and Belgium had capitulated by the end of May. Paris fell on June 14. Three days later, France sued for peace.


In this speech to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Winston Churchill discusses the disastrous turn of events in Europe with the realization that Britain now stands alone against the seemingly unstoppable German military juggernaut.




I spoke the other day of the colossal military disaster which occurred when the French High Command failed to withdraw the northern Armies from Belgium at the moment when they knew that the French front was decisively broken at Sedan and on the Meuse. This delay entailed the loss of fifteen or sixteen French divisions and threw out of action for the critical period the whole of the British Expeditionary Force. Our Army and 120,000 French troops were indeed rescued by the British Navy from Dunkirk but only with the loss of their cannon, vehicles and modern equipment. This loss inevitably took some weeks to repair, and in the first two of those weeks the battle in France has been lost. When we consider the heroic resistance made by the French Army against heavy odds in this battle, the enormous losses inflicted upon the enemy and the evident exhaustion of the enemy, it may well be the thought that these 25 divisions of the best-trained and best-equipped troops might have turned the scale. However, General Weygand had to fight without them. Only three British divisions or their equivalent were able to stand in the line with their French comrades. They have suffered severely, but they have fought well. We sent every man we could to France as fast as we could re-equip and transport their formations.


I am not reciting these facts for the purpose of recrimination. That I judge to be utterly futile and even harmful. We cannot afford it. I recite them in order to explain why it was we did not have, as we could have had, between twelve and fourteen British divisions fighting in the line in this great battle instead of only three. Now I put all this aside. I put it on the shelf, from which the historians, when they have time, will select their documents to tell their stories. We have to think of the future and not of the past. This also applies in a small way to our own affairs at home. There are many who would hold an inquest in the House of Commons on the conduct of the Governments--and of Parliaments, for they are in it, too--during the years which led up to this catastrophe. They seek to indict those who were responsible for the guidance of our affairs. This also would be a foolish and pernicious process. There are too many in it. Let each man search his conscience and search his speeches. I frequently search mine.


Of this I am quite sure, that if we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find that we have lost the future. Therefore, I cannot accept the drawing of any distinctions between members of the present Government. It was formed at a moment of crisis in order to unite all the Parties and all sections of opinion. It has received the almost unanimous support of both Houses of Parliament. Its members are going to stand together, and, subject to the authority of the House of Commons, we are going to govern the country and fight the war. It is absolutely necessary at a time like this that every Minister who tries each day to do his duty shall be respected; and their subordinates must know that their chiefs are not threatened men, men who are here today and gone tomorrow, but that their directions must be punctually and faithfully obeyed. Without this concentrated power we cannot face what lies before us. I should not think it would be very advantageous for the House to prolong this debate this afternoon under conditions of public stress. Many facts are not clear that will be clear in a short time. We are to have a secret session on Thursday, and I should think that would be a better opportunity for the many earnest expressions of opinion which members will desire to make and for the House to discuss vital matters without having everything read the next morning by our dangerous foes.


The disastrous military events which have happened during the past fortnight have not come to me with any sense of surprise. Indeed, I indicated a fortnight ago as clearly as I could to the House that the worst possibilities were open; and I made it perfectly clear then that whatever happened in France would make no difference to the resolve of Britain and the British Empire to fight on, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.


During the last few days we have successfully brought off the great majority of the troops we had on the line of communication in France; and seven-eighths of the troops we have sent to France since the beginning of the war--that is to say, about 350,000 out of 400,000 men--are safely back in this country. Others are still fighting with the French, and fighting with considerable success in their local encounters against the enemy. We have also brought back a great mass of stores, rifles and munitions of all kinds which had been accumulated in France during the last nine months.


We have, therefore, in this Island today a very large and powerful military force. This force comprises all our best-trained and our finest troops, including scores of thousands of those who have already measured their quality against the Germans and found themselves at no disadvantage. We have under arms at the present time in this Island over a million and a quarter men. Behind these we have the Local Defense Volunteers, numbering half a million, only a portion of whom, however, are yet armed with rifles or other firearms. We have incorporated into our Defense Forces every man for whom we have a weapon. We expect very large additions to our weapons in the near future, and in preparation for this we intend forthwith to call up, drill and train further large numbers. Those who are not called up, or else are employed during the vast business of munitions production in all its branches--and their ramifications are innumerable--will serve their country best by remaining at their ordinary work until they receive their summons. We have also over here Dominions armies. The Canadians had actually landed in France, but have now been safely withdrawn, much disappointed, but in perfect order, with all their artillery and equipment. And these very high-class forces from the Dominions will now take part in the defense of the Mother Country.


Lest the account which I have given of these large forces should raise the question: Why did they not take part in the great battle in France? I must make it clear that, apart from the divisions training and organizing at home, only twelve divisions were equipped to fight upon a scale which justified their being sent abroad. And this was fully up to the number which the French had been led to expect would be available in France at the ninth month of the war. The rest of our forces at home have a fighting value for home defense which will, of course, steadily increase every week that passes. Thus, the invasion of Great Britain would at this time require the transportation across the sea of hostile armies on a very large scale, and after they had been so transported they would have to be continually maintained with all the masses of munitions and supplies which are required for continuous battle--as continuous battle it will surely be.


Here is where we come to the Navy--and after all, we have a Navy. Some people seem to forget that we have a Navy. We must remind them. For the last thirty years I have been concerned in discussions about the possibilities of oversea invasion, and I took the responsibility on behalf of the Admiralty, at the beginning of the last war, of allowing all regular troops to be sent out of the country. That was a very serious step to take, because our Territorials had only just been called up and were quite untrained. Therefore, this Island was for several months particularly denuded of fighting troops. The Admiralty had confidence at that time in their ability to prevent a mass invasion even though at that time the Germans had a magnificent battle fleet in the proportion of 10 to 16, even though they were capable of fighting a general engagement every day and any day, whereas now they have only a couple of heavy ships worth speaking of--the Scharnhorst and the Gneisenau. We are also told that the Italian Navy is to come out and gain sea superiority in these waters. If they seriously intend it, I shall only say that we shall be delighted to offer Signor Mussolini a free and safeguarded passage through the Strait of Gibraltar in order that he may play the part to which he aspires. There is a general curiosity in the British Fleet to find out whether the Italians are up to the level they were at in the last war or whether they have fallen off at all.


Therefore, it seems to me that as far as sea-borne invasion on a great scale is concerned, we are far more capable of meeting it today than we were at many periods in the last war and during the early months of this war, before our other troops were trained, and while the B.E.F. had proceeded abroad. Now, the Navy have never pretended to be able to prevent raids by bodies of 5,000 or 10,000 men flung suddenly across and thrown ashore at several points on the coast some dark night or foggy morning. The efficacy of sea power, especially under modern conditions, depends upon the invading force being of large size; It has to be of large size, in view of our military strength, to be of any use. If it is of large size, then the Navy have something they can find and meet and, as it were, bite on. Now, we must remember that even five divisions, however lightly equipped, would require 200 to 250 ships, and with modern air reconnaissance and photography it would not be easy to collect such an armada, marshal it, and conduct it across the sea without any powerful naval forces to escort it; and there would be very great possibilities, to put it mildly, that this armada would be intercepted long before it reached the coast, and all the men drowned in the sea or, at the worst blown to pieces with their equipment while they were trying to land. We also have a great system of minefields, recently strongly reinforced, through which we alone know the channels. If the enemy tries to sweep passages through these minefields, it will be the task of the Navy to destroy the mine-sweepers and any other forces employed to protect them. There should be no difficulty in this, owing to our great superiority at sea.


Those are the regular, well-tested, well-proved arguments on which we have relied during many years in peace and war. But the question is whether there are any new methods by which those solid assurances can be circumvented. Odd as it may seem, some attention has been given to this by the Admiralty, whose prime duty and responsibility is to destroy any large sea-borne expedition before it reaches, or at the moment when it reaches, these shores. It would not be a good thing for me to go into details of this. It might suggest ideas to other people which they have not thought of, and they would not be likely to give us any of their ideas in exchange. All I will say is that untiring vigilance and mind-searching must be devoted to the subject, because the enemy is crafty and cunning and full of novel treacheries and stratagems. The House may be assured that the utmost ingenuity is being displayed and imagination is being evoked from large numbers of competent officers, well-trained in tactics and thoroughly up to date, to measure and counterwork novel possibilities. Untiring vigilance and untiring searching of the mind is being, and must be, devoted to the subject, because, remember, the enemy is crafty and there is no dirty trick he will not do.


Some people will ask why, then, was it that the British Navy was not able to prevent the movement of a large army from Germany into Norway across the Skagerrak? But the conditions in the Channel and in the North Sea are in no way like those which prevail in the Skagerrak. In the Skagerrak, because of the distance, we could give no air support to our surface ships, and consequently, lying as we did close to the enemy's main air power, we were compelled to use only our submarines. We could not enforce the decisive blockade or interruption which is possible from surface vessels. Our submarines took a heavy toll but could not, by themselves, prevent the invasion of Norway. In the Channel and in the North Sea, on the other hand, our superior naval surface forces, aided by our submarines, will operate with close and effective air assistance.


This brings me, naturally, to the great question of invasion from the air, and of the impending struggle between the British and German Air Forces. It seems quite clear that no invasion on a scale beyond the capacity of our land forces to crush speedily is likely to take place from the air until our Air Force has been definitely overpowered. In the meantime, there may be raids by parachute troops and attempted descents of airborne soldiers. We should be able to give those gentry a warm reception both in the air and on the ground, if they reach it in any condition to continue the dispute. But the great question is: Can we break Hitler's air weapon? Now, of course, it is a very great pity that we have not got an Air Force at least equal to that of the most powerful enemy within striking distance of these shores. But we have a very powerful Air Force which has proved itself far superior in quality, both in men and in many types of machine, to what we have met so far in the numerous and fierce air battles which have been fought with the Germans. In France, where we were at a considerable disadvantage and lost many machines on the ground when they were standing round the aerodromes, we were accustomed to inflict in the air losses of as much as two and two-and-a-half to one. In the fighting over Dunkirk, which was a sort of no-man's-land, we undoubtedly beat the German Air Force, and gained the mastery of the local air, inflicting here a loss of three or four to one day after day. Anyone who looks at the photographs which were published a week or so ago of the re-embarkation, showing the masses of troops assembled on the beach and forming an ideal target for hours at a time, must realize that this re-embarkation would not have been possible unless the enemy had resigned all hope of recovering air superiority at that time and at that place.


In the defense of this Island the advantages to the defenders will be much greater than they were in the fighting around Dunkirk. We hope to improve on the rate of three or four to one which was realized at Dunkirk; and in addition all our injured machines and their crews which get down safely--and, surprisingly, a very great many injured machines and men do get down safely in modern air fighting--all of these will fall, in an attack upon these Islands, on friendly soil and live to fight another day; whereas all the injured enemy machines and their complements will be total losses as far as the war is concerned.


During the great battle in France, we gave very powerful and continuous aid to the French Army, both by fighters and bombers; but in spite of every kind of pressure we never would allow the entire metropolitan fighter strength of the Air Force to be consumed. This decision was painful, but it was also right, because the fortunes of the battle in France could not have been decisively affected even if we had thrown in our entire fighter force. That battle was lost by the unfortunate strategical opening, by the extraordinary and unforseen power of the armored columns, and by the great preponderance of the German Army in numbers. Our fighter Air Force might easily have been exhausted as a mere accident in that great struggle, and then we should have found ourselves at the present time in a very serious plight. But as it is, I am happy to inform the House that our fighter strength is stronger at the present time relatively to the Germans, who have suffered terrible losses, than it has ever been; and consequently we believe ourselves possessed of the capacity to continue the war in the air under better conditions than we have ever experienced before. I look forward confidently to the exploits of our fighter pilots--these splendid men, this brilliant youth--who will have the glory of saving their native land, their island home, and all they love, from the most deadly of all attacks.


There remains, of course, the danger of bombing attacks, which will certainly be made very soon upon us by the bomber forces of the enemy. It is true that the German bomber force is superior in numbers to ours; but we have a very large bomber force also, which we shall use to strike at military targets in Germany without intermission. I do not at all underrate the severity of the ordeal which lies before us; but I believe our countrymen will show themselves capable of standing up to it, like the brave men of Barcelona, and will be able to stand up to it, and carry on in spite of it, at least as well as any other people in the world. Much will depend upon this; every man and every woman will have the chance to show the finest qualities of their race, and render the highest service to their cause. For all of us, at this time, whatever our sphere, our station, our occupation or our duties, it will be a help to remember the famous lines:


He nothing common did or mean, Upon that memorable scene.


I have thought it right upon this occasion to give the House and the country some indication of the solid, practical grounds upon which we base our inflexible resolve to continue the war. There are a good many people who say, 'Never mind. Win or lose, sink or swim, better die than submit to tyranny--and such a tyranny.' And I do not dissociate myself from them. But I can assure them that our professional advisers of the three Services unitedly advise that we should carry on the war, and that there are good and reasonable hopes of final victory. We have fully informed and consulted all the self-governing Dominions, these great communities far beyond the oceans who have been built up on our laws and on our civilization, and who are absolutely free to choose their course, but are absolutely devoted to the ancient Motherland, and who feel themselves inspired by the same emotions which lead me to stake our all upon duty and honor. We have fully consulted them, and I have received from their Prime Ministers, Mr. Mackenzie King of Canada, Mr. Menzies of Australia, Mr. Fraser of New Zealand, and General Smuts of South Africa--that wonderful man, with his immense profound mind, and his eye watching from a distance the whole panorama of European affairs--I have received from all these eminent men, who all have Governments behind them elected on wide franchises, who are all there because they represent the will of their people, messages couched in the most moving terms in which they endorse our decision to fight on, and declare themselves ready to share our fortunes and to persevere to the end. That is what we are going to do.


We may now ask ourselves: In what way has our position worsened since the beginning of the war? It has worsened by the fact that the Germans have conquered a large part of the coast line of Western Europe, and many small countries have been overrun by them. This aggravates the possibilities of air attack and adds to our naval preoccupations. It in no way diminishes, but on the contrary definitely increases, the power of our long-distance blockade. Similarly, the entrance of Italy into the war increases the power of our long-distance blockade. We have stopped the worst leak by that. We do not know whether military resistance will come to an end in France or not, but should it do so, then of course the Germans will be able to concentrate their forces, both military and industrial, upon us. But for the reasons I have given to the House these will not be found so easy to apply. If invasion has become more imminent, as no doubt it has, we, being relieved from the task of maintaining a large army in France, have far larger and more efficient forces to meet it.


If Hitler can bring under his despotic control the industries of the countries he has conquered, this will add greatly to his already vast armament output. On the other hand, this will not happen immediately, and we are now assured of immense, continuous and increasing support in supplies and munitions of all kinds from the United States; and especially of aeroplanes and pilots from the Dominions and across the oceans coming from regions which are beyond the reach of enemy bombers.


I do not see how any of these factors can operate to our detriment on balance before the winter comes; and the winter will impose a strain upon the Nazi regime, with almost all Europe writhing and starving under its cruel heel, which, for all their ruthlessness, will run them very hard. We must not forget that from the moment when we declared war on the 3rd September it was always possible for Germany to turn all her Air Force upon this country, together with any other devices of invasion she might conceive, and that France could have done little or nothing to prevent her doing so. We have, therefore, lived under this danger, in principle and in a slightly modified form, during all these months. In the meanwhile, however, we have enormously improved our methods of defense, and we have learned what we had no right to assume at the beginning, namely, that the individual aircraft and the individual British pilot have a sure and definite superiority. Therefore, in casting up this dread balance sheet and contemplating our dangers with a disillusioned eye, I see great reason for intense vigilance and exertion, but none whatever for panic or despair.


During the first four years of the last war the Allies experienced nothing but disaster and disappointment. That was our constant fear: one blow after another, terrible losses, frightful dangers. Everything miscarried. And yet at the end of those four years the morale of the Allies was higher than that of the Germans, who had moved from one aggressive triumph to another, and who stood everywhere triumphant invaders of the lands into which they had broken. During that war we repeatedly asked ourselves the question: 'How are we going to win?' And no one was able ever to answer it with much precision, until at the end, quite suddenly, quite unexpectedly, our terrible foe collapsed before us, and we were so glutted with victory that in our folly we threw it away.


We do not yet know what will happen in France or whether the French resistance will be prolonged, both in France and in the French Empire overseas. The French Government will be throwing away great opportunities and casting adrift their future if they do not continue the war in accordance with their treaty obligations, from which we have not felt able to release them. The House will have read the historic declaration in which, at the desire of many Frenchmen--and of our own hearts--we have proclaimed our willingness at the darkest hour in French history to conclude a union of common citizenship in this struggle. However matters may go in France or with the French Government, or other French Governments, we in this Island and in the British Empire will never lose our sense of comradeship with the French people. If we are now called upon to endure what they have been suffering, we shall emulate their courage, and if final victory rewards our toils they shall share the gains, aye, and freedom shall be restored to all. We abate nothing of our just demands; not one jot or tittle do we recede. Czechs, Poles, Norwegians, Dutch, Belgians have joined their causes to our own. All these shall be restored.


What General Weygand called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.


Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this Island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.


Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.' (RealAudio :22)

Re: Chronic PF/AS, considering orthotics [again] View Thread
Posted by Richard, C.Ped on 8/05/05 at 10:09

We have seen so many patients with painful arthritis and we pretty much make the same orthosis for each. We use a three layer cushion along with a 40 durometer posting for support. You want the excellent cushion, but you have to have the support as well. If you would like, use the link that will help you find a pedorthist in your area. I would suggest looking for someone in an individual practice rather than a franchise store.

I am relatively familiar with Foot Solutions. they are the largest franchisor of pedorthic type shoe stores in the US. But there is no guarentee of the level of experience between the stores. You may get someone with years of expererience or someone who has taken a 3-week course. Your best bet is probably to find a store in your area that has been around for years.

And no I dont have orthotics I wish I did specially when I have to shop .Wal- Mart is a night mare for me. Maybe the next time I go to Little Rock You can meet me and my husband for lunch.But I think the next time I go will be for the surgery.

Hi Ralph
Yes I did keep all the records MRI'S bone scans But there is nothing I can do.We did try to do something about him but the problem was proving causaution Never even knew there was such a word.I dont even have the luxury of knowing if there was an infection because of the iv meds. The Drs in Dallas said Being on that strong of a Med for so long would mask any thing.
This evil Dr.At first tried to make me belive that I had cancer in my foot instead of telling me that he had somehow injured my foot.
Ask Dr Z are the normal tools for this surgery a hammer and chisel? Maybe they are. I do not know.I was awake so I saw what he used.
What I went through was a nightmare.
I soon found out that I was not the only person that he has maimed
I had to have the second surgery to try to repair some of the damage done by him.
Dr.Z asked what was done all I know is that he reopened the foot and he drilled into the heel bone and had tried to smooth some of the damage to the bone.that was in Feb of 02.
I have been out of my mind in pain every since.
So that is why I am so anxious to try this surgery at this point in my life I will do anything to stop the pain

There are many GFS employees that are going through the c.ped school. That bad thing is, they are still doing what they do. No custom devices. There are many franchise places like this that have people getting certified, but still have no idea what they are doing. That is one of the many HUGE reasons I think we (the good C.Peds) should be licenced. The problem is you cannot really regulate how someone can make an orthosis.

Re: Any Football Predictions?? View Thread

Dorothy it sounds like you have a good handle on sports history to me. The Cardinals are the oldest NFL franchise in existence. Over 100 years old now. It has been in the Bidwill family since the 30's. When Bill Bidwill Sr died which was probably in the early 60's his wife took over operations of the franchise. She died not many years later and his son Bill Bidwill Jr. has owned and operated it since. They also have a daughter who is VP of something. As owners go in the NFL they derrive most of their money from the franchise so they have always been slow to spend any money on FA's and quality players. Their business practices with players has been out of touch . Consequentially we have always had a lousy team. They left St Louis because of a conflict with the baseball Cardinals as when the Cardinals would get into post season play the football Cards could not play their regular schedule games at Bush stadium. They then foolishly went to AZ with no guarantee of a new stadium and had to play their games at Sun Devil stadium where temps can reach 130 degrees on the field and the fans burn up in the stadium on Sunday afternoon. Thus they have the lowest attendance in the NFL by far. They averaged 38,000 last year. Compare that to the Redskins who averaged over 90,000 and have an owner who is a zillionaire and is willing to spend it just like George Steinbrenner. Phoenix finally passed a bond issue to fund a new domed stadium and it will be open in 2006. It will be state of the art and a super bowl is already scheduled there. We still have this long histroy as a loser which is hard to overcome. Unfortunately i stick with my teams lose or win so I continue to ride it out.

I was put into a pair of NB991's by the C-Peds I go to. They're a lightweight mesh and leather combination, in women's sizes, yet really provide the support through the shank which I need for my TTS. My orthotics fit into them beautifully, no need to trim them down to fit. Do a search for Foot Solutions and see if there is a store in your area. This is a franchise and I've discovered they are all over the US, mainly run by C-Peds who can really help you into the right shoe(s).

Curves is a franchise operation here in the states that has people go from station to station and do small amounts of different types of exercises for a period of time. At least, that's what I gathered from the eleven o'clock news when they ran a feature on it. It's called circuit training, I believe.

Lots of people have jumped on the bandwagon but I don't know any who have stuck with it.

"LIFE'S TOO SHORT TO BE SMALL !!"


The main objective of all the Professional Bodybuilding Organizations is to make a profit. How is this done you ask? Easy. The unobtainable goal. The unobtainable goal is a goal that will never be reached and in this case it's massive freaky size. Oh you can make great gains in muscle mass but you will never be Dorian Yates. This is how it works. First you must know that the profit motivated Professional Bodybuilding Organizations run all the major contests (AKA Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia), own all major bodybuilding publications, has a hand in the monstrous market of supplements, and all the top bodybuilders are contracted (anotherwards they are paid). The bodybuilders are juiced, they use more steroids and more pharmaceuticals than most small hospitals. So, the amateur bodybuilder watches the contests, buys all the magazines, follows all the workouts, spends a small fortune on supplements, and still makes only modest gains. The unassuming bodybuilder thinks something's wrong but believe me there's not. You CAN get big just not freaky like Dorian Yates or Ronnie Coleman. That way Professional Bodybuilding has everyone chasing the unobtainable goal as the Franchise sits on a big pile of cold hard cash.


First time bodybuilding’s world met anabolic steroids in the 1960s (called by some the ‘Dianabol decade’), make anyone, not just those who gifted with good genetic only, could become muscular and cut if they took enough steroids. Those who lacked the natural inclination to muscularity and the personal resolve to use steroids to increase their muscularity fell by the wayside. Those who used steroids were rewarded with major bodybuilding titles and the fame and fortune that went with them. That’s the true fact for today’s bodybuilding world. Those who choose not to use steroids won’t be able to win the overall major bodybuilding titles, and only able to find themselves at winning ‘Most Muscular’ or ‘Best Bodypart’ or ‘Natural Competition’ awards. Let’s face the fact that today, bodybuilding went in a new direction to freakiness, especially when true genetic freak such as Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared on the scene. Today, physique was more regarded by the media than strength. Physique (bodybuilders) got more media coverage than strength (weightlifters).


Today, win at any cost became the battle cry of bodybuilders the world over. “It matters not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game,” became a quaint out-of-time phrase. Being a good loser was no longer fashionable, and playing fairly by the “gentleman’s code of conduct” was passe. Show me a good loser and I’ll show you a loser !!


Today, unlike 1960s, a myriad of new steroids had become readily available – growth hormone, clenbuterol, thyroid, to name a few – that enabled virtually anyone to become ripped. Why do people automatically assume that taking steroids puts someone at risk? Why do they think steroids were invented in the first place? It was to help sick people, especially those suffering from starvation and anemia, wasting diseases such as Crohn's and Colitis, and burn and accident victims. Steroids are great healers of injuries and they help people to recover from surgery and the trauma of accidents. AIDS victims are living greatly enhanced lifestyles, and are being made healthier. As usual, the bodybuilders are far ahead of their time. Bodybuilders have been - and always will be - pioneers in the use of supplements and drugs.






Sustanon is a very popular steroid which is highly appreciated by its users since it offers several advantages when compared to other testosterone compounds. This special feature has two positive characteristics for the athlete. Sustanon is a mix of four kinds of testosterone, synergistic mix of propionate, phenylpropionate, isocaproate, and decanoate.

First, based on the special combination effect of the compounds, Sustanon, milligram for milligram, has a better effect than Testosterone enanthate, cypionate, and propionate alone.

Second, the effect of the four testosterones is time-released so that Sustanon goes rapidly into the system and remains effective in the body for several weeks. Due to the propionate also included in the steroid, Sustanon is effective after one day and, based on the mixed in decanoates, remains active for 3-4 weeks. In plain English this means a mix of 2 short-acting, 1 medium-acting, and long lasting testosterone, in one shot that equals 250 mg of testosterone.

This is good because it is both fast-acting and long-lasting in the system. You get the fast action of testosterone propionate, and the long lasting effects of enanthate. The blend seems to be recognized by the steroid receptors for longer periods of time than other testosterones. Sustanon hits harder than enanthate or cypionate. At least you get several anabolic "peaks" as each testosterone kicks in for its duration.

Sustanon has a distinct androgenic effect which is coupled with a strong anabolic effect. Therefore it is well suited to build up strength and mass. A rapid increase in body strength and an even increase in body weight occur. Athletes who use Sustanon report a solid muscle growth since it results in less water retention and also aromatizes less than either testosterone enanthate or cypionate. Indeed many bodybuilders who use testosterone and fight against distinct water retention and an elevated estrogen level prefer Sustanon over other long-acting de-pot testosterones.

Many users claim fewer side effects when using Sustanon - less gyno, bloating and endocrine disturbances. It is little less stressful to the liver. In other words, the general feeling is that Sustanon is less toxic than other testosterones, especially suspension. This makes it a favorite of many bodybuilders and power athletes.

It is further noticed that Sustanon is also effective when relatively low doses are given to well advanced athletes- It is interesting to note that when Sustanon is given to athletes who have already used this compound in the same or lower doses, it leads to similar good results as during the previous intake. Sustanon is usually injected at least once a week, which can be stretched up to 10 days.

The dosage in bodybuilding and powerlifting ranges from 250 mg every 14 days up to 1000 mg or more per day. Since such high dosages are not recommended-and fortunately are also not taken in most cases-the rule is 250-1000 mg/week. A dosage of 500 mg/week is completely sufficient for most, and can often be reduced to 250-mg/ week by combining Sustanon with an oral steroid.

Sustanon is well tolerated as a steroid during treatment which stimulates the regeneration, gives the athlete a sufficient "kick" for intense training units, and next to the already mentioned advantage-rapid strength increase and solid muscle gain distinguishes itself also by its compatibility.

My foot surgery of 7/21 - retrocalcaneal spur and achilles repair View Thread
Posted by Alexandra H. on 9/15/04 at 11:49

Let me say, before I start, that in college (in the early 90's) I was an avid exerciser (some would say that I was compulsive). I ran, weightlifted, swam and played volleyball and basketball. During my last years as a student, I would feel some pain in the foot. It started gradually, and eventually led me to cut down on a lot of my exercising.

Fast forward to years later. The pain worsened. I had been to countless podiatrists. I had countless orthotics ($$$$), cortisone injections, physical therapy sessions, RICE marathons, massages galore, but to no avail. Some doctors would say it was PF... some would say it was the biomechanics of my foot.

Then, in 2002 I moved to New York City, where you walk everywhere, where there are plenty of stairs to go to/fro the subway stations. And the pain worsened. So, I went to a podiatrist who took a look at the x-ray and simply identified a tooth-like spur growing at the back of my heel where the Achilles tendon attaches. He also noticed calcification around the tendon.

I was told that the achilles tendon would have to be removed from the heel bone. The spur was chiseled out. The heel bone was reshaped. The tendon was repaired and reattached using a screw. I was put in a splint for the first week. Then in a solid non-weightbearing cast for the next 7 weeks.

I was given crutches (that's the extent of what my insurance paid for), but I rented a wheelchair. I must say that I don't know what I would have done without the wheelchair.

Once the cast was finally taken off, my foot immediately began to swell. The swelling, strangely enough, is concentrated on the top of the foot (minus the toes) and the ankles. The surgery site is in perfect shape. The tendon does not hurt. The swelling was supposed to lessen, but it continues to this day, almost 3 weeks after the cast has been off. I have had a vascular ultrasound (doppler) to check for DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and x-rays to check for stress fractures, but nothing has been found.

I have been going to physical therapy twice a week, since the cast has been off. So far, massage is the only thing that lessens the swelling (but only for a short time). I am able to walk and go up/down the stairs using the crutches, but I tire easily.

There is no doubt in my mind that I would do this surgery all over again if I had to.

Re: surgical release of plantar fascia -- NEVER! View Thread
Posted by Ferreri on 9/07/04 at 00:13

This is very interesting discovery. My podiatrist perfoms this kind of surgery routinely. He believes that by making a small lateral cutting of the fascia releases the tension. He also removes the spur (by grinding it off or by chiseling maybe). This is what he had suggested before I opted to have a go at ESWT which to me is another questionable therapy but less harmful compared to this crazy act of butchery.

I am now wondering if hard custom-made orthotics that he asked me to wear are really necessary in the treatment of plantar fasciitis.

Thank you Doctor.

No offense taken at all, (I am not a franchise owner) I earned my certification Through and through the way I felt was right. I am a very strong advocate on more training for these "retail foot care center's" becuase it is sad to say, some just don't get enough.
It is important for those folks using these stores to be cautious about the advice you take from their sales associates.

You Couldn't have said it better. I have been with the Foot Solutions Franchise for a year and a half now, and i was VERY dissapointed to find that I learned more in one smeseter @ Oklahoma State Uv. in their clinical Pedorthic associate's program than what they teach at the Foot Solutions Pedorthic Training Center for new owner's and employees to start a store,
But then again i know a fair amount of people within the Franchise that are very dedicated to the Pedorthic Profession more so than selling a pair of shoes and inserts and calling it a day!

MORAL OF THE STORY FOR ANYONE READING THIS:
A Certified Pedorthist is only as good as the Educational & Clinical Expierence he/she has. (I'm sure that goes for most Medical Professions

It truly is. It is multifaceted with numerous variables which can be difficult to reproduce experimentally. Those who take a "hard core," give me the scientific proof first approach will only be practicing at the "margins" of the art since so much is truly unproven. The entire "jist" of Buchbinder's article is a critique of the lack of evidence behind a lot of the PF treatments. Much of what we do is based on an understanding of physics, physiology and the combined experiences of thousands of practitioners treating millions of patients in the aggregate. It would be a wonderful world if the clinicians dictated exactly what they wanted studied.

If you don't study something, you can offer limited proof and the impetus to study or not can be political. How long has the schism between chiropractic and allopathic medicine existed without anyone launching studies to validate or invalidate the claims of chiropractic. One would think that with millions of people visiting chiropractors each year, there would be some impetus to study those modalities or subjecting them to scientific method. Why has that not been done? My answer -- politics!

As always .. "caveat emptor" -- let the buyer beware. More that ever, one must ask for the credentials of the individual performing a service.

Licensing of professionals has always been a bit peculiar because despite national standards, it is done on a state level with widely varying results. For example, do you know that in the State of Oregon, chiropractors are allowed to perform deliveries? In the State of Washington, "denturists" can set up shop independent of dentists. The area of hearing aids is really wild because while audiologists (my wife is one) are truly the experts in that area, "hearing aid dispensers" could buy a franchise such as Miracle Ear or Beltone and sell hearing aids. We know a lady who was a beautician on a friday and selling hearing aids on a Monday.

I think the Foot EFX bought out the Good Feet Franchise. I have done some digging and found out that there are some C.Peds that work at these places. That is why I am starting to tell people that just because someone is a C.Ped does not mean they are good.

Richard:
The thing to watch out for is that the orthotics don't place too much pressure on the porta pedis since that is a presumed location of a number of TTS cases, AKA, distal tarsal tunnel. The Goodfeet people are hard to believe but sometimes, it has been the professionals that left the "door open" for such individuals. I can identity with this dilemna as a podiatrist but also as the husband of an audiologist -- anyone, in most states could buy a franchise, Miracle Ear or Beltone, hand a shingle up and start fitting hearing aids -- that is gradually (very gradually) changing.

As it looks right now, I just sit here and play on the computer looking at message boards...haha.

Well, I go around and speak with physicians about the foot care of their paitents. I tell them that we are board certified in what we do and our knowledge of biomechanics, anatomy and physiology (I have additional education in anatomy and physiology) of the foot seperates us from the franchise stores such as Good Feet. When I am finished speaking with them, they know they can trust us to provide the best possible device for each individual.

No two feet are alike. I judge the material per each individual. I do have some doctors that like to use only one or two types of material, and are specific in their prescriptions. Mostly, the prescriptions are kind of vague with only the diagnosis and the directions, "orthosis to fit".
One type of orthosis does not work for everyone. We examine them to see if they need a heel lift, wedges, or any other modifications. All that must be taken into consideration before making the orthsis.

We have many doctors that trust us. We do communicate with them by sending progress notes to their office to let them know what we did. Wether they read it or not, I don't know.

We have a special casting procedure. We do not use the foam boxes any more. We invented a much better way. We do the semi weight bearing casting method...not standing. Standing does not work. Yeah...I said it. Standing does not work.

I file insurance for the patients. I know what South Carolina insurance covers and what does not. I give discounts to those who I know are not covered or do not have insurance. I also let them split up the charges in a couple of payments if needed. I'm such a nice guy!! haha

I also try to have the orthosis ready from same day to at least the next day for the patient. Someone in pain does not want to wait three weeks for their orthosis.

I guess thats about it.

Nomar Garciaparra View Thread

Nomar Garciaparra, the excellent shortshop for the Boston Red Sox, has missed three of the last four games. He recently came back into the lineup and "felt something" during his second at-bat. They did an MRI and he is now wearing a portable cast due to an "achilles tendon problem with his heel."

Sounds like PF to me. It will be interesting to see if they ever use the PF word to describe it. It seems to be something they shy away from saying when they talk about professional athletes. It will be a huge blow to the Sox if he's hurt this season.

Recently I read an article about Veejay Sing, a golfer who had suffered from PF. I was sorting through my husband's huge pile of Golf Magazines so that I could nicely point out that most of them were from 2003 and he probably didn't need them when I saw the article and stopped to read it. While the article said that Veejay has the most amazing practice schedule of anyone on the tour, they never once mentioned the PF. I was disappointed because I thought maybe they'd say whether he had overcome it and if he had, how he'd done it.

If the Red Sox are like any of the other professional franchises, they probably will never inform us of what's wrong with Nomar.

This discussion of donuts is interesting, Dorothy. One of my favorite dietary splurges is a honey dip coffee roll from Dunkin'Donuts. I heat it in the microwave, put on a little margarine (only Smart Balance in my house, as if with all the fat in this roll it would matter) and have it with a cup of my own instant decaf coffee, the only kind I like. Ah, that is pure heaven! I allow myself this for lunch about once a month but haven't had any since Christmas because I gained five pounds and have lost only three of it. I have vowed no splurges until the other two are gone!

You mention hot donuts from WalMart. And I've read that Krispy Kreme is known for hot donuts. Here in New England, I don't think anyone serves hot donuts. Maybe some of the local small bakeries but they are becoming obsolete as chains keep coming in. Although I'm not big on donuts, if Krispy Kreme ever opens around here, I'm sure I'll try one, just to experience the taste. If they make honey dip coffee rolls, I won't even try one because I just can't tempt myself!

Our small town has three Dunkin' Donuts and I believe it's because the fellow who owns all three franchises is a smart businessman and is trying to cover all his bases in preparation for the Krispy Kremes that are sure to come.

Dorothy and Scott:

I believe that it is important to set the record straight on this issue for fairness to all readers. First of all, Scott, you are welcome to post on the new board. That is true for all who post on this board. I realize that you may not want to as you view it as a "competing" service.

I believe that, about a little over a month ago, 2 groups of posters came to an impasse so a break was necessary. Scott, in my view, was clearly on the side of the opposing group. It was thus better for everyone, including Scott that the two groups go their separate ways. Without this action, there would have been ongoing squabbling without an end in sight.
I am convinced, that there exist some, who have a perverse pyschological need to maintain a state of animosity -- I don't feel that Scott is one of those but feel that there may have been one or two individuals with that need influencing Scott's thinking on the matter.

The other board, and site that will be connected to it operates under a different set of rules. Those are rules that many of us feel compfortable with-- perhaps not one's that others would. At least there is a choice.

ScottR, your comments about the outsourcing issue are very well taken and I think are very valid. There is a trade off we had to make. Such trade offs present exactly the problems ScottR has mentioned. What we get back, as a "plus" in the trade is that the board requires registrations, and as such, limits "hit and run" posts and problems with "trolls," spammers and others who may be considered disruptive to the board.
We are largely dependend on the "skills" of the people who things have been outsourced to, to control such potential problems. I am a aware of a definite hacker who had changed "fonts" on Scott's book but that was quite a while ago. On the other hand, the so-called more recent "trolls" are getting fewer here and may represent some remnants of the many who were either "blocked (formally)" , purged, run off, offended into leaving or whatever. Many who left were prodded and goaded so don't be surprised if some decided to take an occasional parting jab. If anything, giving those individuals a new place to go should only make them lose interest faster in this site. Unfortunately, without knowing how to reach some of them and their true names, I don't know any way other to reach them other than to assume they may still come by to read this site and find the new site via a post -- so not allowing a link has both advantages and disadvantages to Scott. Some early attempts at forming a link were blocked.

You may note that the manner in which the boards are divided are different. We have a "coffee house" for "chit chat" and support but we also have a board for "hot topics." That "division" solves a longstanding issue that existed on the social board here. I thought that a reasonable compromise was provided by ScottR but some would not tolerate the compromise. Now, that is where many of us took issues with Scott. Scott, we felt, was gracious in providing the compromise, but when some seemed determined to make the compromise not work, Scott took their side instead of defending the compromise.

Scott, you built your site based a combination of personal experiences, "blood and sweat," and collective information garnered from hundreds of posters and thousands of readers. You don't display a "hit counter" and am still not sure why. The thing I have oft emphasized to you is that you have far more readers than posters which such a counter demonstrates and it is important to satisfy the readers, not just the posters. I can testify to that as I was an occasional reader almost two years before I made my first post. Readers must feel that they are in a friendly environment, and I am sorry to say, Scott, you have too often made decisions based on the wants and advice of a small band of hard core posters who, I assume, you get more than enough email from. I was most pleasantly surprised to see you stand up for the integrity of your site and a particular poster (King).

As for the near future, going separate ways, is the only thing I can see.
ScottR, if you have a change of heart, let us know and we can discuss things -- perhaps merging the new board/site back into yours, simply giving you a bigger and better site. Believe me, I have very little time and desire to construct and run a website and have my hands full with other things.

Hello you two - and everyone else

There's nothing like getting away from it all, even for 24 hours, to give one a sense of perspective and proportion. The heelspurs frazzle of the last few days seems very far away as I sit at this unfamiliar and frustrating computer, replete with a lovely meal, the sea in front of me, the mountains behind. But some things don't change.

John: free speech is important. It's absolutely vital in a democracy. Of course there is no argument about that. But things can go wrong.

When one person's, or group's free speech has the effect of stifling another's, then it is time to think about what has gone wrong, because something clearly has. It is written in our constitution that EVERYONE has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. What has happened at heelspurs during the last year is that one vocal group has stifled everyone else, and so some people no longer have those rights. The board had become a platform for a certain political agenda.

People were unhappy with this, and began to feel this was not a place they wanted to be, not a place where they felt comfortable. That was sad, and Scott has tried to deal with it.

Now I am going to bed, with the sound of the sea in my ears and the sky up above, full of stars. I'm getting my sense of proportion back - but I am still quite sure that it is right to deal with what has gone wrong with this Social/Support board.

I've been going to a store run by a perdothist for a few years now. He recommended Dansko, and his store has lots ("lots" being a relative term here, it has several choices, not dozens like the big shoe stores) of Dankso & Birkenstock & New Balance, as well as some other brands. They also have Strasborg socks (I almost bought some but wrong size and we were there for my daughter today, not me). Today they didn't have sufficient selection for my daughter so we tried another store I had seen (it's next door to a Chico's - my very favorite clothing store). There were no Dansko's or Birkenstocks or New Balance. There was something like An-ken (that's close, but not very, it started with an "A", and had a hyphen in the name), and the shoes with springs in the heels, and Saucony. I believe they are a franchise (foot.com?), but this store was run by a couple of perdothist. When I asked about what kind of shoes for my feet, I got an answer that sounded technical and competent - just like the first shoe store - but the two stores didn't say the same thing. This store talked about "deep heel" (I think that's the term). The first store talked about a shoe that provided a rocking motion and ankle support (something DAnsko obviously doesn't supply). They didn't exactly contradict each other, but didn't talk about the same things. They said the reason they didn't have Birks was cuz of competition with a store in a neighboring town, and they didn't have Dansko, but the franchise did make them available so they could be ordered.

Does any of this give you any information as to whether one or the other school (or both, or neither) store is good. I hate spending over $100 for a pair of shoes and not knowing whether it's a good idea.

What Would Be Happening In Iraq If We Did Not Invade And What Is Happening Now!

By Ryan Thompson on 08/03/03
Printer friendly version

Democrats are launching attacks on the President’s creditability and leadership due to the killing of American soldiers in Iraq and the lack of weapons of mass destruction discoveries, but the Democrats need to analyze the whole picture in regards to Iraq. If they analyze the whole picture in their slanted Democrat minds, their brains might explode because they are wrong for the following reasons.

Mass Graves
If we did not liberate the people of Iraq, Saddam and his sons would be still filling the graves with Iraqi’s who expressed discontent for the regime still. Most international humanitarian organizations agree that at least three hundred thousand Iraqi’s were slaughtered by Saddam’s regime since 1991. Why are the Democrats against the liberation of Iraq seeing we just stopped the slaughter of children by Saddam? I thought the liberals of the Democratic Party were compassionate, but their position shows how they put policy before humanity.

The Dictatorship of Saddam
Saddam Hussein ruled Iraq with an iron fist for over twenty years until the “Coalition of the Willing” kicked him out as reigning sovereign. Slowly but surely, democracy is taking foot in Iraq beginning on the local level and slowly working towards the creation of a free national government. The Democrats claim that they support democracy, but honestly I believe that they only like democracy when it elects them to office.

A Free Society
The people of Iraq when Saddam was in control lived in fear. Basically the level of oppression prevented the people from living life, as we know it. When Saddam reigned, Shiites and Kurds were disenfranchised and the Sunnis of Saddam’s tribe helped him consolidate his power into tyranny not seen since the days of Hitler. The new Iraqi Governing Council shows the equality that all Iraqi’s are beginning to experience for the first time in thirty years. I thought liberals supported a free society in the United States, but from their reaction to the freeing of Iraqi society I doubt they truly support a free world.

Weapons of Mass Destruction
Nobody ever doubted the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq before the war. The United Nations believed that the regime of Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. Saddam Hussein has used biological and chemical weapons against his own people and the people of Iran.

Signs of weapons of mass destruction have surfaced across Iraq so far, and more will be discovered, as we look further. The toxicity of the Tigris River is not an accident, but the work of the former regime. Some international experts believe that Saddam ordered the dumping of chemical agents into the water supply of Iraq. The regime of Saddam has done this before during the Iran-Iraq War when he poisoned the water supply of Iranians and Iraqis who supported Iran with chemical weapons. Liberals should study the past, and realize the reason that they water supply of Iraq, especially the Tigris River, is so toxic. Maybe they should taste the water themselves to see if Saddam committed the act of ecological terrorism.

Also, American forces have discovered two trailers that were used to produce biological and chemical weapons. These are production systems described in the February 5th speech by Secretary of State Colin Powell in front of the United Nations Security Council. After through inspections of the two trailers, the inspectors concluded that the only use for these vehicles was to produce biological or chemical weapons. In my mind, those trailers convince me that Saddam Hussein had a weapons of mass destruction program even though I knew that he had a program before the find.

Further evidence of the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction program is the finding of a nuclear centrifuge under a rosebush in the backyard of a nuclear scientist in Baghdad. A nuclear centrifuge is a key element in enriching of uranium. Enriched uranium is the main component of a nuclear weapon. The nuclear centrifuge is the key evidence in the hunt for proof of the nuclear program of Saddam Hussein. Liberals who ignore the centrifuge are ignorant in the area of chemistry seeing anyone who has taken chemistry knows what centrifuges are used for, separating and enriching material! I think liberals use a centrifuge to enrich their liberal cool-aid.

If the preceding was not enough evidence for you that Hussein had a weapons of mass destruction program, further evidence is being processed as I write by a team led by David Kay. According to Mr. Kay, the team searching for the evidence of weapons of mass destruction has located over eighteen miles of documents in regards to Iraq’s weapons programs.

The Post War Phase
Liberals around the world continue to attack the effort to bring democracy to Iraq. The liberal crybabies are saying we have entered a Vietnam style quagmire, but again if they understood history they would see the folly in their viewpoint. First, Vietnam was not an offensive operation, but a defensive operation where there was not clear goal, thanks to Democrats! Next, we have the support of the majority of Iraqi people in regards to our military and political mission. In Vietnam, we never had the support of the majority of the public in North or South Vietnam.

The post war operations in Iraq resemble more the post war operations in Germany and Japan after World War Two. When you compare the operations in Germany and Japan to the current operations in Iraq, the activities in Iraq are further along in progress compared to both of the post World War Two operations at ninety days after the end of the major combat activities. Again, liberals do not understand the past so they are not capable of making educated decisions on present issues.

No matter what we find or how successful we are in Iraq, the liberals will not be happy with any of it because they plot against President and our nation with their political policy.

Tammy:

It is good to see that a more definitive diagnosis has been arrived at.
I too, am a bit uncomfortable with the first opinion. I am not convinced about the Baxter's nerve issue. Such coalitions are not common so if someone states that they "do a lot of them" that is only possible if that is perhaps a practitioner with a national reputation who is getting referrals from a large geographic area. If the coalition is indeed fibrous, there is generally no need to "chisel bone."

middle facet fibrous talocacaneal coalition View Thread
Posted by Tammy L on 7/03/03 at 10:01

Hi, I'm looking for some advice. I have been having foot pain for several years now. For years I was being treated for plantar faciitis. Finally, I was sent for an MRI.

The MRI results were as follows:
Findings: There is evidence of a fibrous talocalcaneal calition involving the middle facel th the calcaneus. No bony fusion is identified. No subjacent bone marrow edema is present. Osseous structures are oterwise within normal limits.
There is abnormal morphology and signal intensisty of the spring ligament, most consistent witha sprain. No other ligamentous or tendon abnormality is demonstrated. Ther is a small to moderate sized joint effusion present.
The achilles tendon is within normal limits. The plantar fascia is also grossly normal. There is a marker over the plantar aspect of the foot, but no underlying signal abnormality is seen.
Impression:1.fibrous taocalcaneal coalition 2. abnormal morphology of the spring ligament, likey represesenting a strain. THis could be related to altered mechanics due ot hte coalition 3. grossly normal plantar fascia


A ct scan showed:
the subtalar joints are maintained, with no evidence of osseous coalition. The articular surfaces demonstrate no evidence of sclerosis or bony hypertrophy, no indirect signs of fibrous union.
Distal tibiofibular syndesmosis is maintained.
No soft tissue abnormalities are identified.
Talonavicular, calcaneocuboid articulations are normal.

I've seen 3 different doctors since these tests. Two of them agree with the tarsal coalition findings (as do I) and are willing to operate. Both warn that the surgery can result in more pain.

The 1st gives me 85% success rate since I am only 32 and not overweight. He also wants to do a release of the baxter's nerve though. I am uncomfortable with this. He says the worst side effect of this in numbness. He says that fibrous coalitions are relatively easy and he does a lot of them, but that mine is in an odd location and he has never done one there before.

The 2nd gives me 50/50 odds and doesn't recommend playing with the nerves. This one says that the location of my coalition isn't all that uncommon, but he keeps mentioning chiselling bone. I explained to him that the 1st dr. didn't think that was necessary since it is fibrous and not bony and then he agreed that the other dr. was probobly right.

Can anyone recommend a 3rd dr. for an opinion in the upstate NY area? Being 32 isn't it odd that it hasn't become bony already and is there a chance that it may become bony still?

I can feel an actual ache where the coalition is. Days that I am on my feet a lot, my whole heel seems to throb.

Thanks for your help.

Has anti-war movement
been hijacked?
Terror alliances, radical politics
revealed at forefront

While publicly promoting non-violent protest and humanitarian causes, some key leaders and prominent groups that organized and participated in the recent anti-war demonstrations at the U.S. Capitol and San Francisco are staunch supporters of terrorist groups and dictatorial regimes worldwide.

In fact, critics now charge that the "new" anti-war movement is being "hijacked" by this dominant network whose organizational power is increasing and whose political agenda is anathema to most Americans.

The Saturday, Oct. 26 rally, which focused on opposition to a U.S.-led war against Iraq and drew 100,000 protesters, featured speeches by the Rev. Jesse Jackson, the Rev. Al Sharpton, actress-activist Susan Sarandon, singer-songwriter Patti Smith, as well as a host of lesser-known figures. The protests also served as a platform for Democratic Party campaigning, as top politicos hobnobbed with the elite of the anti-war movement.

The large turnout signals an invigoration of the "new" anti-war movement, which has been increasingly dominated by the international A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition, an organizational front group formed by the International Action Center. Closely allied with IAC is the World Workers Party, a quasi-Stalinist organization that supports authoritarian regimes and communist dictatorships. The World Workers Party created the IAC in 1992, and put Ramsey Clark, now kingpin of the anti-war movement, at the head of it.

Also at the forefront in the weekend demonstration and current anti-war protests was the "Not In Our Name" campaign. NOIN spokesman Clark Kissinger represents that movement to the public and is an integral part of Refuse and Resist, an organization with close ties to the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, of which Kissinger is a member and writer for its newspaper.

The controversial ties of IAC remain almost completely unreported by the mainstream media, but increasingly are being exposed by a handful of enterprising journalists, including Michelle Goldberg of Salon.com, Ian Williams, United Nations correspondent for The Nation; Michael Tremoglie, Edward Immler and David Horowitz of FrontPage Magazine and Christopher Hitchens, a 20-year veteran of The Nation magazine, now writing independently.

The controversy has now spread to the commentary pages of Mother Jones and also has Justin Raimondo of Antiwar.com crying foul while bemoaning San Francisco's "Baghdad-by-the-Bay" protest experience.

"Pathetic" is how Raimondo described the protest, complaining that those in charge of the demonstration "weren't about to brook any criticism of either their ideology or their methods: this was the only show in town, and they weren't about to give it up."

Now, a small but growing number at both ends of the political spectrum, as well as libertarian activists and writers, are accusing the organization's elite of being sellouts to foreign dictators while giving lip service to humanitarian concerns. Some warn that this "patina of morality" obfuscates a surreptitious political agenda: the armed overthrow of the American republic.

Leading critics from both left and right now charge the leaders with supporting the very things against which they claim to be protesting.

"The International Action Center and the Revolutionary Communist Party [USA] aren't just extremists in the service of a good cause," says Michelle Goldberg, a writer with Salon.com. "They are cheerleaders for some of the most sinister regimes and insurgencies on the planet."

"Once people realize this," Goldberg adds, "it could easily discredit any nascent anti-war movement, unless a more rational group comes to the forefront."

Sock puppet for Saddam?

The founder of the IAC and director for A.N.S.W.E.R. is Ramsey Clark, who is introduced at IAC rallies as the former attorney general under the Lyndon Johnson administration. No mention is made of the fact that Clark, in his current occupation, has been retained by the State of Iraq to serve as legal counsel for the regime.

Not surprisingly, criticism of Saddam Hussein is not aired at IAC/A.N.S.W.E.R.-controlled protest events. No mention is made of Saddam's gassing of the Kurds, invasion of Kuwait, murder of an estimated 1 million of his own people, environmental terrorism, imprisonment, torture or execution of political prisoners.

The suffering of the Iraqi people is blamed solely on the United States, just as the suffering of Palestinians is blamed solely on Israel.

IAC/A.N.S.W.E.R leaders have aligned themselves exclusively with pro-Arafat groups. The only Jewish people truly embraced as "brothers and sisters" are those who equally denounce Israel or deny Israel's right to exist. A.N.S.W.E.R's pro-Palestinian march in April was regarded by many, in fact, little more than a thinly disguised public display of anti-Semitism masquerading as a "pro-Palestinian" march. Frequent mention was made at the march of a "supposed holocaust," and of a "genocide" in Jenin, despite the fact that New York Times reporters allowed into the area had already discredited such reports as erroneous.

The "genocide" claims dominated the rally, even though fatality estimates had already been downgraded from 500 down to 56-90, most of which, according to media reports, were said to be terrorists.

Clark represented PLO leaders in a suit brought by the family of Leon Klinghoffer, the elderly tourist who was shot and thrown overboard from the hijacked Achille Lauro cruise-ship by renegade Palestinian terrorists in 1986.

And while accusing the Bush administration and Israel of Nazi-like war crimes, Clark fails to mention his former client Karl Linnas, an ex-Nazi concentration camp guard in Estonia, where he had overseen the murder of some 12,000 resistance fighters and Jews. Linnas was at that time being deported from the U.S. to the U.S.S.R. to face war-crimes charges. Clark lost the case, but went to bat for his client in the public arena. According to media reports, Clark said that he questioned the need to prosecute Nazis "forty years after some god-awful crime they're alleged to have committed."

While consistently denouncing the American and Israeli "terrorist states," IAC leadership, headed by Clark, have defended dictator Slobodan Milosevic in the International Criminal Court. They also leapt to the aid of genocidal Hutu militias as the U.N. wrote up war-crime charges against their leaders for ordering the slaughter of half a million Tutsi civilians in 1994.

Clark client, Rwanda genocide indictee Pastor Elizaphan Ntakirutimana, was accused of telling Tutsis to hide in his church and then summoning Hutus to massacre them. The genocidal leader later led killing squads in the "hell on earth" that Rwanda quickly became.

Elsewhere in the media:


The WWP supported the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre of protesting students and workers, who were conveniently labeled "counter-revolutionaries."

Clark and his backers also were quick to cheer on the brutal Chinese repression of the indigenous culture in Tibet (which sent the Dalai Lama and 80,000 refugees packing).

The WWP has wooed the Democratic Party, and supported Jesse Jackson's presidential bid in 1984. In New York, the WWP made alliances with the left wing of the Democrats in order to establish a strategic foothold in key trade unions.

Clark has defended convicted war criminal Radovan Karadzic, in a New York civil suit brought by Bosnian rape victims. The suit, brought by the National Organization for Women and the Center for Constitutional Rights, charged Karadzic with ordering mass rape and war crimes.
Serbia also has retained Clark as counsel. Accordingly, no outrage over Serbian ethnic cleansing or rapes will ever be heard at an IAC/A.N.S.W.E.R. rally. Nor will mention be made of the siege of Sarajevo, the killings at Srebrenica or the million homeless refugees. Clark and the IAC make no mention of the notorious tortures held at the Serbian police station on Cacak Street in central Pristina.

The scene was discovered by British paratroopers and the media, who described "a bed, with leather straps, its ratty yellow mattress plunged through with bayonet and bullet holes, and clothes of its victims piled in the corner." Reporter Laura Rozen described it as a "house of torture" still reeking of "rotting human flesh" where Kosovo Albanians, many of them teen-agers and children, were brutally raped, beaten and killed. Stashed on the scene were all manner of torture instruments, as well as violent pornography.

Nevertheless, at the Oct. 26 rally, IAC staff introduced Clark to an adulating crowd as a "man of extraordinary principles and conscience."

'The war criminal's best friend

Detractors from both the left and the right denounce Clark for his "straightforward dishonesty," calling him the "tyrant-in-chief," a "traitor" and "the war criminal's best friend."

Overall, the IAC-WWP-A.N.S.W.E.R. triaxis, firmly at the helm of the anti-war movement, unequivocally supports Iraq, while instructing protestors that the U.S. is the foremost terrorist threat to the world. In addition they claim that Osama bin Laden was the victim of an imperialist American plot. Brian Becker, member of the secretariat of the World Workers Party, national co-director for the IAC and a member of the national A.N.S.W.E.R. steering committee, is admired by the North Korean dictatorship for his loyalty to their state as well. At a press conference in Pyongyang, Becker denounced the U.S. for "mercilessly killing innocent people." In May of 2001, FBI Director Louis Freeh labeled the World Workers Party a potential threat to U.S. national security – a status certain to be explained by the WWP/IAC (as is most criticism) as a conspiratorial smear by warmongers.

WorldNetDaily asked Larry Holmes, co-director of IAC and spokesperson for A.N.S.W.E.R., to comment on Clark's retention as counsel for the state of Iraq. Holmes replied, "He's just a spokesman." When WND indicated that Clark was in fact the founder of IAC as well as the director of the international A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition, Holmes deferred comments to Clark, who was unavailable for an interview.

Asked to comment on what detractors call the "Pro-Saddam" slant of the IAC and its failure to criticize Iraq or Saddam Hussein, Holmes responded: "We live in America. We have to take some responsibility for what the government is trying to do in our name. I think it’s wise for us to stay focused. It’s U.S. foreign policy that we must be responsible for."

He added, "There's an effort to vilify Iraq and its government and not on an honest basis … but as a very conscious effort to demonize a government for the purpose of making it easier to move forward with war." Asked whether he would support war on Iraq if it attacked first, Holmes evaded the question, indicating it would be the U.S.' fault for planning a pre-emptive strike.

Pressed to answer the same question in a scenario where Iraq attacked after the U.S. gives up plans for a pre-emptive strike, Holmes still declined to answer: "That's just a hypothetical," he said. "I don't think that Iraq poses a threat to this country – it's a transparent search of pretexts for war. No one talks about oil, and the geopolitical reasons for invading the country. Media is not saying that this is really the reason they're going to war. Government and corporations want to occupy Iraq for oil."

Holmes added that the idea of Iraq attacking the U.S. was as ridiculous as Jamaica or Haiti attacking.

'Peace Congress' to undo U.S. Congress?

The next move for the IAC is to convene a "Peace Congress" the weekend of Jan. 18 and 19, coinciding with Martin Luther King’s birthday.

"Congress rushed and rubber-stamped the war issue," Holmes complained. "It's time to expose the very serious fact that Congress was not listening to the people." There will be delegations from every state, as well as from labor unions. "They will pass resolutions concerning how the budget should be used – for jobs and education," Holmes explained. In addition, there may be marches on Monday, Jan. 20 as well.

WND asked Homes to explain the logic behind saying the American people were "not heard," since the U.S. has a representative form of government and it was elected officials that voted.

"It failed," Homes said. "That's the problem. At a time when anti-war sentiment was going through the charts, late September for example, when Congress had calls and e-mails 40-1 against the war – they very quickly and cowardly and sheepishly voted so the issue would go away."

'The really beautiful thing'

Especially prominent at the Oct. 26 rally was the "Not In Our Name" campaign, which ran a large ad in the New York Times and whose slogan was central to IAC speakers. At least one member of the media labeled the campaign a "really beautiful thing."

Represented by Clark Kissinger, the ad campaign was lauded by Hartford Courant writer Frank Rizzo, who quoted the activist as saying: "People have been longing for this. It's a statement that basically repudiates the whole direction of things. It's about American empire-building."

FrontPage Magazine writer Michael Tremoglie laments Rizzo's failure, however, to inform readers of the details behind Kissinger or his organization: "The same journalists who will be more than happy to tell their readers that a group is related to, or receives funds from, say the NRA or the Christian Coalition or the dreaded Scaife Foundation, will never mention the relationship of a liberal group with communist organizations – even if such organizations are labeled terrorist by the FBI," says Tremoglie.

Kissinger's Refuse and Resist runs information releases from the Revolutionary Communist Party USA on its site. The following are some of the goals and ideologies of the party as expressed in the party's newspaper, "Revolutionary Worker," for which Kissinger writes. They give an indication of what leader Kissinger and associates plan for the U.S.


Its ideology is Maoist/Leninist/ Marxist communism, and its capstone program for the U.S. is called "Create Public Opinion – Seize Power."

Party members are being told to prepare and plan for "a future armed uprising" leading to a "civil war" in the U.S. primed by "a major crack in the system" – a destabilizing event that will enable the RCP to "seize power" in a violent insurrection that replaces the American government with a "Communist proletarian dictatorship." Says RCP, "We are preparing minds and organizing forces for the time" – the time when "revolutionary crisis breaks out."

RCP officials say they are "doing everything to help bring about, as quickly as possible, the conditions where we can begin the highest form of the struggle – the fight for power over society … when, 'all of a sudden,' millions are starting to bust loose. When there is a great upheaval throughout society. … Then it is time to strike – and to hold back nothing – time to take power by force and arms. … That time is coming, and we must get ourselves and others ready for it."
Central to this plan is a stated effort to convince Americans that their government is illegitimate and therefore can and should be overthrown and its institutions seized. At the Oct. 26 rally, Clark referred to President Bush's foreign policy as "criminal offenses, they are high crimes, they are indictable offenses, and they are impeachable offenses."

Repeated throughout the rally was the notion that the American government as a whole had lost its legitimacy, and leaders called on protesters "to seize all the major institutions," "to take democracy back" and "occupy the Capitol," a clarion call with obviously widely different meanings for different groups:


The RCP expects the armed uprising to follow along Leninist lines in the confrontation of "economic relations with employers" or "immediate exploiters and oppressors."

They have been working to "spread our influence through society, especially where people are protesting or rebelling." To this end RCP advises its members to spread out like "seeds" and plant themselves into other organizations, so that the RCP's cohesive plan is harder to detect and define, while its influence spreads.

Agitation and manipulation of those at the lowest levels of society is key. It's noted that these people generally feel they have "nothing left to lose" and will be most likely to take up arms in order to facilitate the leaders' power grab. Key is convincing them of a victimhood status where those who have more personally owe them something. From there the thinking is developed to convince the unfortunate to steal others' material effects by force of arms. But it’s clear that the real intent is to use the lower class for personal gain.

The eruption of an "actual crisis" is anticipated as the pivot point for the activities of the RCP. This is where "the authority of the ruling class and both its right and its ability to rule are called fundamentally into question." It adds that the "crisis will be marked by sharp divisions within the ruling class itself, reaching into its major pillars of power, including the armed forces."

While the RCP promises that this civil war will usher in a "global community of freely associating individuals," whites will not have the same rights of association as minorities. The program calls for allowing "people of color" to "just live around other people of their race" if they desire, but a similar allowance will "not be [made] for white people," who are seen as particularly untrustworthy. This, in spite of the fact that the RCP’s leader, Bob Avakian, is a white male. (Whites are seen as the least likely to submit to the RCP revolution.) According to media reports, Avakian is now in France, hiding out from the FBI.

While the Associated Press reported that the Maoist guerilla-led insurgency in Nepal left hundreds dead, the RCP called the bloody uprising "glorious" – a far cry from the anti-violence rhetoric of the big rally in the nation's capital.

In addition, the RCP supports the brutally violent "Shining Path" of Peru. The RCP website boasts of killings perpetrated by Shining Path members and notes "rulers in Peru fear the Maoist People's Party." The approved killings include those of police, army personnel and any civilians who disagree with the Shining Path.
In a Workingforchange.com article, writer Geov Parrish recalls Kissinger, identified as a "core member" of the RCP: "I still have vivid memories of Kissinger explaining calmly to me why when the RCP took over it would be necessary to shoot everyone who didn't agree with them."

Despite the murder/mayhem tactical line of the RCP, Kissinger ironically called President George W. Bush a "blood-stained executioner" and the Republican National Convention the "Executioners Ball."

Kissinger also publicly vilifies Homeland Security head Tom Ridge as "really scary" because Ridge supports the death penalty for murderers.

WND asked Larry Holmes, co-director of IAC and spokesperson for A.N.S.W.E.R., whether he foresees an armed uprising, should January's "Peace Congress" and all other efforts fail to overturn the U.S. Congress' vote.

"That’s nothing that we can get involved in," said Holmes. "We can have dramatic and creative protests, though."

When asked to comment on the RCP’s support for armed uprising, Holmes said, "I don't know that that's what they're planning." When told that taking up arms against the U.S. government was indeed a stated key part of RCP's plan, and asked whether he and the IAC support that plan, Holmes responded, "That sounds just like rhetoric," and added: "We have to be very careful now, not to be talking about these things – with the Patriot Act and all, you know, Attorney General John Ashcroft is just looking for excuses to pick people up, detain them, and throw them into prison for no reason at all. We don't want to give the FBI or feds a pretext to move against them [the RCP]."

WorldNetDaily attempted to contact Revolutionary Communist Party national spokesman Carl Dix, but his two phone numbers had been disconnected. No one was answering phones at the RCP Publications PR office and a message left was not returned.

9-11: 'Nothing personal'

IAC associate Lynne Stewart, labeled by detractors as "the terrorist lawyer," is also an influential presence at IAC events. A civil-rights attorney, Stewart was recruited by Clark to defend the "blind Sheik" Omar Abdel Kahman, later convicted as being the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and the planner behind the proposed bombings of New York City landmarks, including the Lincoln and Holland tunnels.

In April of this year, Stewart was handcuffed outside her Brooklyn apartment and indicted on two charges of lying to the government and two charges of aiding a terrorist organization. The charges stemmed from recorded conversations between Stewart and her client. Attorney General Ashcroft charged that Stewart knowingly participated in aiding the sheik in communicating with an Egyptian terrorist organization.

Stewart denied the charges, portraying herself as the victim of a frightening police state, run by a power-mad administration. But the activist’s reputation was badly damaged when the supposedly sealed affidavit for a search warrant was leaked to Court TV and somehow wound up posted on The Smoking Gun website.

Included were transcripts of the wiretaps that revealed Stewart knowingly allowed the sheik, in violation of federal law, to dictate information to be passed to terrorists. That information passed to an Egyptian terrorist organization included an order to end a cease-fire and the message to "to fight the Jews and kill them wherever they are."

Later, after a meeting of Stewart supporters was canceled, she would voice concern to New York Times writer George Packer, over "Jewish and Zionist supporters" of the radical associations she is involved with. Perhaps they were driving her supporters away, she worried.

In addition, Stewart joked on tape that she should get an acting award for fooling prison guards into thinking she was engaged in a legal lawyer-client conversation.

At the recent Washington, D.C., rally, Stewart gleefully joined protesters in a chant of "Ashcroft sucks! Ashcroft sucks!" She again portrayed the attorney general as a prominent threat to America, denouncing his Patriot Act as a profound and unforgivable violation of civil rights.

A few protestors called for Ashcroft’s death and the hanging of Bush administration officials.

Ironically, according one writer, "The social and cultural rights claimed by [Ramsey Clark's] Iraqi hosts include the right to hang opponents in public."

In addition to speaking at IAC-led protests advocating "non-violent" resistance, Stewart had this to say in a 1995 New York Times interview: "I don't believe in anarchist violence, but in directed violence. That would be violence directed at the institutions who perpetrate capitalism, racism and sexism, and the people who are the appointed guardians of those institutions."

In a recent New York Times article, author George Packer wrote about Stewart's attitude toward 9-11: "When the towers fell, she felt that her city had been violated and her own life disrupted. But this warm-hearted woman took the slaughter of innocents with a certain cold-bloodedness. The Pentagon was a 'better target'; the people in the towers 'never knew what hit them. ... They took it personally. And actually, it wasn't a personal thing.'"

Packer continued, "As for civilian deaths in general: [Stewart said] 'I'm pretty inured to the notion that in a war or in an armed struggle, people die. They're in the wrong place. ... So I have a lot of trouble figuring out why that is wrong, especially when people are placed in a position of having no other way.' Stewart doubts the government's version of Osama bin Laden, nor does she find him too 'repugnant' to represent.'"

Writer and novelist Michael Tremoglie comments, "Obviously, Stewart's worldview meshes seamlessly with that of Saddam Hussein, Yasser Arafat, the blind Sheik and Osama bin Laden. And with that of ... Brain Becker, Ramsey Clark and the World Workers Party."

He adds, "There are many legitimate defense attorneys who provide legal defenses for clients with whom they do not themselves sympathize. Lynne Stewart, Ramsey Clark are not among them."

If convicted, Stewart faces up to 40 years in prison.

A 'hijacked' movement?

Michelle Goldberg of Salon.com writes of the "hijacking" of the "new" anti-war movement, and contends that the political views of the anti-war protest leaders are "anathema" to most Americans.

Libertarian Justin Raimondo of antiwar.com agrees, but still feels there’s hope for the movement: "The people who came to these demonstrations – 100,000 in Washington – don't share the politics of the organizers. Indeed, there aren't many people on earth – save in North Korea – who share the politics of the organizers. I won't go into a long tirade about those politics – the 'International A.N.S.W.E.R.' 'coalition' is, in reality, a front for a group of particularly kooky leftists, the Workers World Party."

"Suffice to say that I'm not alone in my criticisms," says the activist, "and that dissatisfaction with having admirers of Kim IL-Sung representing the antiwar movement has bubbled up from the rank-and-file."

Indeed, some have expressed deep concern that they not be "painted with the same brush."

"Here, at this solemn moment, as the nation teeters on the brink of a disastrous war," Raimondo adds, "and rational arguments are called for, what do we get? 'Rah rah, sis-boom bah! Hooray for us, and [expletive deleted] the rest of the country.'"

"The only relief from tirades against capitalism came when a few Democratic party politicians trooped to the microphone, telling us how we need "regime change in Washington" – so as to give the Other War Party a chance to prove its warmongering bona fides," he said.

"The movement has been hijacked by a bunch of neo-Stalinists," complains Raimondo, "who, oddly enough, utilize their hopped-up 'radical' rhetoric in the service of the most conventional Democratic Party politics imaginable.”

"It was a revealing moment, and a truly disgusting sight,” he said.

'Extremist Islamic backings'

"The Pull," a "hacktivist" with the infamous "Cult of the Dead Cow" hacking group, told WND: "I find that [they] generally are extremely biased and they operate as a cult. While there are communist backings behind them, there are also extremist Islamic backings ... and many of their 'liberal' ideas were first found amongst Neo-Nazi cults."

The Cult of the Dead Cow, former bad-boy hackers, now use their skills to work through underground channels to help members of oppressed populations gain access to state-forbidden Internet information – most notably Western news sites, human-rights websites, and "gay" and lesbian organizations.

To this end they pass hacking tools to members of Communist and radical Islamic countries – tools designed to enable citizens to break through firewalls, in order to gain freer access to such information. In addition, they are outspoken opponents of communist dictatorships and authoritarian regimes. They also have the distinction of being banned by the United Arab Emirates.

Commenting on the controversial elements of the anti-war leadership, "The Pull" added, "Two of their [mentors] … have a history of supporting ruthless dictators and slaughters," referring to Noam Chomsky and Edward Said. "Chomsky has covered up Sudan and the slaughters behind the Soviet Union. His works are full of extremely biased errors," he said.

"If these fellows [key leaders] are shown to be extremist communists and paid by Iraq, many of them will have a trained response" said "The Pull," such as that one should be interested in a person's points, not his personal life.

"They are obviously supporting a ruthless dictatorship against the U.S. in their fight," he said. "It is not with wonder that Iraqi-Americans turned out to counter-protest these groups."

"The Pull" was referring to a tiny counter-demonstration of about 200 people, held on a capitol street corner, organized by "Freepers" sporting "Tyranny Response Team" T-shirts. "Freeper" speakers challenged current leadership of the anti-war movement, accusing them of being sycophants in the service of brutal dictators. Among the "Freeper" speakers was former Clinton administration official Notra Trulock.

Trulock is former counter-intelligence chief for the Department of Energy, and a well-known whistleblower on national security counter-intelligence failures. He shot to fame as the target of FBI harassment meant to intimidate and silence his revelations. ("Freepers" are supporters of the Free Republic Network).

Their Iraqi guests, who addressed the crowd in both English and Arabic, spoke of atrocities committed by Saddam Hussein and pleaded for Americans to intervene militarily. For some, it was personal. Several of the Iraqi-American community members present said they had lost family members to Saddam Hussein's regime through execution or imprisonment.

Days after the event, Trulock told WorldNetDaily, "The mainstream media's coverage of last Saturday's 'anti-war protest' was a disgrace. Attorney General John Ashcroft ought to be looking hard at the degree to which the hard-left, 'hate America' crowd was driving this protest and how it was funded." Trulock currently is affiliated with Accuracy in Media, a journalism watchdog group.

'Morally tainted leadership'

Todd Gitlin, author of "The Sixties: Years of Hope and Days of Rage," also agrees with Goldberg's assessment.

Currently a Columbia University professor, the former president of Students for a Democratic Society fears the hypocrisy will result in a "gigantic ruination of the anti-war movement." Gitlin prefers peaceful and informative debates and "teach-ins" where all are allowed (and expected) to present honest, rational arguments for their views.

"They should be holding debates," contends Gitlin, "not rallies of the faithful."

"Clark and others of his mindset are not only morally tainted," adds the professor, "they're doomed. And the anti-war movement is doomed if they're allowed to lead it."

"This will not play in Peoria," warns Gitlin, "It does not deserve to play in Washington."

Funding of the antiwar movement View Thread
Posted by Ed Davis, DPM on 3/18/03 at 00:51

SEATTLE — Large anti-war protests come with a hefty price tag.


Money is needed to rent or buy stages, sound systems, permits and portable toilets, and tabs often run as high as $200,000 per demonstration — much more than the average grassroots peace group will ever have in its coffers.

So who is picking up the tab?

"The major anti-U.S. government demonstrations are organized by people who have been around for a long time, particularly the Workers World Party, which has existed for more than 30 years now and has always supported the enemies of the United States," said Herbert Romerstein, a retired agent of the U.S. Information Agency.

The Workers World Party describes itself as Marxist in nature.

Officially, protest organizers are groups such as Not in Our Name and International A.N.S.W.E.R., but the demonstration's sponsors have long histories of backing anti-government causes.

Not in Our Name is financed by the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization. I.F.C.O. is a million-dollar-a-year non-profit that supports Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and once sponsored a group headed by Sami Al-Arian — the University of South Florida professor being charged with fundraising for terrorist organizations Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

A.N.S.W.E.R. is an offshoot of the International Action Center, which intelligence officials say is a front for the Worker's World Party. A.N.S.W.E.R. canceled a scheduled interview with Fox News but a worker in the Seattle field office acknowledged there are ties.

"There are some Workers World Party members in A.N.S.W.E.R.," said A.N.S.W.E.R. coordinator Jim McMahan.

The International Action Center was founded by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who is a longtime public face of the anti-war movement.

The Workers World Party supports North Korea's brutal regime and I.F.C.O. defied U.N. sanctions when it made a trip to Iraq in the mid-1990s. Now, both are sugar daddies to the anti-war movement.

"The American people have the right to know whether stooges of [North Korean leader] Kim Jong Il or Castro or Saddam Hussein are involved in these demonstrations," Romerstein said.

The groups bankrolling these protests say they're spending their money the way donors would want, and protest organizers say it doesn't matter where the money comes from — the message is their own.

Others wonder if knowing the fringe politics of the people paying the bills might keep some demonstrators off the streets.

But anti-war organizers — regardless of their financial backing — are plugging ahead and are actually planning more aggressive action that they say will be hard to ignore, despite the fact that the United States is on the brink of war with Iraq.

"People will step up their actions, there will be active civil disobedience," said Simona Sharoni of United for Peace in Thurston County, Wash.

Direct Action, a San Francisco Bay-area group of anti-war veterans, has been drawing up their own battle plan should there be a war.

They say they will shut down 70 targets in San Francisco alone, including power plants, water systems, the Federal Reserve, oil companies, the Pacific Exchange and the Transamerica Building.

And their hit list goes beyond economic targets.

Some protesters are promising to chain themselves to fences at schools and day care centers so working parents will have to stay home from their jobs. Organizers say this will give others a chance to contemplate how war affects the children of Iraq.

"The civilians in Iraq are losing their lives and one day of work is worth a thousand lives," said Leone Reinbold, an anti-war activist in San Francisco.

Reinbold helped organize the World Trade Organization protest in Seattle three years ago. She blames the violence and damage on anarchists from the radical fringe, not the mainstream demonstrators.

All the same, police departments from coast to coast know that keeping things peaceful won't be easy.

"We know based on the last one that each preceding demonstration has been a little bit more volatile than the one before," said Deputy Chief Greg Suhr of the San Francisco Police Department.

Some protestors are vowing to bring traffic to a standstill, as they recently did on a Seattle bridge. But many wonder if paralyzing the morning commute and engaging in similar disruptions will win converts or make enemies of people losing patience with their tactics.

CIA's Woolsey Tells Court: Iraq Involved in 9/11

Former CIA Director James Woolsey offered bombshell testimony this week in a lawsuit brought by the families of World Trade Center victims that implicates Saddam Hussein in the 9/11 attacks.

The one-time Clinton administration intelligence chief described what he said was a conspiracy between al-Qaeda and Baghdad. As evidence he offered accounts from Iraqi defectors who have described a Boeing 707 jet parked on the ground at the terrorist training camp Salman Pak. The plane, the eyewitnesses insist, was used as a hijacking school prior to 9/11.

Since 1995 Saddam's most elite terror operatives had allegedly used Salman Pak to train al-Qaeda recruits to overcome U.S. flight crews using methods employed on 9/11, according to London's Observer newspaper. In November 2001, dozens of other reports, including several in the New York Times, covered news of Saddam's Salman Pak hijacking school based on the defectors' accounts.

"I believe it is definitely more likely than not that some degree of common knowledge between [al-Qaeda and Iraq] was involved here," Woolsey told a Manhattan federal court on Monday, according to the New York Daily News.

He compared the relationship between Baghdad and Osama bin Laden's terror network to two Mafia families "who hate each other, kill each other from time to time but are still capable of working together against a common enemy," according to testimony quoted by the Associated Press.

At the very least, Saddam Hussein is guilty of aiding and abetting the activities of al-Qaeda, Woolsey contended.

He also offered evidence suggesting that Baghdad had prior knowledge of the 9/11 attacks.

A July 21, 2001, article in an Egyptian newspaper, headlined "America, an Obsession with Osama bin Laden," indicated that Baghdad knew what was coming less than months later, the former U.S. intelligence chief told the court. The report, written by an Iraqi, predicted bin Laden would target both New York City and the Pentagon.

Woolsey noted a line in the story warning that bin Laden would "strike America on the arm that is already hurting," explaining that the phrase was likely a reference to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

No Iraqi journalist would write such a report without his government's knowledge and approval, Woolsey testified.

As far as I know, I think they do the Amfit thing. Of course, the orthosis is milled elsewhere, but the owners here are not c.peds or any other kind of foot professional, so I know they do not know how to do adjustments or modifications.

I looked at the Foot Solutions website. It appears that they may be using the services of CPeds. More impressed with their presentation than Goodfeet.

Re: Foot orthotic franchises? Hearing aid franchises. View Thread
Posted by Ed Davis, DPM on 1/29/03 at 19:43

Richard:
This whole thing is new to us but has been going on in the hearing aide business for years. My wife is an audiologist. Audiologists are really the only professional with complete training in hearing deficits and their treatment with assistive devices such as hearing aids. Miracle Ear and Beltone are two companies that have sold hearing aid franchises to lay people for years. Lay people who fit and dispense hearing aids are known as "hearing aid dispensers." They often attend audiology conventions. I can remember my wife coming back from one meeting quite frustrated after having an argument with a lady who was a hairdresser most of her life but bought a franchise and within two weeks, voila, was fitting hearing aids.
Eventually many states made the dispensers get a license or some sort of certification due to all of the problems that occur. Next time you talk to one of your older patients with a hearing aid who cannot understand a word you are saying, ask them where they got their device.

I believe that the new "arch support" franchises are emulating the hearing aid dispenser model. Eventually, enough people will complain and they will have some sort of regulation. I wish we could do a better job at educating the public though, in the mean time.

Foot orthotic franchises? View Thread
Posted by D.Thomas on 1/23/03 at 10:39



All this discussion has made me aware of other stores around my home. I found another franchise called "Foot Solutions" along with "GoodFeet". Actually Foot Solutions looks to have the capability of making custom made inserts, but I can't tell if they require a C.Ped at each store.

If they do not require a C.Ped at each store how can computer software be programmed to catch how you walk and other things besides just your foot print by standing. I remember when Brian (C.Ped) used a computer software to do mine, but he also played a major part in adding variables into the software that it couldn't do or measure.

It is interesting that I never noticed these stores until someone posted.

protest -- i lost the thread as usual View Thread

just because i percieve apologizing for saying interesting things does not necessarily mean it's happening. but if it is i think it's because folks have been jumped on for opinions here. if this is the case the solution in my mind is not to curb opinions but curb jumpers. that is all i was saying. but hey, i'm from brooklyn and some could argue mine is an abrupt and less than sensitive sensibility. hail ozzy. i rest my case. did you have a mcgovern flower on your car? do you remember shirlely chisolm. i supported her too. i was amazed i supported clinton and he won. i was quite worried about my intellect and character when that happened having never been on a winning side before or since. but things are back to normal now. i pick the losers and preen about my genuis.

Kingsly:

Don't expect strangers to send you money. What you need is a lucrative business.

I have the perfect business opportunity for you: the Good Feet Stores.
Think about it. You can treat foot problems without any knowledge of the foot and without a medical license. It is an all cash business. You sell cheap plastic arch supports for hundreds of dollars.

Best of all, you can tell your patients anything to make the sale. You don't have a medical license so you cannot be sued for malpractice or have your license suspended.

Don't delay. Open your franchise now!

I agree with Dr. Davis, I also really enjoy getting down to the nitty gritty in gait analysis studies and all that technical stuff (technical stuff...I'm such a professional..lol), but someone who does not know what they are looking for can not help you at all. I think someone with true experience can use their own eyes and figure out what is going on in someone's gait. Granted, there are things going on that can't be seen with the naked eye. This is one of the things that I really enjoy about my job.

Be aware that some, if not most, of these "technicians" are just franchise owners who do not know much, if anything, about proper foot care. I have one of these stores about five miles from my office. I usually end up having to fix their mistakes.

The "Relax the Back" stores have a couple different versions of the chair with one version allowing the platform that supports the hips to rock forward, allowing even more distraction of the lower vertebrae. They have quite a few manuals/books.

Keep the dog View Thread
Posted by Valerie S on 5/25/02 at 23:21

I vote for the dog photo, with the dog. You can state that the dog's not yours, but that you love animals... you look comfortable, caring and confident. Just my opinion, and I'd be scared of that dog in real life! Although you seem to somehow make it look like a little puppy, the way you're holding it... so... I say keep the mutt. The same photo without the dog looks a little corny. The dog adds a little machismo or something... I like it.

About that coding before sex thing though... you might want to find a woman who will bring her computer along with her on the date. Perhaps you can find a woman who appreciates the world you live in... and I think you're right, she's looking online too. Good luck, I'm married to a computer programmer myself. :P ... and don't give up, Scott... my husband was 34 when I met him.

Second choice after the dog photo would be "sweet," I think.

Hey, maybe you could turn these italics off? hee hee...

Val.

Re: Women are women and men are men. Both are human beings View Thread
Posted by JudyS on 1/28/02 at 12:13

Julie, in my 'long-winded' post I'd originally included a paragraph about the beauty and rewards of age in that it opens one's eyes to the rewarding acceptance of individual character as well as that of a body of folks in, say, a gender.
One of the most rewarding things I've learned with age is that maleness in men is very, very nice and to be admired. There was a time when I thought men had machismo just for the sake of some silly and shallow male ego. Not so. I was wrong. Machismo is indeed a uniquely male thing and a pleasure to realize, observe, and accept without question as long as it doesn't interfere with basic respect.
While I've worked pretty hard to make my way, unthreateningly, in typically male activities (I LOVE knocking down walls and playing ball) I've never been willing to give up my 'femaleness' to do so. And I've always been thrilled with being treated like a lady. I have a somewhat unique recreational life in that I spend lots of time in a dugout with men. We've been playing ball together for years and, over that time, the men have become comfortable with the knowlege that they don't have to worry about acute gentlemanliness in the dugout and they, and I, are more than willing to just be plain-old good teammates.
Granted there are rare moments when a newcomer or two may get raunchy about a female player but, frankly, they don't last long. Nobody, men and women alike, really likes that stuff.
There was never a time in my life that I disliked gentlemanly behavior. For women to tell men that being a gentleman is demeaning is ludicrous. Like you, I sincerely appreciate, and sometimes marvel at, the willingness of men to be gentlemen. After 25 years, I am still amazed, every time, when my husband nudges me to the inner edge of the sidewalk when we're out walking or jogging.
Perhaps this is a mixed message on my part?

Posted by wendyn on 12/28/01 at 15:44

Well - I don't know if I've "gotten over it" - but I'm a whole lot better than I was.

I too have some significant structural problems - and I'm not considered a surgical candidate. I've also been told I have (had?) RSD - but I do not really have the problems now that I used to.

2 years ago I did my Christmas shopping in a wheelchair (this started just around 3 years ago). My pain level was unreal - and the simplest tasks were very hard.

Now, I still get sore feet....and I do have bad days...BUT...

I go to the mall if I want
I can go to places like museums and the zoo - and I manage pretty well
I can cook and do normal things without too much thought
My bad days are not as bad as they used to be, and they are not as often

I can honestly say that if this is as good as it gets, I can live with this. I do not think I could say the same thing if I was where I was at 2 years ago. I am grateful for my improvements. I cannot walk really fast - or long distances - but for the most part my life is manageable. I still do find it difficult to stand in line, and if I had to stand every day on a bus I would be in trouble.

The biggest problem I have is in the winter because I have also not been able to find appropriate winter shoes.

I also had acupuncture done - and I do credit it with a good portion of my recovery. Also, yoga has helped for stretching, relaxation and pain control.

If you promise not to tell anyone else here.....I have a Christmas confession....


This year, fed up with dorky Birkenstocks and runners - I was intent on wearing a nice gown to the Christmas Party, and real shoes. I wore a long dress, and bought a pair of fairly low heeled dress shoes (sandals, no back).

I wore my real shoes right up to the entrance of the party, and then slipped on my dress shoes (carried my extra shoes plus tape if I needed it in a little Chistmas bag). I sat as much as possible, and I walked VERY carefully (my biggest concern was turning an ankle).

When it came time to dance I took off the shoes and danced in my stockings (eeeww - on hard floors)...but I survived.

My feet were moderatly sore for a few days, but I deserved it - and it was worth it. Even a year ago - a stunt like that would have done me in for months...but I have a pretty good idea of what I can get away with.

Re: orthotics needed or not? View Thread

Thanks very much. I am sending them back today and will try to get them chiselled down as much as possible cos I feel I am standing on my arches and feet aren't designed to work that way are they. Surely the best way to stop overpronation isn't to pressure the injured arch but try to stop the foot rolling too much. That suggests to me a gap is needed between the orthotic and the arch so it can roll a bit and be pressured less. I just can't seem to get `a little bit of arch support' it is always too much.

Yes, same for me, Brenda. I have pretty high arches so I tend to deduce that they are relatively 'short' from front to back, therefore most inserts put too much pressure right smack on the sore heel 'spot'. Dr. Z is seriously good at finding the 'spot'. He's a masochist, that's what he is!

Hi everyone.

Yesterday Julie posted a letter from a London newspaper. It was written by a British socialist with none-too-kind words for our country.

Here is my reply to this fine gentleman, inserted into his original text:


ORIG: What is even sadder than America's grief is that four-fifths of the world will not be sharing it.

REPLY: Yeah, but that same 4/5 would love to come here. "We hate you........now, how can we immigrate? How can we get our green cards? How can we get all our families & relatives over?"



ORIG: From the flooded deltas of Bangladesh,

REPLY: Flooded deltas? And your point is.........?



ORIG: where Kyoto represented a little hope,

REPLY: Hope of what, a world-wide Depression? Could that be why your British Parliament hasn't ratified Kyoto, sir? Could that be why the US Senate killed it 95-0 ? Surely you know that Kyoto has hardly any international backing, apart from a few fringe environmentalists, anarchists, & some idealistic college kids who don't know any better. The party's over.


ORIG: to the slums of Baghdad, where sanctions still kill.

REPLY: Really? So do poison gas, firing squads & torture chambers that Saddam routinely uses against his own people


ORIG: From the peasants of Latin America, whose forests are gone.

REPLY: By Jove, my good man! You've got me on that! Although I've travelled all over the world durung the past 3 decades, visiting 25+ countries on 6 continents, I have never met the "Peasants of the Forest"! But I'm sure they exist just as you say.

By the way, sir, have you ever been to Latin America? Have you ever been out of England?


ORIG: to the farmers of Bengal or Brazil who are told that patended seeds can only be bought from TransNat Co of New York.

REPLY: ?????? Gee, I guess Patent Law either exists or it doesn't; And your point would be.............?


ORIG: From Gaza to Sangatte, where the camps get more crowded and desperate

REPLY: Now, sir, I know you're smarter than you're letting on! Surely you know that the governments in charge of those areas could have taken care of the problem themselves many years ago. But they have repeatedly refused to allow these camps to be dismantled & the people assimilated. But of course you knew that, now didn't you?


ORIG: It is a world that seems to so many to be cruel, painful and unjust.

REPLY: That's why they all want to come here, where life isn't "cruel, painful & unjust."

But just what is the road to national prosperity? In recent years many third world countries have pulled themselves out of poverty. Unless they are oil-rich (only a precious few) the ONLY way ANY COUNTRY has achieved this is by adopting a free market capitalist economy. Communism doesn't work; socialism doesn't work; charity, foreign aid & IMF handouts don't work. Only the free market works. There are no exceptions, never have been & never will be.

So if life is "cruel, painful, & unjust" maybe these countries should try some political & economic reforms....like for instance: basic freedom, some banking regulation, an honest stock market & a favorable investment climate. In other words, they should become like America!

It's been nice chatting, sir. And give my warmest regards to the Peasants of The Forest.....a very fine group of people I'm sure.

Re: Are ethics teachable View Thread
Posted by D.Thomas on 8/30/01 at 10:43


There is no information to help people find a good doctor. There were some analogies about cars and houses, but each of those products have excellent information available and other help before making a purchase. In my opinion, the only viable info for a consumer with doctors is word-of-mouth. And if you don’t know anybody with PF, it is going to be a random process.

Also, ethics is only one part of the equation. In my opinion it comes down to how overall satisfied I am with my doctor. His/her ethics affects only a certain part of my overall perception, but so do other things that have been mentioned on this thread – knowledge, trust, patient focused, evaluation, etc. I could map out the whole interaction and experience that a patient goes through and have them rate their satisfaction with each process.

I think what surprises me the most is how “good” companies regulate themselves vs. doctors. For example, I work for quite a few companies that do customer satisfaction measurement. Most of these companies base their employee compensation on how satisfied their customers have been. Some franchises also base their license requirements on customer satisfaction.

All I can say is it would be interesting to do a real study and find out how patients with PF are satisfied with their doctors.

Almost anyone can "prescribe" a foot orthotic and that can be a problem. It is not a unique problem. My wife is an audiologist, highly trained in hearing devices. Most states allow lay people to dispense hearing aids--all you have to do is buy a "franchise." Miracle Ear and Beltone franchises are generally owned by lay persons who become "hearing aid dispensers."

The best thing that the consumer can do is to see a practitioner in which a postion of trust is established. Getting a true prescription device involves getting a service. It is really the service that is important, not really the device itself. There is a biomechanical exam involved, measurements, casting, the lab work and finally dispensation. Dispensation of the orthotic is NOT the final step in the process. The effect of the device needs to be monitored closely and modified accordingly to ensure that the appropriate therapeutic effect is occurring. Podiatrists and pedorthists tend to have the most training in the area of foot orthotics. There is an organization of orthotic labs, self-regulating, that maintains high standards--PFOLA-- Prescription Foot Orthotic Lab Association.

My field trip to the Good Feet Store was strictly to find out the characters involved, what they were selling, and what was their game.
I never had any intention of purchasing the orthotics they offered.

I found out what every other prospective shopper should. At best it's a money making deal for the owners. This is some Southern Calf. Pods way to mass market orthotics to gullible people. People with hurting feet. The market areas (his franchises) which they don't want to call franchises because royalities are not directly paid are quickly being purchased by other Pods, Chiropractors, and others to cure the world of foot pain.

This is just another get rich scheme at the expense of hurting people.

I took a field trip today to "The Good Feet Store" that just opened its doors 2 weeks ago. For those of you who are not familiar with The Good Feet Store, it is a rather new franchise to sell orthotics. On their web site they say it is not a franchise, no royalities to pay so I guess technically speaking it isn't a franchise, but close to it. These orthotic
stores are popping up all over, about 100 nation wide so far. As I found out at the store they apparently are the brain child of a Podiatrist in Southern California. Those that know about the stores, please correct me if I am wrong, but this is what I was told.

So exactly what are they doing and who are they treating and with what?

The two stores here in town are running blitz style ads in the paper and on the radio telling people that their main orthotic, The Barefoot,
will make your feet conform to the ideal foot shape. It will support the four (4) arches in your foot. Your entire skeletal system will become more correctly realigned there by imporve stability and balance. You'll improve your posture and gain from 1/2 to 2 inches in height.

I asked the salesman what training he had and he eagerly responded that he had been trained in Southern California for a two week period on how to fit and sell the orthotics and how to run the store. I asked him if he had ever made custom orthotics or if he was a trained certified Pedorthist
and he replied no and asked me what was a Pedorthist.

The fitting for my correct orthotic was with white paper and a stamp pad. I was quickly showed all the pressure points on my feet that the orthotics would immediately correct. Then the orthotics came out. There was about 6 different ones made of flexible and hard plastic. Supposedly they came in sizes, however, from what I saw in the back room my guess is that the sizes they speak about are very limited. Their entire stock area was tiny.

They really push the balance part of their sales pitch showing people if they stand on the orthotic they can not be pushed off balance. At best, a wonderful sales trick. I listened as they told an 80 something year old woman that her balance problems would greatly improve if she purchased the orthotics for $219.95. The woman could not stand without assistance. Their orthotics range in price from $59.95 to the top $219.95.

I have to say in their favor they do not mess with anyone who is diabetic,
Arthritic, Under doctors Care, suffered broken bones, has any recent
surgeries, or any skin disorders. There is a big sign if you have any of these things don't stay.

My advice, BUY BE WHERE. I've often said "Sore Feet = Big Money" and in this case I stand by this. These salesman haven't got a clue about feet.
They simply repeat the garble they were told to learn at their sales meeting in Southern California. I have no doubt that these franchises will make money for their owners because the public is so gullible. Who out there wouldn't rather cut out the doctors visit and get the cure for sore feet directly from the mall?

Anyone expecting to get professional medical advice at this store should know the facts up front and be aware of what they are buying. My opinion is this store is an upscale Dr. Scholls counter with a twist. They have a new story to tell in order to market over the counter orthotics.

This store get 2 stars if your looking for an investment, and 0 stars if your looking for a cure.

I have said before that we are considering ESWT. However, she is feeling better each day and as long as this continues there is no need for it. She continues to exercise, stretch, physical therapy etc.

This is your quote from a previous post.

"Rest - but of course you must know this: you're trying to heal an injury, so stay off your feet as much as you can. You don't say what your job is - if it's one that requires you to be on your feet a lot, that in itself is contributing to your problems."

This is exactly what my wife is doing. Your right we are trying to heal an injury. ESWT injures the area again, so why risk it if she is improving? No one fully knows the long term effects of treating PF with multiple 20,000 volt shocks.

Money was never the main concern.

Our main concern is that surgery isn't reversible. Once its completed you can't go back so it should be done only as a last option. Total rest was never considered neither. We just didn't want full body weight on her feet while she's walking around for awhile. We are going to try vitamins, paks, exercises, gradual weight increase, massages, etc.

And she does stand on her feet but it's controlled. We know that the shots didn't help while her conditioned got worse. So why not try it.

And for now she seems to be getting better each day.

I 100% agree with you.

My wife from day one has continued stretching and exercises with her feet. She only wants to avoid 100% weight from walking for a short period of time. Her pain is gone and she stands on her feet, stretching, and exercising them. Again, she only wanted to avoid "all weight" walking for 1 to 2 months. Since her good foot was becoming sore it would have been nice to have a wheelchair temporarly ....... NOT to use all the time but just to give her feet a break when she had to move around the house alot or go shopping in stores with no aids.

We never considered her just setting in the chair!

Her progress was going so good it just shocked me to hear that surgery was the next option.

The wheelchair is only for 1 to 2 months max.

Her approach to resting the foot within the last two months has been 98 percent effective. While doing the shots for two years, her condition continued to get worse. The shots were the only treatment that was done and it didn't work.

Resting the foot (with stretching) isn't considered an conventional treatment?

We live in northern Mississippi and my wife has been seeing a foot doctor in Southave MS for two years now for PF. The doctor has been injecting her right foot monthly which provides only temporary relief and her overall condition is getting worse.

Two months ago he recommending ESWT surgery. My wife was concerned about surgery and decided that she would like to try totally resting her foot first. So for two months she has been crawling, crutching, and hopping while experimenting with what helps her foot.

At the beginning her foot was numb, cold, and swollen. After experimenting with ice packs etc., she found that light stretching and rubbing worked best. Just in the last few weeks her foot looks 100% normal, warm, with no (0%) pain. She is starting to put just a little weight on it. She wants to continue this approach for several more months if needed.

PROBLEM: Her good foot is starting to bother her some. But not to bad so he wants to totally rest it before it gets injured. No Problem, we will just get a wheelchair for 2 months so we called the doctor. He refuses to authorize a wheelchair and says she needs surgery and it's the only way to correct the problem. He said once she walks on her foot again the pain will return.

Her foot hasn't felt this good for 2 years and she wants to continue to rest the foot and gradually add weight. We will agree to surgery if this doesn't work but we would like to try it. But we need the doctor to approve for a wheelchair for several months because crawling isn't good either.

Doesn't anyone know where to purchase a low priced wheelchair since the doctor is refusing to OK one?

Is the doctor right? Are we unreasonalbe?

I personally like foam boxes and plaster strips to make a cast of the foot. They both give great detail of the foot. I don't care to much for the computer systems. Others really like them. I know that there are some here that like the computer milling method, so guys, don't kill me. I like to go with a more personal touch. To me, there is nothing like making the orthotic from scratch myself. I think people like that as well.

I don't want to sound like sour grapes, but there is a new orthopedic footwear chain that moved within 3 miles of our office that use the computer system. They are not C.Peds. They are just people that have had a couple of hours of training, then went out and bought a franchise. I have spoken with them myself, and they are clueless about biomechanics of the foot.

Sorry for the rant. Those are the methods I like and trust. You have to relize that it all comes down to who makes the orthosis, and what materials they use.

Good luck. If you have any other questions, please let us know.

Hi, salina.
Sorry to hear about your cramping. It's the pits! I had it for about three months straight--I did not have one full night's sleep, and I was pretty miserable. Even while wearing night splints, my feet would go into spasm,esp. my right foot, and I would literally scream out loud. As far as rating my pain from one to ten, at the onset of my affliction, I would have to rate it a ten. I must admit, and I'm not boasting in any way, but I've been told by various docs that I have a very high threshold for pain. I've had multiple corticosteroid injections in various locations, and local surgeries without any difficulty(my doc was funny as he tried to conceal the injections, but commented that I was so "stoic and did not flinch"). No, I am not a masochist. It's just that the injections were "cake" compared to the pain I had been suffering.
I am now oscillating on the pain rating of a range of 5-8. This is not so bad, because about 8mos. ago when I'd get home from work all I could do was pack my feet in ice bags, keep my pain to myself(my husband was and is so sick of my situation),cry to myself, take 1200mg of Ibuprofen, rub ibuprofen cream on my feet, strap my night splints on , and go to bed.
Now, my routine is a bit different. Ive weaned myself off the night splints(sometimes I put them on if i'm having a really bad day), take 600-800mg IB and rub IB cream before I go to bed. I still use ice, again, if I have a really bad day. I'm trying to become more active as I used to be, although there are definite limitaitions.
One must listen to his/her body. I didn't and I paid a terrible price,and am still paying. I've come to terms with the idea that my condition seems to have taken the chronic road. "Chronic" meaning there really isn't a cure. Coping is the key. I'm better. And I hope that yourself and others will be,too. -dfeet Result number: 186

Hi Judy, if you're still home. I second the no-orthotics route, it's definitely helping my own progress too. It's been about a month now, I think. I wear Birks most of the time, and some of the time my hiking boots with no orthotics. They have enough arch in them for me, whereas every pair of orthotics -- after many months of trying myriad styles -- hit my arch wrong or were too high. I have "normal" arches -- so to Sue S., I wouldn't dare say if you should try this with a flat arch. But it seems if you found a shoe with enough arch to make your foot comfortable, it might be worth a try.

Until a week ago, I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever get rid of the soreness I feel in the AM. The Dr. said it would take 6 months to a year to heal from my 2/3 release/bone spur removal. I have had MAJOR relief from how my foot felt before surgery BUT I was disappointed that I still had some soreness. I wanted NO PAIN! My right foot has been fine since 4 treatments of accupuncture but I never had the accupuncturist do my surgeried foot as I wanted to see just how much the surgery would help (must be a masochist?)
This past week, upon stepping on the floor in the AM, waiting with gritted teeth to experience the soreness I have been getting for over 10 years, I was pleasantly surprised! Just a slight discomfort! Maybe I am getting better! I am still going to hold off on the accupuncture because I want to KNOW if the surgery works. I still ice every night and have started to use the hand held massager with heat and magnets I bought at GNC.

Hello: I am very happy to have found this site. I have a tremendous catechism of problems with my health due to bone spurs. I developed one in my right foot 10 years ago and had surgery. I was not able to stay off of it (I had to work!!) as I should have, and as a consequence, I have nerve damage in that foot, going to the toes (the little one has no feeling in the back), and a constant sense of "pulling" to which I've become accustomed. Then I developed a similar spur on the other foot, but used a $2 plastic heel cup and the spur went away. However, for whatever reasons, I've continued to gain weight and have developed, over the last 4-5 years, bone spurs in the backs of my heels which hurt constantly. The more I've stayed off my feet, the heavier I've gotten, and now I not only have this terrible pains in the backs of my heels (which doctors have told me are inoperable, since they'd have to cut through my achilles tendon, and I might not be able to walk at all!!), but arthritis in my knees and hands.

I hurt all over and don't really know what to do any more. I've become a complete vegetarian (that was easy) and want to become vegan, in the hopes I can lose weight, and I do floor exercises and lift weight and ride a bike, but I'm still fat, limp, and am growing worse by the day. I'm very worried.

I've 49, 6'3" and weight in at about 280. What should I do? I've tried glucosomate, but nothing really helps.
