For those interested in chiropractic care for feet...

Posted by Barbara S. on 7/26/00 at 16:27 (024035)

This is a link to the article that got me thinking about chiro care for my feet - and ended up helping me walk again. I have received E-mail about it and thought that posting it might be helpful. ART is a specific chiropractic therapy designed to break up scar tissue from repetitive stress injuries (like PF). It is a form of myofascial release. This article explains the whole process very well. As I mentioned before, I thought chiropractic care was quackery until I reached the end of my rope with every conservative treatment imaginable. Tie a knot at the end of your rope and hang on! B.

Barbara, I saw Dr. Leahy's brother in San Jose last spring and I totally credit my success to that. Patty

I mentioned earlier as well as a couple of months ago that I benefited greatly from ART. But you may have a hard time finding a local Chiro who does it! I was referred to mine by Dr. Leahy in ...Denver? Someone here has his phone number I think. He's one of two brothers who developed the method.
