TTS and chiropractorsPosted by marie on 5/28/03 at 09:48 (120129)
I know a chiropractor who saids he treats alot of TTS patients. Although it is certainly not a cure he told me that he was trained and specializes in foot disorders and knew alot about TTS. He does a what he calls a realignment of the foot. He told me that his patients have been very happy with the results. He also makes custom orthotics specifically for folks who have bilateral TTS. Has anyone here ever gone to a Chiroprator for treatment of TTS? This was the first doctor I have talked too that knew more about TTS than most of the doctors I have been to.
His wife is a massage theropist and she suggested a cream that she uses on her TTS clients called bio freeze. Does anyone here use it? She saids that she has had great results with her TTS clients.

Marie, I really,like chiropractors and had mine adjust my foot quite a few times with no luck. he was only vaguely familiar with TTS and did say that my foot was collapsed. That is amazing this chiro is so knowledgable And he even makes orthoditics for TTS sufferers! That is good news. If you have read any of the past messages you will notice that a lot of people think their orhotics made their TTS worse me included, mine were the hard kind. I think chiros make soft supports that are much beeter for you. I would try it. As for the bio freeze, I also tried it, but didnt notice a change at all. it is like be gay but cold. it is good for muscle aches. I also tried something called CT cream that is suppose to help TTS but again that didnt help. But I would give anything a try I even did accupuncture which helped for while, but I finally resorted to sugery.

I would be curious to know what specific design features he is including in his orthotics for treating TTS.

Hi Laurie, I'm new to this message board and very glad I found it after having TTS for several years. I've tried several of the same remedies and have been told by all my doctors that the success rate for surgery is poor. Has it been a success for your? I hope so! Linda

Linda, welcome to the board! I cant say yet if my surgery is a succcess I knew I about the success rate, but I thought why not, what do I have to lose? I had good insurance at the time. I did not find the board until after my surgery so a lot of posts scared me and reading about other peoples surgery posts. I still have the symptoms like someone giving my electric shock in the side of my ankle, but the shocking pain is not as severe and not as constant and DR said this is normal. could be up to a year. You have to be very careful with recovery I a am 6 mo post op and jinxed myself a few weeks ago by saying how well I was doing, well I was out gardening on a little slope and my ankle did not like it at all, so needless to say I am having a constant dull pain and tingling (Yuk) but I have had these setbacks before since the surgery so I am hoping this calms down soon and that I really didnt do any thing permanent I hope you can make good progress with your Chiro since he is so informative aoubt TTS. And and make a good orthodic!

i'm seeing one now. he's treating me with 'active release technique (ART), digging into my feet to break up scar tissue and stretching my legs and hips to new lenghts (pun intended). been doing it about 2 weeks, figure i need a few months at it to really see if this is the answer.
