HyProCure for TaloTarsal Displacement

If you or someone you know suffers from Partial Talotarsal Dislocation, you need to look into HyProCure, the minimally invasive solution for Talotarsal Displacement. If you’ve had this condition, you know how painful it can be, and how many complications can arise. Everything from fallen arches to heel spurs can result from Talotarsal Displacement, and generally speaking, it negatively impacts your way of life. However, there is hope. Thanks to HyProCure, long-term relief is finally possible.

WHAT CAUSES TALOTARSAL DISLOCATION?

The most common cause of Partial Talotarsal Dislocation is when the ankle bone displaces off of its normal position on the hind foot bones. In other words, it’s caused when the balance of the ankle bone is lost off of the heel bone. This displacement creates an abnormal inward rotation of the ankle bone while the rest of the foot suffers from an outward rotation. The overall effect is an acute imbalance of the body’s weight distribution.

Additionally, this displacement can be either static or dynamic. Static displacement means that the ankle bone is permanently out of place, while dynamic displacement means that with no weight on the foot, the alignment of ankle to the heel is normal. Both are serious, but static displacement is considered to be more severe and causes worse symptoms.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?

Partial Talotarsal Dislocation causes a variety of symptoms, most of them leading to other symptoms of their own. Because of this, Talotarsal Displacement is often considered to be a “root problem” that needs to be corrected before other problems can be fixed.

Typical symptoms of the foot are fallen arches (flat feet), bunions, hammertoes, ingrown toenails, Morton’s neuroma, Plantar fascilitis, and Haglund’s deformity. Symptoms of the ankle can include Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, and Chronic ankle sprains. And lastly, there can be a myriad of symptoms to the legs, hip, pelvis, and back.

Common Conditions and Symptoms Resulting from Talotarsal Displacement:

  • Heel Pain
  • Overpronation / Hyperpronation
  • Bunions
  • Heel Spurs
  • Tendon and Ligament Strain
  • Knee, Hip, and Back Pain
  • Neck and shoulder Complications

This is not something that will reverse itself with time, exercise, or physical therapy. You will not grow out of it. It is an internal problem and requires an internal solution.

WHAT IS HYPROCURE?

HyProCure is an internal stabilization device that is placed inside the foot within the collapsing space. The HyProCure device acts as a stent that keeps the space in its normal, open position. Immediately after the procedure, the ankle bones and hindfoot bones are positioned into proper alignment.

 

HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE WORK?

The HyproCure procedure is minimally invasive and is performed while you are under a local anesthesia or, at the most, twilight sedation. The HyproCure device is inserted through a very small incision and is slid right into place. The tissues in the collapsing space will attach to the device during the healing process and hold it in place.

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER HYPROCURE?

No surgical procedure is risk free, complications can always arise. Lengthy surgical procedures can likely result in scar tissue. There is no guarantee with major surgery that the pain won’t return. Also, as with any surgery, you could be required for overnight observation, which is not only costly, but a big inconvenience. Generally, recovery time for invasive surgery is longer, and you are commonly restricted from daily activity for at least a month. The whole situation is physically uncomfortable, and you are taking an unnecessary risk.

Since HyproCure is minimally invasive, most complications are considerably lessened when compared to major surgery. For the first three to five days after the procedure, you’ll need to limit your walking around, but afterwards you can gradually increase your activity level.
