While I have respect for anyone who works towards helping others I often see that even the most well-intentioned practitioners fall into the trap of a fragmented healthcare system that treats conditions as isolated issues without embracing the health of the patient as a whole. A common example is the patient who is seeing a particular doctor for their low back condition, another therapist for their chronic knee pain and then a foot specialist for foot and ankle problems.
What’s rare is to find any practitioner that can look at this constellation of symptoms and see the clear relation. Instead we have a system of “specialists” that tend to become overly myopic and as the saying goes, learn more and more about less and less. With this tunnel vision mentality we often lose sight of the bigger picture where the answer is often sitting in plain sight.
I am discovering that my success in treating plantar fasciitis has actually gained me many fans. Many of these people have struggled through specialist to specialist and from therapy to therapy with no resolution until seeking out my services. In this testimonial we can see that Dawn had actually given up on resolving her foot pain and sought me out for a totally unrelated manner. Nonetheless, by looking at the patient holistically we are able to find alignment issues wherever they exist and correct them and that is often the key to unlocking the “mystery” of foot and ankle pain.
