WE CAN NOW MEASURE THE PRESSURE AND MOVEMENT OF THE FOOT
Patient case: Woman with pain laterally on right foot, (Morton’s neuroma) pain on compression between Met 3-4 and 4-5. Testing shows that the patient has Functional Hallux Limitus, with weakness in the posterior and anterior Tibilali. The patient is analyzed with Win-Pod from Meidicapteurs, where you see an increased pressure during walking on the lateral side of the foot and increased jerk on the hallux distal phalanx. Gaitline deviates from the midline laterally at the forefoot.
After treatment with Prothe natos method (6 minutes) shows how Gaitline is corrected with less pressure laterally and less pressure under the distal phalanx of the hallux. Functional Hallux Limitus is corrected and works normally.
The following week on return visits, the patents are painless with compression between Met 3-4 and 4-5, the deviation under the foot is corrected, the patient has normal strength on the Tibialis anterior but a slight residual weakness in the Tibialis posterior, which improves after the accompanying Pronatos treatment.
NEW METHOD GIVES OSCAR LINDBERG FASTER COMEBACK

PETER JIHDE TREATED WITH PRONATOS
The reason for the examination was to see that there was no disturbance in the foot that could affect the increased formation of calluses in the sole of the foot.
This is because Peter, as a diabetic, has a greater risk of foot ulcers that arise from the formation of calluses that rupture.
The examination revealed that Peter had Hallux limitus on his right foot and Hallux Rigidus on his left foot. This is a movement restriction in the big toe joint that does not allow the toe to bend normally when walking, there is a higher pressure under the big toe and you change the gait because you can not go over the big toe. When you walk at an angle, it creates calluses on the sole of the foot, and the mechanics of the knee and hip also change.
After 6 minutes of treatment, Peter regained his mobility to a normal level in both toes.
Diabetes can cause damage to the feet through changes in blood vessels and nerves. Nerve damage is the most common complication of the feet. Nerve damage makes it difficult for the person to perceive feeling and pain in the feet. In the long run, there may be problems with feeling small injuries and abrasions on the feet.
Changes in the small and large blood vessels, atherosclerosis increases the risk of vascular damage with decreased circulation in the legs and feet.
It is important to pay attention to redness, swelling, dry skin and calluses to avoid complications.
Now there is research that says that diabetic patients with FHL have an increased risk of foot ulcers leading to amputation. When the big toe has to be amputated, the risk of further amputation and premature death increases by 12%.
Predictors of Diabetic Foot Reulceration beneath the Hallux
“Conclusions. Obesity and the presence of functional hallux limitus increase the probability of developing hallux reulceration in patients with diabetic neuropathy and a history of ulcers.”

SAID ABOUT US
“Second reading with Stretchpower, what a development! Finally back to the softness I had before as a swimming athlete. Now that I have stepped out of the water and trained more running, cycling and strength training in my attempts to become a good triathlon exerciser. During the last run of 7 km, the running step felt much easier and softer. ”
“Hello. Thanks for the treatment Vesa! I had problems in the outside of my knee this spring. I go to the gym often but could no longer do some knee exercises. I have been to naprapath where they did treatment with laser and various knee exercises but nothing has helped. But then Vesa introduced Stretchpower to me and already after the first treatment I noticed results. Went there twice more and now I have not had any more problems with my knee. Now I can continue with floorball without worries. Thank you Vesa! ”
“Thank you for the treatment, what an effect! Got a slight training pain after the treatment, it may be from the crosstraining session I did after the treatment. It was a long time since I felt so soft and light, I will run my first running session after the treatment today. It will be exciting to see what effect it will have. I will return. Thank you Vesa. ”
“Since I have done many long walks in recent years, including Caminon in Spain and Nijmegen in Holland, the outside of my knee, calf and ankle began to ache. I got a statement that it was an unstretched calf muscle, Peroneus, that was the problem. I got the chance to try Stretchpower and already after the first time I felt a noticeable difference. After the second treatment I have better mobility and the pain on the outside of my knee is gone. Thank you Vesa! ”
“For three years I have had problems with one of my feet. A lot of pain when I got up from lying / sitting to standing. So bad that I was close to falling from time to time. Sometimes also pain when walking. After two treatments, the foot is problem-free! Four months ago I had acute problems in the other foot. Very sore, stiff ankle, difficult to get up, walk up stairs and often difficult to walk. After four treatments, I am now pain-free, soft and mobile in the foot and I walk as fast as before. It is only in stairs that it can feel a little tight. Vesa, big and warm thank you for the help I received and receive from you. It has raised my quality of life considerably! ”
“After having problems for several years getting down in a real squat, the problem is finally starting to drop. I always thought that it was my mobility in the legs that was the problem and stretched without results. After 2 weeks, Stretchpower has already given me more results than two years of stretching! The twist I had at the bottom of the squat is now almost completely gone due to increased mobility in the ankle. ”
