Every year thousands of people who have burning feet are diagnosed with a condition known as Peripheral Neuropathies as the cause of their problem. Many of them are prescribed powerful drugs such as Lyrica, Neurontin, or Cymbalta to treat these neuropathies. But according to Dr. Burton S. Schuler, often these people are misdiagnosed and are taking these drugs unnecessarily and are getting the wrong treatment. Schuler says many of these people don't have neuropathies, but just have a common foot problem known as a Morton's Toe
that can also cause burning feet.
In a new article
on the Why You Really Hurt website Dr. Schuler explains how the average physician has not been trained about the Morton's Toe and many of them just assume that their patient's burning feet is due to the serious neuropathies and not the easily treated Morton's Toe.
What is a Morton's Toe?
In the 1920's and 1930"s Dr. Dudley J. Morton of Yale Medical School and Columbia Medical School wrote that a problem with the 1st metatarsal bone, known as a Morton's Toe could be the reason for most foot problems. Dr. Janet Travel, White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, and Professor Emeritus of Medicine at George Washington University took this concept further by writing and teaching that the Morton's Toe could cause pain all over your body. She wrote and taught for four decades that a "Morton's Toe could cause, back, hip, knee, leg foot and ankles problems. In the new book Why You Really Hurt: It All Starts In The Foot
also shows how it can also cause arthritis, fibromyalgia, sleep disturbances, and TMJ. The good news is that all of these problems can be treated with a simple pad that costs about two to three dollars.
The book was written by Dr. Burton S. Schuler. It is published by the La Luz Press, Inc, and is distributed national by the Cardinal Publishing Group of Indianapolis, In. It has foreign book distributors' in Germany, U.K., Netherlands, Canada, South Africa, and India.
