For over 40 years every since he decided to  enter the profession of podiatry  in March 1970,   Dr. Burton S. Schuler podiatrist, foot doctor of Panama City Fl, has collected books about the human foot, and related subjects.  After forty three years of collecting he now has over 100 books in his private library the earliest one from 1904.

The name of that book is, Surgical Chiropody, by Charles Kahler, that was published  New York 1904

But Schulers' favorite book is the 1935 The Human Foot by Dr. Dudley  J. Morton,   

This is the book Schuler uses almost every day at his podiatry office to treat his patients. The Human Foot was also the bases of Dr.. Schuler's 2008 book about the Morton's Toe (Long Second Toe) entitled Why You Really Hurt: It All Starts In The Foot,  


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. She felt that the Morton's Toe, was so important that at the age of 89 she made a video tape to teach other physicians about how to recognize it and how to treat it.

Why You Really Hurt: It All Starts in the Foot, tells the story of these two famous physicians and their association with the common, but painful, medical condition known as the Morton's Toe. Millions of people suffer everyday with chronic aches and pains from head to toe and don't know why. Many of them have lost all hope, and believe they will have to live with these pains for the rest of their lives. The book is significant because for the first time in seventy years the public is made aware of the importance of the Morton's Toe, and the fact that could be the real unidentified reason (the "medical missing link") for their unending torments. This book will also show how Morton's Toe can also cause fibromyalgia, arthritis, sleep disturbances (RLS), temporomandibular joint pain, and numerous other problems through out the body The good news is that all of these problems can be treated with a simple pad that costs about two to three dollars. The bad news is that in spite of the fact that two of the most famous doctors of the twentieth century were behind the Morton's Toe, most modern day physicians are not aware of Morton's Toe or of it ability of causing pain all over the body. This book took six years to research and write, but Dr. Schuler feels it was worth it because it should be able to help many people get out of pain. The book is disturbed national by the Cardinal Publishing Group.
