Could you recommend exercises for someone with 'an increased valgus alignment of the calcaneus' of the right leg. how would one improve this?

You Mean A Flat Foot: This is usually treated with custom shoe inserts ("orthotics") that lift and support the arch. Try some from a local store like Rite-Aid or Walgreens. That might be enough. I've been told that walking in dry sand at the beach helps a little. I've also heard of putting a towel on the floor and grabbing or rolling it up with the toes, but I don't know if any of that helps. ...Read more

What is the estimate amount for fallen arches surgery.My legs are killing me.I need surgery asap african

What is the estimate amount for fallen arches surgery.My legs are killing me.I need surgery asap african

I'm : I'm not sure when you mean by "fallen arches surgery." there are numerous kinds of surgery to correct flat feet, so i'm guessing this is what you have. There are two kinds of flat feet: 1) a flexible flatfoot, which is by far the most common, and 2) peroneal spastic flatfoot, a relatively rare condition that can cause immense pain and disability. For the flexible flatfoot, i assume you tried orthotics, exercises, shoe modifications and even perhaps a course of physical therapy? If not, i would strongly urge you to try one or more conservative treatments before having surgery. Flat foot surgery can be pretty extensive and disabling with up to a year of healing times, casts, screws, pins, etc. It's not something to rush into, and of course, if you want a guarantee, you'll need to go to midas muffler, because there is a known failure rate for surgery. If you have peroneal spastic flatfoot, i assume you've been wearing a leg brace and it's not effective enough. I hope i've provided you with some useful information. Good luck! ...Read more

It varies: If you have a narrow nose, especially if causes breathing difficulties, may be related to external or internal nasal valve collapse. This is usually corrected by a cartilage grafting of the nasal tip to help widen and strengthen this region. Often this is covered by insurance. If you nose is over-projected (pinocchio deformity) then cosmetic reduction of the tip will help. Good luck! ...Read more

What is the recovery length after having surgery to straighten a curved spine (kyphosis)?

What is the recovery length after having surgery to straighten a curved spine (kyphosis)?
