In some, progress is easily recognizable, but not in others.

The process to heal Hallux Valgus and other symptoms is dependent on the individual’s condition and previous history.

The process to heal Hallux Valgus is mainly falls into 1 of the 3 following patterns.

Some people want to see dramatic change, but this is not always achievable.

Pattern 1: those who wish to see change on every visit.

Those who wish to see change on every visit.

Those who experience a reduction in their pain relatively quickly.

Pattern 2: those who experience an improvement in their symptoms step by step.

Those who see an improvement in their symptoms and then experience no obvious progress for a given amount of time.  This is then followed again by noticeable improvement.

 

● Those who experience a return or their pain after treatment.

 

In some cases, pain will return the following day or 3 days later.

To begin with some people will experience pain again within a week.

Regular treatment will see a constant improvement in and help maintain overall condition.

If pain doesn’t return within a 3 week interval, it would be considered that you are healed.

Pattern 3: those who see no change during the first few visits, but then suddenly start to see an improvement in their condition.

Those who see no change during the first few visits, but then suddenly start to see an improvement in their condition.

Few people fall into this pattern.  People who have experienced chronic pain for a long period of time or have severe symptoms may fit into this pattern.

 

  These patterns are a rough guide.

It depends on the individual’s work, life style, previous history etc.  If you would like to know about your current condition, we will explain to you before treatment.

Dancers condition may take longer to improve due to the fact that treatment sessions run in parallel with their daily training (their bodies a constantly being put under pressure and have a little time to recover).

  For those with very stiff muscles, those who suffer a relapse or those with serious feet and toe problems, additional sessions maybe required.

Around 60% of clients fall into above (not including regular check ups).

However, we make no guarantees that the number of treatment sessions above will be successful.

  Some people who fail to see any reduction in pain stop taking treatment after 3 to 5 sessions and give up.  However, for those with very stiff muscles, those who suffer a relapse, those with serious feet and toe problems or who exhibit a combination of symptoms, additional sessions maybe required.

In those cases where the toes are deformed, there is swelling of the feet or sufferers have had Hallux Valgus for 10 years or more, anything between 10 and 20 sessions maybe required.

The number of sessions required may differ from case to case.  We make no guarantees that treatment will be successful.
