REVIEWS OF DR. SCHULER
Panama City Podiatrist writes of Causes of Fibromyalgia
There are many different theories about what causes the widespread condition known as “Fibromyalgia”—from your toe length to psychological stress in the workplace. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in your muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on your body where slight pressure causes pain” ). Two percent of Americans suffer from the condition, and women are much more likely to develop the disorder than men. Fibromyalgia symptoms often begin after a physical or emotional trauma, but in many cases there appears to be no specific triggering event.
Physical constitution as a cause of fibromyalgia is one theory advanced by podiatrist Dr. Burton S. Schuler, author of Why You Really Hurt: It All Starts in the Foot ). After seeing countless patients in his Panama City, Florida office, who are diagnosed with fibromyalgia and also have a short first metatarsal bone (Morton”s Toe), Dr. Schuler recommends treating your short toe bone with a simple toe pad to help reduce stress to the foot that can reverberate throughout the body http://whyyoureallyhurt.com/home/#tp). Since many of these same patients are also women, Dr. Schuler also recommends foregoing heels and other uncomfortable footwear in favor of shoes that accommodate natural foot structure. Dr Schuler is also a Diplomate of online ruletti the Academy of Pain Management for the past 20 years.
Another reason given for fibromyalgia diagnosis is workplace bullying. Emotional trauma abounds in the workplace. A recent study conducted by the Workplace Bullying Institute suggests a strong connection between those suffering from workplace bullying and the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. .
The Workplace Bullying Institute website states that “Stressors, aspects of the work environment and the behavior of people working there, can generate stress. Stress is a biological human response. It is physiological and real, not just imagined. Low-level stress may be necessary to compel people to act. However, severe stress, which prevents rational, controlled action, has overwhelmingly negative consequences http://www.workplacebullying.org/targets/impact/physical-harm.html).
Given the range of possible causes for fibromyalgia, it is best to cover all of your bases upon diagnosis through consideration of both physical problems—such as Morton”s Toe—and psychological stress, which ultimately has great impact on the body.
