I suffer from postural disorders that I believe is cause by a condition known as "Functional Hallux Limitus" - A disorder of the big toe(s) during the gait cycle that prevents normal function and dorsiflexion of the big toe causing strain and pain in the foot and compensations during gait that can affect the entire body.
I have read Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi's "Nature of Amatsu" and I find it very intriguing and relative to what is going on with me.
He discusses Functional Hallux Limitus in this writing.
I am 37 years old and I have been to numerous chiropractors, massage therapists, oestopaths, and foot doctors trying to get to the bottom of this. A so-called chiropractic-neurologist told me that I have a left-brain, right-brain problem probably triggered by a near head-on auto accident I had when I was 25 years old. Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi also discusses left-brain, right-brain stuff as well!
I have been seen by Doctor Dananberg, a foot doctor in the US who recommends orthotics (unsuccessful) and Dr Zatkin, a chiropractor that personally works with George Goodhart, DC. Both Dananberg and Goodhart are referenced by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi in his writing, "Nature of Amatsu" - How ironic is that?
Here is my million-dollar question (yes I think my recovery is worth at least that much-just wish I had 1,000,000). Are therapists located only in England and Ireland or is there anyone trained in the United States or even Russia (where I frequently travel on business), that might be trained in these techniques?????
Can someone out there be kind enough to provide me with some suggestions.
