Treatment for Foot Nerve Entrapment

"Hi, I’ve been asked to give my story about the situation with my foot pain. As a little girl, which was 60-something years ago, my foot always turned to the right - turned in. I was always getting in trouble for tearing up my shoes and I would tell momma, “I don’t know why it does it. My foot seems to be going the wrong direction!”
I have suffered my entire life with my foot turning in to the right, with that I have had so many health challenges with my body being misaligned. With my body being misaligned, it threw off my back, my shoulders, my neck, I was always having pain because I was always out of line. I spent thousands and tens of thousands of dollars on chiropractors, different podiatrists - I probably have seen ten podiatrists. One of them cut a neuroma out of my foot and seemed to make the problem worse. 
 
I was shopping at the mall over in Universal City and I saw a new sign go up that said “Foot and Ankle Clinic” and in my mind, I thought, “Well, maybe it’s my ankle or my foot or something, maybe somebody new knows something that could fix my foot.” No one had ever been able to make my foot straighten up, so I called and I went and saw Dr. Silvester, and taking a chance - I’ve tried so many, what’s one more? He told me that I had nerve entrapment. The nerve entrapment was causing my foot to lean to the right. 
 
He gave me an injection in my ankle and an injection in my knee on a Thursday. On Sunday morning, when I got up, every bone in my right side popped. I went in total alignment. My foot quit hurting, my knee quit hurting, my back quit hurting and I am 100% free of pain, for probably the first time in my life. I can wear shoes again. I haven’t been able to wear shoes, I would always have to wear flip flops - in the cold of winter, flip flops. I’m just so excited to share my story. I don’t mind at all if anyone wants to contact me for information, I would be more than happy to talk to anybody. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!"
