Good Bye Magic Shoes your time has served me well.
Today is a brand new milestone for me. I have officially said goodbye to my Magic Shoes. Today I am a new person with two brand new arches in my feet thanks to Dr. Rui DeMelo and Stamford Podiatry Group and HyProCure . I endured my entire life with flat feet accompanied by pain in multiple joints and constant back pain. My feet and ankles would literally destroy any brace that wasn’t strong enough to correct its position and then find a flaw in the new brace and destroy that one too. I think I’ve been through 10 generations of ankle braces before finding the proper design.
They say if you want to know where someone has been, just look at their shoes. My feet have stood through 10 hour shifts working in the kitchen, handling Cookie Monster in the Thanksgiving Parade 3 times and even climbed the volcano Mount Etna in Sicily. They have carried my wife through the front door on our wedding night and flew my son through the living room like Superman.
I’m looking forward to no more pain. I’m looking forward to walking on the sand without sneakers and leaving a footprint. I’m looking forward to having defined calf muscles. I’m looking forward to see where my feet will guide me next.
Ankle sprains are caused by an unnatural twisting or force on the ankle bones of the foot, often resulting in one or more ligaments on the outside of the ankle to be stretched or torn. If not properly treated, ankle sprains could develop into long-term problems. Read More...

Diabetes and Your Feet
With a diabetic foot, a wound as small as a blister from wearing a shoe that's too tight can cause a lot of damage. Diabetes decreases blood flow, so injuries are slow to heal. Read More...
Plantar fasciitis (or heel pain) is commonly traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Our practice can evaluate arch pain, and may prescribe customized shoe inserts called orthoses to help alleviate the pain. Read More...
Corns and calluses are protective layers of compacted, dead skin cells. They are caused by repeated friction from skin rubbing against bony areas or against an irregularity in a shoe. Corns ordinarily form on the toes and calluses on the soles of the feet. Read More...
