Sorry, but what the hell? Why so many surgeries?

Why so many surgeries?

These joint-restructuring operations often fail and need to be redone. Medical massage therapists see this all the time. The attachments between bone and muscle are re-routed, the stresses are redirected and the body isn’t designed to function as usual with these changes.

I have some foot anomalies. There are surgical corrections on offer. They may work for some, but they can cause secondary problems. Until I am absolutely immobilized, I will not choose surgery and even then, I may not.

I have seen poor results from supposedly simple bunion corrections. Just from a mechanical standpoint, you can see the issues that can result.

Because someone else (we) were paying for them.
