ABC SPECIAL NEWS REPORT – Ties To Pain

We’ve all heard of the damaging affects of backpacks and our children’s health. But how often do parents worry about their children’s feet?

One Chicago health professional says it’s time they started.

He calls it pronation syndrome. A Chicago chiropractor says more children are dealing with back pain today because of this problem.

The culprit: shoes that are trendy and in demand. It’s not just the shoes, but also how America’s kids are wearing them.

Whatever you call them, hiphop shoes, gym shoes or athletic shoes, it’s all about the style. Many times, children wear the shoes with the laces untied.
But can that fashion trend literally be a pain in the back?

Chiropractor James Stoxen thinks so. He says some gym shoes were never meant to be worn more than 3 to 4 hours at a time. Add to the fact that many youngsters don’t even tie them and Stoxen says that just makes things worse.

“So what’s happening is the side support mechanism is no longer useful to keep the heel on center and they don’t tie it so the heel just rolls,” said James Stoxen, D.C., Chiropractor “Team Doctors”

Stoxen calls that excessive rolling of the heel pronation syndrome. He says it results in a domino effect that can leave children with major back pain.

“This heel will collapse and then all the other bones in the feet will collapse and all the other bones will collapse causing stress and strain on the knee. Cracking knees aching legs low back pain,” said Stoxen.

Safe Range, Pronation, Supination

Daniel Arguello, 13, says that’s what sent him to see Stoxen. He’s a national champion taekwondo competitor and just assumed his back pain was coming from all of his kicks and fancy moves.

“My lower back really hurt. I was in a lot of pain. I though it would go away but it just stayed there,” said Daniel Arguello, chiropractic patient.

He says he later discovered it was his shoes. After giving Daniel chiropractic therapy, Stoxen put him in shoes with a better heel and ankle support. Now Daniel says the pain is gone.
There is no scientific evidence pronation syndrome really exists. But Stoxen believes it’s the basis for a huge percentage of back pain not only in children but in many adults today– leading to herniated discs and more.

School College podiatrist, Stephanie Wu says she hasn’t seen an increase in kids with back pain —but says –most kids may not notice it right away and won’t feel the effects until later in life.
“In theory if you think about it the interconnection of the joints is very much possible that foot problems would relate to lower back problems,” said Stephanie Wu, DPM, podiatrist, School/Rosalind Franklin Univ.

So, what’s a parent to do? Here are some suggestions:

  1. First make sure you’re child ties their shoes.
  2. Check the fit – not to big and not too small. The sides of the shoes in the heel should be stiff to bend offering heel support from the site.
  3. Don’t buy shoes with steel islets as the laces slip on these.

PRESENTATION: Foot Pronation, How a Simple Biomechanics Dysfunction Accelerates Aging, Bangkok, Thailand, 2005 from Dr. James Stoxen DC on Vimeo.

Dr James Stoxen DC lecturing to the delegates

The Second Annual Bangkok Anti-Aging Conference took place at the Bumrungrad Hospital Complex  February 24-27 2005. An official scientific educational program co-supported by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), the event drew hundreds of physicians from Asia and Oceania attending as program delegates. The host venue, Bumrungrad Hospital Complex, is a state-of-the-art facility and the leading internationally accredited hospital in Asia.

Many westerners get their surgeries performed there because doctors educated in the United States or other highly qualified hospital teaching institutions perform the medical procedures. It is a very popular hospital for the elite of Asia.

Over 400 delegates from around the world attended the medical conference. They were eager to learn from the numerous world-renowned experts in the anti-aging medical specialties. This important conference included distinguished faculty from around the world and offered an opportunity to provide valuable information on anti-aging concepts to the regional medical community, health and wellness professionals, and selected public. It was an honor to be invited to speak at such an important medical conference especially since Dr Stoxen was the first and only chiropractor to ever speak at this conference.

“Human Spring Approach”

Dr Stoxen opened the program with some basic background on how simple changes in biomechanics can cause destructive arthritic forces in the kinematic chain. At one point he asked for a volunteer from the audience who had non-traumatic unilateral knee pain. He stated that without the patient telling him what side the knee pain was on, he would be able to detect what side the pain was after performing some simple biomechanical tests.

Trendellenburg Test:

The first test was a modified trendelenburgs test, which showed that the patient had unilateral weakness in the kinematic chain, which is usually more prominent on the side of the knee chondromalacia. In this photo you see the patient (a doctor who was in the audience) has his right foot externally rotated to compensate for the weakness on the opposite side causing balance to be compromised.

Kinematic Chain Evaluation:

In this examination Dr Stoxen is evaluating the regions of the kinematic chain of the patient to determine if and where the patterns of spasticity, subluxation and weakness were. In this case Dr Stoxen is palpating the tensor fascia latae for spasticity. He did Clarks Test and other tests, which determine what the state of the knee joint is.

Dr James Stoxen’s Conclusion:

“It is possible to predict where the patient will more likely have pain before the patient has the pain. These areas of preloaded tension on the human spring mechanism are predictable based on the pattern of movement in the gait evaluation.  The next step is to back up what is noted in the gait evaluation by examining for painful muscle tension in the muscles which are in this pattern.  More clinical studies must be done to determine the accuracy of this examination approach.

“Early detection and prevention is the essence of what anti-aging medicine is all about. That is what is called the paradigm shift from disease based medicine which is treating a patients arthritis or medical problem when the patient presents with symptoms or with anti-aging medicine we detect risk factors and areas which are more at risk for disease and intervene before symptoms or the disease state has a chance to manifest itself.”

Miguel Hernandez Takes Lessons to Heart, Wants Rematch!

CHICAGO, IL—Popular Chicago boxer and Illinois State Middleweight Champion, “Macho” Miguel Hernandez, is upset. In his last fight, he made some mistakes. In hopes of clearing those up, he would like to have a rematch that was promised to him at the conclusion of the bout.

His prior opponent was Shay Mobley. In their fight on January 14th, Mobley proved to be the better man; he landed more cleanly and with greater effect, hurting Hernandez several times and appeared on the cusp of a stoppage victory on an occasion or two. By comparison, Hernandez appeared uncharacteristically flat. He struggled to get his punches off effectively.

At the conclusion of their bout, Mobley promised a rematch. Now, he’s talking about a tune-up bout first.

Reflecting on this disappointing bout, Hernandez spoke at length about the bout, what he learned from it and where he wants to go from here.

Fast forward to February 9th, 2005. Almost a month later, Hernandez is more philosophical about the bout. Here then are his thoughts, as shared with us.

On how he’s feeling:

MIGUEL HERNANDEZ: I’m okay, Man.

On rumors that Hernandez’ running around town, selling tickets, and distracting activities affected his preparations and his focus negatively:

MH: This is a business. I know what I have to do; I train hard. I’m responsible for the tickets that I have, I have to collect the money. That had nothing to do with the fight. If something was wrong with me, and I stepped into the ring, [that’s boxing] and he was a better man that day. I don’t’ want to take nothing away from Shay. I just want him to respect his word.

On reports that a virus and a rib injury affected his fight versus Shay Mobley:

MH: I shouldn’t have fought that day. [But] I don’t want to make any excuses. I wanted a rematch the next match, but they wanted to do something different, and I’m upset.

Once again that’s making excuses for the fight; I was sick, there was a virus going around. I was sparring and I got hit in the rib. But that had nothing to do with it! I stepped into the ring. I really don’t want to talk about it. Had I won the fight, that never would have come up. So, I don’t want to bring that up. I respect anybody that fights.

I don’t want to make any excuses. The people who know how I fight know my punches had no snap on it.

On any deviations in training for his last bout versus Mobley compared to other bouts:

MH: I cheated a little bit—we all cheat a little, sometimes; I wasn’t’ going to [Dr.] Stoxen’s that much [to do core abdominal work]. It helps me, so, like my father says, if it ain’t broke, don’t’ fix it. I should have stayed with it. The one prior to this fight, against Chris Holt [10-3-0 and 7 KO’s at the time, whom Hernandez stopped in the fourth round], I did. It’s hard work, as Stoxen says, you’ve got to make a schedule, you have to have an appointment set; you have to run in the morning. If I stick with it, it will come out good.

On Changes he’s making this time around:

MH: I’ve been working out working my ass off with him doing my exercises with him. You don’t realize how much that helps, that strengthening and conditioning! Dr. Stoxen is a good help and a good friend. My training my running, it stays the same, it’s just more strengthening and conditioning.

On his efforts to secure a rematch with Shay Mobley through Mobley’s promoter, Octavius James [of One in a Million Boxing, Inc.]:

MH: After the fight, he [Mobley] said, Miguel whenever you want to fight, I’ll do it again. I just thank you for the opportunity. Then, [later on] he says he wants a tune-up fight in March!

I read something in Cyber Boxing Zone that said he dominated me. If I was so easy, why not fight me again; why would you need a tune-up fight?

I have great respect for Octavius and Shay. I didn’t’ have anything to gain from that fight. If I would have beat him, I had nothing to gain; he had everything to gain. I fought some tough guys that I beat. Not to take away anything from Shay.

I talked with him [Octavius] on the phone. I said if I gave them an opportunity, I wanted a rematch. They said they would talk to Shay.

He won the fight, yes he did and I’m glad they gave him the decision. That shows that there’s no favoritism. But lets’ do it again with more at stake; he’s fighting for a belt. I even made a deal with Octavius: I said, I’ve talked with him plenty of times and I’ve never been cocky. I said that after I win the fight, because I know I will, he can carry the belt for me back to the locker room. They never called me back.

I’m going to fight April 8th; it’s not going to be when he wants’ to fight me; there’s still time to fight me; he doesn’t have to fight March 25th.

I know that rematch with [Chris] Troupe never happened. But this [loss with Shay Mobley] is the only loss I have in my mind. I was man enough to let him [Mobley] fight me on TV and I didn’t have to fight him, but I did. I would like the rematch like he said, and I would like it to be my next fight.

On if Mobley does not accept an April 8th rematch:

MH: I wish him nothing but the best. As a fighter from Chicago, I wish nothing but the best for a fighter from Chicago. This last weekend, I was at my brothers wedding in Florida and it hurt me thatDavid Diaz lost. I never want to fight somebody from Chicago unless someone moves up. I get along with these guys from Chicago. I have three kids. We’re not making nothing out of it.

My thing is that I’m a man and if I give my word, it’s as a man. And Shay Mobley came up to me as a man and gave me his word for a rematch. He said if I wanted a rematch, he would give me a rematch. If we fight again it will benefit both of us; if he wins he gets the title (Illinois State Title).

If it comes down the line and it’s going to benefit me, then great. I’m looking to move up. He moved up because of his fight with me. There are a lot of fighters out there with losses; look at [Ricardo] Mayorga, it doesn’t mean anything. I’ll move on.

On whether a rematch with Mobley is a good move for his career:

MH: He doesn’t seem to think it is. You know, I just feel a rematch would be good. He said he would give a rematch and I would like a rematch. I think I’ll come in the same or better

condition as he did and it will be a better fight. Last time he beat me easy, maybe this time he’ll knock me out. I just don’t see why he won’t take it.

On his next fight:

MH: April 8th fight, I’ve got a couple names; I’m going to work it out with my promoter and matchmaker [Editor's note: Hernandez is promoted by Dominic Pesoli/8 Count Productions ]. They told me forget about Shay—he’s fighting March 25th, if he gets cut or hurt, then it’s off. I’ve got to fight. We’ll see what happens.

I wish all the Chicago fighters the best. [For example] Carlos Andre or Andole’—I don’t know how to spell it–he just won the title at junior middleweight. To me, he’s a stable mate; we train together at Windy City.

On how his training is coming along:

MH: Just the basics, lots of running, lots of shadow boxing, bag work, pad work and I get sparring in March. February is mostly cardio and March is when sparring starts up.

With Stoxen, I’m doing core ab work lot of reps at a fast pace. It does work! My manager, Ronny Garcia has been able to help me focus more on my workouts.

After the fight with Shay Mobley, some people said a lot of crazy things, like they were wondering what was wrong with me, [knowing] that that’s not the way I fight.

We’ll see April 8th. That’s where I get to prove myself in the ring. You’ve got to let your hands do the talking. Whoever I fight on April 8th, they’ll have their hands full because I’m going in there to win.
