Causes of Pain: Mechanical, Inflammatory, and Neurological

My son, wife, and grandson all had lunch today in Paris and went up the Eiffel Tower. I wish them a safe trip home.

     I need your help. I want to use this blog as a way to help mankind. Being a Podiatrist, a foot blog seems appropriate and so I have had 9 good years trying to help. Since my work has required so much of me, my blog suffers as my hour each day as turned to 15 minutes, and usually directly to the patient and not on the blog itself. Please help by letting me know what you want me to write about. After 9 years, I have really only scratched the surface. 
     When you have an injury, especially if it is over 6 months, you must treat the 3 causes of pain since all will probably be present. Mechanically at least try to shift weight a-little. I just wrote a post of 28 ways of changing the mechanics that can help big toe joint pain. Every injury has mechanical changes that can help. Treat the inflammation in the tissues with ice, contrast bathes, and other methods like lotions. And treat neurological pain, possibly due to nerve hypersensitivity that loves to  protect the tissue, with neural flossing, topicals for nerve like Neuro Eze, warmth, etc. I hope this helps and any help you can give me is appreciated.
