Experts ponder whether Brady will bounce back after foot surgery
Could the Patriots star be suffering from a bunion?
In January, the Patriots' Most Valuable Player, Tom Brady, underwent surgery for a stress fracture in his foot, but news sources report that the football star's ability and dedication to his sport have been showing in recent practices.
"I feel good, good enough to run around here and have fun," said Brady post-surgery, quoted by the Boston Herald. "I'm excited for football season."
According to USA Today, Brady has shown promise in working through aches and pains, as evidenced by his performance in the 2008 season following a knee surgery.
The Foot and Ankle Center of Washington has reported that stress fractures often occur in the metatarsal bone and can be the result of a bunion. Considering that athletes are prone to such foot conditions, it may be that Brady is in need of bunion splints or orthotics.
Correcting a bunion with bunion splints or orthotics may get to the
root of the problem and help the star to avoid any further operations.
