The Sexy Toes Contest that was co-sponsored by the Foot & Ankle Center of Illinois and Neuhoff Radio was the talk of the town in June. Radio announcements were blasted over the Neuhoff Media stations in Springfield and Decatur for the past four weeks. Applicants were required to send their Toefie (a self-photo of their toes) to a panel of judges.
Sam Madonia’s interview of Dr. John Sigle on his Sports Radio 1450 AM show also made quite a splash. Dr. Sigle explained that the Sexy Toes Contest would be an excellent way to promote the laser services for toenail fungus and pain therapy and a new nail restoration treatment called KeryFlex. Dr. Sigle told Sam that the new nail restoration service could make his toenails look like they did when he was 16 years old. That’s all it took for Sam to whip his shoes and socks off and put his leg on top of the broadcasting table as he asked Dr. Sigle for an on-the-air house call for his nagging foot problem.
“Here it is Doc. Right here! It’s killing me!” Sam said. Within seconds of looking at Sam’s foot as he laid it on top of the broadcasting table and locating the tender trigger points, Dr. Sigle made an assessment. “It is an intra-substance Achilles Tendon Tear,” he told Sam. Sam seemed a bit shocked when he learned he had a tear and asked if he needed surgery. According to Dr. Sigle, “you don’t need surgery Sam. Most of the time an intra-substance Achilles Tendon Tear is from overuse and can be treated with conservative non-surgical measures like a custom orthotic, over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication, heel raises and stretching.”
Sam was relieved to hear his condition could be improved without surgery.
