Speaker: What's a Hematol? Speaker: Hematol is a deformity, which couldn't be either classified as being flexible or rigid which means that if it's in a trial, it's only flexible and usually these are the tendons that are just a little bit too tight or perhaps their shoes are pressing on the area. They can usually address by either putting something in the shoe that will help straighten it out or a little splint or a little bandage or wearing appropriate shoes, sometimes orthotics can help straighten the area out, by putting pressure in appropriate area. If it's already an over-trial or there's some other deformity or it's been injured and to develop some rigid deformity, which means the bone is actually stiff, it may need to be addressed surgically with a small procedure, which is easily performed.
