NASCAR Crew Chief Kevin “Bono” Manion Suffers from Gout

Kevin Manion, the current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series crew chief for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing organization, is suffering from a painful condition: gout.

Apparently, Manion has been dealing with the disorder for years now and the pain is sometimes extreme. So extreme that Manion has resorted to cutting holes in the toes of his work shoes.

It seems that Manion was misdiagnosed with turf toe early on, but even after he was diagnosed with gout, he had difficulty accepting the diagnosis. Gout has a certain stigma associated with it that many people have a hard time getting over.

Some people associate the condition with alcoholism or old age, but you don’t have to be elderly or an alcoholic to suffer from gout. It is a fairly common foot problem and is really just a severe form of arthritis.

Gout is most often present in the big toe joint and common symptom is a throbbing pain and swelling in the big toe.

If you believe you are suffering from gout and would like to set up an appointment with our office, you can contact us at 615-220-8788 or at our toll-free number 888-713-0906. You can also request an appointment online.
