Orthotics

Posted by Judy on 5/28/99 at 00:00 (007299)

Went to poditrist the other day really discouraged! She and I get frustrated with one another. She wants to give me cortisone shots, I keep saying 'thanks, but NO thanks.'

She told me to not be discouraged. She feels that I can be pain free with a set of orthotics. She based this on the fact that the pronator wraps keep me fairly pain free. Said that this shows that I need mechanical support.

Just wondering if I should go for them. Insurance doesn't cover (why????) and cost is pretty outrageous - $375.00.

Any advice??
