What is next after orthotics??Posted by Paula G. on 3/28/01 at hrmin (042849)
I go back to my podiatrist next week. When I went last week it was as if I were bothering him with my complaints about the orthotics. Seems the left one does not seem to work right...My ankle hurts a lot when I wear it. So, I don't.
Also, I wear night splints but they do not seem to fit right. I wake up and my foot is not flexed at all. What if it is too big..
If not, onto my question.
What is the next step in treatment?? I have used a cane with the orthotics but my husband seems to think I am growing too dependent upon the cane, but it seems to help take weight from the foot.
