Orthotics bother my ankle; TTS?

Posted by JJC on 7/27/02 at 19:52 (090766)

I have Tarsal Tunnel and PF. I have tried numerous orthotics
(custom and off the shelf) but my heels & arches hurt too much
when I wore them. Some of them were even 'adjusted'. Now the PF
seems to be diminished; I do not have pain in my arches and heel,
but my TTS is still present. I've been wearing my Berkinstocks
the last ~2 weeks and my feet feel great, but my ankles are starting
to kill me. DO you think the Berks are putting my feet back into
alighment (hopefully!) or they are really bad for me/my TTS and I should
quit wearing them???

I would stop the birks right away...flat shoes are sometiems the worst thing for TTS or PF.

Hi Mary

i don't know whether Dr Kiper's liquid silicone orthotics are appropriate for TTS, but they will align & provide functional control. Why don't u call him & lets us all know about SDO & TTS. i wouldn't like to reccommene something i'm not sure about. His # is 800 dr kiper. Please report back.
