Hard Orthotics

Posted by Rich on 11/04/03 at 08:36 (136326)

My pod made me a pair of orthotics back in August. They are hard. Periodically the arch in my good foot aches - I think from the orthotics. I think both feet would really benefit from a softer feel. Has anyone used an gel or soft insert ON TOP of hard orthotics? The PT place I go to makes soft orthotics. I am wondering if something like that would be better for me. Has anyone tried them?

When I make hard plastic orthotics, I always use a top cover of good cushion. I would ask the doc if this is possible for him to do.
