I use custom made rigid orthotics made by my podiatrist, three quarter length with arch support that seem to work well with support stockings and a good shoe that supports the ankle. My TTS seems to really hurt when I am barefooted at home. They think my TTS is caused by fallen arches which pinches the tarsal tunnel. Carol S
