PAIN FROM ORTHOTICS

Posted by RACHAEL T. on 5/05/04 at 10:39 (150074)

Elyse....I had pain from my orthotics - first, I wore uncomfortably the hard 3/4 plastics from Pod. ~ Then, I wore a supposedly 'semi-rigid' product that in time, created more problems.....now, & since 12/20th/03, I am wearing SDOs from Dr. Kiper. They've been a plus for me, & I think they've helped in my healing process. Good luck....& stick to telling your pod that the orth. are hurting - & have him adjust, adjust, & re-adjust!!!

thanks Rachel, I have a call into my podiatrist and will take the orthotics back to him again and again. I told him originally that they hurt my arches and said that I might be one of those people with tissues that are soft, Duh? It is sooo annoying. Can you run with the SDO's? I am reading the website and will consider it. I am also going to try the Powerstep as they are over the counter and worth a try.
