hi i have PF in both feet due to over pronation, ive just started wearing a medial wedge orhodic which i got from pod in hospital!on this site most people recommend a custom made ortodic and in scotts book it mentions a medial wedge orhodic for over pronation. Am not sure if it would be good to go get a custom made ortodic or stick with the medial wedge..

If the orthosis is casted and made correctly, most often the wedge is not needed. the wedge will help align the heel cord in a neutral position. If the orthosis is casted and made correctly, that should provide the proper support.
