Anyone have more success with powersteps versus rigid custom orthotics? Thanks. Amy

Amy, I didn't personally experience this, but my podiatrist said she had clients with hard, ridgid orthotics like I have(from a previous doctor), respond better to the power steps. Her words 'for some people hard orthotics are overkill, and all you need is moderate support which powersteps provide' I didn't find this to be the case, but I'm sure she was sincere. Tina

Thanks for the reply - I have tried three pair of rigid orthotics and have finally come to the conclusion that I can't tolerate them - my pain gets worse. Maybe the powersteps will give me some relief.
