JM Orthotics?

Posted by eric on 4/22/05 at 13:36 (173541)

Any thoughts on this company's products?

Any good podiatrists in NYC that might sell these? I hyperpronate, but only notice significant pain when skating and skiing. Podiatrist recommended $500 custom orthotics, would prefer a lower cost solution.

I practice and live in westchester and I don't know any podiatrists in NYC. I'm sorry you weren't able to get any help Elyse. I do know some good Active Release Technique doctors that might be able to help you. Let me know if I can be of any assitance.

If you are looking for an insert that could help foot pain try the power step inserts. You can review and buy them from this site. I have no finanical involvement with these inserts or this site. I have used this insert for years and find them very helpful. They have a two year breakage backing and 30 money back arrangement if unhappy.

Elyse:
It is a big city so there must be some good ones. I would try a systematic approach. For example, call the NY College of Podiatric Medicine and ask to speak to one of the professors that teaches biomechanics and get their recommendations or they may even have a private practice.
