If a set of orthotics are repeatedly made incorrectly can this cause plantars fasciitis?. I have had two sets of orthotics made by a orthotic and prosthetic lab with supposed certified prosthetist. They are never correct according to my podiatrist. They have been modified at least 6 times and the lab will not refund the money. I also had recent neuroma surgery and I am still getting phantom pain.

i doubt that the orthotics alone were the culprit, they could have contributed if improperly constructed

My podiatrist said they were mde improperly. What else could contribute? Overuse?. On my feet too much in health care for 20+ years, or weight gain?.
