Use orthotic 4 overpronation+bunion used 2 wear aa width shoe age+bunin med width now.Heel backof heel&ankle still narrow should wear custom made shoe?

Gel heel liner: There are so many shapes and sizes of feet that shoe manufacturers cannot possibly make shoes for every need. What i would recommend you do is find a shoe that fits your toes and then purchase a gel heel liner that goes into the back of the shoe to help snug the shoe around the heel. You can search online for gel heel liners and you will likely find a company that sells them.N. ...Read more

1-must wear straight shoe lasts for overpronation & flat feet? 2-can sneakers have mesh and leather tops?

??: Not so much a straight last as much as a last of some kind / cheaper shoes may look ok but if you can bend the shoe easily at the heel-forefoot junction then this is not a good shoe for you a good shoe with a last coupled with a good otc or custom made orthotic is the ticket as long as the construction is of reasonable quality what the upper is made from is not too much of an issue. ...Read more

Can 3 screws in my metacarpal set off metal detectors in airports?

Can 3 screws in my metacarpal set off metal detectors in airports?

Possibly: I would not think that 3 small screws in a metacarpal bone would set off metal detectors but they could with the advances in scanning technology at airports. If you have any documentation relating to the surgery you received that could be helpful. If not I am sure they would just use a wand scanner to focus on areas of concern and only your hand should trigger a positive response. ...Read more

Broken fibula & tibia in 99. Leg length discrepancy of 1.5" but only tibia is short. Fibula bowing. Problems feet up. Pursue Taylor spatial frame?

Broken fibula & tibia in 99. Leg length discrepancy of 1.5" but only tibia is short. Fibula bowing. Problems feet up. Pursue Taylor spatial frame?

Other options?: You're 30 and no longer growing, problem won't get worse. A 3/4" heel lift on your shorter leg may resolve most issues. If not, surgery to lengthen the short tibia with external device is possible but results may not be worth the effort to get there. You really need to discuss with orthopedics your current issues with shorter leg and if they will resolve with surgery. ...Read more

Does having a "large frame" mean that their skeleton weighs more than someone with a small frame?
