Make Orthotics Full Makes Arch Pronate
Why do they make half orthotics and full orthotics and what is the difference it makes to the foot or arch I pronate?
Foot anatomy: The orthotic shell has to stop behind the metatarsal heads or you wouldn't be able to push off during gait. If the device was well past the metatarsal heads it would break when you walk. The topcover, however, can be on the shell only or full lenght. Many patients like them full length because they stay in place better when in the shoes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Tried going w/o custom orthotics for a day. Could barely walk-arch pain the next day. Sound like plantar fasciitis? I'm diagnosed but don't understand

People with high arches have to pronate when running faster to push off the big toe, otherwise we supinate?
Depends on rigidity: The problem with high arches is that the pressure can be shifted to the later side of the foot and increase stress on both the bony and ligament outs and tendonous structures laterally and lead to injuries such as stress injuries to the fifth metatarsal, perineal tendon injuries and recurrent lateral ankle injuries. Often a runner losses the advantage of a strong big toe push off. Orthotic insole. ...Read more
