I had a patient recently who fractured his foot on the edge of a stair. Meanwhile, apply ice/cold pack 2-3 times per day for 30 minutes at a time, and keep the foot elevated. MRI might be needed if there's no improvement. ...Read more
I am wearing one newer (3 years old) and one older orthotic that my podiatrist had made. I have had severe pain in the foot with the newer orthotic.?
Not the Same.: The orthotics are different enough to effectively cause a change in the foot function in the one with the newer orthotic. This change has stressed the foot and now it is responding. I suppose you have a good reason to be wearing two different orthotics, but this practice is asking for trouble. Have your podiatrist check the newer one and put you on the right road to recovery. ...Read more
