Whats the best insoles and shoe for plantar fasciitis foot arch pain? Don't have benefits for orthotics so wanting to try a cheaper option first.

Whats the best insoles and shoe for plantar fasciitis foot arch pain? Don't have benefits for orthotics so wanting to try a cheaper option first.

Not so easy.: A very sensible approach. The problem is that the arch support design is really dependent on your foot structure. Without knowing that detail, advice on which support to use is difficult and many times wrong. Some supports are for higher arches and some for lower arches. Some are more flexible than others. Shoes need to have a removable insole so that a better fitting one can be fit. ...Read more

Is there a home treatment for athletes foot?

Is there a home treatment for athletes foot?

Treat and prevent: Athlete's foot is a fungal infection. In addition to using over the counter treatments like creams and sprays, you want to make sure you create an environment that fungus will not want to come back to.

I need fusion of L ankle for arthritis + R foot for tenosynovitis. Should i get both feet done at once or one at a time? In a wheelchair already.

I need fusion of L ankle for arthritis + R foot for tenosynovitis. Should i get both feet done at once or one at a time? In a wheelchair already.

Post-op care: Ankle fusion usually requires the patient to be non-weight bearing and to use wheelchair/crutches for mobility. In planning your post-op, consider your support system and living conditions. How many stairs are in the house? Will there be someone to cook, clean, look after the kids, walk the dogs? Ideally, one foot at a time is the safest to minimize falls/complications. ...Read more

FLAT feet and fallen arch. Is it best to get custom RX orthotics for feet or store bought ones? Please advise. Dr. said no more run at surgeyr risk

Flat feet: Either at first. Try an inexpensive over the counter arch support first. If symptoms improve greatly then should be ok. If symptoms slightly improve then custom orthotics are recommended. Custom inserts are casted from molds of your feet so basically are your inserts only. Over the counter devices are designed to fit everyone. See your local podiatrist ...Read more
