Sure!: But what you cut can't be un-cut, so either be extremely careful and cut less than you think you need to (because you can always cut more), or better still, go back to your foot doctor and get it done right! ...Read more

Wanted to know where can I find a foot doctor that can could you help me with a reasonable price for orthotics?

Cost of orthotics: Custom orthotics are generally more expensive. They tend to cost between $300-$400. The benefit is they last longer than over the counter orthotics, which may cost $30-$40 but you must replace them somewhat often to maintain effectiveness. So the cost ends up being roughly equal if you think of it that way. Some doctors allow you to pay a little at a time (like no interest financing). ...Read more

The transition through the teen years will give them a larger frame and muscle mass, requiring them to carry a relatively larger mass on their feet.At this point, symptoms may become evident & show the need for orthotics. I have seen little benefit over several decades in pretreating. ...Read more

Orthotics: You want to make sure you were educated on using orthotics. You should slowly work yourself into them. One hour of use the first day and gradually increase your use everyday. If that does not help, the orthotics might have not been made correctly. They may have to be adjusted. Lastly, orthotics aren't made for everyone. Sometimes other more aggressive modalities are necessary such as surgery. ...Read more
