Heel Pain: Try to Beat the Wear Pattern on these Orthotic Devices
The science of reading shoe inserts for pressure analysis can be as mysterious as reading the tea leaves for some, but not for experienced forensic podiatrists like myself. When this patient stated she was having heel pain, and found great relief from some orthotic devices she only wore occasionally, the wear pattern on the top covers shows the whole story. This may be a fitting blog post for the day the new Sherlock Holmes movie comes out. Can you see where the wear is? Probably more important, can you see the heels have had excellent pressure relief? Elementary my dear Watson!!
