Shoe Wedging for Knee Pain

Many patients come into orthopedic clinics with knee pain. The exam is quite simple, an MRI ordered, and surgery suggested. I have done extensive work on knee pain and biomechanics. When I first joined the Center For Sports Medicine at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco, I was the only podiatrist. I was called upon daily to design wedges to off weight the injured knee area and allow it time to heal. So, if you have knee pain, seek the advice of a podiatrist, pedorthist, physical therapist to make sure your foot function is not the culprit or a contributing factor.
