Orthotic Arch Height

Dr Huppin discusses a simple, but very important, concept in arch height. I am amazed at how many times I find not correction in this area. However, it is not that simple, since many corrections for supination tend to correct laterally (outside of the foot) and not medially. You should never feel that the shoe and ortho combination makes you unstable to the outside. If your dealing with metatarsal or heel pain, you desperately need weight transfer to the arch. Very crucial say with plantar fasciitis or sesamoid injuries.
