Treating Heel Pain: What Type of Orthotic To Start With

In the article below from my friends at La Trobe University in Australia, they discuss the use of custom or over the counter inserts for acute heel pain. I could not agree more, that if there is no other reason but heel pain to use the orthotic devices, it is best to start with over the counter inserts. I like over the counter inserts, like Sole and Powerstep (and there are others), that I can customize if needed. The typical modifications include softening the heel area, and adjusting the arch higher or lower based on patient tolerance.
