Summary

We tell patients to support the arch, wear thick-cushioned, motion-controlled running shoes and avoid going barefoot. Does it work? Yes, when you add anti-inflammatories, stretching exercises, cortisone injections, night splints, controlled ankle motion walkers, six to 12 months of recovery and more than $1,000 of patient fees.


“Everyone else is telling me I should be wearing arch supports, running shoes, and not to go barefoot!”

My reply: “Is it working?”
