Re: Best Podiatric Practice

Your podiatrist should measure the length of your legs from a standing and alying down position. There is a limit as to how much heel lift that can be put on the orthotic. After 1/2" I feel that a build up should be added to the shoe.

As far as the polypropylene goes, that is a very commonly used material for orthotics. I can't see what you had made so I will not comment further. If you are having discomfort you must tell your doctor so adjustments or a cushion cover can be added.

Good luck
