knee pain and orthotics

I read all the questions and answers you have online.

I have had alot of knee pain for two months which was diagnosed as cartilidge damage. No injury caused this. Just like I suddenly started having heel pain about 9 mos. ago and got diagnosed with Plantar Fascitis - no injury. I got orthotics which have helped alot. I'm wondering if the orthotics are causing the knee trouble.
I think I need to have my feet and legs and gait analyzed, but I don't know who to go to, and/or how to find a good doctor who does this kind of work.
I live in Chicago. Can you give me any names or can you give me the right kinds of questions to ask.

Thanks very much for your help,
Colette Nicolay

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
