Re: What type of orthotic is good?

Generally, I evealuate the patient's needs and wants. This includes the type of foot, weight, activity, shoes, willingness to wear the orthotic, and most importantly, the cost.

Some patients can do fine with a pre-fab and others need the custom orthotic. I explain it is similar to reading glasses vs. prescription glasses.

Your doctor would know what would be the best option for your individual foot problem.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
