Re: Incorrect Orthotics

If I may paraphrase what I think you posted, you believe that the pre-fab orthotics you wore caused you to develop damage to your feet. I posted back, that in order to prove that, double blinded studies would have to be done with an outcome that showed that pre-fab orthotics did or did not cause damage to individuals feet. Truthfully, I can not imagine how that could be studied. I did not indicate however that no studies have been done on pre-fab orthotics in general however. There is a difference.

It might be a good idea for you to get another opinion about your feet from another doctor for further clarification.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
