knee pain as a result of orthotics

I have had about three cases fo kne pain associated with orthotic use. One in particular was a lady who has heel spur syndrome and plantar fasciitis. She has a moderate/high arch and had a pair of orthotics made out of graphite with a high contoured shape with no cushioning. She siad her knees would hurt after wearing them and this had been going on for years. She came to me with a prescription fo more of an accommodating device, so i used 1/8 pp for flexibility, but some support and a polyurethane heel plug bilateral with a rf post of cloud crepe. She has worn them two weeks and now there is knee pain on the inside of her right knee and pain on the anterior portion of her left knee. What is happening?

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.
