Best type of orthotics?

Since being diagnosed with a Morton's neuroma 2 years ago, I was fitted with 2 pairs of orthotics (by 2 different podiatrists). Now 3 months post-op, my foot & ankle surgeon sent me to yet another orthotics place. After 6 weeks of frustration, with the pedorthist not being able to get the adjustments to work, I'm so discouraged. How do we know what orthotics materials are right for our feet? All 3 pairs are different, yet for the *same* foot problems! And insurance won't pay for mine, which are about $200/pr.
P.S. - I also have arthritis in the post-op foot, and had worn orthotics with no major problems for 20+ years. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Worn daily for a few minutes to several hours, the night splint, over time has been clinically proven to reduce the pain and discomfort of plantar fasciitis and other overuse injuries of the lower leg.
