Re: Best type of orthotics?

(Note: I'm resubmitting this, since I may have clicked on the wrong followup post.)
Thanks for responding. Yes, I've been wearing the orthotics for my arthritis (and fallen arches in the right foot--which also had the neuroma surgery. I think the surgeon recommended orthotics for that reason, plus he prescribed a softer material on the balls/toes portion for my post-surgery neuroma *and* for a neuroma I have on my left foot--to give me more metatarsal support. I had x-rays taken last week, which show that I'm walking wrong on my right foot. It's not known how long this has been going on, so he prescribed adding a lateral support in my right orthotic.
I had been wearing 3/4-length hard leather orthotics for 20+ years, for the arthritis. Then I got the neuroma, and was switched by two podiatrists to soft, full-length ones. What is the reason you don't always recommend orthotics for post-neuroma surgery patients? Also, what type of orthotics do you recommend for me, with arthritis + post-surgery neuroma in one foot and a neuroma in the other? Thanks.
