Persistent instep pain despite orthotics

After years of instep pain while ice- and inline-skating (or skiing) I visited a podiatrist. Utrasound showed focal inflammatory patches along the plantar ligament and orthotics were prescribed.

It's been a year and I still can only skate a few laps without feeling the burning. When I run I still get shin splints too (in college I actually developed a stress fracture after playing soccer on shin splints). I'm extremely frusterated because I love to speedskate and skate inline marathons.

Are there any other possible conditions besides fallen arches?

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
