Heel Pads Inappropriate for long term use?

I have a pair of the Viscoheels, had a cortisone shot, performed stretching excercises, used ice, etc. and have had about 95% improvment in my heel pain in 2 weeks. My Dr. said using the heel inserts for more than 2-3 months could cause other foot problems. He recommended $400 custom full length orthodics.

Do you agree with this? Is there a less expensive long term solution for foot pads?

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.
