Recent publication supports orthotic use with plantar faciitis foot pain reduction

Published November 2017

Dr. D’Amico is a Professor and Former Chair of the Division of Orthopedic Sciences at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. 

It has been my experience as well as that of a significant number of colleagues that custom foot orthotic insoles with appropriate modifications are indicated and a mainstay in the conservative management of proximal plantar fasciitis of mechanical origin. Dr Scherer states that properly casted and fabricated custom orthotic insoles can produce more than 80 percent relief from proximal plantar fasciitis, which in turn confirms the pathology to be primarily mechanical in nature.
