Orthotics for Plantar Fasciitis
Foot orthotics are often seen as a front-line treatment for plantar fasciitis. We strongly recommend that most patients with plantar fasciitis try orthotics. There is evidence of their effectiveness and few, if any, negative side effects. They can be prefabricated or customized for a more personal fit.
