As a practicing foot specialist with over 30 years of experience treating foot pain, I would like to offer you a few items that I use every day in my practice to help patients with their problem feet and ankles.
One of the most effective ways to treat many foot problems is through the use of orthotics. These are devices that fit into your shoes to redistribute your body weight and change the way you walk. In doing so orthotics are very effective in relieving many types of foot disorders. The difference between orthotics and the arch supports that are sold in supermarkets and drug stores is that orthotics actually redistribute body weight while store bought arch supports just cushion the foot which for many of the problems I treat, just are not enough.
Below are two types of orthotics that I offer. The Superstep orthotic is designed for sneakers, work boots and casual laced shoes. The Redithotic slim 3/4 is designed for men and women who must wear dress shoes on a regular basis but require an orthotic.
Take a look at the full description of each orthotic by clicking on the picture. I discuss the various foot and ankle conditions that each orthotic will help treat. These orthotics are a good alternative to custom made orthotics which are very expensive.

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
