    Major (for joint instability)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: I wrote the above evaluation on 12.29.2016 and have been wearing my orthotics for about 4 years. They are hard plastic ones that strap on. They are molded to the shape of my foot. I just wanted to say that health insurance paid for most of the cost of the orthotics so the cost was minimal. Less than $25 for both feet.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Advice & Tips: I love my orthotics. I wear them all the time. I recommend wearing a shoe size about 2 sizes bigger than your regular shoe size. My foot pain is all gone now. It took a year or so for all of the pain to go away but now my pain is a thing of the past.
