Orthotic Toolbox – Pain When Toeing Off

Orthotic Adjustment for Pain When Toeing Off

Problem

Similar to our previous post, this lovely customer has been doing some more walking to prevent that dreaded Covid15 and noticed a specific stabbing pain when toeing off during a good walk. This pain wasn’t evident during the initial phases of a jaunt around the neighborhood and starts around 15 minutes into the exercise.

Material

For both pieces we used a 55 durometer multi-cork as the base support material for this orthotic is Poron, a soft and responsive material. Both locations should translate well into the foot for proper correction due to the material composition.

Solution

With our softer and more responsive #orthotic we originally engineered there was too much compression during the gait process from mid-stance to toe-off. To increase the contour and firmness of the orthotic, we “brought the arch forward” with a traditional Scaphoid Pad. This customer is also an A6 foot type with a fair amount of supinatory pressure and heel-strike, we added the Lateral Heel Bar as a guiding system.
