One more thing...once the soft tissue of the foot starts breaking down, I find that in the early phases, orthotics alone are not enough. I often need to tape my patient's arch, in combination with the orthotics, until most of the pain goes away, then we tape just for sports, then you wean off the tape. It's usually a two to four week process to get to the orthotics alone. I am currently taping my son's arch (he has an accessory navicular bone). I will try to film it and post it on you-tube so perhaps you could learn to tape your own arch.
