I have semi custom insoles too, what an epiphany not only for this condition but for improved footwork. Also, I am surprised that the recommendation for yoga does not come up more often on threads like this. Modern day "power yoga" is no longer hippies chanting and meditating, it is for serious and older athletes doing active heated stretch routines and intense cardio which is perfect for tennis conditioning and injury prevention. If you have (almost) any of the ache and pain conditions discussed here regularly I highly recommend a visit to your local hot yoga studio and ask about power yoga and yoga for athletes (using small dumbbell weights). Namaste.
