    Do I remember correctly – you have explored custom shoe inserts ? And did you have someone look at your shoes at the same time? Since you have been home, are you wearing supportive shoes or slippers/flip flops?

    I took every single pair of shoes in and had a qualified medical shoe guy look at all of them. This was at a local shoe store that had a medical side for working with people with issues. My shoe inserts come from an orthopedic doctor, I walk on a scanner every two years and they are custom made.

    Every single pair of my shoes has had work done on them in addition to the inserts. Extra cookie arch support under my insert, cookie instead of my insert, padding on the tongue, etc. I wear very very supportive shoes, all of them.

    (Did you also get a lift or something for your shoes because of leg length issues, or am I thinking of someone else)?

    My option on chiropractors – the GOOD ONES also have a degree in physical therapy assign major exercises. Just popping someone, for a lot of us, does not permanently correct joint placement.

      You have a good memory! Yes I tried the shoe inserts. They seemed to help some of my issues but then caused my plantar fasciitis flare up REALLY badly. Even with several adjustments it just kept getting worse. So I gave up on that. 🙁 I was really bummed out. I do have a heel lift in one of my shoes because I have one leg shorter.

      I like my chiro. Even though it’s temporary relief. It does help. My massage therapist does regular massage but then she also does the manipulation that you are talking about.
