Has anyone ever used any orthotic insoles (off the shelf ones) and, if so, would you recommend them?
I may, ultimately, need to see a foot specialist but am thinking about getting something for the meantime. Apart from pain in the ball of my foot, I get a lot of stiffness in my ankles - not helped after wearing walking boots that pressed into my achilles tendons.
I've stopped wearing the walking boots and am now using sturdy trainers but I'm still finding my ankles very sore and stiff - especially first thing. This isn't great as I'm a dog walker/pet sitter and hobbling about in pain is really getting me down.
