Some years ago I used the original Orthoheels to cure a painful foot condition, plantar fascitis. Unfortunately, the company handed over production to Scholl, who made them too soft to last long. I stopped using orthotics altogether for a while because of this.
Recently, I developed a severe problem with my achilles tendon - tearing pain and a hard lump on the tendon attachment. I thought I would get some more orthotics and see if they made a difference.
Having used these for around a fortnight, the tendon problem is well on the way to being totally cured. I am pain free and it's healing wonderfully.
These Fit-Feet orthotics are perfectly shaped, and most importantly, NOT TOO SOFT! This means they give proper support for anyone with over-pronation (flat feet or fallen arches included). They are easy to wash and don't soak up water, so are ready to use again straight away after cleaning.
They fit in the back 3/4 of your shoe, leaving enough space for your toes in your usual shoes. They might feel a bit odd for a few days, but you soon get used to them. Once you do, they are great.
I would definitely recommend these as an easy first line treatment for muscular and joint problems of the foot, ankle, knee, hip or back. Having your feet out of alignment can cause all sorts of very painful conditions and this simple product can so simply put things right. Magic!
These are also around a third the price of the originals.
