Effects of foot orthoses: How important is the practitioner?
from Gait & Posture via ScienceDirect
Foot orthoses are commonly used in the treatment of numerous lower limb problems, pains and injuries. Whilst many studies report their positive effects, and most practitioners would confirm those findings, the available information appears to be anecdotal. As such, the exact mechanisms in which FO work are not fully understood. Therefore, a need exists to study the influence of the inter-practitioner variability in the assessment of orthoses performance.
