The role of orthoses in the treatment of foot problems
from Podiatry Management
The etiology of the vast majority of podiatric complaints is abnormal foot structure with resulting mechanical imbalance. The inequitable distribution of force adversely affects function as the foot develops increased concentrations of compression (pressure), tension (tearing), and shearing (rubbing) forces in various areas related to the structural fault. These forces are most frequently associated with excessive pronation.
