I have got my first pair of orthotics a week ago, they were for over pronation and leg length discrepency and the dreaded plantar fasciitis. I have been wearing for 6 hours a day (desk job) and feel like i am now over compensating, its like I am now supinating but is that just because i am walking in a totally different way?
My legs feel super tired and my shins even feel a bit tight also is this normal in the break in phase?
Cant help but think they are going to be a waste of time, the last thing POD said was "orthotics are not for everyone"
Any views comments would be appreciated, I feel like they are not doing me any good and I am a bit disappointed to say the least. I got them when I was in the UK (expat) and cannot get back to have any adjustments made so I either stick with them as they are or give them up. Feel tightness round my outer knee as I type this also.
PS: I havent ran in them yet, intend to wait a while yet as the gold ball like lumps on my arches need to feel better before I would even consider it.
