Hi there, I have just been to see a sports injury physio about a niggle I have in my left hip and also regular pulled calf muscles. Looking at my gait, he told me that I over pronated and that orthotics would be of great benefit to me. Apparently the over pronation is causing the hip problem in the form of Piri Formis, and is also causing the calf muscles to pull. I am more than willing to try out custom made orthotics as advised, but was wondering if anyone could give me a heads up on how much I would pay for a pair, how long they last and what type of shoes would I need to run in ? At present I run in support shoes, but would I need neutral shoes as the orthotics would be correcting my gait ? Any advice would be great.
