Several years after my injury, I started to realize that I was starting to lose the function and coordination in my damaged left foot. Fortunately, I had better advice this time around and worked with a chiropractor and physiotherapist who guided me through the proper rehabilitation process. For over a year I worked daily on re-building the arch and mechanics of my foot. The results were great, I watched as my arch returned to near normal; my balance and stability considerably improved. However, I like most people, spend a lot of time on hard surfaces, and even with my new and improved foot, I started to notice that not only would I suffer from Plantar Fasciitis but my knee would also start to swell. This is when I was first introduced to custom orthotics.
