Slimmer fitting shoes present a real problem for clinicians attempting to control foot posture and treat painful symptoms. It is important to recognise that many patients are unable or unwilling to compromise on this issue; due to work or social concerns. It is imperative for clinicians to be able to offer some orthotic control in these circumstances despite having to sacrifice some extent of control.
Even if tighter fitting fashionable shoes are worn, it is still desirable to control pronation. If the foot is left with no control, symptoms will often become more severe. The recessed medial heel post within the TRIO Slim Fit design offers this control without risking irritation of the skin within the shoe. In addition the forefoot contouring provides a stabilising effect upon the forefoot joints and reduces cramping pain. This provides an effective treatment for Metatarsalgia.
