I have a 40 yr old pt with heel pain.I will be casting him for an orthotic in a few weeks(he is going to Florida).Sincehis pain is in the heel,ifigure i would incorporate a 16 to 18 mm heel cup.I read an article stating that a deeper heel cup is not necessary.Othersalient findings:he has limblength discrepancy(left leg is shorter and that is the symptomatic leg),he has decreased ROM B/L hallux and he has 2 degrees RF valgus.I am going for the deep heelcup.Does anybody have any insights into this?
