never used this site to ask advice before so please forgive any foibles.
i have a patient in their mid 20's. very active playing sports most days.
they have a rigid flat foot with approximately 12mm of a leg length difference on the affected foot side.
any advice on ways this could be helped would be appreciated.
when i cast them it was with the foam box with no attempt to put the foot into subtalar neutral.
Re: rifgid flat foot and what type of insole to make
Bilateral knee pain? Medial, lateral, anterior? What makes you think it is related to his foot posture or leg length? Can you tell us what anatomical structures are painful, during what movement or activity etc? How long has the patient had symptoms? What has led to a "leg length difference"? Congenital, acquired/surgical? By the way - impressed at your precision of measurement - how did you manage to narrow it down to 12mm exactly?! Sorry for so many questions but it is impossible to us to try to help without more information.
