Some 11 years ago, my wife had moulds made of her feet to produce a set of custom orthotics. I think these moulds were made too long ago and no longer accurately reflect the shape of her feet. I think she needs to have a fresh set of measurements made. Am I correct?
If it has been 11 years since your wife has seen her podiatrist, I would highly recommend a consultation. Feet do change size and shape throughout your life. Several factors may contribute to this including weight gain, pregnancy, trauma. A podiatrist should perform a thorough history,physical exam and gait evaluation. Then he/she can recommend the proper orthotic for her. I hope this has been helpful for you. Bryant Tarr D.P.M. www.sudburypodiatry.com www.westfordpodiatry.com
