We had this question come in from a ProLab client today: 

I have a question regarding a prescription for the patient. She has b/l bunions with pain sub second. If she likes these orthotics I will be ordering another pair for her. The first pair she wants to fit into flats for work. Do you have any suggestions for sub second pain that would fit into flats?

We had a question come in today from a ProLab client who recently started using the ProLab 3D Digital Foot Scanner.   Here is his question and my answer:   

This scanner is fun to use. With regard to the orthotics - any suggestions for him?  I performed a 1st metatarsal phalangeal joint fusion on the right. I was thinking a proaerobic with a mortons extension.

Also I never had such an interest in orthoses as I do now since I have been using the scanner. Just wanted to see if you had any suggestions on good literature on orthoses.

Thanks again for all your help

We will often have ProLab clients ask us to accommodate for prominent fifth metatarsal base. Rarely, however, do they indicate on the prescription form whether the styloid process is prominent laterally or plantarly. There is a distinct difference in how we would accommodate for these two. If the styloid is prominent plantarly then we would recommend using a sweet spot. If it is prominent laterally then we would recommend adding extra lateral extension at the base of the fifth metatarsal
