New patients frequently arrive at my office with custom molded prescription foot orthotics complaining that they still have the same pain as before the devices were prescribed! (the orthotics didn't help!)
When I evaluate the devices they tend to be under-corrected.

So, what is the best way to accommodate a prominent plantar fascia? If your patient has a prominent fascial band on exam it is important to take note of this structure in order to offload it so your patients doesn't irritate it on the device. Side affects of an irritated fascia include: pain and nodule (fibroma) formation.

I frequently see patients in the office who participate in cleated and skating sports and plan on fitting their orthotic devices into the shoe. It is very important to, at least, measure the inside heel width of the shoe and include that on the prescription. And, many labs prefer the shoe being mailed in with the foot molds.

I have recently been asked the question about whether or not folks can go from a motion control shoe to the neutral shoe type once they have their functional foot orthotics in hand. I explain to these patients that orthotics do not make for a better or more stable shoe. A functional foot orthotic plus a neutral athletic shoe does not equal a stability or motion control shoe.

Several great lectures I attended at The Western Podiatry Conference were delivered by Dr. Bouche and Dr. Kirby. They are both lecturing at the Learning in the Vineyards Seminar this October! Don't forget to register! They are great speakers and teachers. You are certain to leave their talks with new pearls to apply right away in the office.
