Over the counter insoles Many patients with foot, arch or heel pain like to try a commercially available shoe insole before seeing a podiatrist. If a patient is having chronic, mild pain, immediately discontinue high impact activities, such as basketball or running, and start wearing a running style shoe. You can pull out the removable insole that came with your running shoes without too much difficulty with your fingers. If they appear worn, and/or you are experiencing mild arch or heel pain, I recommend trying these insoles to see if this improves the symptoms. If the symptoms do not improve withing two weeks, or worsen at any time, do not hesitate to call for any appointment.
