In this video, Dr. John Brummer explains how orthotics can be great for someone suffering with foot, arch or heel discomfort. Modern orthotics aren't what they used to be and thanks to graphite and polypropylene, they are now slim and very light. They can treat ailments such as shin splints, bunions and plantar fasciitis. Orthotics are available at pharmacies, shoe stores and many sports equipment stores. If you need custom orthotics, talk to your doctor.
