Abstract: Plantar fasciitis (PF) heel pain affects up to 10% of the US population and is responsible for more than 600,000 ambulatory care visits annually. Shoe inserts (confusingly referred to as both orthotics and orthoses throughout the literature) are commonly discussed in the treatment of PF pain. Over-the-counter shoe inserts (OTC-SI) cost up to $50.00 and custom-made shoe inserts (CM-SI) cost up to several hundred dollars. Given the cost differences—and the difficulty in getting American insurance companies to help cover them—understanding the evidence behind the use of these 2 treatment modalities is worthwhile.
