A recent study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine took a look at treatments for a common heel pain called plantar fasciitis. The study found that stretching is often the most effective way to reduce plantar faciitis pain. "It's all about stretching, releasing the tension on your calf and the plantar facia," said Darren Di Iulio, DPM, podiatrist at St. Elizabeth Healthcare.

In the study, researchers discovered in the study that the orthotics work best combined with other treatments such as physical therapy, which teaches you how to stretch. "The second thing that the study showed is that not every patient needs a custom, super-expensive rolls-royce orthotic," Dr. Di Iulio said. "Most can use an over-the-counter orthotic that will help them just as much as the custom orthotic."
