Going back to the apparently difficult operating and underpaid medical profession, are there any approving statements coming from this erstwhile profession? "Heel lifts can be helpful in stabilizing your feet, redistributing pressure, and also providing an extra tactile input so that your body/brain know exactly where your feet are. Shoe lifts may also be used to right a leg length discrepancy, which can undermine stability and jeopardize balance. Heel lifts are prefabricated or custom produced depending upon your problem and require." My thoughts exactly.
