I want him to x-ray my knee to see what is really going on in there because all the orthodics in the world probably won't compensate for a knee that is shot. I'll ask if my knee is replaced if he thinks I would walk better. Then maybe a podiotrist will take a look and make a recommendation.
I also started with my orthopedic, and then the podiatrist that they have on staff. Got the custom fit orthotics a few years ago and a new pair last year. I used to have trouble with foot/toe pain while hiking/running or even walking. Not any more - the orthotics seem to have cleared it up - I wear them every day.
