    Claims that shoe insoles relieve back pain are unsupported
    Cushioned shoe inserts may give a break to tired feet, but they aren't likely to relieve back pain, experts say.

    I love that!. Were is the testing? Shouldn't something that important be in the public domain?

    Re: Foot orthoses and backache

    Yet another article in the press which perpetuates terms such as 'overpronation', 'metatarsalgia', 'tendonitis'.... the list goes on.....

    And as for this don't even get me started:
    "Off-the-shelf insoles can help sportsmen and women who have already been diagnosed with overpronation or supination"

    When our patients when they read this sort of sh*t in the newspaper it feels like we are fighting a losing battle sometimes.
