Do mod root orthotics cause hallux limitus?

    I recently started working with a podiatrist who does not use mod root style orthotics or d filler modifications due to fear or causing hallux limitus.
    This is not something that I have heard before and am wondering if this is a current idea or an old disproved theory.
    Thoughts?

    Anything that jams up the first ray and prevents first ray plantarflexion has a theoretical risk of increasing the risk for hallux limitus.

    The so called 'modified' root type orthotic design does not do this if it is prescribed, designed and made properly.
