    This means that the strength of the muscles in the orthotic only group got stronger! (they got even stronger in the orthotic + exercise group).

    We now have 3 studies that have looked at muscle strength and the use of foot orthoses. Two showed the muscles got stronger and one showed that there was no difference (ie they did not get weaker).

    Ironically, the two studies that showed they got stronger were not done by Podiatrists. The one that showed no difference was done by a Podiatrist!
