    Hi,
    I'm a pedorthist in Canada and recently received a referral to explore "lift and shift" shoe inserts for a patient with left hemiplegia. The doctor's notes indicate that the patient had requested this treatment.

    This article: http://www.hindawi.com/isrn/rehabilitation/2012/328018/ discusses using a 6mm lift on the non-affected side to equalize weight bearing.

    For this purpose, would a heel lift or full sole insole be best? Has anyone had success with this method?

    Thanks for your help,

    Mike
