Abstract:Background: Degenerative disorders of the foot often are painful
during standing and walking. It is assumed that, because of bone
deformity, callus, and deformity of the plantar pads, the plantar
pressure distribution changes. Prescription of orthopaedic shoes
for patients with degenerative disorders of the foot is based
on the hypothesis that excessive pressure under the foot causes
pain. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of
custom-made orthopaedic shoes, in terms of pressure and pain,
in patients with degenerative disorders of the foot. Additionally,
the relationship between plantar pressure parameters and foot
pain was studied, with special emphasis on second and third
metatarsal heads.
