Our user asked: "My orthotics were just adjusted in the last week. Since then, my calves have been SUPER tight and sore. I have stretched them and applied heat, to no avail. Can you give me a suggestion? thanks"
Ask a PT Response: "Have you been weaning yourself into your orthotics? ie. wear for 4 hrs, then 6 hrs, etc.  If they have been adjusted, your body may not be able to handle the adjustment and will take time to get use to."
