Dr. Popovitz in Newsday Regarding Shoe Inserts

“Orthopedists always thought that these inserts wouldn’t make much of a difference,” said Dr. Leon Popovitz, an orthopedic surgeon at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. “It’s good this study ultimately┬áproved it.”

Once the arthritis develops to the point where there is uneven pressure in the joint, or uneven wearing in the joint, using shoe inserts or a brace on the knee to balance the pressure will not make a difference, Popovitz said.
