Individual Patient Experience
To think I first found you on the internet. I received my orthotics on Thursday, 9/24/09 and have been using it since I woke up Friday morning…While I was hoping for instant relief, I am encouraged after reading all the instruction and explanation included with my order. The orthotic has relieved the pain of my neuroma to the point that I must walk normally for it to be most comfortable. I am experiencing some soreness around the arch of my foot, but that is to be expected and indicates I was correct in ordering the more aggressive treatment. I cannot express how it feels to walk normally after so long, and I am following the instructions to the letter, even wearing them when I get up in the middle of the night. I half-expected for my feet to be too sore this morning to walk after working all day, but to my most pleasant surprise it actually feels a bit better! I half-expected for my feet to be too sore this morning to walk after working all day, but to my most pleasant surprise it actually feels a bit better! I will continue to keep you updated on my progress as requested, but I feel no changes or modifications to my orthotic are necessary at this time. I had an MRI on Friday, and will get the results Tuesday. I am anxious to share my positive experience using your orthotic with my physical therapist and Orthopedist, as both were quite curious about it and asked me to let them know. My Orthopedist said if it were him, he would have tried your treatment before a more invasive treatment, and that there is very little he knows of that provides lasting relief for Morton’s Neuroma, so my find of your website was very encouraging. Thank you very much. It doesn’t seem enough to express my appreciation, but it is all I can offer. Again, thank you, Lianne Valenti
I have been wearing my orthotics for three years now and still love them. At a physical with my new physician last month she mentioned that I had been treated for Morton’s Neuroma (with injections of alcohol) and when I told her that I got relief from orthotics I purchased off the internet she wanted the website for her patients. I sent her your information and hopefully she refers her patients to you because I know that they will get relief from your products. I’m so glad I did the research and found your products because I was told my only option was surgery. Thank you and take care, Jo-Ann Lightbody Theta Orthotics will stop your pain when everything else has failed.
I am the president of my own company and have been very active physically since I played basketball in college. I am training right now for my first Ironman Triathlon in Idaho this June. I have had foot problems for over 15 years and have been wearing orthotics for at least 14 years. Running and walking with pain in my foot has been a normal part of my life for a long time. I have tried every kind of orthotic imaginable. I have gone to reputable sports medicine Orthopedic surgeons and Podiatrists and the only alternative they keep giving me is cortisone, B 12, their orthotics and surgery. I have to keep going back and back and honestly, it sucks. Having a sports science and biomechanics background, surgery is not an option for me because I know my nueroma and heel spurs can easily come back I did a web search for “natural cures for Morton’s Nueroma” and came to your web site. After examining your site I reluctantly decided to order my first pair of your full length premium orthotic. Wow! I can’t believe it. As soon as I started wearing them, I didn’t even feel my nueroma or heel pain. I have been wearing them for about three weeks now and I can’t believe how comfortable they are. I even have a hot spot in my left foot that does not bother me anymore when I go for long runs. It’s improving my running technique big time and I feel like I am so much more balanced in my overall form. I Just ordered my second pair to add another 5 degrees and can’t wait until they come in. I am recommending your orthotic to everyone. Everyone, especially you athletes out there need these. Pay a little extra for the premium ones…you won’t regret it.
I am currently training for a marathon scheduled for Jun 1st, 2008. During my training I discovered that the discomfort I’ve been having on my right foot is a Neuroma. I had always attributed it to perhaps my right foot is bigger than my left and this is something I have to live with. After researching this condition on the web, I stumbled upon Theta Orthotics. At that point I was getting ready to accept the fact that surgery may be the only way towards relief. I ordered the orthotics with skepticism, but after only 7 days of use, I have already noticed a MAJOR improvement. I walked/jogged 11 miles that first week of starting to use the orthotics. No neuroma symptoms. I swear!!! I was so pleased that I phoned Cris (who is absolutely amazing, by the way) in customer service and told her how happy I was. I thought it (Neuroma) was something I just had to live with. I am so thankful that I found www.pcopco.com. The orthotics are well worth every penny! I am telling everyone about it! Thanks so much!

Theta-Orthotics: “They Work!” About 10yrs. ago I was diagnosed with neuroma’s in both feet. Lucky me! The pain was so excruciating that it would stop me cold in my tracks. I could not even drive. The foot doctor’s gave me cortisone shots. The foot doctor’s recommended surgery such as snipping my toes’ nerve and shortening my toes’ bones. Yes, shortening toe bones! “Calling Dr. Frankenstein!”. And, the foot doctor’s said: “There is no guarantee the surgery will work.”. Very depressing. I finally stopped playing and teaching tennis. Tennis was no longer associated with pleasure. The new equation was: Tennis = Extreme Bizarre Foot Pain. But, it was a mysterious pain that would come and go. The pain was not constant. More like a “Jack in a Box” type pain. I did not know when the pain would arrive. All I knew was, eventually the pain would strike after any activity involving pushing off with the toes. This was an important realization. I continued my search to solve my neuroma problem. I found my answer while “surfing the net”. I spotted Dr. Jarrett’s advertisement stating: “Pain Free Neuroma! No Surgery! Guaranteed!”. Immediately after reading Dr. Jarrett’s Theta-Orthotc website I called his office and ordered a pair. After two weeks of wearing Dr. Jarrett’s Theta-Orthotics I was back on a tennis court. Running. Jumping. No problem. They Work! I highly recommend to everyone suffering from neuroma’s to get Dr. Jarrett’s Theta-Orthotics first! Thank You Dr. Jarrett and your Theta-Orthotics! Sincerely and Eternally Grateful, Yorgo Constantine

Recent Theta Orthotic Patients
Dear Dr. Jarrett,
I’m sorry it has taken me a while to contact you after having received my sets of orthotics.
1) Thank you SO MUCH for the third pair–it has been very helpful to move up more gradually. Please let me know if I owe you something additional for that third pair.
2) I started wearing the lowest set on Dec. 17 or so–wore that for two weeks, then started wearing the second set for two weeks; just yesterday I started wearing the third set.
I read your advice about how my shoes should fit so that the orthotics work and found that information VERY helpful! It made me realize the mistakes I’ve been making all my life with shoes!
3) Throughout the process there have been times where it was uncomfortable or even painful, but overall, I would say that I am VERY HAPPY with the results! I know I am not finished yet–and I will need at least 2 more months to be fully comfortable, but I know that it is worth it! Thank you SO MUCH for this wonderful system of orthotics!!
4) Question: Is it alright for me to wear these orthotics also with a shoe that has a 1.5″ heel they are Oxford/lace-up type shoes?
Please know how grateful I am to you! May the Lord bless you!
Sister Jane Dominic
I’ve been wearing the theta-orthotics now for about 2 years. Changed my life. Can’t thank you enough. I was wondering if you could look up on your records to find out my specific numbers for the orthotics that I ordered because I think I’d like to order the Premium size.
I have mostly good days now with my feet. Once in a while they get sore but I’m so grateful to you. You were kind to me on the phone when I first called you and lead my out of the path of surgery and back to walking again mostly pain free.
Let me know how to proceed. Do I need to order on your site and if so, please give me the size, as the numbers that were written on the bottom have worn off.
The best of New Years to you my friend,
Hi Dr. Jarrett,
I just got home from Paris, France, which was a nine hour flight. I was on my feet all but two hours of the flight walking from one end of the Boeing 767 to the other, pulling and pushing a beverage cart weighing over 150 pounds, helping people with luggage, offering water between meal services and picking up trash, not to mention pulling my own luggage all over Charles de Gaulle airport and climbing up and down the ladder to the crew rest area. And the good news is……my feet feel great!
I had begun to think I would have to take an early retirement from the best job in the world but, I’m back on my game and can’t be happier. Thank you SO much!

I cancelled the 2nd cryo appt back on 12/23/2013 and last week
I stepped up to the next correction which is 27 and wow what a difference. I am having long moments of what neuroma did I have, which is extremely surprising.
I was wondering how I can use my danskos with these corrections?
I was even wondering if I should buy the next set of corrections? How do you know how much correction is the perfect amount?
I am so happy to have life back, even if it is slowly but the glimmer of hope is getting bigger daily. Thank you for making insoles to help people to get their lives back.
Theta Orthotic Patients over the last Thirty years.
Hi Brent, just had a nice chat with Chris as I took advantage of your nice end of the year offer. Chris asked me if I would describe how and why I came to order Theta-Orthotics and what my experience has been with them. Like many people I suppose I woke up one day and was greeted by a bolt of pain as my foot hit the floor. Good old plantar fasciitis had come to visit. Again, like most people, I began a long process of trying to find something-anything- to put in my shoes to alleviate the pain, all to no avail. So on to the internet and heel cups, ”custom” orthotics, sleeping boots, and various devices and exercises which promised relief, all to no avail. Next came a prominent athletic orthopedic MD specialist who, to give him full credit, said that it would take 12 to 18 months and gave me a few new exercises. I then found that one of the better athletic shoe manufacturers had shoes specifically for my problem and gave them a try which, although they didn’t resolve the problem, I found to be excellent shoes. I decided to try (Theta-Orthotics), your strange looking orthotics. As we used to say in Latin class, “mirable dictu” ( don’t hold me to the spelling but it means” wonderful to say”). The pain was relieved substantially immediately and has gotten to the point where I would say I have virtually no discomfort in my right foot and only slight discomfort in my left. Other modalities I tried along the way were-shiatsu, painful but little or no help after six or seven visits; acupuncture pleasant but little or no help after about the same number of visits; physical therapy (3 times/wk- 8 weeks) helpful; cold laser therapy- no help at all. I still step out of bed into a pair of slippers with your orthotics in them but I can, and do, walk barefoot across the floor on occasion. Best Wishes Bob English
Dear Dr. Jarrett, I have been suffering from heel spurs and pains in my feet and ankles for more than a year and a half, ever since I was struck by an SUV in a crosswalk. I’ve seen specialists in podiatry & internal medicine, taken NSAIDs and narcotic pain medication, and countless tubes of BenGay – but nothing’s worked. I’ve lost track of the times my wife had to get up in the middle of the night to massage my feet and my calves. I simply could not get back to sleep due to the pain and was totally frustrated, not to mention exhausted from the poor sleep I was getting. My wife (an RN of 26 years) and I were surfing the Net a few months ago, and came across your site for Theta-Orthotics. We checked out your information, talked about the inserts with my doctors (none of whom were overly excited at the time, but said it was up to me if I wanted to buy them.) WOW!!! About a month after wearing the Orthotic inserts constantly (I only took them out when I went to bed), I realized I was sleeping through the night, only rarely needing to take the narcotic pain relievers. I still continue with the NSAIDs as prescribed by my physician. Needless to say, my foot doctor was suitably impressed by how rapidly your shoe inserts had caused the heel spurs to reduce and by the improvement in the overall shape of my foot. I’ve just ordered my next two stages of inserts. For anyone with foot or posture problems who’s reading this and wondering whether Theta-Orthotics is for real- I can assure you it is- and a bargain at any price. For me, purchasing Theta-Orthotics has been some of the best money I’ve ever spent! Thank you, THANK YOU!!! Bruce A. Koval ASA, BSE
Dear Dr. Jarrett,
Your Orthotics are a blessing. I was leery at first about ordering Orthotics over the Internet. When the tray came for the foot impressions, I worried about whether or not this would be enough to ensure a perfect fit. Obviously, the measurements taken were perfect! Bruce has been able to resume his afternoon walks plus, he hasn’t had to wake me up to rub his feet and work out the pain and cramping for almost 5 weeks. It’s wonderful to know he’s sleeping through the night, and even better, I get to sleep through the night, too! I heartily recommend Theta Orthotics to anyone seeking relief from foot problems.

“Thanks for your recheck inquiry. Just so you’ll know, I’m a family doc here in GA. Your orthotics have brought relief to me after years of aching and pain in my right foot and leg. I’m thankful to have found you on the net. My problem began in 1988 when I had a bulging disc causing transient problems with dorsi-flexion and proprioception losses in my right lower extremity esp. at the ankle. I struggled with daily pain in my ankle, gastroc, and hamstrings on the right. PT made an orthotic for me that was some type of high impact plastic and the discomfort decreased, I wore it out after 2 years and didn’t use one for an extended time. Now my aches have been back for 2 years with me trying all sorts of products to no avail. PT had changed suppliers and could not get the same orthotics (the curse of managed care) and none of the products they ordered helped. That’s when I searched the net and found you. Brent, these inserts have been a Godsend. I’m already doing what you suggested , wearing the 25’s in my everyday shoes and the 30 ‘s in my golf and walking shoes, I don’t intend to be without them ever again.” Dr. Ralph Warnock Thomaston, Georgia
Dear Dr. Jarrett,
In February 2005, I was struggling to walk due to the neuroma pain in my right foot and pain in my left hip. Climbing stairs was especially difficult, holding on to the banisters and pulling myself up, one step at a time. With a trip to Switzerland and Germany planned for June and reservations for a week of hiking in the CAnadian rockies in late july, I decided that I needed medical help.
After a week on Motrin, the inflammation was down and the foot pain was less. however, the discomfort had shifted to my stomach and I knew that I did not want to continue with the Motrin as the doctor suggested. While looking for alternatives, I found Theta-Orthotics on the internet and decided to give them a try. In March, I began wearing the 20 orthotics, and by May, I was wearing 30s, my hip-pain had miraculously disappeared and I could walk comfortably. I chose to stay with the 30s and was able to walk a lot each dayh in Europe and hike ibn Canada. After returning home,I moved up to the 35s and then to the 40s and continued to walk regularly.
While in Europe, my husband and I observed groups of people doing fitness walking with walking poles, Having used poles while hiking for years , we were impressed with the idea of using our “hiking sticks” for fitness walking on a daily basis.Now I wear a pedometer and am committed to using my Nordic Walking Poles to walk an average of 10,000 steps each day. Since October 31, 2005 (nearly four months), I have walked 1,192,118 steps, approximately 451 miles, mostly pain free. None of this would have been possible without my Theta-Orthotics. Thank you!
Hello Dr. Jarrett, I am extremely pleased with my inserts and notice a tremendous difference! My neck, shoulders, back, hips and knees all felt like they were “perfectly balanced” like never before. My muscles are more relaxed in my entire body, hence, my flexibility increased instantly. Remember that I told you I have fought slouching my whole life… immediately I did not slouch anymore. I am starting with the 25 degrees. When is it best to move to the 30 and the 35 degrees? Now that I have seen what your orthotics can do for me I know that my wife (Debbie) would benefit even more than I have…. Thanks again for your time, attention and “Praise God” for your tremendous blessed ability, developing these orthotics, and for Him opening the door for me through your web site. David Carson Swanton , OH
I have been wearing your orthotics now for almost 6 years. Even though I wore orthotics since I was a young boy I was in so much pain when I first found your web site that I was considering taking a new job. I started with 25’s which were much more helpful than the orthotics I had been wearing for sure but every time I increased correction I got even more help. My heel and arch pain was gone completely soon after I started wearing the 30’s. When I saw what the 30’s were doing to my posture I took your advice and gradually moved up to the 40’s which I have been wearing for more than 2 years. I never go without them. I work full time in my National Guard unit now and am on my feet more than ever. I tell everyone how thankful I am that I found you. Lately my ex-wife can see how much better I walk and she has agreed that if you can help my poor flat feet it’s time to start my 10 year old son too. Its hard for me to believe that I ever doubted even for a moment. It all seems so simple now. I am sure you must have been inspired when you discovered Theta. I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for me. Sincerely Arlen Spenser
Dear Dr. Jarrett,
Although I have worn your orthotics for only 4 days, I just had to let you how great they are already working. For the past 7 months, I have been suffering with excruciating pain on the outside of my left foot in the cuboid bone area just in front of my heel. Treatments of cortisone injections, medications, and traditional orthotics didn’t have any effect. I have just started using the 25-degree orthotic and from the moment I placed them in my shoes, I felt tremendous relief from the pain! I was hoping for some relief after wearing them for a time, but was totally surprised by this immediate help. In addition to helping my poor left foot, my painful right knee also feels much better, and my back, shoulders, and even my neck feel taller and more supported. Thank you for all of your help, for all of your research to make such wonderful product available, and for patiently answering all of my many questions. I’m lucky that I found you on the Internet! Theresa M Wading River, NY
Hello Dr. Jarrett I received my orthotics yesterday 4-13-06 and started wearing them today < I did as the instructions asked and found that the 15’s work very well in my tennis hoes and dress shoes but I am using the 10’s in my work boots. My work boots are hand mad and fitted for me , they are suppose to have a very good arch support but with the 120’s I am able to walk out with a normal Stride for the first Time in a year! I talked with Chris today at your 1-800 # and we discussed the option of using the “stacking method” as I progress to the different levels of theta and I have decided to use that method Thank you so much for your product it has given me a new hope that I will not always feel like I am 70 yrs old since I am only 54. I am excited about the way my feet feel already. I work 12 hr shifts at a paper mill and spend those 12 hours on concrete floors. I was beginning to think that I would not be able to continue to work here, but just this first night has given me hope. My foot doctor had told me that surgery was the only thing left and he (thank goodness) told me that he did not recommend surgery. But that meant that I would just have to live with the constant pain. well that is enough for now and I will update you as I progress. Hi Dr. Jarrett, I am really pleased with the inserts, It depends on the shoes I’m wearing which PCO’s that I use, but mainly the 25’s. The arch pain has all but gone away other than when I put my shoes on for the first few minutes. I have been going to the golf driving range and hitting around 100 balls with next to no pain at all, which before was really painful. I’m just about ready to try golf again. Like you say on your web site, you really don’t want to wear your shoes without the Orthotics in place. In my case, if I do, it only takes a short time for the pain to return. Thanks for your help. It’s great being almost totally pain free.”Garry Gill Wellington New Zealand
Hello Dr. Jarrett,Scott (my husband) and myself have your orthotics from 1 year (or so?) ago. I love them and wear them all the time. I am curious if you have found the full length orthotics better, or better under certain conditions/situations than the 3/4 length? I wear mine all the time, and I have noticed that when the foot cannot move in the shoe- that it is best. Have you made many changes or found the full lengths better?? Just curious on how your latest developments or adjustments might be …Thanks for your time!! (And your great orthodics). Hello Dr. Jarrett, “>after trying 3 different types of orthotics, multiple cortisone injections, physical therapy, and medications, I was skeptical that anyone could help with the pain that I used to get from my heel spur. I got 25 and 30 degree orthotics and am now wearing the 30’s and virtually pain free at least during the activities that I normally do. I have made such unbelievable progress that I am actually thinking of doing a little running again. It has been over a year since I had to quit, and was wondering about either more correction at 35 degrees or perhaps the new full-length athletic orthotics that I read about. Please get back with your recommendation. Thanks for everything, you can not imagine how glad I am that I was able to avoid surgery, and to actually be thinking of running again is way beyond my expectations.
Dr. Jarrett: Thanks for sending the 15 degree correction. They allowed my blisters to heal while giving some correction. Ran a half marathon last week with the orthotics (20 degree). Only minimal neuroma type discomfort during the race. This in itself is a great improvement. No pyriformis discomfort post race! I often get that after long runs on pavement. On top of these positives, I trained with a group preparing for the Arizona Ironman the week following my half marathon. We calculated something like 275 miles on the bike, 65 on the run , and five swimming for the week. This is by far and away the most mileage I’ve ever done. I was sore, of course, but no soft tissue or deep knee pain. Having had bilateral ACL reconstruction, this is a major positive. I use the orthotics religiously on the bike. Anyway, thought you would appreciate the feedback. I’m still not comfortable with the 25 degrees but will try them in my training as I go along.
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your answering all of my questions and taking the time to help me feel comfortable. I almost never feel my Neuroma any more now that I wear the 25 degree orthotic all the time. Those injections I used to get were very painful and did nothing for very long. Thanks Lya Watkins, Bensalem, PA. THANK YOU
DR. JARRETT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY GOSH, NO PAIN& ONLY AFTER 3 DAYS………….THANK YOU . RODELLA JOHNSTON T IN 1997, I WAS ELECTROCUTED WHILE WORKING AS A CABLE TV DISCONNECTMAN. THERE WAS A TORNADO IN THE BACKGROUND. (ABOUT 20-25 MILES AWAY) I HAD 1 MORE POLE TO CLIMB AND MADE A GROUND AT THE POLE 25 FT. UP. I DIDN’T EVENTHINK MUCH ABOUT IT. THAT WAS THE DECLINE OF MY ENTIRE LIFE. IT STARTED WITH A TINGLE. THEN PAIN, THEN FIRE IN MY FEET. IN NOV. OF 2000 I HAD A TARSAL TUNNEL NERVE REDUCTION OPERATION AND IT MADE THE WHOLE THING WORST. I WENT TO 6 DIFFERENT NUEROLOGISTS, 2 PHYSOCOLOGISTS,2 ORTHOPEDICIC SURGEONS AND 2 PODIATRISTS. ALSO SINCE 2000, 2 DIFFERENT PAIN MANAGEMENTS. AS OF 8/1/2008, I HAD HAD ENOUGH. GOING THROUGH MORPHINE, LORATAB, VALIUM, XANAX, METHADONE, PERCODAN, OXYCODONE, OXYCONTIN, FENTANYL AND OVER 80 KINDS OF NERVE, ANTIDEPRESSANTS, NARCARDICS, ANTI-INFLAMITORIES AND MANY, MANY, MORE. I WAS PUT INTO A TREATMENT CENTER FOR SUICIDE AND DEPRESSION. I WALKED WITH A CANE AND WAS EVEN IN A WHEELCHAIR AT TIMES.NO ONE COULD TELL ME WHAT WAS CAUSING THIS PAIN. MY FEET FELT LIKE THEY WERE IN FRYOLATOR GREASE OR PLUGGED INTO AN ELECTRIC OUTLET FOR 220. I WAS A MESS. AFTER ALL THIS I ALSO LOST EVERYTHING I WORKED FOR. MY CABLE COMPANY, MY HOME, MY SAVINGS,MY BOAT STORAGE, MY FRIENDS , FAMILY, MY FIANC’E AND MANY RENTAL PROPERTIES. AFTER DOCTORS COULDN’T DETERMINE WHAT WAS CAUSING THIS PAIN AND AGONY AND DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO TREAT ME, I GAVE UP. WHEN I ORDERED DR. JARRET’S THERA-ORTHOTICS, THIS WAS JUST ABOUT THE FINAL FOR ME. I NEEDED RELIEF. NOT FROM THE INTENSE PAIN BUT ALSO FOR MY LOST QUALITY OF MY LIFE. I KNOW MOST PEOPLE CAN NOT IMAGINE WHAT REAL PAIN IS UNTIL THEY HAVE WALKED IN MY SHOES. THERE IS MUCH MORE TO MY STORY, BEFORE AND AFTER. AS SOON AS I GOT MY ORDER I PUT THEM ON AND FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS. I ADMIT AFTER ALL I HAD TRIEDAND GONE THROUGH, I HAD LITTLE HOPE OF ANYTHING WORKING TO GIVE ME SOME RELIEF. TODAY IS NOVEMBER 3, 2008. AND THIS TREATMENT IS THE ONLY RELIEF IV’E EVER HAD. THE PAIN IS 70% GONE, THE BURN IS 70% GONE AND THE TINGLING AND ELECTRICAL FEELING IS 60% GONE. IT HAS BEEN OVER 3 MONTHS AND MY QUALITY OF LIFE IS COMING BACK TO ME. I NO LONGER FEEL HOPELESS OR ALONE. I NO LONGER FEEL WORTHLESS OR SECLUDE MYSELF IN THE WORLD. EVEN THOUGH I LOST MY ENTIRE FORTUNE AND MY POSSESSIONS, IT DOESN’T BOTHER ME. AFTER 11 YEARS OF HORROR,I HAVE FOUND MYSELF AGAIN. MY CONFIDENCE IS GETTING MUCH BETTER AND MY QUALITY OF LIFE IS BETTER BECAUSE I CAN THINK CLEARLY NOW. I NOW HAVE NEW GOALS AND ACOMMPLISHMENTS.I AM PLANNING TO WRITE MY STORY AS SOON AS I CAN GET TO THE END OF THIS ONE.I HAD GIVEN UP HOPE FOR MYSELF. NOW I KNOW IF DR. JARRET’S ORTHOTICS CAN HELP ME, IT CAN HELP ANYONE. I KNOW SOMEDAY SOON, I CAN BE ME AGAIN. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I DON’T KNOW HOW I COULD EVER THANK YOU. YOU ARE MY HERO. THE TEARS HAVE STOPPED…THE SMILE HAS RETURNED. RESPECTFULLY….TONY KOSOWSKI. (THE REAL CABLE MAN)
Patient Testimonials received in the last few months:
Hi Dr. Jarrett:
Just wanted to update you re: my new orthothotics. I only wore them part time for a few days, went full time, and never went back to the old ones. I love them, still have pains, but having osteoarthritis, feel this is a contributor to them. I am going to try on smaller shoes again. Its amazing how fast my feet are changing.
Hope 2012 will be an awesome year for you and yours. God bless you, Janelle
Dr Jarrett It has been 6 weeks and I have consistently been wearing the 27-5 for more than 2 weeks. I have no arch discomfort. The bruise on my right foot on the bone behind the big toe is slowly healing and becoming less uncomfortable. The toe next to my big toe on my left foot (neuroma) still aches but does not inhibit my activities. I wear the orthodics from early morning to bedtime without a problem.
Dear Dr. Jarrett:
I have been wearing the second set of orthotics. I have a pronounced bunion on my left great toe and the beginnings of one on my rt. great toe. I have a diagnosed Morton’s neuroma of my left foot and possibly the beginning of the same on my rt. foot.I had seen advertisements in mail order catalouges for night time bunion splints in New Zealand.Would such a devise be useful in stretching my great toes into a better position ? If so where would I obtain a set of them ?In addition to wearing the orthotics while awake I have regular acupuncture therapy to the left foot to treat the Morton’s neuroma. At this point in time the discomfort in the Morton’s neuroma has seemed to have subsided.
Hi Dr. Jarrett!
I am interested in taking advantage of your Digital Theta Introduction Promotion. I have worn Theta Orthotics for years and am very happy with them. However, from time-to-time I notice small “twinges” from the neuroma on my right foot. We spoke on the phone a couple months ago. At the time, you had just begun to produce the Digital Thetas. I was intrigued by them and wanted to give them a try. However, you did not yet have all sizes available. You mailed me your recommendations (at that time) which were to try : 1) 70-100-27-5 or 2) 70-100-32-6 when they became available.
You are now running the Promotion and I’m wondering if this might be a good time to give the new Digitals a try? If you would be kind enough to check my medical records and give me a call as to your recommendation, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you, in advance, for your time and trouble.
>Twenty years ago, you treated me for Pes Cavus, with stage 4 urethane orthotics, I currently wear the stage 3 and stage 4 daily. These orthotics have worked well. They are showing some wear. I just placed an order on your website for two more pair of your stage 4 urethane Digital Theta’s Dr D.Edgar Allen M.D. (Intermountain Skin, Cancer and Esthetics center)
Edgar, It has been about 20 years…now that is cost effective medicine. As you know i closed my surgical practice almost 10 years ago. I have been doing full time basic, and clinical research since that time…As a result changes have been made and things look , feel, and function differently… Most important for you is that there is now a forefoot addition, different from yours. This addition is highly functional and requires a gradual adjustment even when you have been wearing my 40 degree standard 3/4 for 20 years.You will note that I made you two different levels of correction in the forefoot, 3.5 and 6, both have the same 37 degrees of rearfoot correction , that you currently wear. 75-110-37-3.5, 75-110-37-6. Additionally these orthotics are now made from Digital not Human contours and designs. Conceptualized 12 years ago all of the technology came together this last year and I just re-tooled my research lab this last month, with my new Digital Theta’s. I would reccommend you try both corrections , but likely begin with the lower for a while then work up to the higher ones in a few weeks or months. Let me know how your do. Dr Jarrett
Dear Dr Jarrett, The 37’s feel fine. Thank you for your good work and the excellent orthotics. Edgar
Dr Jarrett,Thought I would update you. I started the 22’s the end of March..Since 1st of April I’m in them all the time. Terrific! I can walk for miles with no pain at all! I get some pain with work where I am lifting or pushing….Putting more pressure on the balls of my feet, but the walking as far as I want is great. I wonder if I could start running but I don’t want to spoil my progress!! Thanks so much. I will stay with the 22’s unless I hear from you otherwise. Thanks, Renee Dawson
My new Mid Total Control orthotics are working very well. I love the new upper surface material, and my feet are happy! I should have just tried them on without questioning the dimensions! Thanks again for improving my quality of life. I can now hike, bike, and stand with no pain. Linda D.

I am continuing to do well with your product! It has taken a long time for my right foot to heal. We had discussed the treatments I had with prolotherapy and how they were confusing and a disappointment. I have been wearing your orthotics now for over a year and a half and my legs and feet are getting stronger. I am still only wearing Asics Gel Evolution athletic shoes with your orthotics (in the future I will attempt to wear dress shoes again) but am walking faster and for longer periods of time with this combination. I am seeing a body worker that has worked on my foot and hips and neck and have been doing foot exercises now for 2 years. The stronger my foot gets the more I work the upper leg muscles and the entire system from foot to hip and am hoping that I will get full recovery in time. I consistently tell people about your product and hope some ofthem have called you to buy the kit from you to get started.Yes, rubber makes more sense to me for an orthotic–and yes, consumers have become accustomed to plastic and think it is better.But I ask them what do they make the tires for you car from? Would you put plastic on a car tire? Rubber is stronger and more flexible and does not crack under the weight.Thanks again for your time, attention and your invention.Best, Diana Merrill

Shawn Fulford here. I lOVE my new premuim orthotics with the extra stuff at the toe. I can now walk over 4 miles a day without any pain. That’s with two bunions and two past Morton Neuroma failed surgeries. Thank you, thank you!!!! It is truly life-changing to be released from foot pain. Here’s my question: How long do the premium orthotics last? I am on my feet as a teacher all day and probably walk for exercise about 20 miles a week. Also – whatever you did to pad the toe really helps. Somehow my feet put a ton of pressure on my toes. Should I order again using this month’s special or will you have another special later? Thanks again for what you do. It is an answer to prayer. Shaun F.
Hi, Dr. Jarrett, It’s now 5 weeks since I began wearing my first pair of Thetas with the following results: I hardly realize that I have a heel spur, only an occasional twinge of discomfort. No limping anymore when I arise in the middle of the night. In the past two weeks I’ve been walking 30 minutes a session on a Precor orbital type machine with no foot pain. Yesterday I did half an hour on a treadmill and when the walking pace became to fast to be comfortable I switched to a slow jog. All with no pain. First time I’ve jogged in years. I look forward to ordering my next pair. Regards., Steve Solomon
Dear Dr. Jarrett: This email is long overdue. The 1st day that I walked in the 27’s I nearly cried, because I realized that I would not need to file for permanent disability with Social Security and go through years of denials, and appeals. I am wearing the 32’s to work this Wednesday. I find that I can walk as normally as I can with the Morton Neuroma condition that I have with your orthodics.
Doc: Here is my follow-up comments on my experiences with Digital Thetas. When I first put on in the morning I still get that very full feeling in my arch. As the day goes on, I still have the full feeling but it is comfortable and creates no issues. I am now jogging about the same distances as before Digital Theta. No issues.When I walk my feet are aligned perfectly parrallel (straight ahead) whereas before my feet were flaired a little open. My balance is better, my posture is better (stand taller), and generally my overall comfort level has improved.On level surfaces, or near level lies, the thetas have helped my golf. On severe sidehill grades, they have an opposite effect as they make it more difficult to mainthavain balance.The thetas that are have the black lining material pretty much eliminate issues with socks and keeping the theta is place when one puts on their shoe. I am going to order another pair of Digitals that have the black lining material today. Please advise the added price on your $77 deal if this is not spelled out on the website. Steve
Hello , Dr. Jarrett, If you remember, you helped me with the donation of orthotics for my Morton’s Neuroma, the last of which I received from your generosity at the end of 2009. I think of you each and every day as I put on my shoes with the orthotics you provided, and since I have them, I have loudly sung your praises and sent dozens of complaining Morton’s Neuroma people to your website! (Some, even, from different countries!)Today I received your notice about people who might want to participate in your research. Please let me know if I would qualify. I would be most grateful to have the opportunity to be part of your study. Most appreciatively, Bonnie Loren
Hi Dr. Jarrett, I wore my first set of inserts for two weeks and felt ready to move up to the next level, which I did last Thursday. My feet feel more supported and fatigue less easily. I feel no discomfort from the R neuroma. The L neuroma is more noticeable as a lump but not painful. Do I check in with you again in two weeks? If the next level is indicated at that point please let me know how that works in terms of impressions needed, if any, and cost. So far I feel your orthotics are a measurable improvement over what I was using. Thank you, Cynthia B.
Dr Jarrett Thank you for the upgrade. I understand now… When I first started with orthotics, you were still practicing in you office in Ogden, and I jumped in to a very high correction. I was hurting, wanted to feel better quickly, and after talking, you agreed, ordered a higher than usual correction for a first-timer, and I never looked back. So grateful for what your theta orthotics have done for me! I would imagine that you only show one correction for me because the first correction I got was while you were still in open practice and those records are probably gone. The one 70-100-40-0 from 2008 that you show on my records is actually my second pair. I also ordered the little metatarsal piece, but haven’t ever used it. Not sure how to use it in conjunction with my regular orthotic. I can see where your new thetas having the extra correction at the metatarsal would be a benefit… Thanks again. LaDawn P.
Dr Jarrett, I have now reached the 2 week mark with my digital thetas. The orthotics now feel like part of me. With them on, I have a stable, cushioning, supportive addition to my feet. While walking, all the previous discomforts are minimal. My posture has been enhanced as well, since I no longer have to protect the areas that used to be painful by adjusting my balance and gait. If I spend long hours on my feet, the bottoms of my feet feel tired, but nothing like they used to. Thank you for this great new design! Linda Daughters
Dr. Jarrett I emailed you a few weeks ago and asked if I should have myself re-measured for new orthotics since it has been seven years since mylast pair. You felt that wouldn’t be necessary if I wasn’thaving any new symptoms, which I agree. What I didn’t mention toyou (I didn’t put two and two together until now) is that I have been seeing a physical therapist to help with a pinched nerve issue in my neck forthe past few months. He has corrected some muscle imbalances in mybody. I had a high right hip and high left shoulder. The hips are level and the shoulders are almost level as well. Since this correction, I started to have painful symptoms of my neuroma in my left foot. Not being a doctor and/or physical therapist, I assume these corrections have made achange of my neuroma and I think I may need to have new orthotics and newmeasurements. What do you think? I have always loved your orthotics and I have to wear them everyday and all day. I cannot go bare foot anymore. Please let me know what you think. Thanks so much. Sandy A.
Day 7: September 27, 2011Today was a great day for my feet as I wore my digital thetas 14 hours. The arches in both feet are adapting well to the support beneath them. I love the cushioning provided by the premium grade thetas. I am very impressed with these orthotics, and I feel like the new technology has improved my relief from Morton’s Neuroma. Now I’m able to stand for extended periods, walk on hard surfaces, and perform household chores and fitness routines without pain. Thank you, Dr. Jarrett, for allowing me to participate in your research. I will continue with further updates on a weekly basis for the next three weeks. Linda D
Hey doc. It’s Erik Hane. I ordered my first set of orthotics about a year and 4 mo. ago. 5 and 6’s. I am now wearing the premium 7’s. I’ve experience a significant relief and am elated that something worked. I notice with the new control digitally fabricated orthotics that the levels go from 6.5 to 9.5. Is that equivalent to level 6 and 7 or has that changed? Would I benefit more from the Total control 9.5? Thanks
Dr Jarrett, I am pleased to learn Theta’s are moving the way of digital. I started wearing Theta’s about 4 years ago and found they corrected many of my problems. I am still a work in progress and probably will be the rest of my life as I live in an ever changing body. My first order through Theta was 2 pair 3/4 length, one 25 degree the other 30 degree. I soon returned the 25 and replaced it with a 35 degree. So I started out with the 30 degree and soon went to the 35 degree. After about a year I ordered a 35 and a 37 Total Control. After several years of switching between the 35 and 37 Total Controls and doing well I am now wearing the 35 degree full time. This does not mean I will not go back to the 37 at some point, but for now I am settled in with the 35 Total Control. I have noticed that there can be inconsistencies in either a Lt or Rt or one pair to another. My son has found this a well, he has several pair of Theta’s. Now back to the Digital Theta’s, I believe you sent out an email looking for test subjects for the 37 degree. It is temping to ask to be part of the program, sounds like your are only looking for those wearing 37 degrees. I am feeling really comfortable in my 35s at this time, so if you decide to test the 32 degree please let me know. Sincerely, Karen T
Today went very well. I spent much of the day standing in the kitchen. After wearing the digital orthotics all day, I noticed an improvement in the overall comfort level in both feet. There was less irritation on the bottoms of my feet above the arch supports. The brief pain in the left 5th metatarsal bone has disappeared as well. Linda Daughters
Dr Jarrett The inserts you sent me seem to be working!! I started with the 17-4 as instructed. It took at least a week before I noticed any changes, (in fact it seemed to hurt even more at first, but in a different way) and then that pain, and pain in all areas started to lessen. I started the 22-5 pair and the pain has decreased dramaticly. My feet still have pain, swelling and numbness, but I have come a long way. I wore the 17-4 for 2 weeks. I’ve been wearing the 22-5 for 2 weeks. So were do we go from here? Thank you Robert Colbert
