At Theta Orthotics, sixty-five percent of our patients have been diagnosed with Morton’s Neuroma and twenty percent have been diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis/Calcaneal Heel Spur Syndrome. Most of the remaining fifteen percent start treatment because of chronic knee pain, back pain, and posture problems.
Many patients have or currently wear some type of orthotics, most have tried other treatments including surgery, and some found us when their physician first recommended prescription orthotics.
The following written testimonials come from all over the world.
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 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 finding 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, Jo-ann
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 neuroma 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 Theta Orthotics.
“The orthotics are well worth every penny! I am telling everyone about it!”
Thank you, Alicia
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 doctors gave me cortisone shots. The foot doctors 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!

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!!
“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 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.
The best of New Years to you my friend,
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 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.
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

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
Maralee R. Koval RN, C ASN, BA-AM
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.”

Dr. Ralph Warnock Thomaston
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
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.
It’s 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
Theresa M. Wading
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
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 website, 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
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 EVEN THINK 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 NEUROLOGISTS, 2 PHYSOCOLOGISTS, 2 ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS AND 2 PODIATRISTS. ALSO SINCE 2002 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 FIANCE 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:
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.
“It’s amazing how fast my feet are changing.”
God bless you, Janelle
Dr. Jarrett, Thought I would update you. I started the 22’s the end of March…Since the 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.
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. Thanks again for what you do. It is an answer to prayer.
– Shaun F.
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
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 dramatically.”
Thank you Robert Colbert
