We’ve all had them. In fact, my staff and I encounter them weekly, if not daily. You know-that patient who needs more support and control than a foot orthosis alone can provide but for whom an AFO is overkill. What about a University of California Biomechanics Laboratory (UCBL) insert? In 40 years of practice, I’d bet that for every patient I’ve come across who actually liked his or her UCBL, I had ten others who found it to be terribly uncomfortable and therefore refused to wear it. This is where subtalar-control foot orthoses (SCFOs) come in to save the day.
