Been treated with orthotic insoles for bunions. Correct?

Hi. I have been treated with orthotic insoles for bunions but since I ve had the insoles, i ve been suffering with quite bad knee pain that is painfull even when bending down for a second or two and is painful after exercise and sometimes i find myself limping around. My hospital doctor (cant remember the proper name) said that it could be due to the insoles and to go to my GP. So thats what i did but she told me that its growing pains and that it will sort itself out within the next year but i cant help feeling that its not growing pains - I know what they feel like and its completely different to the pain that im getting now. Have you got any ideas what could be wrong?

Yes. Orthotic insoles do prevent the further progress of bunions. The deformity is best corrected surgically if painful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
