So basically around a year ago I got a new pair of insoles. I've been getting insoles all my life and once the podiatrist or orthotist gives them to me I just put them directly in my shoe without a second thought. HOwever, around a year ago I go to a podiatrist and I get an orthotic. He tells me that you have to break it in other wise your knees may hurt. I took his advice but at the same time I was kind of scared. Two days my knee are hurting and I got pretty angry at him as I thought that perhaps the insole was causing thae pain. However, could it really be that this pain was all hallucinated and I only had the pain because I got scared and as a resutl contaigously got this knee pain from the doctors warning. If I hallucinated pain that wasn't there then I have to say that's crazy how powerful the brain is.
