My son is currently being treated for ankle tendonitis and Piriformis Syndrome both in his right leg. The discomfort began toward the end of cross country season this year. He has had some physical therapy and is going to be fitted for orthotics. The x-rays have been negative for any issues. Both the doctor and the therapist are pretty confident that the right kind of orthotics will help him. They really think this was caused by wearing the wrong running shoes. Assuming a dq, my question is: If the orthotics work and the minor pain is relieved, how long will DODMERB or West Point require him to be "cured" before moving forward in the process? He is taking no meds. Thank you very much.
