Sounds like the cause of the discrepancy is not from something out of alignment.
Then it sounds like the heel wedge will start to address the situation.
It sounds like she knows alot about the subject.
When you had a heel wedge before was it the correct size? Is the one suggested the same?
Have you addressed the type of shoes you are wearing and working out in?
Did you make any adjustments is anything when wearing the heel wedge in the past?
This changes things if you continued wearing the same pair of shoes they may have been off from your movement patterns when not wearing the wedge.
Did anyone who told you not to do use a wedge offer any other advice?
Did anyone who told you not to see you in person?
