My mare is navicular in all 4. We did corrective shoeing for almost 6 years, fixing the angles and having wedges and pads on. It worked for her if she was getting steady daily excersize, but the thrush she would get was HORRID. And if she was off for long periods of time it got worse with shoes.
She's been barefoot for 4 years now (lots of discussions, and help with vet AND farriers) and is completely sound.
I would get the vet and farrier out to discuss oprions/see what would best benefit her.
