Breaking in your new orthotics

Most people immediately feel comfortable wearing new foot orthotics, whereas others need more time to adjust. At the beginning, the trick is to wear them as long as they are comfortable. If they bother your feet, take them out, and try them again later. Increase wear time as they become more comfortable.

After 2-3 weeks, you should be completely comfortable wearing orthotics for all activities. If you are not comfortable, call your nearest location for a follow-up or adjustment appointment.

Orthotics adjustments

It is normal for your orthotics to need some fine tuning to maximize their effectiveness. There is no additional charge for adjustments to new orthotics.

Care for your orthotics

If they become dirty, simply wipe them with a damp cloth and let them air dry face down. DO NOT put them close to any heat source.

Note: We make no guarantee as to the desired therapeutic effects of foot orthotics. However, we do guarantee that our orthotics will perform as prescribed and can be worn comfortably. We will make any necessary adjustment at no charge within the first 3 months.
