Wearing and Caring for Orthotics

If your foot doctor has prescribed orthotics, think of it as if you have been prescribed medication for a particular condition. In other words, use them!

Your doctor saw a problem in your feet, whether from an injury, disease or a physical abnormality that can be helped by these custom-made shoe inserts designed to support and comfort your feet. Your firm or semi-rigid orthotics will support your arches, redistribute your weight and/or correct alignment problems.

Follow these tips to become comfortable wearing your orthotics. And, importantly, learn how to take care of them – with proper maintenance, they can last for many years.
