What to expect when you start wearing orthotics?

How long does it take to get used to wearing orthotics?

It usually takes one to two weeks to become completely used to wearing your orthotics but this time can differ from person to person. Most people can wear the orthotics full time in 3-5 days. ✓ You should start each day with your orthotics in your shoes.

Are orthotics uncomfortable at first?

Although your orthotics may eventually need adjusting, do your best to get used to them before making changes. After all, orthotics are rarely comfortable at first. That's because they essentially retrain affected muscles to work differently.

How should new orthotics feel?

Once in the shoes, the orthotics should feel fairly natural to your feet. They should provide contact over the entire bottom of your feet. It is normal to feel the orthotics slightly more or differently in one foot than in the other for the first few weeks.

Should you wear socks with orthotics?

If possible it is generally advised to wear socks or stocking with your orthotics (especially during the break in period). If you're someone who likes to wear your orthotics in shoes without socks, make sure you gently clean them regularly.
