How often should you replace your orthotics?
An orthotic device can help treat a multitude of podiatric problems. Just like anything else, they can wear out over time, so it’s important to check them every so often. Pay attention to how they feel on your feet. If they are uncomfortable, they most likely aren’t doing their job, and it may be time to have them replaced. Orthotics typically need replacement every few years, depending on their material and your lifestyle. If you are more active they may need to be replaced sooner. Take note of the condition of the orthotics and any changes in your feet, and get a professional opinion if something doesn’t look right.
To get custom-made orthotics made or replaced, give Dr. John Hollander a call at 707-578-1222 to schedule an appointment at our Santa Rosa, CA office. An orthotic can mean the difference between painful feet and living a fulfilled life doing the things you enjoy, so don’t suffer unnecessarily any longer.
