Orthotic Use & Care


Before using your pre-molded or custom orthotics, be sure to remove all existing insoles or sockliners from your footwear, and then insert your orthotics.

Initial Use of Pre-Molded or Custom Orthotics

Most people can use their orthotics for a full day without experiencing any foot pain. However, others require a “break-in” period of several days before they can wear their orthotics all day. In these cases, we recommend you use your orthotics two hours the first day and an additional two hours each day thereafter. Normally within three to five days, your orthotics can be used for a full day’s activities.

Maintenance of Orthotics

Do not machine wash or dry your orthotics. You may wipe them with a damp cloth periodically.
