Why you need your orthotics checked

At The Podiatry Practice, we believe it is crucial that orthotics are checked every 12 months.
Even if there have been no problems, an annual check-up ensures the orthotic prescription remains correct and enables symptoms to be controlled effectively. Orthotic review is particularly important for kids, whose prescription is also affected by growth, which may mean we need to replace the orthotics sooner than expected.

Although the “shell” of orthotics typically lasts between 2-5 years, covering materials and additions often require repair or replacement more frequently. This maintenance can be easily provided during an orthotic review appointment. When was the last time you had your orthotics checked?
